We so often run into balances in our customer’s laboratories that have been around for 10-20 years. If you read this sentence and wonder how those customers keep their balances in such great conditions for that long, then this article is meant for you.
In this article Jim Palmer gives an explanation as to what mass metrology and mass comparator are and how they are used in the laboratory.
Different companies have adopted different strategies to mitigate their respective challenges in the field of laboratory data management. SAAS based, or In-the-cloud LIMS, offers a standardized way to help commercial and academic institutions in managing their laboratory data across the globe. We analyze the Total Cost of Ownership of ‘In-the-cloud’ LIMS to understand its applicability as a standardized and cost effective solution to current laboratory data management challenges.
What do you see as the single biggest unmet need in pharmaceutical / biopharmaceuticals today?
In many process automation applications, the pressure and flow of gases are controlled. Explosion protection requirements mean that an inert atmosphere is often created and maintained in reactors and process tanks in a plant. This is usually done with nitrogen and in some cases also with argon. Other applications include the transfer of materials between process tanks and filling, using inert gas, air, sterile air and carbon dioxide.
Analytical laboratories have to provide sound results in a short time. Speed and reproducibility play a significant role here. Modern automation technology saves time, increases quality and reduces costs for the transport and distribution of samples. Ready-to-install subsystems from Festo are opening up new possibilities for efficient processes in laboratory automation.
The global market for valves and valve terminals today is so large that it is almost impossible to maintain an overview. Often, price seems the only buying criterion. But it pays to look more closely, particularly with regard to higher productivity and process reliability.
The majority of electro-mechanical axis utilise extruded aluminium profile in a range of sizes with a single guide rail and bearing arrangement driven by an electric motor through a belt or ball screw arrangement.
XENIOS announced recently that its i-cor Synchronized Cardiac Assist System has received CE marking and can now be sold in Europe as the world’s first heartbeat-synchronized cardiac assist for cardiogenic shock and high-risk interventions
