Polymer Technology Systems, Inc. CardioChek Self-Test System (http://rbi.ims.ca/4911-548).This accurate, palm-sized self-blood test system allows users to determine their cholesterol levels (Total, HDL, and LDL) as well as measure glucose, ketones, and triglycerides in about a minute. The unit requires accurate temperature measurements to provide the correct results. The CardioChek uses the aSM121 SiMistor, a CMOS silicon thermistor, with integrated linear calibration from Andigilog that measures temperature to ±1C. The aSM121 measures the ambient temperature and allows the CardioChek to calibrate itself prior to determining the various levels in the sample.

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
