Medical Device Design: Innovation from concept to market

This ebook presents the bridge among engineering layout and scientific machine improvement. there is not any unmarried textual content that addresses the plethora of layout matters a scientific units fashion designer meets while constructing new items or enhancing older ones. It addresses clinical units' regulatory (FDA and ecu) requirements--some of the main stringent engineering requisites globally.

Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine in Ophthalmology

With an more and more elderly inhabitants, eye illnesses have gotten extra frequent. Biomaterials have contributed in recent times to various scientific units for the recovery of eyesight, enhancing many sufferers' caliber of existence. hence, biomaterials and regenerative drugs have gotten more and more vital to the advances of ophthalmology and optometry.

Religion and the Implications of Radical Life Extension

What when you figured out you'll dwell a fit existence lasting for 1000 years or longer? Advances in biomedical know-how elevate the theoretical chance that folks may perhaps dramatically lengthen or maybe indefinitely expand “healthy” human lifestyles. If this technology of “radical existence extension” is discovered and the expertise turns into generally on hand, it will arguably have a extra radical impression on humanity than the other improvement in historical past.

Example text

These products can be further cross-linked with compounds such as epichlorohydrin to give higher molecular weight polycondensates. Polyamines produced from an amine such as dimethylamine and epichlorohydrin are covered on page 48. These polyamines are primarily used as fixatives, for charge neutralisation or deposit control, rather than as retention aids. They are, however, also used to promote the performance of retention aids. Polyamidoamines Products for use in the paper industry can be obtained by condensing adipic acid and diethylenetriamine at high temperature and reacting with an excess of epichlorohydrin.

Typically, FWAs are supplied as 20% solutions, but suspensions and powders are also found in the market. The FWAs used in the paper industry are mostly derivatives of 4,4’-diaminostilbene2,2’-disulphonic acid, and three main types are used. When they are used in tissue, disulphonated or tetrasulphonated products are added into the paper-making furnish. Increasingly FWAs are supplied without additives such as urea, and stable products can then be produced only if they are ultra-filtered. The main FBAs used in paper-making are summarised below.

For packaging papers and many board products, removal of the printing inks is not necessary. The printing inks remaining in the paper cause a greyish-brown colouration, which precludes its use for higher-grade products. This is not the case for tissue paper, where chemical de-inking and ash removal are essential. Chemical de-inking In the washing process, surfactants are used to aid the detachment of ink and contaminant particles from the fibres and keep them in suspension, preventing re-deposition.
