The Benefits of Non-Invasive Flow Meters for Bioprocessing

Bioprocessing is a broad term encompassing the research, development, manufacturing, and commercialization of products prepared from or used by biological systems, including food, feed, fuels, biopharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. In other words, bioprocessing is the alteration or application of biologically derived …

Autoclavable Sensors In Life Critical Applications

What does it mean when saying “Autoclavable Sensors”? Autoclavable devices require compatibility with high heat, moisture and often bleach or other high pH fluids. Medical devices that come in contact with human tissues or fluids are considered to be high-risk devices and they require sterilization so they must undergo autoclave processes after each procedure. Hygenic medical devices that require autoclave operations might include surgical staplers, surgical robots, handheld surgical devices, dental tools, medical examination procedures.

pressure and force measurements and the differences

The Difference Between Pressure and Force Explained

It’s easy for some people to get pressure confused with force, and vice-versa. One of the main reasons is because pressure cannot exist without force. While they are similar in this regard, the difference between the 2 is simple: force is …
