Book on Safe Work Behaviour published Translation of the book 'De eerstelijns leidinggevende en veilig werkgedrag'
Book on Safe Work Behaviour published
Translation of the book 'De eerstelijns leidinggevende en veilig werkgedrag' Syntax Media has released The first-line supervisor and safe work behaviour, by Juni Daalmans. This book is an English translation of Daalmans' book De eerstelijns leidinggevende en veilig werkgedrag. The fact is, the concept of Brain Based Safety which the author has developed is enjoying increasing interest abroad. This method translates recent knowledge of the brain into the encouragement of safe behaviour within organisations. This practical book describes the role of the first-line supervisor in the advancement of safe behaviour at work. As the link between the work floor and management, the first-line supervisor – of all parties – is the one who has the most influence on the behaviour of employees. His or her influence is described in the form of seven competencies, using a case which has been written on the basis of facts. You can best compare these seven competencies with dials, which you as a first-line supervisor can 'turn' to influence an employee's behaviour. From

Concordia University picks Micromeritics TriStar II for MOFs
Researchers at Concordia University Pick Micromeritics for High Throughput Metal-Organic F Researchers designing and synthesizing new metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) at Concordia University, Canada are benefiting from high throughput surface area and porosity characterization with a Micromeritics TriStar II Plus automated, three-station gas adsorption system. A key focus for the group is rare earth MOFs with potential for wastewater clean-up and luminescence-based hazardous chemical detection. “Surface area and porosity are defining characteristics of a MOF,” said Dr. Ashlee Howarth, Assistant Professor at Concordia University. “So, we need to be able to measure them as quickly and efficiently as possible. The TriStar runs 3 samples at a time, generating full data sets in 7 to 8 hours. This is extremely fast and means a same day result for my students; with some systems it would take 24 hours to run just a single sample. The ability to run three samples at once is really useful for confirming the reproducibility of a preparation method." MOFs are an exciting

What is a smart measurement probe and what makes it special?
The smart world is here to stay Smart devices, smart cars, smart buildings, and smart factories are becoming increasingly common. But what does “smart” really mean? While each smart object may have its own unique features, they share some basic characteristics. As the name indicates, smart objects typically have some sort of intelligence in the core design. They are usually connected to other devices or networks and can operate interactively and autonomously. Remote external access for service, operation, or analytics is also common. Sometimes the term “smart” can also refer to devices that have artificial intelligence built in. What is a smart measurement probe? Environmental measurement devices are also becoming smart. Unlike in the past when measurement probes could not be used on their own, the new wave of smart measurement probes can operate independently without additional transmitters. When the measurement intelligence is built into the probe, it may be able to operate independently and

MR Solutions’ preclinical imaging systems
Significantly reduce environmental impact Environmental impact is becoming a significant factor in the selection of suppliers even in preclinical imaging. The introduction of liquid helium free, high-end MRI systems by MR Solutions substantially reduces the environmental impact when compared to competitor units. The key factor is dispensing with the liquid helium bath which cools the magnet down in traditional systems to minus 269°C when it becomes superconducting and boosts the power of the magnet. Helium is becoming increasingly scarce on Earth, despite being the second most common element in the universe, as it leaks away into space. Most helium is created by the natural radioactive decay of heavy radioactive elements such as thorium and uranium, and is often found with natural gas from which it is extracted commercially. Liquid helium cooled, high field MRI systems require up to several hundred litres of liquid helium as well as ongoing top ups as it is impossible to stop the gas leaking away. Another

Finding the Match: 40 Antibody Resources for xMAP
The global market for research antibodies is expected to reach $3 billion in 2019. Selecting the right antibody that works for your specific assay is a daunting process that is often fraught with failure. A Nature article estimates that half of all of antibodies are considered bad. Bad antibodies are often the product of research that is not reproducible and certainly contributes to wasted research resources. Good Antibodies Make Great Assays For the successful use of an antibody on any platform, the method of antibody generation is an important consideration. Monoclonal antibodies are produced from hybridoma cell lines, whereas polyclonal antibodies are harvested from animal serum. Recombinant antibodies are more reliable compared to their monoclonal and polyclonal counterparts because they are made from cultured cell lines carrying an expression plasmid DNA or other expression construct.
