Increases throughput for Dioxin analysis while ensuring compliance with existing regulations, including EPA1613

Cherwell provides practical microbiological solutions at PHSS 2013

Cherwell Laboratories will be offering expert knowledge and demonstrating their comprehensive range of specialist environmental monitoring and process validation products at the forthcoming PHSS Annual Members Conference 2013, Microbial Aspects of Cleanroom Manufacture.

Informatics solution for water and environmental testing laboratories

Ensures companies have defensible data to comply with the US Safe Drinking Water Act

Assay for detecting environmental Listeria spp

Food microbiology assay detects Listeria species in environmental samples in just eight hours

Environmental sampling: evaluating future

The importance of environmental monitoring and evaluation with food production environments

Microplate reader offers environmental control for cell-based applications

Ensures greater biological relevance for a wide range of studies, by allowing assays to be performed under hypoxic or physiological conditions

Environmental scandal in Chile

Until recently, the disastrous scale of the threat posed by salmon farms to the fauna and National Park of the Aysen region of southern Chile was entirely unknown. The unexpected discovery was made by researchers studying acoustic communication among the native whales in the region.

Greater environmental protection from monitoring lower levels of contaminants

Next generation calibration gas mixtures are essential to enable new air quality analysis technologies. Stephen Harrison reports.

Crops impact environmental quality

Crop residues, perennial warm season grasses, and short-rotation woody crops are potential biomass sources for cellulosic ethanol production.

Reactivity of environmental contaminants

Scientists can now pinpoint, at the millisecond level, what happens as harmful environmental contaminants such as arsenic begin to react with soil and water under various conditions.

Environmental toxins and multiple myeloma

A recent study provides a possible genetic link between environmental toxins and bone disease in multiple myeloma.

Environmental effects of carbon nanoparticles

A new study raises the possibility that flies and other insects that encounter nanomaterial 'hot spots,' or spills, near manufacturing facilities in the future could pick up and transport nanoparticles on their bodies.

Possible environmental causes for Alzheimer's, diabetes

Researchers have found a substantial link between increased levels of nitrates in our environment and food with increased deaths from diseases, including Alzheimer's, diabetes mellitus and Parkinson's.

Wine in cans have environmental benefits

Two separate studies commissioned by Rexam have demonstrated that wine in cans is not only an environmentally friendly and sustainable pack format, but also offers beneficial cost savings for both suppliers and retailers.

Integrating building management and environmental monitoring

The control and monitoring of both storage and production environments is becoming increasingly important for the pharmaceutical industry.

Variable speed pumps help cut environmental impact of sweet plant

A new, centralised, hot water circulation system has been installed at the largest Mars confectionery plant for Western Europe. The operating speeds of system's pumps are controlled by pump-mounted, frequency control units, which have provided great benefits in the form of flexibility of use and significant energy savings. By Steve Minett and Keld Fenwick.

Environmental impact: the challenge for base station roll-out

Mobile operators carry signals to a handset through the airwaves via a network of base station sites, full of antennas and equipment. Next-generation mobile networks will demand far more such base stations, bringing with them a host of health, safety and environmental concerns ­ both real and spurious, as Jim Costello reports.

Concentrating environmental samples

For environmental laboratories it is of great benefit to concentrate samples prior to analysis to help accurately determine levels of analyte in a given sample.
