High brightness deuterium light source module

Hamamatsu Photonics introduce their first high brightness deuterium (H2D2) light source, featuring a deuterium lamp that emits UV light at intensity six times higher than our conventional L2D2 range of lamps

Open source innovation increasingly being used in drug discovery

New discoveries have led to the need for new ways to tap the vast amounts of information, so as to optimise its potential use

Possible source of beta cell destruction that leads to diabetes

Researachers have been studying the role of the enzyme 12-Lipoxygenase (12-LO) in the development of Type 1 diabetes.

The source of the Earth's mineral riches

According to a new study by geologists at the University of Toronto and the University of Maryland, the wealth of some minerals that lie in the rock beneath the Earth's surface may be extraterrestrial in origin.

Wildlife as a source for livestock infections

A bacterium possibly linked to Crohn's disease could be lurking in wild animals. Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis can be transmitted between wildlife and domestic ruminants, supporting the theory of wildlife reservoirs of infection.

New clean energy source

Researchers at Brigham Young University have developed a fuel cell - basically a battery with a gas tank - that harvests electricity from glucose and other sugars known as carbohydrates.

Marine microbe is source of rare nutrient

A new study of microscopic marine microbes, called phytoplankton, has solved a ten-year-old mystery about the source of an essential nutrient in the ocean.

Open Source DNA

After a published paper found serious security holes in the way DNA data is made publicly available, health institutes in the United States and across the world removed all genetic data from public access.

Supercritical Chia seed oil could become leading source of omega-3 linolenic acid

Known for its high quality supercritical extracts, Flavex has now launched a supercritical Chia Seed extract.

Kiwi seed oil ­ a rich source of omega-3-fatty acids

Kiwi Seed oil is an innovative product gained from the seeds of New Zealand grown Kiwi-fruits by supercritical extraction. The oil has 65percent alpha-linolenic acid and about 15 per cent percent gama-linoleic acid which is an suitable compliment to our nutritional intake.

Laser excitation source

Following on from the success of the TTP LabTech 488nm Acumen Explorer, the company has now launched a new model with a single violet (405nm) laser excitation source.

single source tray packaging line

Ishida Europe complete single-source tray packing line comprises tray denesting, multihead weighing, tray filling and sealing, weigh-price-labelling and pick-and-place casepacking.

Omega-3 fatty acids are preferred source of EPA and DHA in humans

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients, which have to be provided with the diet. Medium chain omega-3 fatty acids from seeds are converted to the long-chain fatty acids, however, based on new data from clinical studies the conversion rate is low indicating that marine omega-3 fatty acids are the preferred fatty acids for prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Morten Bryhn reports.

Open source comes to high speed Internet chips

Open source ideas are moving from operating systems such as Linux to the chips being used for the latest DSL equipment. Nick Flaherty reports.

A new source of spectrophotometric primary reference standards

NIST has produced Standard Reference Materials for calibrating the wavelength scale and verifying the absorbance accuracy of UV/Visible spectrophotometers for several decades. Recently, the NIST production capacity has become insufficient to meet demand and a programme has been developed to leverage NIST measurement capability through the private sector. By Lesley DeLong.

ecoVis krypton light source for VIS-NIR applications

The ecoVis is a compact, low-voltage light source (400-2500 nm) from Ocean Optics with built-in cuvette holder that’s ideal for basic lab measurements in teaching labs and other research environments.
