Autoscribe Launches New Website
News Oct 11, 2013
Autoscribe has launched a new combined UK and US website ( www.autoscribe.co.uk and www.autoscribeinformatics.com) to reflect the worldwide nature of Autoscribe’s business. With a fresher, cleaner look, much improved navigation, additional content and more downloads, the site features a new ‘market’ section which allows visitors to see at a glance the applications of information management systems in different market areas, as well as a more in depth view of the Business Solutions that are available.
Another new section is devoted to information on the unique configuration capabilities of the Matrix family of LIMS. The ‘OneTime configuration tools’ are the lynch pin of the Matrix Gemini LIMS, making it highly configurable, adaptable and flexible, within a standard product core. These tools are used to create the initial configuration at implementation and can be used subsequently by either Autoscribe or customers’ staff to further configure or re-configure the system to keep it in step with any changes to the laboratory workflow or business practices.
The new site also has a stronger focus on real-life uses of Autoscribe products, with more case studies, and a glimpse of some of Autoscribe’s clients. With agreement from many customers in place, a comprehensive program is under way to produce a whole series of new case studies to further illustrate the diversity of applications. These will be added to the new site as they are completed.
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
For scientists wrestling with problems as diverse as containing superhot plasma in a fusion reactor, improving the accuracy of weather forecasts, or probing the unexplained dynamics of a distant galaxy, turbulence-spawning shear flow is a serious complicating factor. A new supercomputer-powered effort aims to make modelling shear far easier.
