The depleting petroleum storage and increasing environmental deterioration are threatening the sustainable development of human societies. As such, biofuels and chemical feedstocks generated from renewable sources are becoming increasingly important. Although previous efforts...
Inappropriate prescribing (IP) in older patients is highly prevalent and is associated with an increased risk of adverse drug events (ADEs), morbidity, mortality and healthcare utilisation. Consequently, IP is a major safety concern and with changing population demographics, it...
While rare-earth magnets are very efficient at removing unwanted contamination, they can be very dangerous to maintenance personnel if not handled properly.
Flow-injection determination of retinol and tocopherol in pharmaceuticals with acidic potassium permanganate chemiluminescence.January 19, 2010 6:38 pm | by Anal Sci | Comments
A simple and rapid flow-injection method is reported for the determination of retinol, its derivatives and alpha-tocopherol by its enhancement effect on a potassium permanganate-formaldehyde chemiluminescence system in an acidic medium. Linear calibration graphs were obtained...
Sulfadiazine-potentiometric sensors for flow and batch determinations of sulfadiazine in drugs and biological fluids.January 19, 2010 6:38 pm | by Anal Sci | Comments
New PVC membrane electrodes for the determination of sulfadiazine (SDZ) are presented. The electrodes are fabricated with conventional and tubular configurations with a graphite-based electrical contact, and no internal reference solution. The selective membranes consist of...
For the assessment of wall thicknesses of tank shells, SGS used an ultrasonic crawler, a tool designed to cost-effectively take thickness measurements on above-ground ferro-magnetic structures.
Dürr Systems saved Central Motor Wheel of America 80 percent in fuel consumption and a projected $427,000 per year based upon fuel costs and production hours.
A pharmaceutical manufacturer was able to transition from manual business processes to an integrated enterprise resource planning software system in three months.
China is run by Engineers that understand the importance of manufacturing and construction as the major wealth creating sector of a modern society.
As the final touch in its quality-conscious endeavor, The Really Cool Food Company relies on AdvanChek x-ray inspection systems and Beltweigh XE checkweighers from Mettler-Toledo.
Wind power plants are no longer a niche playground for environmental proponents, but a serious business where cost efficiency, life cycle costs, reliability and availability of the components must be considered.
Automation allows packagers to increase production, consistency and reliability, while improving working conditions and allowing manufacturers to quickly change to more eco-friendly packaging materials.
Food companies like Country Maid are using a combination of hardware and software modules to integrate accounts with ingredients, weights and batch numbers.
A major winery had to practically shut down their grape receiving station after installing a computer-grade “switching” uninterruptible power system.
We present the results of a study of light emissions from a polarized micro-cavity Organic Light-Emitting Device (OLED), which consisted of a flexible, anisotropic one-dimensional (1-D) photonic crystal (PC) film substrate. It is shown that luminous Electroluminescent (EL)...
