  • IVF Cryopreservation and Safe Handling Practices

    Couples that want to have a baby but have not been able to conceive naturally are drawn to invitro fertilization (IVF) treatments. In an IVF treatment, several eggs are fertilized at once, which creates multiple embryos. While more than one embryo may be implanted, to spur the odds of pregnancy, there are inevitably some unused embryos. The remaining embryos may be preserved cryogenically, for ...

  • Pepsi Is Launching the First Ever “Nitro Soda”

    Nitrogen-infused or nitro beverages have been among the biggest trends in the beverage industry. There's been no shortage of nitro cold brew coffees and nitro beers, but never a nitro soda—until now, with the launch of Nitro Pepsi. The new beverage was sampled at the 2019 Super Bowl and while you won't find it on tap just yet, here's what you can look forward to. Introducing Nitro ...

  • What is a Room Oxygen Deficiency Monitor?

    Many industries use compressed gas to create products. While compressed gases such as nitrogen are low-cost, easy to use, and flexible in a range of industries, these gases have a hidden downside: They displace oxygen from the air, which puts your workers at risk of suffocation if there's a leak. A room oxygen monitor checks levels of oxygen and provides in-time alerts if there's a gas leak. ...

  • Thermal mass flow meter for Compressed air solution - Case study

    iCenta delivered the IC-MCF Air Flow Meter complete with ancillary accessories. The IC-MCF air flow meter is indispensable for managing energy use with compressed air / nitrogen up to 12000 L/min (normal). The inexpensive mass flow meter provides precision and wide rangeability as a result of being micro-machined, integration of a micro-flow sensor and advanced channel-design technology. The ...

  • Tips for Refinery Gas Analysis

    Refinery gas analysis (RGA) is an important application in oil and gas which characterizes the gases produced during crude oil refining, including stack emission, flame and reformate streams. The challenge in RGA analysis is the reliable analysis of variable sources and compositions of gases produced via fluid catalytic cracking (FCC). The analysis must be quick and accurate to allow engineers to ...

  • Zero Air and on-site gas generation

    Zero Air is air which is filtered to ensure it only contains less than 0.1 parts per million (PPM) of total hydrocarbons. Essentially a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen, zero air is required for laboratory applications which would be negatively affected by the presence of hydrocarbons or small levels of sulphur or nitrous oxide. These gases can sometimes be present in air due to ...
