Prototyping Challenges with Micro Moulding
A lot has changed in the last 20 years. Just two short decades ago, the top speed of a personal computer processor was 386MHz, and hard drive space and RAM memory were still measured in megabytes.
Monomaterial Packaging Solution to Global Plastic Crisis
In February 2108, a young sperm whale washed up on a beach in southeastern Spain. When scientists carried out a necropsy, they discovered the huge mammal had succumbed to a fatal infection caused by more than 30 kilos of plastics in its stomach and intestines.
Alkaline Soak for Tough Biologic Residues
Alkaline hydrolysis is a chemical reaction that takes place when tough organic residues are exposed to an alkaline solution. Alkaline hydrolysis breaks these residues into smaller more water-soluble and more easily emulsified molecules.
Applications in Medical Device Manufacturing
The use of aqueous cleaning in medical device manufacturing can provide numerous benefits in terms of efficacy, minimal surface contact and reduced potential and easier cleaning validation.
Gimmick to game-changer: a personal experience with hydrocolloids
Hydrocolloids are occlusive, waterproof dressings that are generally indicated for superficial wounds with low amounts of drainage.
Researchers create less-invasive biosensor for breast cancer diagnosis
A research team funded by the US National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) has devised a new biosensor to diagnose breast cancer less invasively compared to the existing needle biopsy approach.
Accumold: World Leaders in Micro-Mold Manufacturing Solutions
Accumold was founded in 1985. Our focus was to mold very small parts other companies could not produce. The same mission continues to drive us today.
CRISPR babies: an ethical framework is urgently needed
He Jiankui, a scientist and professor of biology at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, has proclaimed the births of Nana and Lulu, the world’s first gene-edited babies. While this claim remains unverified by a third party, He posted a video to YouTube claiming that the genetic alterations were verified and that Nana and Lulu were healthy.
US researchers study use of graphene to detect ALS
University of Illinois researchers have conducted a study to evaluate the potential use of graphene in identifying amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a neurodegenerative disease.
