With a temperature sensor in hand, researchers can engineer crops that produce yields in warmer climates When it gets hot outside, humans and animals have the luxury of seeking shelter in the shade or cool, air-conditioned buildings. But plants are stuck. While not immune to changing climate, plants respond to the rising mercury in different […]Continue Reading ...
The Environmental Inorganic Chemistry and Ceramic Materials Group of the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) in Castellón, Spain, has developed a research project to assess, transfer and exploit refreshing and photo-catalytic pigments (cool pigments) with a base of Scheelite that are used to decrease the temperature of buildings and also to absorb part of the environmental […]Continue Reading ...
A cutting-edge material, inspired by nature, that can regulate its own temperature and could equally be used to treat burns and help space capsules withstand atmospheric forces is under development at the University of Nottingham. The research paper, Temperature – dependent polymer absorber as a switchable state NIR reactor, is published in the journal Scientific […]Continue Reading ...
Magnetic resonance thermometry (MRT) is the only imaging technique that noninvasively provides temperature distribution in vivo. The water proton resonance frequency shift (PRFS)-based method is the most popular choice for MR temperature monitoring in aqueous tissues. A research team led by Prof. ZHENG Hairong from the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese […]Continue Reading ...
Aug 24 2018 Experienced medical device design, development, and manufacturing partner, ITL Group (a Gooch & Housego company) has announced further investment in its on-site PCB manufacturing facility. With more than 40 years PCB manufacturing experience, ITL is one of the few ISO13485 and FDA GMP certified UK companies that can provide high volume PCB […]Continue Reading ...
May 18, 2018 A major route toward creating effective vaccines against dengue virus and Zika involves the E protein that covers the surface of each viral particle. If we could develop strong antibodies against this E protein, then that would be the crux of a formidable vaccine – based on the important fact that the […]Continue Reading ...
April 12, 2018 University of Adelaide researchers have invented a world-first tiny fiber-optic probe that can simultaneously measure temperature and see deep inside the body. The probe may help researchers find better treatments to prevent drug-induced overheating of the brain, and potentially refine thermal treatment for cancers. “With an outer diameter of only 130 microns, […]Continue Reading ...
March 2, 2018 A new study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine has suggested that pregnant women can exercise in warm weather, take saunas or have short steam baths without affecting their unborn child. Credit: Natalia Deriabina/Shutterstock.com The study findings oppose the current suggestion that pregnant women should not be exposed to […]Continue Reading ...
Why do we age? Despite more than a century of research (and a vast industry of youth-promising products), what causes our cells and organs to deteriorate with age is still unknown. One known factor is temperature: Many animal species live longer at lower temperature than they do at higher temperatures. As a result, “there are […]Continue Reading ...
A new study, based on 27 years of data from Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, suggests that temperature increases over the last three decades have already caused major declines in local populations of tsetse flies. This analysis, published in the journal PLOS Medicine this week, provides a first step in linking temperature to the […]Continue Reading ...
Scientists have built a model that predicts how temperature affects the spread of Ross River virus, a common mosquito-borne virus in Australia, according to a report in the journal eLife. The research demonstrates the importance of using temperature to predict epidemics of mosquito-borne diseases and could help public health bodies prepare for the impact of […]Continue Reading ...
May 21, 2018 The hotter our body temperature, the more our bodies speed up a key defense system that fights against tumors, wounds or infections, new research by a multidisciplinary team of mathematicians and biologists from the Universities of Warwick and Manchester has found. The researchers have demonstrated that small rises in temperature (such as […]Continue Reading ...
April 30, 2018 Tell us about QED Scientific and why you are attending Health GB 2018. QED Scientific is the leading developer and supplier of patient warming equipment in the UK. We currently have some exports but are hoping to connect with new distributors that can help grow our business. Which products are you featuring […]Continue Reading ...
April 13, 2018 Ambient temperature has a marked effect on the toxicity of the most commonly used insecticides for malaria control, according to a study led by ISGlobal, an institution supported by the “la Caixa” Foundation. The results, published in Malaria Journal, underline the need to evaluate the efficacy of these chemicals under real field […]Continue Reading ...
September 28, 2017 The Division of Game and Workout Science at Portsmouth College, UK reviews on some great benefits of the usage of FLIR Programs thermal imaging cameras for measuring pores and skin temperature at relaxation, throughout workout, and restoration. Pores and skin temperature is a very powerful physiological measure that may mirror the presence […]Continue Reading ...
