What’s New and Exciting in the 2012-2013 catalog!

Silver Stain Kits - Seven new kits, including Steiner & Steiner, Warthin-Starry Stain Kit, Grocott Methenamine Silver Stain, and Reticulin Stains.

Stable Isotope Compounds - Over 200 stable isotope labeled compounds for use as mass spectroscopy internal standards and for obtaining clearer
results when analyzing NMR samples.

Biodegradable Polymers - Based on copolymers of polylactic acid (PLA) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) offering scientists new tools for controlled release formulations and delivery systems.

Biodegradable Particles - Offered in two PLGA polymers (50:50 and 75:25 Lactic Acid/Glycolic Acid) in three narrow sizes (75μm, 100μm and 120μm).
These highly uniform particle populations serve as excellent models for controlled degradation rate measurements, and for the development of prototype scaffolds or devices.

SureCount™ Particle Count Standards - Suspensions of polymer microspheres intended for the validation and monitoring of particle counters and supporting sample preparation processes. SureCount™ Standards are available in diameters of 3μm, 5μm, 10μm and 15μm. Diameters are traceable to NIST
