An experimental nanoparticle therapy that combines low-density lipoproteins and fish oil preferentially kills primary liver cancer cells without harming healthy cells. This approach offers a potentially new and safe way of treating liver cancer, and possibly other cancers.
Controlled Environments spoke to Scott Alexander, an Advanced Certification Technician with AGAPE Instruments Service, about why fume hoods are needed in cleanrooms.
The MGS-1X480.200-2X75K-2X208.200 power distribution system from Larson Electronics is designed to provide operators with one 200 amp male pin and sleeve plug at 480 volts and two 200 amp 208Y female pin and sleeve connectors. On the primary side, this customized distribution panel has a 480 volt Delta line-in Russell Stoll male pin and sleeve connector which provides power to the two 75KVA transformers.
With economists recently predicting a growing U.S. economy, this could be the year employers can afford to give pay increases. Will that be enough to keep your best sales people? Is keeping expensive employees the right decision for every business? Is there a better way?
In case you missed it (ICYMI), here are some of the stories that made headlines in the world of cleanrooms and nanotechnology in the past week.
The 18th and final primary mirror segment has been installed on what will be the biggest and most powerful space telescope ever launched. The final mirror installation last week in a Class 10,000 cleanroom at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. marks an important milestone in the assembly of the agency’s James Webb Space Telescope.
Classical materials such as ceramics, metals, and polymers have their typical mechanical properties. They are hard, soft, strong, flexible, or stiff. Research scientists have now synthesized a material that unites several different properties, and could thereby open the way to new applications in medical engineering and manufacturing.
The material at the heart of the lithium ion batteries that power electric vehicles, laptop computers, and smartphones has been shown to impair a key soil bacterium. The study is an early signal that the growing use of the new nanoscale materials used in the rechargeable batteries that power portable electronics and electric and hybrid vehicles may have untold environmental consequences.
The research is based on the successful quantification of singlet oxygen produced during photodynamic therapy for cancer. Singlet oxygen molecules (a highly reactive form of oxygen) are able to kill or inhibit growth of cancer cells in the body due to their toxicity.
The WALTP-CU12-4X150W-LED-100 quadpod light tower from Larson Electronics produces 59,610 lumens of light from four 150 watt LED light heads.
Pollens, the bane of allergy sufferers, could represent a boon for battery makers: Recent research has suggested their potential use as anodes in lithium-ion batteries.
Iron-studded BNNTs are pushing the boundaries of electronics hardware
Graphene has been touted as the strongest material known to exist, 200 times stronger than steel, lighter than paper, and with extraordinary mechanical and electrical properties. But can it live up to its promise?
DNA scaffolds cage and coax nanoparticles into position to form crystalline arrangements that mimic the atomic structure of diamond.
Sensirion offers its SDP3x digital differential pressure sensor, which measures just 5mm x 8mm x 5mm and opens up countless new integration and application possibilities, including for the measurement of air flows in medical technology or the consumer goods industry.
