What Oligos Mean for Medical Research

December 20, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Medical research is an expensive endeavor, and results can sometimes produce more questions than answers. Costs are also spread out over several months or years, the time it takes to conduct the test. It can be difficult to use live test subjects for a number of reasons, like the costs of having them come to the facility for testing. A synthetic nucleotide/polynucleotide can solve many of these challenges effectively.

Precise Testing

When a researcher wants to study how a disease reacts with certain chemicals, he or she needs a specific strand of DNA in bulk. This is far more efficient than waiting for live patients, especially in times of crisis when there is a growing demand for vaccines. Poly c, for instance, is known to interact with macrophages and dendritic cells. As a result, it’s widely used in research involving the human immune system.

Bulk Availability and Costs

Not only is it difficult to find patients that exhibit the symptoms scientists want to test for, it can be expensive to provide a facility to perform the testing. It’s far easier to use oligos that exhibit the traits one needs for the research. Even polymers can be too expensive, and time consuming to produce, to make research feasible in all but certain circumstances.

Quality oligos also make a big difference on expensive projects. Oligos orders are the cheapest aspect of a project, but impure oligos can cause a substandard reaction. Reducing costs means getting the experiment right the first time.

How GPU works in Aircrafts

Generally, most starter motors and generators operate on turbine engines that work alongwith 30 volts without causing any damage. The highest amount of amperage draw is felt at the moment when the starter is activated. The amperage figure could climb up to 1000 amps on certain gas turbine start up engines.

As the startup continues, requirements in terms of amperage drop down throughout the activation cycle. A battery would need to be in good state by this time in order to minimize a voltage drop as a considerable load is applied during the start up. Usually as a load is applied to a battery, the voltage would tend to drop if the load is increased. In order to effectively start turbines, the voltage drop would need to be kept to a minimum.

Lower battery voltage levels will exude a lesser amount of amperage. Certain starter motors might even pull batteries down to 15 volts at the first phase during the activation of start up. Most engines manufacturers would recommend a volt of around 28.5 at start if this is available in order to limit any voltage drop to a minimum.

In order to achieve this, external ground power units (GPU) are used. In this particular case, it can be beneficial to the turbine engine as 20% of the energy is sent to the starter motor which makes the start more rapid and generates less heat. This increases the turbine life.

How Age and Gender Impact Mobile Advertising

December 11, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Mobile marketing requires marketers to guess not only at a user’s intent, but where he or she may be located and what he or she may be doing as well. Mobile users are motivated buyers who are utilizing their phones to comparison shop and find new locations to shop and entertain themselves. Of course, interest and location are not the only factors in mobile marketing, and it’s important to know what qualities your audience may possess that would help you reach them more effectively.

The Age Effect

The more you know about your target market’s age group, the better your chances of marketing to them successfully on a mobile device. People under 30 generally tend to utilize their cell phones to comparison shop while they are on the go. That also means lots of location-based searches, allowing you to target on a hyper-local level. People over the 30 year old age group tend to have made their decisions before leaving the home, but you can still suggestion sell them on something cheaper or closer. You have to know how your age group will respond to your ads, and it may benefit you to run test groups for each segment.

The Gender Factor

Men and women are both using their smartphones to shop, but how they shop generally varies greatly by gender and individual. We are not to a point where we can pinpoint users, yet, but we can take some general knowledge on how each gender shops to try and increase conversions. As you evaluate your products, ask yourself if men or women are the most likely consumers for your product. You can even test your assumptions with social media, performing some quick searches about your product to see who is involved in the discussion.
