Free  Syringes & Vials Testing Tips Whitepaper Free Syringes & Vials Testing Tips Whitepaper

The humble syringe is delivering what is arguably the world's most valuable substance, the COVID-19 vaccine. Mecmesin’s white paper gives useful advice on force and torque testing methods used to assess the quality and performance of syringes – from individual components through to the assembled device. It also covers the testing of the sterile medical packaging in which syringes are delivered and testing of the vial from which a syringe must extract and deliver the medication.

A study recently published on the medRxiv* preprint server observed the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in five schools (96 classrooms) in Davis, California (USA), by collecting weekly surface-swab samples from classroom floors and/or portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) units.
 
 Using PET scans to predict recurrence in Hodgkin lymphoma
 
Using PET scans to predict recurrence in Hodgkin lymphomaOne of the primary tools that oncologists use to stage cancers is the PET (positron emission tomography) scan, an imaging test that uses a small amount of radioactive sugar to detect metabolically active areas within the body.

IUDs appear to have systemic effects on the body, breast MRI study showsIntrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) appear to have systemic effects on the body like those of hormone replacement therapy, according to a breast MRI study being presented next week at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.
 
 
 Singapore researchers develop ultra-sensitive 2D material sensor to detect breast cancer cells
 
Singapore researchers develop ultra-sensitive 2D material sensor to detect breast cancer cellsCells can produce unique electrical signals. These signals can be linked to various cancers, such as the breast, lung, liver, brain, pancreas and prostate cancers, meaning that they can be used as indicators for early cancer diagnosis.
