A range of topics are trending in the medical gases market of today, from homecare to portability of oxygen and the digitisation of medical gas delivery that increasingly underpins these growth areas. All of which present new considerations and challenges in safety, as EIGA members keenly explained at the association’s ...
A portable oxygen concentrator (POC) can help patients with respiratory disorders remain active. But with different technologies now available, which POC is best suited to meet both clinical and lifestyle needs? A new independent report sheds light on the choices, GCE’s Donald Oleforo explains.
This week marks one year since the biggest carbon dioxide (CO2) shortage of recent years erupted.
The Harris Products Group, a Lincoln Electric Company, is a global leader in metalworking products used in brazing, soldering, welding and cutting, and a dominant player in the manufacturing of gas pressure and flow control equipment used in the specialty, industrial, medical and bulk gas industries.
Cryotherapy, the act of exposing yourself to freezing conditions up to -230 degrees Fahrenheit for two to three minutes, is hot right now. Whole Body Cryotherapy, which achieves its Arctic chill through liquid nitrogen, is becoming increasingly popular in sports science, and has taken the method of ice baths to ...
Cryotherapy, also referred to as cold therapy, is a popular medical process that exposes the human body to sub-zero temperatures to as low as -230 degrees Fahrenheit for a session of roughly two to three minutes, to stimulate multiple physical and mental health benefits for the patient.
In the heart of Boston’s busy biomedical hub is the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Engineering in Medicine (MGH-CEM), a relatively young enterprise affiliated with some the area’s premier research institutions, including MGH, the Shriners Hospitals for Children, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The semiconductor industry is at the cusp of what is widely expected to be a rapid, multi-year expansion cycle powered by new end-markets and growth opportunities in revolutionary technology segments such as artificial intelligence (AI), Blockchain, machine learning, and autonomous vehicles.
When we think of Industry 4.0 and the wave of digitisation sweeping throughout industry and society alike, we tend to focus on the technology and operational change that it brings. The electronics gases business is largely overlooked and yet entirely intrinsic to this digital revolution.
The electronic specialty gas (ESG) market, while a small segment of the global gas market, is one of the most complex and least understood market segments of the electronic chemicals and materials landscape, write Mike Corbett and Andy Tuan, Linx Consulting.
Scientists in the US are concerned about helium supply and its impact on the progress of important cryogenic research projects and medical applications.
Messer, operational in the Americas since March, has six healthcare centers (with around 1,500 employees, including nurses and medical staff) in Colombia which, among other services, provides special medical gases for the treatment of diseases for children and infants.
Cryogenic-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is being hailed as a game-changer in medical research and increasing the capabilities of those trying to make breakthroughs in diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancers, HIV, Ebola, malaria, ‘flu, Zika, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
