pharmaceutical company that focuses on a unique and improved delivery of therapeutic molecules or nutritional supplements using its Eligen®
These molecules and compounds could be currently available or in development. Such molecules are usually delivered by injection; in many cases, their benefits are limited due to poor bioavailability, slow on-set of action or variable absorption. The Eligen® Technology can be applied to the oral route of admi- nistration as well as other delivery pathways, such as buccal, rectal, inhalation, intra-vaginal or transder- mal.
nSol AS has patented a novel, prototype thin film photovoltaic cell design based on nano-
crystal technology. The basic cell concept has been demonstrated, and it is the objective of this research and development project to systematically refine this PV cell technology to achieve a cell efficiency of 20% or greater. EnSol aims to construct a world class thin film deposition facility in Norway, based on experience gained working in collaboration with the Condensed Matter Physics group at the University of Leicester (UK), during the production of prototype cells.
vonik Degussa GmbH, Essen, Germany, and APT Europe GmbH, Woerth, Germany, have agreed
to cooperate in the manufacture and distribution of VESTAKEEP®
products. In the future, APT Europe will exclusively use VESTAKEEP® PEEK by Evonik as a
source material for the production of its semifinished APT PEEK products. http://www.evonik.com
UJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. was able to demonstrate the long term archivability of
Barium-Ferrite (BaFe) magnetic tape particle, with- standing realistic storage environment simulations and proving its reliability over more than a 30 year time period. The findings from the study have been documented in an official white paper issued by FU- JIFILM Corporation.
“These findings show that the BaFe particle is not only a reliable tape storage solution because of its capacity but also for its proven long term reliability,” said Peter Faulhaber, senior vice president of sales and marketing, FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. “We have seen dramatic increases in the volu- me of data generated, transferred and stored today which has driven the need for increased, reliable storage media. Moreover, the solution must be able to stand up to the test of time in order for it to be a true value to IT professionals and storage managers.”
To prove the long term reliability of its BaFe tape particle, Fujifilm used an accelerated environment evaluation (temperature 60° C (140° F), relative humidity 90%, 30 days) to confirm BaFe tape particle changes in demagnetization, friction coefficient and tape surface over time. In addition, a storage test in a polluted environment, known as a “Battelle experi- ment”, was performed. Through this series of testing, it was proven that the data storage of 30 years or more with BaFe tape particle is possible and that the tape can maintain its magnetic characteristics for long term storage. http://www.fujifilmusa.com/tapestorage
