New Stanford Hospital Officially Opens Its Door to Set New Standard of Care -

– The new Stanford Hospital opened its doors to patients on November 17, 2019, that includes 368 private patient rooms, 20 operating rooms and four acres of gardens. – More than 1,600 staff members and faculty help support the transition of around 200 patients into a new 824,000-square-foot hospital in 3.5 hours. On Sunday, Stanford Health Care officially open its doors to the new Stanford Hospital and safely transporting around 200 patients to the new facility across the sky bridge that connects to the existing hospital at 300 Pasteur Drive. More than 1,600 staff and faculty were involved in making a successful transition. Patient transportation began at 9 a.m. The last patient arrived into the new building at 12:30 p.m. The move day started at 7 a.m. with the opening of the new emergency department at 1199 Welch Road, which serves adult and trauma patients. The existing emergency department at 900 Quarry Road Extension is now dedicated to pediatric patients, further increasing emergency services at the hospital. “In a period of roughly three and a half hours, a team of more than sixteen hundred Stanford Health Care employees moved hundreds of adult patients from the existing h...

Cell Culture Protein Surface Coatings Market will Going to be Worth US$ 623.4 Mn by 2020

A handful of well-entrenched large companies dominate the global market for cell culture protein surface coatings market. Greiner Bio-One International AG, Corning Incorporated, Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, Merck Millipore, and Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. are to name a few of them. Stiff competition exists between these players on account of their constant efforts to come up with more effective products. To reach their dominant positions, they have also banked upon mergers and acquisitions and partnerships. A recent report on the market for cell culture protein surface coatings finds that it would reach a value of US$623.4 mn by the end of 2020. Depending upon the source of protein, the market has been classified into plant protein, animal protein, human protein, and synthetic protein. Among these, the synthetic protein accounts for considerable market share and is rising at an impressive pace. This is primarily on account of surging demand for animal-free surface coatings, particularly in the nations of North America and Europe. On the basis of geography, North America accounted for a substantial share in the market for cell culture protein coatings. The superior healthcare in...

Industrial femtosecond lasers and material processing

Over the last five years, material processing with femtosecond pulses in the range of 300 to 900 fs has gained in popularity. Over the last five years, material processing with femtosecond pulses in the range of 300 to 900 fs has gained in popularity due to the small heat-affected zone (HAZ) and increased energy penetration depth resulting from the high laser pulse intensity. Industrial ultrashort-pulse (USP) diode-pumped solid-state and fiber lasers are now being used to cut foils for flat panel displays, to cut stents, and to drill fuel injector nozzles, as well as for wafer scribing and surface microstructuring. The first industrial use of femtosecond laser pulses for microprocessing dates back to the late 1990s, where titanium sapphire (Ti:sapphire) amplifiers were used to repair lithography masks in integrated circuit fabrication. At that time, the only choice in commercial laser sources were Q-switched, neodymium (Nd)-doped solid-state lasers delivering pulse duration of tens of nanoseconds, and ultrafast Ti:sapphire amplifiers that exhibited pulse durations of 100 fs and provided output power at the 1 W level at 1 kHz (FIGURE 1). The small feature size of the chromium lay...

The deadbolt installed on your front door right now likely serves its purpose. It locks, it

The deadbolt installed on your front door right now likely serves its purpose. It locks, it unlocks — and it does what it can to keep out any unwanted guests. That’s probably enough. Smart locks won’t necessarily make your home any safer, but they will allow for more control — so that you can lock and unlock your door remotely (whether you’re home or away) and even extend “digital keys” to friends, family, caregivers and anyone else you regularly admit into your home. Sure, you can still use a regular ol’ key to open a smart-lock-equipped door (or most of them, anyhow), but don’t be too quick to discount the convenience of connectivity — especially when your hands are full of grocery bags, a stroller or anything else that makes it tough to rummage around for your keys. And when you crawl into bed, wondering if you remembered to lock the door, you won’t need to throw a bathrobe on and stumble out to the front door — you can just check the lock status — and lock it — all via your phone while tucked safely under th covers. That said, not all smart locks are the same. There are keyless options, Bluet...

New Fastening Tools, Accessories Improve Ergonomics, Accuracy | 2016-02-10

3arm America exhibited the Series 3 tool-support arm. Separate radial and tilting sections enable this arm to rotate 360 degrees so workers can more safely perform assembly and lifting. Because each section is a different length, the arm improves ergonomics so workers can reach multiple areas comfortably and do not experience early fatigue. According to ASSEMBLY magazine’s annual Capital Equipment Spending Survey, more than half of all U.S. assembly plants use some sort of threaded or unthreaded fastener to put together their products. Good thing, then, that The ASSEMBLY Show hosted some 38 suppliers of screwdrivers, nutrunners, screw feeders, torque-reaction arms, rivet guns and other fastening products. The systems are available in several different configurations, including standard, rigid, retracting barrel and counterbore tip designs. These machines are custom-designed for vertical applications, with the nosepiece jaws fitting the customer’s part. Inline screwdriver assemblies can be designed for a wide range of applications and fastener types, including screws, bolts, nuts, pins or nails. The standard screw feeder system cycles quickly, delivering screws in less than 1 sec...

EFFILUX has released a new line of hyperspectral lighting solution products based on a proprietary LED

EFFILUX has released a new line of hyperspectral lighting solution products based on a proprietary LED that offers a tunable continuous spectrum from 400 nm to 900 nm. The LED can be strobed and multiple LEDs can be mounted on a single PCB for increased output intensity. According to the manufacturer, the new LED provides spatial and spectral uniformity without wavelength-dependent angular absorption effects. The new LED is designed for implementation in various designs including bar, ring, backlight, line light, and projector, among others. EFFILUX currently offers the new LED in its EFFI-Flex bar light. The new LED will soon be available in the EFFI-BL backlight and EFFI-SHARP projector.

How Twisted X Boots Bridges the Work and Western Boot Markets

When Western boot brand Twisted X entered the work boot market in 2007, the company knew it would face off with some heavy hitters. However, the independently owned, Decatur, Texas, company, which launched just two years earlier, had an angle: It would stick to its cowboy roots by offering classic Western styles with safety features. Since then, Twisted X has expanded its work collection to appeal to a wider demographic. The company offers men’s and women’s safety mocs, hikers and lace-ups, retailing from $150 to $200, in addition to a companion collection of everyday non-safety casuals that includes children’s styles. But what has really opened doors to a more diverse range of customers is the brand’s casual safety looks. “We have profiles that touch a lot of different needs and uses when you look at safety-toe casuals being adopted by those in tech manufacturing or warehousing,” said brand manager Brandon Forquer. “They don’t need a heavy-duty Western or lace-up boot. They need something comfortable that meets their [safety] requirements.” With continued consumer demand for comfort, the company introduced its proprietary CellStretch technology this spring. “It’s key when you t...
