When doctors or researchers are analyzing diseases, like flu, speed is critical. Veredus Labs. Pte Ltd. has created a molecular diagnostic test that can detect infection within two hours, providing infection information that traditionally would take days to determine. The portable lab-on-chip application just completed evaluation trials at the National University Hospital of Singapore. STMicroelectronics provides the disposable system-on-chip device, which includes processors and the peripherals needed to accurately process and analyze minute patient samples of human blood, serum or respiratory swabs. Since chips are tossed after each use, the risk of cross-contamination is dramatically reduced.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
