New Developments

REAL TIME ANALYSIS FOR ELISA AND DNA

The Burkard Automatic Multi-Vial Cyclone Sampler offers ‘Real Time’ rapid detection of airborne spore and particle matter. Samples are collected into 1.5 ml Eppendorf vials located on a carousel. The movement of the carousel and Eppendorf vials can be operated by external switching or remote control.

INSECT SUCTION SAMPLER

Following on from the success of the Vortis Insect Suction Sampler, work is in progress to offer this unit in a 'back-pack' format to increase the variety of environments in which it can be used. Development work is also being done to produce smaller mains power and battery operated units for static sampling in restricted and/or more specific situations. Larger, mains operated static samplers are also being developed.

COMPUTER CONTROLLED SPRAYER

Development of the computer controlled sprayer apparatus (CCSA) has now been completed. It offers a wide variety of pre-configured spray patterns and the ability to store custom patterns, thus permitting spray application without a computer connection.

A larger capacity version, capable of either spraying whole plants or target surfaces is also being developed. This will offer the ability to vary the dosage rate by changing the speed of the nozzle assembly over the target area.
