Patient samples: safe packaging, safe shipping

Dear Sir or Madam,

Have you ever thought about how patient samples are sent from the physician to the laboratory? As medical samples are a highly sensitive cargo, shipping packaging in particular must be very safe. Its purpose is not only to protect the samples from damage, but also to protect people from a possible infection. In our current video video, we asked Versapak what such packaging looks like.

Have a warm week,

Drug or duplicate?

Imagine holding two different medications in your hands, one being the original, the other one being a counterfeit. Both appear exactly the same. Is there any way for you to distinguish them? The answer is: yes. Our quantum cascade laser (QCL) has the ability to identify substances in a split second.

Berkeley engineers build smallest wireless nerve stimulator

In 2016, University of California, Berkeley, engineers demonstrated the first implanted, ultrasonic neural dust sensors, bringing closer the day when a Fitbit-like device could monitor internal nerves, muscles or organs in real time. Now, Berkeley engineers have taken neural dust a step forward by building the smallest volume, most efficient wireless nerve stimulator to date.
