Wastewater surveillance is becoming an increasingly important component of human health monitoring. In 1854, wastewater testing in London revealed the source of the city’s cholera outbreak. Nearly a century later, scientists used wastewater as part of the detection and eradication strategy against polio. Over time, pathogen testing of wastewater has expanded from a handful of analytes to a complete compendium of chemistries, microbiology, and most recently, virology. [Read More]
During the first week of August 2022, the Houston Astros played the Red Sox in Fenway Park. Christian Vazquez had been a catcher playing on that field since 2014. On August 1, he found himself playing on the same field but in a different uniform, that of the Astros. He had been traded just as the series was going to start; this change elicited a reaction of “baseball is a business”. Change is one of those things we all have to deal with, and a good approach to it requires constant preparation. [Read More]
Structured Content Authoring (SCA) is a standardized method where technical content is controlled by pre-defined guidelines. The technical writer marks up the content according to what it semantically represents and agreed guidelines. The writer is not concerned with editing styling or formatting. The idea is to develop discoverable, reusable, adaptable, reconfigurable templates for storing, tagging, standardizing, and translating critical content. [Read More]
Laboratories are rapidly adapting to latest technologies for a variety of reasons like: High quality standards, Stringent regulatory norms set by industry governing bodies, Standard operating procedures, Need for better control over workflow & processes, High standards to maintain data security & data integrity, Need for higher productivity due to increasing cost & workload [Read More]
In this 2022 journal article published in Separations, Cicaloni et al. present their finding from applying advanced analysis techniques and statistical survey methods to five different Cannabis sativa cultivars grown in Italy. After providing an introduction on the chemical characteristics of cannabis, the authors describe their materials and methods used, including solid-phase microextraction and ultra-performance liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry, as well as statistical methods such as partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) and heat mapping with principal component analysis (PCA). After thoroughly presenting their results, the authors discuss their findings, concluding that given the vital importance of understanding the chemical composition of cannabis "for the development of new products for pharmaceutical, medical, and other uses," their results should "provide more information on C. sativa inflorescences from five different cultivars, which may be useful for further investigations of metabolite applications in scientific research."
