CBMi partners with ThermoFisher Scientific for protocol-centered LIMS
News Aug 07, 2013
CBMi has partnered with ThermoFisher Scientific to implement a unique protocol-centered LIMS to specifically support clinical and translational research. The resulting extension of ThermoFisher’s Nautilus product allows researchers to accession and query samples within the context of a larger clinical protocol and is currently being used by CHOP’s Clinical and Translational Resource Center to support ongoing research.
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.
