Electrophoresis is a method used for separating molecules in research and clinical laboratories. Depending upon their electrical charge and size an electric current is passed through a medium that contains the mixture of molecules. Separation of the molecules takes place according to the kind of molecule, it size and electrical charge.
Calcium gluconate is a mineral supplement which is prepared by the neutralization of gluconic acid with lime or calcium carbonate. It is listed as one of the essential medicines on WHO’s list of essential medicine. Calcium gluconate is used to treat conditions arising from calcium deficiencies such as hypocalcaemia tetany, hypocalcemia related to hyperparathyroidism and hypocalcaemia due to rapid growth or pregnancy. Apart from being an active ingredient in medicines, calcium gluconate finds its application in various food products as a nutrient supplement. It is a used as a source of calcium, in a variety of food & beverage products, such as; milk, soft drinks, juices, bottled waters, dairy products, soy products, baked goods, and confectionery.
The market for traction batteries is rapidly growing. A traction battery or electric vehicle battery is a battery that is used to power the battery electric vehicle. Vehicle batteries are rechargeable in nature. Traction battery relates to all the batteries used to power electric vehicles. The rising application of these batteries in different form of vehicles including mobility scooter, a fork-lift truck and many more are driving the global traction batteries market.
Colloid or a colloidal system is defined as a chemical system composed of finely divided particles dispersed in a continuous medium. Hydrocolloids are those colloidal long chained polymeric systems which are composed of fine particles dispersed in water. Depending on the quantity of the medium namely water, these hydrocolloids exist as gels or as sols. These hydrocolloids find a variety of applications especially in food industry owing to their exceptional ability to modify the rheology of the system to which it is added. Besides, these also find application in pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry. As an ingredient in food and beverages, these may be used as thickening agents, gelling agents, emulsifying agents, stabilizing agents among other applications. Food hydrocolloids may be obtained from natural sources such as plants, animals, microbial sources or may be synthesized artificially. Global Food hydrocolloids market is slated to witness a steady growth during the forecast period.
Dry Ice is solid form of carbon dioxide. Solid carbon dioxide is characterized by phase change from solid state directly to gaseous state without undergoing change into liquid state with an increase in temperature. As such, it does not lead to any residue post the phase change and hence is rightly termed as Dry ice. Dry ice manufacturing process involves initially compressing and cooling gaseous carbon dioxide to yield liquid carbon dioxide. In the next step, this liquefied carbon dioxide is allowed to undergo expansion following which it is pressurised to yield solid carbon dioxide or dry ice. Dry ice is often used instead of traditional water based ice due to relatively lower temperature(-79 degrees) of dry ice as compared to that of water based ice at the same time it does not melt into a liquid form, rendering it free from waste generation. Moreover, dry ice is non-flammable and non-toxic as opposed to some of the other refrigerants used.
Contactless payment is the mode where in secure payment transactions are done using technologies such as bluetooth, infrared, radio frequency identification (RFID), and near field communication (NFC). Contactless payment takes almost one-tenth of the time taken by the traditional electronic transaction making it more hassle-free for the customers. The need to make payment more securely and the convenience to pay fast without having any cash or identity details is making contactless payment mode popular game changer. Initially, contactless cards were used in the form of travelling tickets only; it has evolved and is helping consumers to make payments for almost anything. Contactless payment has an upper limit to amount paid and number of transactions per day.
Stearic acid is also called octadecanoic acid, which is basically one of the most common long-chain fatty acids. Stearic acid has extensive applications in many fields, for instance, cosmetic industry, rubber industry, food industry, pharmaceutical industry and biomedical science industry. Although, stearic is generally derived from palm oil, it is also derived from others sources such as corn, which is a waxy solid that is almost insoluble in water. Since, stearic acid occurs in many animal and vegetable fats and oils. However, animal fat is richer than vegetable fat by 15%. One of the most popular uses of stearic acid is in the production of candles to harden the wax and strengthen the candle. Stearic acid is also commonly used in the production of soap. It give shampoos a pearly color and also helps to make harden soaps. Furthermore, preventing oxidization is another key use of stearic acid. It is also used to coat metal powders such as iron and aluminum, used in fireworks that allow them to be stored for longer period of time. It is also used in some metal polishes to prevent the oxidation, to produce magnesium stearate and rust that can occur on metal parts of tools.
Explosion is defined as an extreme increased in the energy of a system, which can be nuclear, mechanical or nuclear in an uncontrolled amount result in increasing in temperature and evacuation of gases. There are so many sources responsible for the explosions, some of them are increased pressure, nuclear reactions, leakage of gases, dust and others. In order to prevent these explosions, several types of prevention measures are being taken in to account at a time of designing products for electrical, mechanical, nuclear and chemical use and these devices/products are termed as explosion proof.
Weighing equipment are the instruments used to measure the weight of a product. Industrial weighing equipment is used to measure the weight of various products such as instruments, chemicals and machines in industries. Industrial weighing equipment is present everywhere in the industry from the initial stage that is raw materials stage to the final stage, distribution of finished products.
