Integrating labs in the production chain with digital twins and threads
Integrating labs in the production chain with digital twins and threads
Two key expressions of digitalization in Smart Industry are digital threads and digital twins,” Van Barneveld says. Digital threads are the strings of digital information that accom- pany products on their journey through the production chain. Digital information is added at every step along the way, in the manufacture of parts, components and end products. This data can pertain to the quality and origin of raw materials or to the production condition. “Today’s assertive customers demand demonstrable quality, based in part on complete traceability. On top of that, there’s a demand for personalized products and packaging. You want to order green M&Ms only? No problem!” says Van Barneveld.
Tips for culturing mesenchymal stromal cells
Tips for culturing mesenchymal stromal cells
Ideally, cultured cells have the same characteristics as cells that develop in the patient’s body. But in practice, there are still many obstacles to be overcome in the development of cellular therapies. To begin with, cultured cells need not only to possess the right weapons to attack a tumor, but they must also move in the right direction. That doesn’t always happen, noticed Carlijn Voermans, head of the Cellular Therapy Department at Sanquin, during her research into mesenchymal stromal cell-based the- rapy. Mesenchymal stromal cells are very young cells that mature in the body to become part of cartilage, bone, adipose tissue and other supportive tissues.
Extra scrumptious tomatoes
Extra scrumptious tomatoes
How is the growth and ripening of fruit regulated? That’s what researcher Ruud de Maagd at Wageningen Plant Research focuses on. The CRISPR-Cas system enables him to edit the genome much more precisely. “Basing our research on the tomato as a model fruit, we use CRISPR-Cas to inhibit certain genes, particularly transcription factors, to determine what their function is. In the past, we did this by means of spontaneous mutants or RNA interference. The dra- wback was that it was difficult to inhibit a gene completely or to inhibit one specific gene if there were several similar genes. CRISPR-Cas works much better and allows us to be far more precise,”
LiFi: LEDs for data transmission
LiFi: LEDs for data transmission
Is LiFi about to revolutionize data exchange in clean- rooms? LiFi, or light fidelity technology, is like WiFi without the radio waves. Based on Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), LiFi uses visible UV and Near InfraRed light. The advantage is that light has a much broader spectrum, enabling users to exchange data far more rapidly. This is because LEDs can be switched on and off millions of times per second and this is used to transmit an enormous amount of data. It’s like morse code in a supersonic dimension.
