This paper focuses specifically on how thermal expansion affects repeatability. While accuracy is also affected by temperature change, in most applications, it is less of a concern. An accuracy reduction of several micrometers will usually be overshadowed by other sources of error within the state. For the most precise position applications, the effect of thermal expansion on accuracy will indeed require close scrutiny.
This white paper examines the computing and storage needs of pharmaceutical research, disease research and precision medicine environments and matches them to the technologies modernizing their infrastructures. Discover: • 6 changes having the greatest impact on research & development IT infrastructures • Importance of a high-performance hybrid cloud file system • The use cases possible with a modern infrastructure supporting research environments.
Many organizations already take advantage of the storage cloud for backup and archive data. But several trickier challenges, specifically the problems of client-to-storage latency, data migration, and incompatible communication protocols, prevent many would-be users from moving ahead with cloud strategies for primary applications. This paper describes how Hybrid Cloud NAS infrastructure overcomes these and enables scientific researchers to fully realize the 4-C opportunities of the cloud.
This app note outlines an innovative method to statistically quantify and localize carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in cells. This state-of-the-art method can be adapted to a large range of experiments and more specifically could overcome the difficulties of discriminating graphene-based nanomaterials from carbon-rich cell structures.
New advances in multispectral imaging have combined the capabilities of microscopy and flow cytometry into a single platform that is used for quantitative image-based cellular assays in large and heterogeneous cell populations. These capabilities can be utilized to measure both BRDU staining and nuclear fragmentation in a TUNEL assay. These new advances will also allow for enhanced utility of TUNEL assays as well as the identification of apoptotic cells by their unique nuclear morphologies.
Sample preparation is a key part of the analytical process, contributing to reproducibility and accuracy in the final results. The evaporation/concentration step can be achieved with various technologies, including heat, vacuum and blow-down. This webinar will examine the parameters that go into each of these choices and describe criteria to consider in matching the sample to the technique.
With the requirement to increase testing of agricultural and food products for the presence of aflatoxins, reliable and convenient testing methods that utilize readily available standard laboratory tools are in demand. For the general laboratory, newer technologies for aflatoxin analysis may be financially unattainable. This app note focuses on the innovative method developed to accurately test aflatoxins using general equipment.
Top performing companies are establishing manufacturing supply chain safeguards by partnering with rapid response contract manufacturers in order to mitigate the risk associated with production or shipment delays, and unforeseen swings in demand during multiple stages of the products life cycle. This paper examines 4 areas of supply chain safeguards: • Quoting and design for manufacturability (DFM) analysis • Prototyping • Pilot production and short runs • Bridging to high-volume production
Maintaining brand reputation and product quality has led to increased focus on qualifying raw materials and ingredients used in food production. In addition to traditional quality parameters, detection of adulterants plays a critical role in ensuring food safety and quality. FT-NIR spectrometers have become valuable tools for screening almost any raw material for adulterants in an easy and non-destructive way.
Many countries have enacted increasingly stringent food and safety legislations including those that regulate contaminants such as lead, copper, arsenic, tin and zinc. The primary methods, ICP-OES and AAS, for determining contaminant concentrations in food require testing within a laboratory. Portable high –resolution ED-XRF spectrometers bring testing directly to the line, eliminating the time consuming lab-based methodologies.
Producers of steel or aluminum sheets often coat their products with metals to protect them from rust and corrosion or add strength. Consistency of coating thickness – commonly referred to as “coat weight” – is vital to successful performance and requires advanced analytical techniques.
In this Application note, we highlight the development of an LC method that optimized the Chromatographic resolution for the released N-glycans that are commonly found in mAbs, including the high mannos N-glycan structures that are known to negatively affect circulation half-life as well as indicate aberrant cell culture conditions
This white paper explores ways to maximize multi-material and color possibilities utilizing 3D printers with the capability to print ready to use models, like the Connex3 Objet500. 3D printing with the ability to use multiple materials and a variety of color choices results in enhanced functionality and product realism that brings parts to life. This White Paper will Cover: Flexible and Ridged Pallets Workflows Color Ranges Workflows Digital Models
Today, most gas chromatographs (GC) are connected to one or more cylinders of high purity carrier gas. To achieve better results of their analysis at lower and lower concentration levels, instrument operators opt for ultra high purity gas of 99.999% or better. But just buying the best gas does not solve the problem; you must be able to transfer the gas from the cylinder to the instrument without contaminating the gas. The design of the transfer system is critical.
