TIRF (total internal reflectance fluorescence) is a promising method for visualizing thin layers of samples in fluorescence microscopy.
Water purification systems are essential components in any laboratory. In order to ensure the integrity of these systems, regularly scheduled validation studies are performed.
Advances in technologies em-ployed by R&D organizations have led to increasing amounts of data (e.g., high throughput screening experiments) and a focus on leveraging past research studies.
Multi-chamber Mini-environments often use multiplexed nitrogen purging to maintain multiple sub-ambient humidity levels.

Multi-function devices and modular instruments are used in a variety of data acquisition (DAQ) systems. In laboratories, in validation, and on manufacturing plant floors, these devices act as general-purpose measurement tools that are well suited for measuring signals.
Orbital welding is a viable and economical method for connecting stainless steel tubing, especially in applications in which maximum leak integrity, high performance, vibration resistance, or ultra cleanliness is paramount.
Embattled by the IC downturn and an extremely competitive market space, the photomask industry gravitates towards smaller feature sizes, increased alliances, and some old-fashioned business remodeling for a much-needed reprieve.
Low-resolution retinal implants aimed at helping the blind gain mobility are getting ready to appear on the market.
Globalization may be the key that shifts the implementation of commercial laboratory information management systems into high gear with their less expensive, easier-to-use capabilities.
Renovations at the Dreyfus Chemistry Laboratories building at MITtransform the dark, small, outdated, and disconnected labs into light-filled, large, state-of-the-art research areas.
San Mateo County Sheriff's Forensic Laboratory and Coroner's Office replaces the traditional introverted forensic lab conventions with open, inviting, friendly features.
Our annual awards competition provides some interesting tips on what makes a great laboratory and what limits them from being all they can be.
LEDs may be the first real technological revolution in lighting in one hundred years, but can they provide enough optical power to be truly practical? The OSRAM 6-lead MULTILED (left) is a single package with individually addressable red, green, and blue LEDs.
The FDA wanted the kind of environment that would foster idea sharing, bringing together administrative functions, field operations, and laboratory research into a visually stimulating settingall on a government budget.
