Transpiration is an issue that has gone relatively unnoticed when in the market for reliable measurements. Transpiration is the passage of vapor from within a container to the outside. It is a systematic error that increases the concentration of a solution as time passes, compromising the use of the solution as a testing standard.

Volatile chemicals and hazardous materials present substantial challenges in the modern laboratory workspace. The gases that emanate from these substances can be at best an irritation, at worst fatally dangerous when inhaled, and in more and more cases, highly flammable. A recent revision to the fire code regarding fume hoods helps better protect lab personnel.
Researchers have created a vaccine against nicotine to help smokers overcome their addiction to tobacco. The work aims to make the body’s immune system react to nicotine like a foreign invader, just like it would a viral or bacterial infection. But, because of the different forms of nicotine, this is difficult. Jonathan Lockner, the first author of a paper about the new vaccine, spoke to LabOutlook about the work.
Digital health investments are booming, according to Rock Health, a venture capital (VC) firm that monitors investments in this sector. Shortcomings in the fast-evolving digital health care arena are becoming obvious, so Harvard Univ. is challenging those notions with technology.
In the last three years, the NSF has taught more than 700 teams of scientists how to commercialize their technology using serial entrepreneur Steve Blank’s “Lean Startup” method. Sharing a common interest to promote societal benefits, NSF teamed with the NIH to pioneer the same program to support biomedical innovation and translation.
More than half of the U.S’s economic growth in the past 50 years has come from science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professions, creating more entrepreneurs than any other discipline in that time span. S2S is an organization that brings together professional corporations, resources, students and teachers to ensure a healthy scientific future for the world.
