Cheap Rubbish from China is Myth

January 12, 2010 12:40 pm | Comments

China is run by Engineers that understand the importance of manufacturing and construction as the major wealth creating sector of a modern society.

Really Cool Food Becomes Really Safe, Too

January 12, 2010 5:31 am | Comments

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.


Quality Assurance for Wind Turbine Parts

January 7, 2010 11:24 am | Comments

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.


Packaging Sustainability with Flexible Automation

January 4, 2010 12:25 pm | by Rush LaSelle, director of worldwide sales & marketing for Adept Technology Inc. | Comments

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.

Addressing Food Traceability Legislation

A major winery had to practically shut down their grape receiving station after installing a computer-grade “switching” uninterruptible power system.

Polarized micro-cavity organic light-emitting devices.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Opt Express | Comments

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)...

Exceptionally efficient organic light emitting devices using high refractive index substrates.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Opt Express | Comments

Organic light emitting devices (OLEDs) are now used in commercial cell phones and flat screen displays, but may become even more successful in lighting applications, in which large area, high efficiency, long lifetime and low cost are essential. Due to the relatively high...


Absorption and quasiguided mode analysis of organic solar cells with photonic crystal photoactive layers.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Opt Express | Comments

We analyze optical absorption enhancements and quasiguided mode properties of organic solar cells with highly ordered nanostructured photoactive layers comprised of the bulk heterojunction blend, poly-3-hexylthiophene/[6,6]-phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (P3HT:PCBM) and a...

Thermodynamics of hydrogen adsorption in MOF-177 at low temperatures: measurements and modelling.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Nanotechnology | Comments

Hydrogen adsorption measurements and modelling for the Zn-based microporous metal-organic framework (MOF) Zn4O(1,3,5-benzenetribenzoate)2, MOF-177, were performed over the 50-77 K and 0-40 bar ranges. The maximum excess adsorption measured under these conditions varies over...

Mechanisms of synergistic skin penetration by sonophoresis and iontophoresis.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Biol Pharm Bull | Comments

The mechanism of skin penetration enhancement by ultrasound under sonophoresis (US) or by an electrical field under iontophoresis (IP) was investigated using hairless mouse skin in vitro. The seven model chemicals with different molecular weights (122-1485) were dissolved in a...

Acoustic cavitation as an enhancing mechanism of low-frequency sonophoresis for transdermal drug delivery.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Biol Pharm Bull | Comments

We investigated the role of acoustic cavitation on sonophoretic skin permeation of calcein, a model permeant, across excised hairless rat skin. Three different frequencies (41, 158, 445 kHz) and various intensities (60 to 300 mW/cm(2)) of ultrasound were applied. Cavitation...

Ribonucleoprotein dynamics connects mRNA networks with drug mechanisms

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | Comments

Beyond transcription, gene expression is potently controlled through processes that affect pre-mRNA splicing and maturation, as well as mRNA transport, turnover, storage, and translation. These events are tightly regulated by two main classes of trans-binding factors,...
