SedEvent is an event-driven, automatic grab sampling system that provides a simple and practical method of accurately determining suspended sediment and nutrient loads. While suspended sediment concentration (SSC) cannot be directly measured accurately or reliably, turbidity has been shown to be an excellent surrogate for SSC. Turbidity is caused by suspended particulate matter such as clay, silt, algae, organic and inorganic chemicals and acids like fertilizers, and microscopic organisms like harmful bacteria. These contents give water its cloudy or turbid appearance, and turbidity in natural waters is recognized as an important indicator of natural health. Measuring suspended sediment concentrations used to be labor-intensive, costly, inaccurate and impractical. SedEvent not only makes it possible and practical, it makes it simple.

Digital Pathology is an image-based information environment enabled by virtual microscopy. This involves imaging glass slides and saving and distributing their digital images for analysis, archiving and storage. The virtual microscopy slides are: •Scanned — using a microscope based scanning device that takes images of the whole slide via large scanning or stitching of smaller scans. This involves a motorized stage to scan the whole slide. Light source stability is important for scanning in order to prevent illumination variation across the whole scan. The X-Cite® exacte is commonly used in slide scanning systems. •Viewed — on a computer via viewing software •Managed — some of the slides have a barcode that is also scanned to enable archiving with patient information •Analysed — using image analysis tools and software, structures maybe automatically identified and quantified •Shared — digital pathology files may be shared over a network to gather additional expert opinion Digital pathology technology in no way replaces the expert eye and diagnosing power of a pathologist and a doctor. The only thing it saves is time to image the samples and also provides an efficient and organized way to archive the virtual microscopy slides for future consultations, record-keeping and disease comparison.
