Triple display constantly shows minimum/maximum, and current temperatures. Instantly view if freezer, water bath, or incubator is within temperature spec. Monitor temperature of any experiment when you’re not there—overnight, weekends. Range is –58 to 158°F or –50 to 70°C. Resolution is 1° and accuracy is ±1°C. Sensor and 10-foot cable may be placed under water, in refrigerator, or freezer. Small cable diameter (1/16-inch) allows refrigerator doors to close on it with no effect. Unplugging the cable activates a sensor inside the unit for monitoring ambient room temperature.

Photo of Touch-Counter

Touch-Counter™ is a combination marker and counter designed for the lab and plant. Each time an item is touched; it is automatically marked by the felt- tip pen and counted by the built-in digital counter. Use it to count sample bottles, cell growths, and to receive/inventory/ship supplies. Operation is simple: Touch an item and it is marked and counted simultaneously. Impossible to make an error, even when interrupted. Marks hold your place and counter holds your total. Durable aluminum unit has an audible click, zero reset knob, and a 9999-digit counter.

Organize and classify your slides for instant reference and fingertip-fast retrieval. Use the index-card Microscope Slide Holders to sort, classify, or arrange slides in any order. Fingers never touch the slide. Cards may be added, removed, or changed for fast updating and filing—insert a new card anywhere. You will never outgrow this system. Adapts instantly to your slide ID system (numbers, letters, dates, names, or color coding). Visible, four-position tabs provide “always in sight” indexing.

A unique aerosol designed to rapidly cool any material. Cyto-Freeze™ is the fastest coolant available. Excellent for cooling liquid, semi-solid, and solid samples. Use for ultra-rapid freezing of fresh tissue, cooling of liquids to force precipitates prior to filtration, and chilling of field samples. During cryostat sectioning, Cyto-Freeze™ flash freezes tissues instantly. It cools to –60°F (–50° C) in three seconds. To cut sections, simply mount tissue directly on a microtome holder, spray, and section. Saves time and eliminates water crystals caused by slower freezing methods.

Six scientific shapes for manipulation of micro work. Microprobes are ideal for lab applications—positioning samples under a microscope, dissecting, inspecting, soldering, gluing, and all micro-manipulation in the lab. Probes are excellent for hooking small springs, packing columns, cleaning miniature parts, and soldering boards (solder will not stick to probes). Precision-ground, highly polished, hardened, and tempered stainless-steel instruments are designed for quality-control and experimental requirements. The tips are hand-honed to needle sharpness.

Perfect for handling extremely small samples with ease. Use spatulas to dispense/transfer expensive chemicals, place particulate matter in weighing containers, apply micro amounts of adhesive for tacking down specimens, and mix small granular samples. Use with balances, microscopes, and weighing boats. Flat-ended, steel blades have widths of 0.004 to 0.04 inches (0.1 mm, 0.3 mm, 0.5 mm, and 1.0 mm). Handles are color-coded for easy size identification. Overall length is 2-1/2 inches (6 cm).

Photo of Control Company 3345 Adjustable Spray Wash Bottle, 240 mL

Wash Bottles have an adjustable spray for every requirement. Set the nozzle on fine mist for TLC plates, position it to needle to rinse glassware, and pump a continuous, forceful jet on the big stream position for washing filters. The pump trigger is comfortable for one-handed operation, provides controlled delivery, and requires a very light pressure. Ease of use reduces finger fatigue when continuously pumping or rinsing a series of tubes. Contoured to fit in the hand, it makes the awkward-to-grasp, difficult-to-pump, and impossible-to-control squeeze bottle obsolete.
