Ocean Optics' (www.oceanoptics.com) new Lab-on-Valve sequential-injection analyzer puts a computer controlled six-position selector valve, precision syringe pump, and spectrophotometric flow cell in a 12.7- x 15.3- x 15.3-cm package for automated wet-chemistry applications. With processing taking place within the valve manifold, there is no need for additional tubing and connectors, so microvolumes of samples don't travel long distances with increased potential for contamination or degradation. Applications include biological processing medical immunoassays, water quality analysis, and dilution monitoring.
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
