Surface-imprinted hybrid materials for the selective detection of viruses
Thanks to technological advances in polymer chemistry and nanotechnology, it is now possible to synthetically produce nanomaterials with a wide range of properties and functionalities. This has paved the way for producing bio-inspired structures and systems which, for example, possess binding ...
Metrological traceability: central concept of metrology and requirement of accreditation standards worldwide
Metrological traceability is necessary for consistent, comparable and valid measurement values. As a fundamental concept of modern-day metrology, it allows measurement results to be internationally recognized and is required by norms and accreditation standards all over the world. The ...
Requirements for smart laboratory instruments and interconnected systems in the modular lab of the future
Laboratories tend to be central hubs for chemical, biotechnological, pharmaceutical or foodstuff production. They play a key role in research and development, chemical analysis, quality assurance, maintenance and process control.
Chryso-CT adds contrast to surfaces in X-ray computed tomography
In recent years, microcomputed tomography (μCT) has become a standard method in many medical, scientific and industrial fields. This non-invasive technique enables three-dimensional imaging of a wide variety of structures. However, a new combination of methods now makes it possible to visualize ...
Microwave-assisted freeze-dried raspberry foam snack: Characteristics, drying and storage stability
The food trend towards healthy snacks is continuing. Snacks made from freeze-dried fruit meet consumer expectations of modern and high-quality food. However, freeze drying of whole fruits requires long drying times and substantially reduces sensorial quality, which is unappealing to consumers.
Detection of gluten from wheat, rye and barley in gluten-free products for celiac disease patients
According to legislation, foods bearing a gluten-free label must not contain more than 20 mg of gluten per kilogram, which is crucial to ensure food safety for celiac disease patients. Gluten is detected by immunological, genomic, chromatographic and/or mass spectrometric methods, but the ...
The digital transformation challenges for the laboratory 4.0
It is a fact that much of the time spent on analytical laboratory instrumentation these days goes into system maintenance. Digital transformation could give us more time again for creativity and our actual laboratory work – if we shape it the right way.
Success factors and stumbling blocks involved in running a shop floor board with international and multicultural teams
Lean management has expanded in scope to establish itself in corporate functions beyond production. In present-day laboratory operations, it forms a basis for optimized processes and efficient quality management, providing valuable tools for the digital transition to Laboratory 4.0.
Microstructured, aqueous solutions allow for a photocatalytic activation of alkyl chlorides
Photoredox catalysis has developed into a powerful tool for the synthesis of organic compounds with diverse structures. However, the high stability of carbon-chloride bonds has long hampered the use of cheap and readily available chloroalkanes as substrates.
Identifying odor-active compounds in acrylic paints
Acrylic-based paints are among the most frequently used by artists. Although they can be produced on a water basis and with low levels of volatile substances, they often still possess a strong inherent smell. However, no targeted studies have as yet been conducted to identify odor-active ...
