Coding and Vision: Keys to Traceability

In order to complement technological advances, direct part marking and machine vision have continuously evolved to satisfy consumer demands and industry regulations. This article highlights the capabilities and importance of coding, marking and vision and how, as a combined force, they ensure complete product traceability within both traditional manufacturing and, more recently, in the logistics arena.

THE RISE OF TRACEABILITY

As consumer demands continue to spiral upwards, and with a blanket of stringent legislation and regulations covering all areas of manufacturing, the need for a product to be traced from ‘cradle to grave’ has been of paramount importance for some time. This not only appeases the regulators, but delights the end users who would receive their products, supplied as per the agreed requirements.

Before long, the buzzwords of ‘coding’ and ‘traceability’were on everyone’s lips, and the increase in machine vision usage became...

Stability Testing and Forced Degradation Stress Tests - Proactive Risk Management

Whereas the durability of many consumables, have a strong tendency to decrease, stability is and remains a crucial factor for pharmaceuticals. That is why the identification and elimination of factors, which put long-term stability at risk, is central during development – and an important requirement concerning the product’s quality.

Microalgae Culture Using the DASGIP® PBR4 Module for Illumination with a New Brunswick™ CelliGen® 310 Stirred-tank Bioreactor

Eppendorf

The number of bioprocess applications for microalgae has increased in recent years, particularly in the fi eld of biofuel production. The combination of the New Brunswick CelliGen 310 stirred-tank bioreactor and the DASGIP LED Illumination System creates a bioreactor setup which is capable of supporting high density microalgal growth. Using the stand-alone Eppendorf DASGIP PBR4 Module, LED illumination spectra and intensities can be controlled for optimal support of all types of chlorophylls and carotenoids. For this study in which high density culture of up to 1.5 x 107 cells/mL was achieved, the unicellular freshwater alga, Dunaliella tertiolecta, was used.
