  • Case study - The convenient and reliable alternative to chemical-based gas measurement within your incubators

    With a typical laboratory having many incubators of different types and ages, checking CO2 and O2 levels is a challenge.  Even the most modern incubators need to be checked.  An electronic gas analyser offers a faster and more convenient method than historically popular chemical analysis.  Geotech looks at why their digital gas analyser, the G100, is fast becoming the go to product ...

  • Climate-displaced persons deserve a dignified transition. Here’s how to make it happen.

    As distasteful as it might be to some, the designation “climate refugee” is key to ensuring a planned, orderly transition for the millions facing displacement in the decades ahead. Undoubtedly, the recent Paris climate agreement achieved at COP 21 deserves recognition as the world’s first multilateral accord to curb climate change. But ...

  • Why does the market need a new Phosgene indicator badge?

    Usage of Phosgene Phosgene (COCl2) is a non combustible but very toxic gas. It is a raw material for plastics like Polycarbonates (i. e. Macrolon) or Polyurethanes. Monitoring of Phosgene Plants using or manufacturing Phosgene of course underlay strict safety regulations. Therefore they are equipped with portable and fixed gas detectors for Phosgene. While ...

  • Argon Gas, 3D Printing, and How to Stay Safe

    For the average person, Argon gas is not a topic of daily conversation, or, for that matter, any conversation, ever. It may be surprising to learn that argon is the third most common gas in the earth’s atmosphere, though most people know little about it. The word argon itself comes from a Greek word meaning ‘inactive’ because of its lack of chemical reactions. Argon is ...

  • Understanding the Benefits of Fixed Gas Detection

    "Fixed gas detection is an essential method of ensuring maximum protection for personnel and plant. There are a variety of technologies available for a multitude of applications. Understanding fixed gas detection is the first step in providing safety." What is fixed gas detection? Fixed gas detection is installed with the aim of providing continuous, area and personnel protection. ...

  • Personal Noise Solutions for Miners

    Throughout the working day, miners are continually exposed to varying levels of noise which can result in hearing loss. For safety reasons it is important to monitor employees’ noise exposure and Cirrus Research has created such a device in the form of the CR: 110A doseBadge. The Cirrus Research doseBadge is the original wireless personal noise dosemeter. It is the ideal tool to carry out ...

  • Screening technique to estimate high benzo[a]pyrene concentrations near roads

    The emission factors of benzo[a]pyrene for gasoline cars and for diesel cars were measured by directly collecting the exhaust gas using a portable sampling equipment and became 660 ng km–1 and 1700 ng km–1, respectively. The regression equations to easily evaluate the concentrations at the roadsides and at the crossroads were introduced as the functions of building height, road width, ...

  • Gas Analyser Unit

    Gas Analysers are used in several industries, chemical industries in particualr use gas analysers to monitor their gas emission levels, air quality samples are compared to high purity reference gases to analyse and measure the emissions.  A common practice is to “calibrate” the sample air against clean, dry pure reference gases such as H2, He, Ar, or N2. The ...

  • A numerical analysis of the aspiration efficiency of a personal sampler

    The impact on sampling efficiency of increasing the flow rate of a low flow personal sampler has been examined. Increases in flow rates were required to obtain sufficient particle mass over the duration of a typical rush hour commute (3.5?16.7 litres/min). Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling has been used to assess the implications of this higher flow on the aspiration efficiency of the ...

  • Editorial

    WHEN I was potty training my first child, someone gave me a copy of a book, Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi. The simple message of the book is everyone eats, therefore they must poop. As I saw it, the point was that pooping is a natural process, everyone does it, and there is no reason to be afraid or repulsed. I was reminded of this toilet training book recently when BioCycle editor Rhodes Yepsen ...

  • FCC offers free VHF radio spectrum (MURS) for personal and business use

    Radio communications is a growing, cost-effective solution for environmental monitoring applications. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) governs the allocation of communications frequencies world-wide, with participation by each nation’s communications authority (The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States).Radio modems are designed with specific frequency ranges ...

  • Determination of hemoglobin adduct of a musk xylene metabolite in trout as biomarker of exposure by gas chromatography mass spectrometry

    Musk xylene (MX) is frequently used as fragrances in formulation of personal care products. Quantification of a bound 4-amino-MX(4-AMX) as cysteine adducts in trout hemoglobin (Hb) was made by gas chromatography-ion trap-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The Hb samples were collected from trout after 24 h exposure to MX at 10µg/g, and or menhaden oil (control). The formation of cysteine-Hb adduct was ...
