Laboratory benching

Our Cleanline range offers one of the most robust styles of Metal Framed Laboratory Benching systems available.

The system consists of epoxy powder coated 50 x 25 metal support legs linked together with epoxy powder coated extruded alluminium rail sections. The legs can be either cantilever, “C Frame” or “A Frame” depending on the weight load rating required.

The selected work surface is then fixed directly on to the framework. This style of benching can incorporate either mobile or suspended cupboard units.

Labelling products

Brady Bench-top/Desk-top printers offer a full range of capabilities and options to provide high quality, cost-effective printing on a complete line of labelling materials. Brady also offers a complete line of portable printing systems that help you get the job done fast and efficiently. Perfect for lower volume printing applications.

Thermal Alarms

Monitor and protect your valuable samples with a thermal alarm system using either radio signals or GSM technology. These can be used for freezers, LN2 storage vessels, incubators, isolators, cold rooms and any other equipment which can utilize a non volt contact. Up to 126

GSM, Wireless Alarm, Monitoring and Data Logging Systems allow laboratory and hospital equipment such as Liquid Nitrogen, ULT Freezers, Fridges, Freezers and Incubators to be alarmed, monitored and data logged. The temperature transmitter range is -200°C to +100°C with an accuracy of 0.1°C. Over a thousand systems are currently in 24 hour service protecting valuable product in LN2 vessels and refrigerated storage throughout the UK.

Our systems ensure the safety and continued effectiveness of medicines, blood products and samples required to be held at specific refrigeration and freezer temperatures. Due to the high value of many of these goods, QA programs increasingly require that storage temperatures are to be verified several times per day and that records be maintained. Our Systems will meet the alarm, monitoring and logging requirements.

Water Purification

RO is cost effective in removing major impurities to provide primary grade water suitable for feeding such equipment as glassware washers which typically need type 3 water. RO water provides a good supply for the ultrapure water purification equipment which will “polish” it further to produce type 1 water. RO water can also be used in a central ring main with many points of use around a building.

General laboratory grade water is of a higher quality than primary grade water is achieved using reverse osmosis and a further technoogy such as deionisation or electrical ion exchange. Typical aplications are reagent or buffer make up, feeding a clinical analyser, autoclave, environmental chamber and general applications.

Ultrapure water is essential for many applications in the laboratory today. Triple Red can provide a reliable source of ultrapure water from your drinking water supply and if you also need pure water you can take this from the tank.

Typical applications:
•General analysis
•Standard buffer
•Cell and tissue culture
•Pyrogen sensitive applications
•Micro-und molecularbiology
•TOC analysis

Press releases

  • Triple Red announces portable label makers with bluetooth.

    New Brady BMP™51 and BMP™53 portable label makers feature built-in Bluetooth® technology for wireless printing.

    Bluetooth® technology enables the creation, editing and printing of labels using your Android Smartphone

    The labels can now be designed on an Android Smartphone, using a Brady Mobile Application, and printed wirelessly.

    The BMP™51 and BMP™53 Label Makers are designed for efficient and instant label printing. Both come with a built-in Brady Network Card with Bluetooth® technology and an optional Wi-Fi card to provide wireless printing options. The only difference between the two is that the BMP™51 Label Maker is the stand alone version that features an LCD screen and a QWERTY keyboard to allow for a more traditional way of designing labels.

    “The BMP 51 and 53 are the first printers that are equipped with Bluetooth connectivity to our newly launched free Brady Mobile Application for Android. Brady Mobile allows field workers to print labels ‘on the go’ from their Android Smartphone, without the need to carry a laptop or any other device,” explains Gino Van der Ven, Regional Product Manager for Brady Corporation. Brady Mobile was specifically designed for easy creation of label templates. It includes a bar coding feature and a wide variety of symbols and pictograms.

    Another new feature is the easy-to-load cartridge which contains both the label material and ribbon so that they can run out at the same time. Both models also offer a smart cell technology that allows the printer to automatically select the format of the label that corresponds to the chosen material. In addition to the cartridge design, both label makers also offer a durable built-in cutter, high speed print and USB PC connectivity for advanced label design with Brady’s LabelMark™ Labelling Software. There are a number of power supply options to suit any preference. Use either label maker with AA batteries, AC power supply, or a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
