Every time you’ve seen a plane take off or land at a hub airport, you’ve seen the world growing more connected. Researchers have designed a new model that determines the degree to which regions around the world are connected via air transportation.
Laboratory Equipment’s scientist of the week is Emmanuel Asante from University College London. He and a team, inspired by brain-eating cannibals from Papua New Guinea who survived a scourge of brain disease, used genetically engineered mice to study resistance to mad cow disease.
Like other nations, the U.S. has engaged in human medical experimentation, some of which clearly violated the Hippocratic Oath. But, as years go by and more documents become available, the scope of the projects in the 20th Century only continues to grow. The latest revelation is a race-based series of experiments using mustard gas on American soldiers during World War II.
In conjunction with Innovative Physical Organic Solutions (IPOS), Asynt has created a Baffled Controlled Lab Reactor system that offers fast mixing/dispersion.
Tovatech’s 400-W MS-70 high-resolution halogen moisture analyzer is ideal for plastic resin quality control due to its 0.0001 g (0.001% moisture) resolution.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech’s Sartoclear Dynamics is a new a clarification system featuring single-use technology for harvesting mammalian cell cultures with high cell densities.
Pfeiffer Vacuum has added IKR and PKR vacuum gauges to its family of ActiveLine total pressure measurement devices.
A new vertical and mobile mounting tower gives the Hiden HPR-30 low-pressure process gas analyzer stable support for mounting directly to small and light-loading process chamber ports at heights up to 6 ft.
Glass Solutions’ range of jacketed reactor systems combines value with reliable performance for process development, reaction optimization or production applications.
The Series 3 HT evaporator range from Genevac incorporates a high-performance vacuum pump, the latest touchscreen technology and a sleek ergonomic design to make optimizing evaporation processes effortless.
Daily weather patterns have changed in recent decades, making eastern North America, Europe and western Asia more prone to nastier summer heat waves that go beyond global warming, a new study has found.
Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard is teaming up with Google Genomics to explore how to break down major technical barriers that increasingly hinder biomedical research by addressing the need for computing infrastructure to store and process enormous datasets, and by creating tools to analyze such data and unravel long-standing mysteries about human health.
The tooth plate of just some millimeters in size had been in a box for more than 40 years, without being recognized after the discovery and preparation of the fish it belonged to. Paleontologists studied the fossil using high energy X-rays, revealing the structure and development of teeth and bones. Their results suggest that teeth originated deeper in the tree of life than we thought.
From gummy bears to silky mousses, gelatin is essential for making some of our favorite sweets. Now, scientists are exploring another use for the common food ingredient: spinning it into yarn so it can be made into clothing.
In a sweeping victory for Dutch environmental activists that could have global repercussions, a court ordered the government Wednesday to cut the country's greenhouse gas emissions by at least 25 percent by 2020. The ruling by The Hague District Court could lay the foundations for similar cases around the world.
