New Thermo Scientific Scientific HAAKE MARS iQ Rheometer Series Is Designed for Quality Control Labs

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: A Drug Can Relieve Persistent Daydreaming, Fatigue, and Brain Sluggishness in Adults

Researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai who led the study say the stimulant lisdexamfetamine (sold as Vyvanse) reduced by 30 percent self-reported symptoms of sluggish cognitive tempo. It also lowered by over 40 percent symptoms of ADHD and significantly corrected deficits in executive brain function, with fewer episodes of procrastination, improvements in keeping things in mind, and strengthened prioritization skills.

Lucida Medical (Cambridge University Spin-out) Joins GE Healthcare Edison™ Accelerator Programme

Lucida Medical was invited to join the Edison Accelerator programme for its pioneering work in helping identify prostate cancer and its exceptional development team led by Prof Evis Sala and Dr Antony Rix, both highly experienced in artificial intelligence, or AI, medical technology.

The Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS iQ Rheometer was specifically designed to meet the needs of QC labs with built-in features that assist users to deliver more reliable results. Key features such as touchscreen control that allows users to quickly execute standard operating procedures (SOPs) and intuitive “Connect Assist” functionalities mean QC lab technicians can deliver more consistent and reliable results, even in busy labs with multiple operators running tests.

“The capabilities of the new HAAKE MARS iQ Rheometer series were expanded to equip customers with an extremely capable and reliable QC instrument that can be customized for a lab’s needs today and in the future,” said Hanna Granö-Fabritius, senior business director of material characterization at Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Those capabilities include:

  • An intuitive, multilingual 7-inch touchscreen which allows users to run SOPs directly from the instrument with step-by-step guidance. The unique touchscreen on the instrument also shows instructions with images from the customer’s own lab to clearly illustrate how to do the analysis correctly, step-by-step, for each user that is specific to that lab’s process.
  • “Assist” functionalities that provide lab technicians comprehensive guidance to reduce user errors. For example, the Connect Assist for temperature modules and measuring geometries allows technicians to quickly change accessories with quick coupling, automatic recognition and accurate alignment.
  • Advanced testing methods and normal force capabilities measure axial forces in two directions. This supports texture analysis for sample bending, breaking and squeezing tests or tribology measurements for testing friction, lubrication and wear.
  • A newly designed frame and lift mechanism provide high vibrational damping, minimal temperature expansion and higher chemical resistance to help ensure consistent results.
