  • Fitting pieces for biosensors

    Research and industry are increasingly exploiting the potential of aptamers. As well as their application in research, medical diagnosis and treatment, aptamers are also interesting as a basis for biosensors for use in environmental analysis because their characteristics enable them to identify and bind target molecules as surely as a key fits a lock. In a new book, researchers at the Helmholtz ...

  • Made to measure

    Carrying out sound insulation measurements is set to become much simpler for building acoustic practitioners with Brüel & Kjær’s new Power Amplifier: 2734-B.As building acoustic assessments are now used widely to certify rooms for their intended use, diagnose noise nuisance issues and improve music or theatre performing spaces, the job of measuring sound insulation or reverberation time has ...

  • Measurements on the Move

    Performing noise source identification on moving vehicles is now an easier process with Brüel & Kjær’s Moving Source Option. Unlike traditional Beamforming kits, the Moving Source software follows a mobile target, instead of focusing on a single point. It tracks linear movement parallel to a planar microphone array and enables speed-position calculation from a radar signal, ...
