  • Biodiversity slows spread of pesticide resistance

    The ability of organisms to adapt to toxic chemicals like pesticides is essential for their survival, but also an agricultural annoyance. This study shows that interactions between different species can delay the development of pesticide resistance and therefore suggests that biodiversity supports effective pest management. When pest species are exposed to toxic chemicals, like pesticides, they ...

  • UPDATED WEAR RESISTANT LININGS BROCHURE

  • EFSA adopts opinion on antibiotic resistant bacteria

    EFSA’s Panel on Biological Hazards (BIOHAZ) has adopted an opinion on the role of food consumption and processing in human exposure to antimicrobial resistant (AMR) bacteria, an emerging biological hazard caused in part by the use of antimicrobial agents throughout the food chain, from the farm to the fork. The opinion, “Foodborne antimicrobial resistance as a biological hazard”, says that the ...

  • Development of a new ceramic membrane resistant to abrasion

    We are pleased to present you a new concept of membrane, specially dedicated to severe applications, where abrasion is a concern. WHAT FOR? In numerous applications, specially in MF and UF, the retentate contains highly abrasive particles. These particles, because of the high velocity of the retentate liquid, damage the membranes, thus reducing the lifetime. ...

  • Screening for antibiotic-resistant bacteria in drinking water

    Harmful bacteria in water are of concern, especially if they are resistant to antibiotics. A new Portuguese study reports on levels of a group of bacteria, staphylococci, in three different types of water in the treatment cycle and analyses their resistance to antibiotics. 'Coagulase-negative staphylococci' (CNS) are common and usually harmless. However, some CNS can cause skin infections when ...

  • Panama Canal Marine Resistivity Survey with SuperStingR8

    The AGI SuperStingR8 with marine streamer and graphite electrodes(US Patent 6,674,286) were deployed along the entire 77-km long Panama Canal at 25m transect spacing to total 773 line-km of data.  This is the largest towed marine resistivity survey of this type to date.  AGI SuperStingR8 Marine resistivity data were successfully used to estimate geotechnical properties of the canal ...

  • GRP Slurry Pipes Resist Extreme Abrasion

    Abrasive wear within the slurry piping systems occurs when hard particles are forced against, or slide along, the pipeline wall, causing continuous shearing and cutting that lead to loss of wall thickness. In harsher conditions, steel slurry pipes also need to be turned over at least every two months because pipes abrade more on one side than the other. In more extreme cases, these effects cause ...

  • Are Infections Caused by Aspergillus Fungi Developing Drug Resistance?

    A study recently published in the journal, Clinical Infectious Diseases, discovered azole-resistance markers in 75% of a small group of aspergillosis patients who had not previously been treated with an azole.  The research was conducted by the University of Manchester working with colleagues in the United States.    Aspergillosis is the disease cause by ...
