Manufacturers to Offer Innovative Sensors to Remain Buoyant in the European Sensors Market, Finds Frost & Sullivan


Taking into account the climate change and growing environmental consciousness, sensors that can help users achieve greater energy efficiency are likely to be more popular than the ones used in other applications. In the current economic scenario, the rising costs of energy are making a robust ...


Tiny sensors tucked into cell phones could map airborne toxins in real time


A tiny silicon chip that works a bit like a nose may one day detect dangerous airborne chemicals and alert emergency responders through the cell phone network. If embedded in many cell phones, its developers say, the new type of sensor could map the location and extent of hazards like gas leaks ...


Energy-autonomous sensors in logistics: continuous control of perishable goods


The safety and quality in the food supply of today’s globally organized and networked supply chain is everything else than warranted. More than 50% of all foodstuffs are spoiled in the transport routes; alone in Great Britain this makes up 17 million tons and approximately 20 billion Euros. ...


Improved security for dairy products: Minilab identifies antibiotic residues in milk


No one wants antibiotic residues in their milk. But antibiotics are sometimes used even in the dairy barn. The routine tests conducted nowadays take hours to produce a result and do not test for all of the typical antibiotics. This gap can now be closed, thanks to a fully automated minilab ...


Heinrich Emanuel Merck Award for 2010 granted to leading Italian scientist

Professor Torsi from the University of Bari receives Analytical Sciences distinction


Merck KGaA announced that the 2010 Heinrich Emanuel Merck Award for Analytical Sciences will go to Luisa Torsi, Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Bari in Italy. This marks the first time that the award has been given to a woman and to a scientist in Italy. The award, which is ...


Materials research advances reliability of faster 'smart sensors'


In military and security situations, a split second can make the difference between life and death, so North Carolina State University's development of new "smart sensors" that allow for faster response times from military applications is important. Equally important is new research from NC State ...


Weizmann scientists developed an electronic 'nose' that can predict the pleasantness of novel odors

These findings have implications for automated environmental toxicity monitoring and transmitting scent digitally


Weizmann Institute scientists have 'trained' an electronic system to be able to predict the pleasantness of novel odors, just like a human would perceive them – turning the popular notion that smell is completely personal and culture-specific on its head. In research published in PLoS ...


Cell phones that protect against deadly chemicals? Why not?

Crowdsourcing cell phones to detect chemicals


Do you carry a cell phone? Today, chances are it's called a "smartphone" and it came with a three-to-five megapixel lens built-in—not to mention an MP3 player, GPS or even a bar code scanner. This 'Swiss-Army-knife' trend represents the natural progression of technology—as chips become ...


Scent or stench? Odors of diapers and aroma compounds can be measured objectively


For consumables like diapers and also for many foodstuffs the smell is a very decisive factor. Consumers can be convinced more easily, if it smells good. And also during the use of the product the smell is essential. Today, the human nose is still the best gauge to determine which product is most ...


Tiny gold probes give scientists a sense of how disease develops


Tiny chemical sensors implanted into patients could help diagnose disease and track its progress, following a development by scientists from the University of Edinburgh. Researchers have developed tiny probes comprising gold-coated particles. These can be inserted into cells, enabling diseases to ...
