Vaccines can easily become damaged or unusable at almost any step of the manufacturing and shipping process. Pharmaceutical companies wanting to maintain their margins and high standards of quality need to take measures to prevent error and contamination.
For 21 years, Danny Florence has lived with one hand. But when he became a father, he decided to apply for an Open Bionics Hero Arm. With the help of the maxon driven prosthesis he can now build a strong bond with his son.
As an independent laser integrator with our own application labs in which we test and select the best laser for the job, we have conducted testing on USP lasers for polymer processing and want to share some of our findings and recommendations for success.
While legacy stent and tube cutting systems have performed well during recent decades, new cutting technologies coming onto the market offer faster and better cuts, with higher production rates and new and unique cutting capabilities.
Steve Dent for enGadget: You still can't get a 3D-printed liver transplant made from your own cells, but an Australian hospital is trying to push the tech into the mainstream. The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane is building a dedicated "biofabrication" space where doctors and researchers can develop tech to model and print cartilage, bone and other human tissue. "It will be the first time a biomanufacturing institute will be co-located with a high-level hospital," said Australian Minister of Health Cameron Dick.
The facility will occupy two floors of the hospital and use state of the art tissue manufacturing tech in surgery procedures. "Our vision for healthcare is that the biofabrication institute will pave the way for 3D printers to sit in operating theaters, ready to print tissue as needed, in our hospitals of the future," Dick said.

For the first time a Carbon fiber reinforced composite material for 3D printing, Windform SP by CRP Technology, has been used to manufacture the functional prototype of a driver airbag housing container. The test has led to very good results as the material exhibits an excellent mechanical performance in terms of high strength and impact resistance as well a good thermal stability between a low and high range of temperatures.
