Lab NewsLab News A Newly Designed Material Converts Waste Heat into Electricity Scientists have noticed that an unimaginable amount of the world’s energy is lost in the form of waste heat. Be it gas-powered cars or huge industries, the heat lost in these instances can actually be converted into electricity. Now, scientists have achieved an initial breakthrough in designing a material with low heat conductivity, helping them achieve this feat. Read More The Future of Clinical Trials is Digital Simulation Participants who willingly take part in a clinical research can be hard to find. Recently, researchers have been able to design simulated participants by feeding patient characteristics and attributes, and were able to yield the same results as 3 previous studies. This raises a question on the future of clinical trials. Read More Mesobot – Revealing the Underwater MysteriesThe “twilight zone” is home to various creatures like krill and jellyfish. These creatures play an important role in bringing carbon from the surface of the water and trapping them beneath the tides. Observing the impact of these creatures can be difficult hence, the Mesobot – an underwater robot – is being used to track their movement for 24 hours without human intervention.Read More Blog of the MonthBlog of the Month An air displacement micropipette is one of the most popular liquid handling instruments.
