Inciner8 Provides Medical Waste Solution for PacWaste Project

Inciner8 Provides Medical Waste Solution for PacWaste Project

26 medical incinerators have been sanctioned by PacWaste to the Pacific region’s key health clinics and hospitals; these are the first to be commissioned. Funded by the European Union, the PacWaste is a 7.85 million euro project. The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program (SPREP) is implementing the project in order to improve regional hazardous waste management across the Pacific... Read more.

 
 RDT launches Tempus ALS monitor and defibrillator for smarter, more focused emergency responseRDT launches Tempus ALS monitor and defibrillator for smarter, more focused emergency response
 
Remote Diagnostic Technologies Ltd., an innovator in pre-hospital care, today announced the launch of its Tempus ALS monitor and defibrillator at the Emergency Services Show in Birmingham. Lighter and more focused than existing technologies, the Tempus ALS enables paramedics to carry less and do much more.
 
 
 Analytical Science in Precision MedicineAnalytical Science in Precision Medicine
 
Pittcon is an analytical conference, so naturally my talk will be about analytical chemistry and how analytical chemistry will become increasingly important in delivering healthcare solutions, not only for rich people, but also, hopefully, for poor people across the world.
 
 
 Redox Speciation Analysis of Iron using IC-ICP/MS TechniqueRedox Speciation Analysis of Iron using IC-ICP/MS Technique
 
The environmental behavior of iron, as well as its uptake by plants, its absorption by human and animals and its storage and transport all depend on its oxidation state, making redox speciation analysis of this element very important.

Scientists develop rapid, highly sensitive fingerprint test to detect cocaine usersScientists from the University of Surrey have developed a rapid and highly sensitive fingerprint test that can take just seconds to confirm whether someone has used cocaine.
 
 
 Neurohistology: how whole slide scanning impacts workflow
 
Neurohistology: how whole slide scanning impacts workflowLeveraging the mass production benefit that MultiBrain® technology brings to neurohistology, NSA can accelerate the R&D preclinical and safety assessment processes many fold and perform them less expensively. This results in faster times for a potential drug to move from R&D to clinical trials and sooner for use in people.
 
 
 Analyzing Morphology of Plant Fibers using Scanning Electron Microscopy
 
Analyzing Morphology of Plant Fibers using Scanning Electron MicroscopyScanning electron microscopy (SEM), in the last several years, has made a major impact on different fields of biology research that are either associated with the physiology and anatomy of plants, or with the use of plant fibers in various industrial applications.
 
 
 Ultra Trace Determination of Bromate in Drinking Water by Microbore Column IC and ICP/MS
 
Ultra Trace Determination of Bromate in Drinking Water by Microbore Column IC and ICP/MSThe chemical compound bromate is formed when drinking water is disinfected through ozonation. At mg/L levels, bromate is potentially carcinogenic to mice and rats. Based on recent toxicological studies, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified bromate as a group-2B carcinogen to humans, with concentrations greater than 0.05 g/L associated with kidney tumor risk.
 
 
 Using Resting-State Functional MRI for Fine-Grained Mapping of Mouse Brain Functional Connectivity
 
Using Resting-State Functional MRI for Fine-Grained Mapping of Mouse Brain Functional ConnectivityThe neuroimaging field has been revolutionized by the resting state functional MRI or rs-fMRI technique, (Biswal et al., 1995), highlighting a major shift towards the notion of combined whole brain functional networks in contrast to the process of identifying isolated functional brain regions triggered by some stimulus paradigm.
 
 
 Indirect Ultra Trace Determination of Aminopolycarboxylic Acids in Surface Water using IC-ICP/MS
 
Indirect Ultra Trace Determination of Aminopolycarboxylic Acids in Surface Water using IC-ICP/MSRecently, organic compounds such as biomolecules and pesticides have been analyzed using the IC-ICP/MS method. This method was shown to be suitable for examining molecules of relatively small masses that are present as ions. IC-ICP/MS can also be used to monitor chelating agents, which are often used in industrial processes and have the potential to pollute the environment.
