  • 3 Reasons for Biopharmaceutical Labs to add Mass Detection to Routine Analyses

    As regulators focus in on the critical quality attributes (CQAs) of biotherapeutics, what can biopharmaceutical labs in late development or QC do to increase confidence in their bioseparations assays – other than to run additional orthogonal assays? Many labs are finding the answer in mass detection, specifically with the ACQUITY ...

  • Detection and measurement of GWGs in semiconductor fab facilities

    Problem Statement Various processes and tools in the modern wafer fab plant produce effluent streams that contain unacceptably high levels of perfluorocarbon GWGs (greenhouse warming gases). These effluent streams are abated by plasma incineration and wet scrubbers and other techniques. It is necessary to measure the destruction removal efficiency (DRE) of the various abatement methods ...

  • Advanced gas detection technology supports arctic greenhouse gas research

    Enormous quantities of greenhouse gases (GHG) exist within Arctic ice and frozen soils, so with the threat of global warming, a clear understanding of the relationship between GHG in the atmosphere and in the ice/soil is vital because melting of permafrost could cause a dangerous climate tipping point. There can be few more challenging environments for monitoring gases, but PhD researcher Martin ...

  • Silicon optocouplers for biosensing

    Here we review on the fabrication and the bioanalytical applications of a monolithic silicon optocoupler that integrates an array of silicon avalanche diodes as light sources, detectors and silicon nitride optical fibres, all intercoupled through a self-alignment technique. The optocoupler is combined with a microfluidic module that allows for simultaneous real-time sensing of multiple analytes. ...

  • Monitoring the performance of moisture purifiers for process gases

    Problem Statement Moisture purifiers are a big aid in keeping moisture levels under control inside a process chamber. They are provided by manufacturers with certain life expectancies, which vary depending on the moisture content of the gas being purified. As a result, it is difficult to determine which gases have a high moisture content and which moisture purifier is becoming ...

  • Continuous monitoring of moisture present inside a process chamber

    Problem Statement Moisture inside a process chamber is a big silent killer during wafer production. When production yield goes down, it is hard to pinpoint the source of the problem. Most of the time wafers need to be sent to labs for analysis, while production is stopped. If the problem is related to a high level of moisture inside the reactor, there are several factors that can cause ...

  • Selecting and Placing Gas Detectors for Maximum Application Protection

    Many industrial processes involve dangerous gases and vapors: flammable, toxic, or both. With the different sensing technologies available, and the wide range of industrial applications that exist, selecting the best sensor and locating them properly for the job at hand can be a challenge. To ensure a high level of safety, know the latest sensing technologies, which technology is best for the ...

  • Tiny materials in countless products raise big questions for environment and health

    Nanotechnology opens a universe of possibilities — but also creates a world of unknowns. In recent years, efforts to develop the Next Big Thing — whether in medicine, computer technology, pollution prevention or high-performance materials — have turned to some really, really small things: nanomaterials. Working at the ...

  • CPV market starts to gain momentum

    Talk of a concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) market that is about to take off will court derision from some quarters, with sceptics arguing that they’ve heard it all before. But this industry has undoubtedly matured in recent times, and there is very good reason to believe that CPV deployments will rise and rise, offering a great opportunity for makers of triple-junction cells that can fulfil ...

  • Distributed Measurements Unlock the Future of Design

    The next generations of materials and design will require sensing technologies that can monitor beyond the scope of point sensors such as thermocouples and strain gauges. New sensing platforms based on optical fibers can obtain spatially continuous, real time data, giving developers detailed insight across broad areas into how their materials and designs behave. Such systems also can sense ...
