Thanks to a computer program developed at Edith Cowan University, plant classification could become as simple as taking a photo.
Synbiosis has announced the availability of its next-generation Chromogenic ID software module for the ProtoCOL 3 and Protos 3 colony counters. The powerful software means microbiologists can identify and count any bacteria or yeast cultured on chromogenic plates from E&O Laboratories and CHROMagar in seconds.
As part of National Science Week, citizen scientists are being asked to help in classifying thousands of galaxies located 800 million to 4 billion light years away.
The RTC-900B rugged tablet computer has been designed to meet IP65 and MIL-STD 810G standards, making it resistant to moisture, dust, shock and vibration. The unit features an Intel Atom E3825 1.33 GHz dual core processor with 4 GB of DDR3L memory.
Interworld Electronics has released the SK-97-TP sealed medical keyboard. The full-size, 97-key keyboard includes a numeric keypad and 12 function keys. For added convenience and functionality, it also features an integrated touchpad with left- and right-click buttons.
Inova Translational Medicine Institute has selected a high-performance computer from SGI to enable researchers to obtain insights from its premier genomic database, said to be one of the largest in the world.
Mettler-Toledo has introduced its Collect+ data collection and visualisation software. The software shows users a visual overview of their operations, taking complicated process data and making it easy to understand at a glance.
Few QA/QC labs still cling to the old paper-based notebook systems of the past, but there's far more to becoming a paperless lab than simply eschewing paper.
Scientists have created software that tackles the big data problem for X-ray laser experiments - you can even go back and improve past scientific results.
XENON Systems has won a competitive tender to build a bespoke high-performance computer (HPC) for The University of Queensland (UQ), said to be capable of processing and analysing larger datasets than ever before.
Affymetrix Chromosome Analysis Suite (ChAS) 3.0 Software with Concurrent Molecular Analysis Profiling (CoMAP)20 April, 2015 | Supplied by: Millennium Science Pty Ltd
The Affymetrix Concurrent Molecular Analysis Profiling (CoMAP) program enables cancer researchers to gain rapid insight into the functional impact of DNA copy-number alterations by combining whole-genome copy-number data with gene expression profiles to easily visualise and identify cancer driver events.
Medical device manufacturers who combine discrete and batch processes in their operations can now use Rockwell Software PharmaSuite manufacturing execution system (MES) software as their sole track-and-trace platform, achieving tracking capabilities down to the smallest saleable unit.
