  1. Mobile Workers Can Only Work As Fast As Their Computers – How Fast Is Yours?

    Humans still control computers. At the same time, computers still dictate the extent to which humans can excel. Even the most skilled experts can only power through a task as quickly as their computer allows them. That’s not to say our speed of innovation or application of brilliant ideas is completely hampered by a slow computer. But insufficient computer performance can restrict workers’ productivity, and therefore, overall performance.

  2. How To Save Costs With Simple, Effective Data Management

    Water and wastewater utilities must monitor numerous aspects of their systems on a continuous basis. Various instruments are used to measure these processes, producing volumes of data every day. Endress+Hauser is a leading supplier of products and services for process measurement and automation. Water Online spoke with three of Endress+Hauser's experts to find out how data loggers and managers can save costs while providing effective data management. 

  3. Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor Technology Validated For Title 22 Compliance

    Title 22 of California’s Water Recycling Criteria is among the strictest water treatment standards for water recycling and reuse in the United States. Fluence’s MABR demonstration plant was installed at the Codiga Resource Recovery Center (CR2C) in Stanford, California, in January 2018 for the purpose of third-party evaluation. The testing parameters included criteria to evaluate reliable enhanced nutrient removal in the form of Total Nitrogen, which is increasingly important across the United States and difficult and costly to achieve through conventional wastewater treatment.

  4. Improving Clinical Trials For Rare Diseases Of The Central Nervous System

    Traditionally hard-to-treat neurological diseases – including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s – which were once considered to be common, are being reclassified as a collection of rare diseases based on genetic markers. This article shares new strategies for enrolling patients and outlines the challenge of measuring the efficacy of the experimental treatment and determining whether it’s producing the desired effect.

  5. Reliable Bar Screen Designs For Worst-Case Scenarios

    By their very nature, wastewater bar screens are intended to operate under some pretty tough conditions. When a storm surge hits, however, both the severity of conditions and the criticality of results ratchet up several notches.With heavy storms seeming to occur more frequently and with greater intensity, here are multiple points to consider while reviewing mechanical bar screen performance.

  6. Bioprocess Facility Design — Layout Rules And Configurations

    Expansions and renovations to existing biological facilities, and construction of new facilities, provide a unique opportunity to rethink basic design strategies and use new technologies to build a better facility that will improve compliance. This article is the third in a six-part series on how single-use systems are changing the modern biotechnology facility and process design paradigm.

  7. The Future Of Automation And Digital Transformation In Late Phase Research

    It’s been nearly two decades since Electronic Data Capture (EDC) technology was introduced into clinical trials – one of the first significant steps in automating the trial process. Now, with the availability of robotic process automation (RPA), cognitive analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI), it’s time to press on with further digitalisation of clinical development.

  8. Physician Communication: Removing Hassles For On-Call Providers And The Clinicians Trying To Reach Them

    When you need to communicate, there’s no substitute for a true clinical communication and collaboration solution.

  9. Automate Your Training Regimen To Improve Performance

    The key to high production and efficiency is automation. But automation can also be used to optimize training to enable continuous learning and reinforce safety knowledge and concepts on every shift.
