Industry Products Harvard Apparatus also has electrofusion, femtomole cell injectors and ventilation and anesthesia products to advance your cell and tissue engineering experimentation. Harvard Apparatus 800.272.2775 Holliston, MA Harvard Apparatus New Delivery System for Hand-held or Stereotaxic Mounting from Harvard Apparatus he Harvard Apparatus PHD ULTRA™ Nanomite Syringe Pump is lightweight, easy to hold and features foot pedal activation for hands-free injections. User-defined methods can be called up with the touch of the LCD touch screen. This feature enables new operators to easily retrieve and run any pre-defined delivery method, greatly enhancing injection repeatability and reducing the likelihood of user error. Though designed for fast bolus infusions, with high accuracy and precision, the PHD ULTRA™ Nanomite can easily deliver low nanoliter up to tens of ml/min injections with unmatched performance, particularly when combined with Harvard Apparatus micro needles as small as 37 gauge. The PHD ULTRA™ has flow ramping capability for superior spatially continuous volume injections into organs, muscle tissue, cells and neurons with minimal physiological impact. SDIX’s Salmonella Enteritidis Test Awarded AOAC Certification for Poultry Houses, Eggs, Chicken Rinses DIX has announced that its recently launched RapidChek® SELECT™ Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) test system has earned Performance-Tested MethodsSM (PTM) certification from the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC RI). The AOAC PTM certification validates RapidChek SELECT SE as equivalent to the FDA methodology for detecting SE in poultry house environments and pooled eggs. This new test can help the approximately 3,300 egg producing farmers meet the new FDA regulation that went into effect in July, 2010. The SDIX test performs significantly faster than the FDA’s Bacteriological Analytical Manual (BAM) method and other commercial tests, yielding results for environmental samples and eggs in only 2 days. The FDA method requires 5 days for environmental samples and 7 days for eggs. Other AOAC PTM-certified commercially available tests require considerably longer egg testing time to results. The SDIX test enables T S egg producers to comply with FDA regulations while getting the benefits of much shorter time-to-result, and thus enabling them to realize significant savings related to the cost of holding product. The AOAC PTM certification also demonstrated RapidChek SELECT’s equivalency to the USDAFSIS’ method for testing poultry meat products as performed on chicken carcass rinses. Poultry processors can couple the newly certified SE-specific test with SDIX’s AOAC PTM-certified Salmonella species test as a fast and cost-effective way to follow-up on positive results from this screening test. Zerlinde Johnson, AOAC Research Institute program manager, said, “In support of the egg industry’s need for validated analytical screening technologies for Salmonella Enteritidis, the AOAC Research Institute provides an independent third-party evaluation of technologies claiming to detect Salmonella Enteritidis. Peer-reviewed evaluations that support performance claims and demonstrate performance equivalent to, or better than, the FDA BAM method for Salmonella Enteritidis are granted AOAC Performance-Tested MethodsSM certification.” Tim Lawruk, food safety market manager at SDIX, said, “The RapidChek® SELECT™ SE test system can deliver results faster than the FDA BAM method but also adds increased sensitivity and accuracy.
