DNA Testing Using Biodetect- BioDetect Technology:Integrated
Nano-Technologies LLC has developed promising technology that is now entering a
full-scale testing phase. The first BioDetect analyzer is a self-contained unit
available for attachment to an external PC or with embedded processing
electronics. This engineered prototype is undergoing extensive testing by the
company and selected third-party test sites. And, according to the company, a
smaller, lighter production device will begin shipping in early
The Heat is On-
–tougher than cooking porridge –was to design a temperature control
(TC)instrument that could be used during arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic
surgery often means scraping away that which doesn’t belong inside knees,
shoulders, and other joints. But sometimes, instead of a scalpel, surgeons use
heat. In what ’s called thermal modification surgery, performed with the aid of
an arthroscope, a TC instrument is applied to shrink a ligament and restore
normal operation to a joint.
Machine Tests Toxic
Potential of Cigarettes and Their Additives-
There are many
questions that surround the tobacco smoke or health controversy. For example:
How can a safer cigarette be engineered? What additives are safe to use in
cigarettes? How much of an additive is acceptable? How does a smoker avoid harm
when he or she chooses to smoke? What information should they look for? Since
tobacco smoke is harmful anyway, what makes it bad for some people but not so
bad for others? Although tobacco smoke’s hazards may not be of interest to
everyone, especially those who do not smoke, the way to engineer the toxicity
analysis of cigarette smoke and the contribution of tobacco additives within
cigarettes to their health risk are real concerns, not to mention big business.
The importance of the answers to these questions to the public’s health cannot
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
