Determination of olive oil purity

UV-Vis spectroscopy is widely used for verification of the purity of different types of olive oil samples. Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which are essentially all long chain fatty acids. Various scientific works have shown that these fatty acids help in lowering cholesterol levels along with lowering heart diseases. The oxidation is […]

Density Meter Applications

A comprehensive quality assurance covering the entire production process is a must in any industrial sector. Density measurements are frequently used for this purpose, especially in the pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical as well as the food and beverage industry. They allow the manufacturer to analyse raw materials, semi-finished and finished products as well as the manufacturing […]

What is a Pipette Cone Filter?

Capp pipette cone filters are small pieces of Polyethylene (PE), designed to be inserted in the tip cone of a 1 and 5mL ecopipette and 5 or 10mL CappBravo pipette. They are available in bags of 25 or 50 pcs. Their hydrophobic structure with high density creates a perfect barrier for corrosive vapors and other contaminants. […]

Automation with Refractometers

Maximum efficiency and increased time savings through automation options With our refractometers DR6000-TF with integrated Peltier element, the entire measuring process can be carried out semi-automatically or fully automatically and without manual intervention, from sample supply through cleaning to drying. Due to automation, measurements can be user-independent and overnight or at the weekend. This increases […]

Pipette storage -Tips on how to store your pipettes

Being high precision instruments suitable for liquid transfers of volumes as small as 0.1µl, pipettes are quite vulnerable to improper pipette storage.  Horizontal pipette storage on the bench may cause the piston lubricant to cumulate on one side, or even drop of the piston, resulting in a heavy piston movement. Laying your pipette down on […]

Ecological Lab – Capp’s “Eco-Friendly” Pipette

Ecological lab is often associated with studying the ecosystems and ecological processes in a specially created laboratory environment. At Capp, we aimed our focus on making the laboratory equipment eco-friendly. We asked ourselves: what happens with all the old models of pipettes, being put aside or out of function? Made of plastic, metal, rubber and […]

Why RNase certified tips are so crucial for your lab work?

RNase and DNase contamination is a major concern for molecular biology laboratories. Contamination can lead to loss of time, money, and data. Ribonuclease (RNase) is an enzyme that degrades RNA. It can be found in the oils from hands, face, arms, hair, saliva, tears and bacteria from a non-sterile environment. It is exceptionally stable and […]
