The ECE Series UV Light-Curing Flood-Lamp Systems, recently introduced by Dymax, are designed to optimize safety and convenience for process-controlled cures. These powerful UV lamps ensure fully cured products and fast cure times resulting in increased manufacturing yields.
Bringing "out of sight" precision to complex 3D part measurement on machine tools, the Renishaw RMP600 touch probe combines two exclusive Renishaw technologies — highest accuracy strain-gage sensing and frequency-hopping spread-spectrum radio transmission.
Machining center utilization improves significantly using the new Kurt PinLock system. It enables machining of multiple parts per load while reducing setup time. The PinLock is a pre-engineered system for precisely locating, attaching and removing fixtures, subplates and vises on a single or a series of machining centers.
The primary care practitioner is well poised to be the central point-of-care, aiding a more holistic approach to the patient. However, the patient demand curve will quickly outstrip the supply of practitioners in even the best treatment models. An enhanced approach is necessary, one that enables patient self-management combined with efficiency tools for HCPs.
A University of North Texas professor has filed a patent on a new laser technology he and his research associate developed for cutting and shaping bone that causes minimal damage to the surrounding tissue and bones, could speed up surgery and recovery times, and even lessen the amount of blood lost during operations.
Axeda Corporation, the leading provider of cloud-based service and software for managing connected products and delivering machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, today announced that Varian Medical Systems, a leading manufacturer of medical devices and software for treating cancer and other...
SAN DIEGO, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GenomeDx Biosciences today announced that data presented by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine researchers at the 2013 Annual Meeting for the American Urological Association demonstrated that Decipher™, a transformative genomic test...
A new "solder" for laser welding of tissue during surgical operations has the potential to produce stronger seals and expand use of this alternative to conventional sutures and stapling in intestinal surgery, scientists are reporting. Their study, which involves use of a gold-based solder, or sealing material, appears in the journal ACS Nano.
Wireless healthcare is upon us. Each day, it seems more devices and technology are becoming untethered or new capabilities are being added to wireless devices. No longer are the applications of wireless devices limited to patient monitoring, but rather an array of therapies are now available for treating patients at home or even on the go.
A Wayne State University researcher has successfully tested a technique that can lead to more effective use of nanoparticles as a drug delivery system. Joshua Reineke, Ph.D., assistant professor of pharmaceutical sciences in the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, examined how a biodegradable polymer particle called polylactic-co-glycolic acid breaks down in live tissue.
Researchers from UNSW have cautioned that more work is needed to understand how micro-organisms respond to the disinfecting properties of silver nano-particles, increasingly used in consumer goods, and for medical and environmental applications.

NEW YORK, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Exosome Diagnostics, a leading developer of biofluid-based molecular diagnostic products for use in personalized medicine research and clinical diagnostics, today announced the presentation of data at the American Urological Association Annual...
Some chest tumors may invade one of the great vessels of the body, the aorta. Surgical removal of these tumors is very challenging and necessitates the support of a heart-lung machine. Therefore, there is an increased risk of complication and death. In a small series of patients, placing a stent within the aorta facilitated the subsequent removal of tumor and eliminated the need for heart-lung bypass.
On May 8th, JoVE published research that demonstrates how a biosensor can detect antibiotic resistance in bacteria. This new technology is a preliminary step in identifying and fighting superbugs, a major public health concern that has led to more deaths than AIDS in the United States in recent years.
Swedish and Spanish engineers have created a system of sensors that detects fruit odours more effectively than the human sense of smell. For now, the device can distinguish between the odorous compounds emitted by pears and apples. The electronic nose has 32 sensors to identify smells.
