Product engineers and tooling manufacturers have much to gain from 3D printing: By generating low-cost physical prototypes early in the design process, they can check form, fit and function; gauge customer response; and compare design iterations without commitment. It’s even possible to quickly craft end-use parts, customized for a particular job.

Explore the cleaning efficiency of MICRO-90® , MICRO® GREEN CLEAN and MICRO® A07 on four GE flat sheet membranes in the GE Osmonics SEPA CF II filtration unit.
A cleaning validation method has been developed for MICRO 90 Concentrated Cleaning Solution using a swab recovery technique and quantification with HPLC with charged aerosol detection (CAD) and mass spectrometry (MS) detection.
Based on the membrane foulants, Micro-90®, Micro® A07, or both may be required to clean and return the conditions to their original values. The foulant will help determine which cleaner(s) is needed. If one cleaner is all that is necessary to correct the condition, then that is satisfactory. Sometimes, a pre-soak is useful. In other systems, both an alkaline and acidic cleaner are used for full cleaning.
Designing for energy efficiency when producing materials such as Carbon Fiber at high temperatures is ideal, but what does it mean? This white paper discusses establishing important baseline principles when considering the scope of opportunity involved in commercial production of advanced materials.
Success of process development is often influenced by decisions made early in the evaluation process. These decisions may later preclude certain equipment options that make the difference in quality or efficiencies of the commercial scale product.
A new white paper from Decision Lens teaches how world-class innovation teams create standard frameworks to evaluate and prioritize the strategic investments that deliver the highest returns on investment, streamlining and accelerating the R&D portfolio planning process.
In a new white paper from Carl Zeiss Microscopy, scientists from DME Nanotechnologie GmbH and Zeiss demonstrate the power of the AFM/SEM combination found in the Zeiss Merlin series microscopes for the analysis of helium ion beam exposed nanostructures.
Oxford Gene Technology (OGT), a provider of genetics research and biomarker solutions to advance molecular medicine, has produced a new white paper that is designed to help researchers looking to develop next-generation sequencing strategies. It covers resequencing, methods suitability, data analysis and time and cost considerations.
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.
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.
Modeling and simulation tools can help researchers understand and optimize the design of lithium-ion batteries.
Bruker Optics presents recent white papers on analytical application methods using its line of Fourier transform infrared spectrometers and optical microscopes. Industrial applications include materials analysis, pharmaceutical process control, and environmental health.
Traditionally, content uniformity analysis for tablets has been performed off-line by liquid chromatography. Performed in batches, this approach is time-consuming. A new spectroscopy-based system called TANDEM, as detailed by Bruker Optics in a white paper, combines Bruker’s Matrix Fourier transform near-infrared spectrometer with a Dr. Schleuniger Pharmatron 10X conventional tablet tester to enable rapid, on-line, non-destructive tablet content uniformity characterization along with moisture and excipient analysis.
