CD/DVD Duplication and Printing System
Primera Technology, Inc. (Plymouth, Minn.)

Primera Technology has released its Bravo Disc Publisher, an automated CD duplicating and printing system priced at less than $2,000. Bravo is designed for hands-free, automated production of up to 25 CDs or DVDs per job. A robotic mechanism is used to transport discs into the built-in 52x CD-R recorder or optional Pioneer combo DVD-R/CD-R recorder. After recording, discs are transported to the integrated printer and printed in full color at up to 2,400 dpi resolution. Bravo can be used for storage of medical images, including CT, MRI and ultrasound. Bravo attaches to any PC running Windows 2000/XP through its built-in FireWire (IEEE 1394) and USB interfaces and is equipped with Prassi PrimoDVD 2.0 duplication software. Bravo also attaches to any Mac running Apple OS X and uses Charismac Engineering’s Discribe V5.0 duplication software.

 Recirculating Chillers
Lytron Inc. (Woburn, Mass.)

Lytron is now selling the Thermocube recirculating chillers manufactured by Solid State Cooling Systems in the United States and Canada. The Thermocube is a compact, quiet CFC-free recirculating chiller which uses thermoelectric modules to control ?0.15 degrees Celsius the temperature of a fluid. These fluids are typically used to stabilize the operating temperature of equipment such as digital x-ray plates. The Thermocube is available in 300W and 400W capacities. At 12.75 inches by 11 inches, the Thermocube footprint is up to 40 percent smaller than a low-capacity, compressor-based chiller.
