Sony Unveils 8% More Efficient PS4, 1TB Ultimate Player Edition

Sony announced that PS4 Slim, its latest console has been on the market for 19 months now, and it’s time to roll out a new model with some efficiency and cost savings built-in. The new PS4 is model CUH-1200, and there are three significant changes to the hardware. The first is an 8% power saving when in use compared to the existing model. The second is a 10% reduction in the weight of the console. And the third, and most noticeable change, is the hard drive cover section of the casing. It now matches the matte finish of the rest of the case. The reduction in weight suggests Sony has managed to combine some of the hardware components the PS4 uses, and therefore shrink them in size and weight. This would also explain the power savings, as smaller, more efficient parts require less power and probably less cooling, too (another weight saver). The change in the finish of the hard drive cover will surely be welcome to a lot of gamers. Sony has announced the 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition. Unusually, Sony has decided to only announce it for Europe and PAL territories for now, with a release date of July 15, 2015.

Sony Announces Launch of Fully Automated Spectral Cell Analyzer

Sony announced the launch of a fully automated spectral cell analyzer equipped with a newly developed autosampler that employs 3-dimensional drive, which simplifies operation and enables rapid analysis of large numbers of samples. A flow cytometer is a device that irradiates cells stained with a fluorescent reagent with a laser and analyzes the types and properties of the cells by measuring fluorescence and scattered light. Flow cytometers are widely used in cellular research fields such as immunology, oncology, and regenerative medicine, as well as in drug discovery. Particularly in realms like drug discovery and biomarker discovery, which require analysis of many types of cells, there is a real need for the capacity to analyze large numbers of specimen rapidly, efficiently, and accurately. With conventional autosamplers, the well plate moves horizontally, while the sample suction probe moves vertically to collect the samples. The consequence of this is that the sample must traverse a relatively long distance before reaching the measuring unit, and this can cause issues with processing speed and carryover ratio (the rate of cross contamination between samples). The SA3800's newly developed autosampler employs a stationary sample suction probe and a well plate that moves in three dimensions (X, Y, Z axes), thus speeding the sample acquisition and analysis process. Additionally, the probe has a built-in self-washing function that further reduces the carryover ratio to 0.1% or less. These capabilities enable the SA3800 to realize stable yet high-speed sample collection, which is a much sought after feature for the analysis of large numbers of samples.
