Description by the supplier

This listing is for a Medite A550 Rotary MicrotomeDeveloped and manufactured by experts in GermanyThe fully automatic Microtome A550 is the premium model for use in histology and histopathology as well as in research laboratories and in industrial quality assurance. With this microtome version, both the horizontal feed and retraction and the vertical cutting stroke are motorized. This means physical relief for the user during intensive, long-term use. Alternatively, the cutting stroke can also be carried out manually using the smooth-running handwheel, if, for example, sensitive cuts are necessary for very fragile tissue samples. The handwheel can easily be locked in any position using a spring lever. The proven, high-precision microtome mechanism is developed and produced in Germany and ensures maximum sectioning quality for continuously high sample throughput.The Microtome A550 impresses with its high functionality and attractive design that are focused on optimal ease of use. Settings relevant to the sections are entered via the intuitively operated membrane keyboard with digital display. The background color is freely selectable.The upper rotary push button on the left is used to switch between fine and coarse adjustment and to scroll through the menu. With the middle, larger rotary push button, the specimen clamp is simply moved back and forth. This can also be done using the keyboard. The sectioning speed can be set with the lower rotary push button and two different speeds can be selected for trimming and fine sectioning.

Eppendorf BioPhotometer Plus UV/Vis Spectrophotometer. Measuring wavelengths at 230, 260, 280, 340,  (more)405, 490, 550, 595 and 650 nm. Single-beam instrument. The photometer provides instant, ready-to-use access to 32 routine methods, of which 9 methods can be freely programmed: i) DNA, RNA and protein concentration measurement (UV and colorimetric); ii) Incorporation rate of fluorescent molecules (550 nm/650 nm), e. g., for microarray experiments; iii) Enzymatic assays (e.g., peroxidase, alkaline phosphatase, β-galactosidase); and, iv) Optical density of the cells (OD 600). Suitable for 10*10 mm cuvettes. Operating panel with digital screen. User manual. Eppendorf offers the compact BioPhotometer Plus spectrophotometer for use in molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology. All measurements and calculations of results are done with the click of a button and all data related to the analysis results can be seen at a glance. This ensures safe, error-free operation and reliable results. In addition to being lightweight, the photometer is small but extremely durable thanks to its sturdy metal casing, which makes it easy to transport and clean. The BioPhotometer plus is designed for use with cuvettes such as the Eppendorf UVette®, but is also optimized for small volume measurements using microliter cells such as the Hellma® TrayCell. Its fields of application include: Quantification of nucleic acids (dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA, Oligo); Protein quantification (280 nm, Bradford, Lowry, BCA); Cell density measurement (OD600); Absorption of fluorescent dyes (550/650 dyes, e.g. Cy-3, Cy-5); Enzymatic assays: calculation-free determination of endpoints (e.g., enzyme activity or cellular bioassays) and direct absorbance measurements at individual wavelengths (230 nm, 260 nm, 280 nm, nm).
