Determination of dry content and moisture content in vaccum

Farmacéutica Paraguaya, in short, Fapasa, is the largest exporting pharmaceutical company in Paraguay. Apart from drugs for oncological, urological and gynaecological applications, the company also produces a large range of OTC products, nutritional supplements and painkillers.

Development of polymer membranes

The Nanoscience Institute of Aragón in Zaragoza is supported by Memmert vacuum ovens in its research, in particular into the development of a polymer membrane with improved permeability and selectivity.

Peltier-cooled incubator IPP, ideal for protein crystallography

Hardly any vibrations, almost no noise, highly precise and accurate. The PhosphoSites research group at the University Hospital in Frankfurt, doing basic research on protein kinases, cultivates its protein crystals in a Memmert incubator IPP.

Preparation of samples of marine sediments in the cooled incubator

The mission of the research ship Belgica is the exploration of the marine ecosystem of the North Sea. The marine scientists on board use the journey home, which takes several days, to dry out their samples of marine sediments in the ICP incubator in the so-called wet laboratory.

Construction material concrete: efficient test assembly for various concrete mixes.

Only a few materials other than the construction material concrete can withstand such loads: In order to be eventually categorised as frost-resistant, concrete components have to undergo hours-long warm and cold baths alternating between –20 °C and +20 °C 56 times.

Controlled atmosphere: Even the beehive is 100% AtmoSAFE

Memmert has become rather enamoured with the honey bee. Consequently, for this reason and indeed many other reasons, we are supporting the Hobos project. This exciting project aims to bring this wonderful creature, which is irreplaceable to our planet, closer to both schoolchildren and students throughout the world.

Science can be exciting and fun

Outside scientific circles, few people are aware just how exciting working in a laboratory can be. For this reason, the news magazine FOCUS and the vfa, the German Association of Research-based Pharmaceutical Companies, have presented awards to photographers, now for the fifth time, who document the fascination of science and research in a spectacular, original and illustrative manner. 104 photographers, with over 400 pictures, submitted entries in 2009.

Energy efficiency in the laboratory

It is well known that many people have a blind spot that time and again prevents them from saving energy to counteract climate change and the shortage of resources. Time pressure, convenience or the feeling of not being able to get anything done all by yourself all too often stand in the way of the best intentions where climate protection is concerned.

Special customer-specific solutions

“For a complex customer-specific solution, sometimes specialists from the fields of electronics, mechanics and heating and cooling technology are involved at the same time“, explains Heinz Bayer, head of Technical Sales at Memmert. Because on the one hand, the Memmert seal of approval, 100% controlled atmosphere, also applies to individual solutions, on the other the delivery time also has to be right.

Hygiene is the top priority when testing drinking water quality for Legionnaire‘s disease
