Organize & Transport Supplies with our NEW Carts!

Our NEW line of Multi Storage Carts consolidate, organize and transport supplies in a variety of industries, such as medical, dental, hospitality, and even in the home.  Store and transport supplies effortlessly from area to area using carts made from chemically resistant high-density polyethylene and ABS - Manufactured in the USA! 

                                 Ten Ways Carts Solve Problems:

1. Save time by storing, transporting and using clean glassware, labware or plasticware right from the carts. Carts are simply cabinets on wheels offering portable storage. Many carts have large compartments for dust-protected storage.

2. Save steps and repeated trips by storing and transporting dirty glassware, labware or plasticware to sink or dishwasher right on a cart. Use carts to go around the lab or office collecting dirty glassware for safe transportation to the sink or dishwasher.

3. Use lab carts to offer private and secure transportation for sensitive samples or animals. TrippNT Lab Islands™ offer very large storage areas with easy pull-out shelves to make contents easily accessible. Several carts have easy-sliding, locking roll-top doors.

4. Make a "mini lab" on wheels, storing your personal favorite tools and supplies for easy access all over your lab or office.

5. Put a lab cart outside a sample-receiving area to collect, receive, analyze and return without transferring from container to container.

6. Create easy access for instrument maintenance by using mobile lab benches as a movable instrument bench for HPLC's, GC's, AA's and other small benchtop lab machines.

7. Use the carts as place holders to protect or direct traffic in an office, lab, visitor center, hallway or open area while offering forms, supplies, pens and a place to write.

8. Color code or number carts for each special project or product. They can store and localize all associated reports, samples and results as it travels along your pipeline.

9. Stock a cart with bulk supplies and use to make rounds filling up smaller containers for personal use. Save collecting and transporting a lot of small items.

10. Lab carts add flexibility to your lab or work area by being able to reconfigure bench space to accommodate the equipment, tools, glassware and supplies required for different projects.

High-speed File Transfer Performance
The RDF8 USB 3.0 card reader is equipped with a next-generation SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection interface that delivers transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 card readers.

Designed to unleash the full potential of next generation memory cards, the RDF8 USB 3.0 card reader boasts a total of four slots: a CompactFlash (CF) slot compatible with UDMA CF cards, an SDHC/SDXC slot that supports the new UHS-1 standard, a smaller slot for M2/microSD cards, and a slot for MS PRO/MSXC/MS DUO cards. The RDF8 is also backwards compatible with the USB 2.0 interface and accepts older versions of CF, SD, and SDHC cards, making the card reader quite practical for today`s digital needs.
RecoveRx Brings Deleted Photos Back to Life
The prospect of losing precious, once-in-a-lifetime shots to camera or memory card malfunction is a longstanding fear that looms in the minds of professional and amateur photographers alike. For extra peace of mind, the RDF8, like all other Transcend card readers, comes with a free download of Transcend’s powerful and user-friendly RecoveRx software. Compatible with both Mac and Windows, this amazing data recovery tool can effectively recover lost, deleted or damaged photos and other digital files from multiple types of memory cards.

The RDF8 USB 3.0 multi card reader  is backed by Transcend’s two-year limited warranty.

Introducing SO-DIMM Industrial Memory Modules

Introducing a complete lineup of industrial-grade SO-DIMM modules. Comprised of high-quality DRAM chips and components, these new memory modules are an ideal choice for demanding and non-stop applications such as transportation, POS terminals, embedded systems, medical computing and industrial manufacturing.

Transcend’s industrial-grade SO-DIMM series includes DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules.  To ensure extra stability, all of these modules must pass rigorous temperature testing before they are deemed ready for operation and released into the market. With industrial range (-40° to 85ÂșC) operating temperature flexibility, the new wide-temp memory modules are specially engineered to maintain high performance even in extreme environments.

With thicker Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) and 30u” gold contacts that are ten times thicker than standard PCBs, Transcend’s wide-temperature SO-DIMM modules are durable enough to withstand frequent insertion and removal, and also provide much better signal quality. Additionally, the modules use industrial grade capacitors to ensure stable output voltages. This design allows for more efficient filtering in applications requiring maximum reliability, such as safety-critical industrial applications, medical instrumentation, etc.

Transcend’s industrial-grade SO-DIMM modules are currently available in the following varieties: 512MB DDR 400MHz, 1~2GB DDR2 533/667/800MHz, and 1~4GB DDR3 1333MHz memory. The new SO-DIMM memory modules are backed by Transcend’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
