Lampworking - Ace Didymium
Schott Glass Technologies has developed a new contrast enhancement glass for spectacle lenses. The new material, called ACE, short for "Amethyst Contrast Enhancer," utilizes rare earth oxides in the glass composition to achieve the unique colour enhancing characteristics.

Basically, the colour enhancement concept works by selectively positioning transmission in the blue, green, and red spectral regions whereby one can improve the colour discrimination between different colour objects. These are the same colours used to produce a colour television picture. They optimize the readability of such displays under high ambient light conditions.
 
ACE Glass utilizes rare earth oxides in its composition to provide the same filtration. This glass is very efficient in filtering sodium flare in addition to providing ultraviolet protection to 390 mm. The 2 ACE glass is becoming a preferable choice of lamp workers. It is very comfortable for viewing under high ambient light conditions such as when working with glowing heat sources for a duration of time. Also, although it has a relatively low luminous transmission of 38%, it is not recommended for sun protection use unless UV filtering coatings are applied.

MicroJet Autoclave

  The modern Microjet Personal Microwave Autoclave has a space saving, benchtop design. One of the main USP's of the Microjet is its fast sterilisation process; owing to the application of "Direct Energy Transfer technology". The “Direct Energy Transfer technology” is a revolutionary process which utilises microwave automation, instead of the traditional 'pressure cooker' approach.   Microjet Personal Microwave Autoclave Benefits:   It only takes 7 minutes* to sterilise (5 times faster than traditional sterilisation) Operation of the autoclave is intuitive, it does not require additional training Touchscreen Technology: The modern design of the autoclave means all functions are touchscreen operated. To improve lab efficiency, the Microjet includes modern functionalities, including real-time monitoring of the sterilisation progress Liquid media such as microbiological media, buffer solutions, carbohydrate solutions or water can be sterilised in standard laboratory vessels of 100 to 500 ml capacity  Temperature resistant up to 135°C (glass or plastic – PMP, PP, PTFE, FEP) Each operation is automatically stored on a Micro SD card As the data is stored in a format compatible with GLP, it can be copied to any PC and read using the inclusive ENBIO Data Viewer software. Competitively Priced 2 year warranty * based on using a 150ml volume Duran bottle   Microjet Personal Microwave Autoclave Specifications:   Sterilisation temperature: 135°C Exposure time to process temperature: 25 s Heating time: 1-5 min Cooling time: 4-12 min Total process duration: 7-15 min Power supply: 230 V/50-60Hz Power output: 0,95 kW Maximum power consumption: 8 A Operating pressure: 3,4 bar Weight: 15 kg Dimensions: 280 x 280 x 427 mm Process chamber capacity: 2 dm3 EM wave frequency: 2450 MHz Protection: IP 20 Data Logging: micro SD card
