An Introduction to the Physics of Rapid Detection Tests
Rapid detection tests based on lateral flow assay (LFA), also called immunochromatographic tests, can be thought of as quite advanced, yet very robust, microlaboratories. (Part 1 of 2)
The Science Behind Cooking Caramel
Whether you’re adding it to brownies, crème brûlée, or an ice cream sundae, cooking caramel is a precarious task: One wrong move and it could burn and taste bitter or recrystallize and harden.
The Growing Use of Simulation in Pharmaceutical Development
Did you know that the development cycle of a drug can take years and cost millions of dollars? Simulation is 1 way to make pharmaceutical development processes faster and more cost effective.
Optimizing an NIV Mask Design with Multiphysics Simulation
NIV masks offer a form of noninvasive monitoring and ventilation for COVID-19 patients, which lessens the need for ventilators and other mechanical respirators.
Exploring the 4 Basic Modes of Electrophoresis
Zone electrophoresis, moving-boundary electrophoresis, isotachophoresis, and isoelectric focusing. In most cases, the physics of new electrophoretic methods can be related back to these 4 modes.
