Clinical labs have used Sherlock to identify bacteria quickly and inexpensively. Now that bioterrorism is considered a serious threat, the analyzer from MIDI Inc. is also being used to detect biowarfare agents. To shorten the time needed to determine which agents are being used, Sherlock was recently upgraded with 32-bit hardware. The Agilent 6850 GC gas chromatograph system is the hardware base, making it possible to do tests quickly for under $3 per sample.

The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
