laird plc (LARRF) Key Developments

Laird plc Unveils New PCR Cycler Evaluation Kit

Laird plc has unveiled new polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, cycler evaluation kit. The company's new Evaluation Kit enables faster and more reliable results for DNA replication processes. This allows medical equipment manufacturers and solutions providers to offer their customers more reliable and accurate results in less time which allows for shortened drug development times and increased throughput in testing labs. For example, when diagnosing hereditary diseases, identifying genetic fingerprints (used in forensic sciences and paternity testing), and detecting or diagnosing infectious diseases, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is often used to replicate the DNA being tested.

Laird Introduces Two New, In-Building, Public Safety Antennas

Laird introduced two new, in-building, public safety antennas with frequency performance that ensure more reliable communications and greater connectivity for emergency responders. Radio communications can be unreliable inside large and small facilities, multi-floor and high-rise office buildings, apartment complexes and public venues. In-building structural, mechanical and electrical generated interference and the many obstructions encountered by emergency personnel moving through the building weakens two-way radio and wireless device signals causing communications to be dropped. A lack of reliable communication can be dangerous for emergency responders like police, paramedics and firefighters, as well as for the building occupants they are trying to help. To ensure consistent, highly reliable emergency voice & data radio coverage inside buildings, Laird engineers have designed a range of new antennas for a Distributed Antenna System (DAS). The Canonical Minimum Scattering (CMS) Standard and CMS Low Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Omnidirectional DAS Antennas deliver superior wide band performance across the 380-960 MHz and 1,395-6,000 MHz bands including the Advanced Wireless Services (AWS-3) band and LTE 600 MHz band. All of this from one aesthetically pleasing and compact housing built for highly reliable operation in extremely harsh conditions. Both antennas are IP67 rated for dirt and dust intrusion and temporary water immersion making them ideal for highly reliable operation in harsh indoor and outdoor conditions. Compliant with in-building International Fire Code (IFC) & National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) regulations the CMS Standard and Low PIM antennas support applications including multi-floor and high rise office buildings, industrial and apartment complexes and public venues.
