Our editors also take a look at nanotechnology trends, touchscreen instrument controls, and enhancements in hyperspectral imaging. This issue also features products introduced at Pittcon 2013.
Make new contacts, build your network. The Summit provides an ideal setting for networking, drawing people from over 40 countries in cross-disciplinary pursuits. Primary researchers to philanthropists and policy makers will be there. Forge Relationship. In addition to 65 hours of speaker presentations and ongoing exhibitions, the Summit provides a variety of small group events and social opportunities for fostering one-on-one interactions.
This month's issue of R&D Magazine focuses on the optimal laboratory fit-out and proper laboratory equipment. New technologies and changing attitudes about effective, efficient research impact the way laboratories are equipped. Our editors also take a look into the fume hood industry, laboratory automation systems, and the state of systems biology. This issue also features products that will be featured at Pittcon 2013.
The Workshop is an opportunity for all those engaged in low-temperature work to exchange research results and knowledge, to inform the world about accomplishments and breakthroughs, and to network and share information with peers from around the world.
In this month's issue of R&D Magazine we announce and profile the winners of our annual Scientist of the Year and Innovator of the Year Awards. We also feature our research executive roundtable which shows how changes in the R&D environment are driving research managers to look at different ways to support and grow their organizations.
The 2013 R&D Magazine/Battelle Global R&D Funding Forecast is a comprehensive analysis of the state of industrial research worldwide.
In this month's issue of R&D Magazine the editors explore the instrumentation and business strategies that help bring nanotechnology to the marketplace. Other features on dynamic light scattering, reverse engineering, click chemistry, product development, rapid prototyping, and simulation software are also included.
This month's issue celebrates the 2012 R&D 100 Award winners.
HEPA filter loading can compromise a biological safety cabinet's ability to maintain proper airflow. This white paper, by Labconco Corp., will review the current technologies used by various biosafety cabinet manufacturers to monitor and maintain proper airflows as HEPA filters load.
In this month's issue of R&D Magazine the editors explore how better parts build better products. Suppliers for original equipment manufacturers rely on a variety of innovative strategies; cost models can improve design and manufacturability; test methods and tools facilitate particle sizing, composite design, and viscosity analysis.
Characterization of the chemical composition of fibers is of high importance in both forensic science and the textile industry. As demonstrated by Bruker Optics in a recent white paper, the Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) imaging capabilities of the LUMOS microscope, which require minimal sample preparation, are suitable for this type of analysis.
Bruker’s LUMOS microscope is equipped with a motorized attenuated total reflectance (ATR) germanium objective that is highly suitable for analysis of dark samples without the need for preparation. In this white paper from Bruker Optics, the analysis of dark streaks on a polycarbonate sample is simplified through the use of automation procedures.
As electronic devices get smaller, they are becoming more vulnerable to contamination through the presence of impurities. Using a Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) microscope such as Bruker Optics’ LUMOS, contaminations in the low micrometer range can be identified. In this white paper, Bruker demonstrates how FT-IR can be used to determine surface contamination on the soldering contact of a surface mounted device.
This month's issue of R&D Magazine features the profiles of our annual Laboratory of the Year winners. This years winners include the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, Princeton University's Frick Chemistry Laboratory, Kansas Bioscience Authority's Venture Accelerator, and University of California-Riverside's School of Medicine Research Building. Our editors also provide an in-depth overview of modern laboratory design and its ups and downs in a recovering economy, as well as features on technological improvements in fume hood accessories and their impact in recent years, dressing for safety in laboratory settings, and smartphone applications that monitor and control laboratory equipment.
