Neuroscience: The key to understanding mental health
It is mental health awareness month. And understanding mental health is now more important than ever before. Growing geriatric cases was a trend of the past. Mental health disorders have been affecting a broader spectrum of the population.
A medical microbiologist’s perspective on the current-day proteomics
Microorganisms, the tiny living creatures, that dwell in every niche, occupying an area greater than us behemoths, are highly valuable. An appreciable proportion of our body weight results from our direct association with them. Their mere presence is capable of preventing a number of diseases and an alteration in their proportions may cause an illness.
Robot-assisted packaging for better hygiene and safety
About one-tenth of the food-sector jobs in the US are expected to be replaced with automation tools and software by 2025. Food and beverage conferences 2018 say that the labor-intensive environment of this industry will soon be transformed with higher levels of automation.
Generating the regeneration process of stem cell
As unique as the word suggest, stem cells are predominantly termed as a certain class of uniform cells which have the characteristics of being differently able into specialized cell types. Mostly stem cells are described as stable at the natural level and separate (through mitosis) to create numerous similar cells. Although, most warm-blooded have two different types of stem cells they can also be found in multicellular living bions.

Human beings have always evolved beyond possession. Adaptations are part of evolution. But interventions crave paths for additive contrivances.
Medicine world has been subjected to a lot of variations recently.
Does chemical engineering affect the materialization on a global scale?
In recent times there has been a lot of speculation about several branches of technology. Studying them at a wider view helps recount things that the particular branch explains.
Chemical Engineering and Technology deals with a similar trend. It posses technical advancements for development of various chemical processes as well as the methods for converting raw materials into usable valued forms, chemically. Subsequently, it is progressed by students for the production of chemical and such relatable by-products.
What is it!
Branches of Chemical Engineering and Technology is varied as the overall study involves a large subgroup. Biotechnology, processing of mineral, induction of Pharma along with chemically enhanced substances all fall under the field. Additionally, petroleum refining plant is a major subdivision that offers a constant Job settlement for Chemical engineers all around the globe. Petroleum refining plants engulf majority of workers who relate to chemical engineering and technology.
The main base of the field involves the creation of plans for certain pilot entrepreneurs dealing with chemical factories. Moreover, the new plant designs and specifications require a constant check up as they account for most biologically induced hazards. Therefore, chemical engineers act as consulting employee while overall funding is mostly achieved by government. Often these processes are also limited which greatly dictates and questions about the plant’s process mechanism and choice of equipment and materials
Influencing Chemical Plants
The construction of the base of plants is coordinated by chemical engineers, which largely depends on the investment. Additionally, the process also helps in distinguishing renewable materials and the chemical thermodynamics which greatly varies with the raw materials which are used by the company.
Unit operations constitute an important process in the establishment of the plant. Crystallization, filtration, evaporation and so on are major processes involved in here. The Control of energy transfer along with recycling of reactants is even covered which the chemical engineer predominantly acts upon. Various chains involving unit processes like nitration and oxidation usually follows the transformation of substance by means of biochemical, thermochemical and so on.
A separate category of process design is also manifested in the plants which have the blueprint of all equipment being used along with the sizes. Accordingly, their connectivity and durability are also recorded. A detailed sketch is printed in the Process Flow Diagram which decides the control of the overall capacity and strength of the chemical plant.
Chemical Nanotechnology, Polymer, and Chemical Thermodynamics are additional fields where Chemical engineering meets. Ordinarily, waste management is an important process as the by-products of large industries pose a fatal threat to the atmosphere. Hence, that even has a key role in Chemical Engineering.
3rd International Conference on Chemical Engineering & Technology 2023
The Upcoming Chemical Engineering Conference in Dubai exhibits tremendous perspicacity into Chemical Engineering and Technology. Particularly backed by notable speakers and researchers around the globe, it demonstrates the increasing diversity of the field. The conference in Dubai aims at contributing paths which would be crucial to improving subsistence of quality of human beings.
A worldwide aspect of “Emerging Infectious Disease”.
Discoveries in infectious diseases have made the world a “not so safe” place to live. Consequently, China accounts for merely one-third of it. It occupies half of the world’s total swine population, most consisting the African Swine flu. A conference on the Emerging Infectious Diseases 2023, held in Alabama, USA supports facts surrounding the prevention and outbreaks of several infectious diseases.
African Swine Flu, Origin and Characteristics.
The virus of African Swine flu is pretty much difficult to destroy. Described by scientists as one of the deadliest, didn’t turn to China in a single night.
Nevertheless, the USA, being one of the largest producers of Pork meat, didn’t quite deliver the disease to China. Conversely, Russia is the reason for the swine flu outbreak in China.
As said by a UN agency, the virus Outbreak in China is quite similar to parts of Russia, Estonia, and Georgia.
With capabilities to tolerate heat and cold, African Swine flu can accommodate at the inside of meat for weeks. Containing the pigs and quarantine procedures are helpful in preventing the disease from getting viral.
Currently, Vietnam is taking steps to contain the disease from further being spread in East Asia. Europe and Rome have similarly taken steps to contain and quarantine 135,000 pigs. The United States hasn’t been affected yet, with the disease being confined to pigs only.
The Infectious Outbreaks
Notwithstanding to African Swine Flu alone, Ebola and HIV/AIDS have been classified as “emerging infectious disease” in the past. The current trend is being centered at Africa alone (that’s where it gets the name). It exists with the bush pigs, warthogs and wild pigs in the forest, which in turn is associated with an African Diet.
The idea behind outbreaks.
The destruction of natural resources in Africa has further aggravated several other unknown diseases in the Globe. Additionally, Africa’s population is also on a rising spree, which due to climate change is susceptible to these diseases.
When they migrate, in the search of work or shifting process, the diseases spread on a wide scale. As such the American cooperation has been coordinating with the African ministry of health and African Non-Governmental organization to contain such threats.
Techniques and Methods to use.
The current techniques associated with the above trends of Viral infectivity is slow, difficult to measure, intensive and proves a hindrance in the development process of advanced medications.
Henceforth, responding the calls and threats such as Ebola, Influenza, Swine Flu, and Zika Virus is tiresome and consumes a lot of time.
The existing procedures for the quantification of these diseases are relying solely on fluorescent antibodies. As such the new viruses are likely to evolve as the tests require many months to a year, for being developed into full-fledged vaccines.
The African Swine flu till yet has no vaccines. Luma Cyte’s Label-free radiance instrument has been proposed to be a significantly improved solution for the growing outbreaks. This particular thing is further being studied by researchers around the globe.
What is LumaCyte?
Ordinarily, LumaCyte‘s Radiance is a cell analyzer, with automated, high content force, size and deformability features of capturing images of single cells. It works by measuring the intrinsic biochemical and physical properties of cell, changes which are undergone due to repeated viral infections. It is often sensitive to several agents that interfere to cellular structures and change biochemical compositions.
Accordingly, high-quality measurements of viral infectivity can be made easily within a fraction of time and labor which will act as an endpoint dilution to the infection process.
