Modern genomics labs are looking for high-throughput, quality-data workstations to perform PCR reactions at a reduced cost. PCR reaction setup is a tedious and time consuming process as it requires mixing multiple reagents in specific ratios to achieve the proper master mix for amplification. Moreover, the exact volumes of the reagents and buffers depend upon the total number of samples to be amplified and the desired final concentration of sample DNA. Automation of such procedures eliminates both human error and contamination problems generally associated with manual process. To provide an automated solution to such a cumbersome protocol, Aurora Biomed’s VERSA 110 PCR Setup Workstation was developed for the preparation of reagents and samples used in an amplification protocol in 96-well format.

Phosgene COCl2 is a colorless gas. While it has been used as a Chemical Weapon Agent (CWA) in the past, currently this poisonous gas is also an important reagent in synthesis in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The plants using phosgene are typically equipped with gas sensors to detect leaks in the indoor ambient air. The critical situations arise when equipment in contact with the gas at the manufacturing facilities are serviced and maintained. As phosgene is very poisonous, even small gas pockets in serviced equipment may be dangerous to maintenance personnel. Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzers are ideal tools to monitor point sources of phosgene. The measurement technology has high specificity, may be operated continuously, and has a fast response time.
