New quick tests for detection of fecal occult blood

Biohit is extending its range of diagnostic tests with ColonView Hb and Hb/Hp quick tests, which are intended to aid early diagnosis and prevention of colorectal cancer. ColonView testing can be used for simple and cost-effective identification of patients with fecal occult blood, which is a well-known marker for colorectal cancer and pre-cancerous large adenomas. ColonView testing can also give information on possible other disease of the gastrointestinal tract that is associated with bleeding.

See full release.



Sterile dispenser tips for demanding laboratory applications are now available

Biohit can now offer both non-sterile and pre-sterilised tips for eLINE Dispenser users. The tips are also compatible with the Biohit Mechanical Stepper.

Biohit eLINE Dispenser Tips are based on contamination free, positive displacement principle. The pre-sterilised tips are individually wrapped and certified DNase, RNase, ATP and pyrogen free. They are an excellent choice for safer and demanding laboratory work in medical, pharmaceutical and food industries, and in applications which have high purity requirements, for example, PCR, microbiology, molecular biology and cell technology laboratories.

At the moment, the pre-sterilised range includes tips within the volume range 0.1 ml to 10 ml, and the non-sterile range 0.1 ml to 50 ml.

eLINE Dispenser provides the most convenient and ergonomic approach to multiple dispensing

The electronic Biohit eLINE Dispenser is part of the eLINE family and continues the success story of the eLINE electronic pipette. Together with the tips, eLINE Dispenser is the ideal tool for repetitive dispensing.

The unique TipGuide of eLINE Dispenser selects and displays the most suitable tip size, which saves time and eliminates the possibility of an incorrect tip selection. Additionally, another unique feature is the electronic tip ejection, which reduces the risk of RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury).

The automated dispensing function and its comprehensive range of liquid handling protocols make the new eLINE Dispenser a convenient, ergonomic and versatile choice for any challenge of dispensing. The positive displacement principle of the tips guarantees contamination free pipetting, and makes the dispenser particularly useful with viscous (e.g. glycerol, oils), radioactive and high vapour pressure (e.g. ethanol, acetone) liquids.
