As new applications for laboratory-based research and clinical diagnostics develop, new demands for more high-quality equipment comes with those advancements. A good example of a product of this constant evolution of laboratory equipment is the development of microtiter plates. What are microtiter plates and what role do they play in the laboratory? This article will shed light on some of their applications.


The Anatomy and History of Microtiter Plates

Microtiter plates (also known as multiwell plates) are flat plates that have rows of holes or "wells" in them designed to hold small amounts of different substances. Most microtiter plates are made of polymers such as polystyrene and polycarbonate, but glass and quartz microtiter plates are also used in certain laboratory procedures. Thicker microtiter plates have deeper wells, allowing them to
hold more substances.

Microtiter plates have been around for as early as the 1950s. The first versions were made of acrylic and featured six dozen wells neatly arranged in rows. Today, microtiter plates are available in various shapes, sizes, and materials to suit different kinds of laboratory procedures. Thanks to their simple but ingenious design, you can find microtiter plates in many laboratories in the world.

Microtiter Plates in the Lab

Microtiter plates are most often used to hold multiple samples of small amounts of substances. While the plates are almost always used for holding liquid substances, they can also be used to hold smaller solid particles (usually in powder form) or wet tissues. For holding larger samples, test tubes can be inserted into the wells, with the microtiter plates acting as test tube racks.

Because multiwell plates are extremely useful for holding liquid substances, they play a crucial role in researches related to multiple branches of chemistry and clinical diagnostics. For example, multiple blood samples can be stored in the plates so that different diagnostics tests can be performed without having to draw blood from a patient every single time.

Aside from being versatile, microtiter plates are also widely considered as more cost-efficient alternatives to having so many glass test tubes. Furthermore, polymer plates, in particular, are less likely to get damaged during storage. This is especially valuable for health facilities or science centers that want to cut down on costs.

The Future of Microtiter Plates

While the basic design of microtiter plates doesn't differ much from when they were first introduced, how they are actually used in the laboratory has evolved greatly. As new standards in healthcare call for faster, more accurate results, multiwell plates have become part of the trend for automation in laboratory testing and clinical procedures.

Automating certain laboratory procedures is mostly done to improve precision and speed up processes. Microtiter plates can be placed on staging platforms and positioned quickly using a series of high-precision linear stages and actuators. This can already be seen in many machines in which robotic pipettes are used to fill up microtiter plate wells in a matter of seconds.

For even more stability and precision, microtiter plates can be manufactured in specific dimensions to make them compatible with as many staging units as possible. They can even have features such as notches and contoured bottoms to make them less likely to get thrown off while being automatically transported.

With the help of thermal, optical, and other types of sensors, microtiter plates can also be used where samples have to be exposed to certain conditions or for specific durations. for example, once the sensors have detected that a threshold has been reached (such as temperature or amount of time), a motion system can then maneuver the microtiter plates away to prevent overexposure, which can ruin the results of the procedure.

There's no denying that microtiter plates will continue to be an integral part of laboratory research and clinical diagnostics. The real question is how much more ways can the humble plates be used by researchers along with new lab technologies that will be developed in the years to come.

Recruitment or hiring stage is the first and the foremost important stage for any business’s success. It plays a vital yet fundamental role in a business’s performance and production. The importance of smart recruitment is not at all hidden from the modern world’s business community. But still, it appears that modern business world lacks the technique to improve their hiring and recruitment strategies in a way that only potential applicants can be filtered or hired.

The real problem today is not understanding the importance of potential employees hiring or recruitment instead the dilemma of today’s business world is being unable to recruit the top potential applicants. In order to hire such potential and suitable employees you first, need to identify them correctly. Sometimes identifying the potential candidate is not also the problem but the retention becomes a problem.

This article will discuss in detail some techniques and filters that can be implemented right at the time of recruitment so that a business doesn’t have high employee turnover.

4 Filters That Can Make Your Hiring Smart

1. Small interview before the IQ test.

Every business entity today has a strategic recruitment system while the decision is made right at the last stage. Experts have observed that the initial stages of recruitment cost a company quite much while the later stages don’t and therefore a company should decide wisely if what candidate should
be made to go through those initial stages of recruitment and what not.

This is the first filter that needs to be implemented right before the IQ tests are conducted. Arrange a small interview where your agenda or objective remains focused on one point and that would be; “Who desperately needs this job”. Somebody who doesn’t have the need of your job who is ready to work for you or for anyone else for no good reason than such a non-serious
candidate should be barred from the initial stages of recruitment as well.

2. Objective oriented IQ test.

The business model should design IQ test with the help of its creative heads and employees. The focus for every department or hiring position should be different. For departments that require employees who are quick learners or technology freaks the IQ test should be designed in a way that these characteristics of the candidate may emerge out clearly.

In case the departmental needs depict that a candidate must have good reading or writing skills his IQ test should be designed that way. If the recruitment is for accounts or finance department then specific IQ tests should be designed to judge the proficiency of a candidate.

3. Candidate’s relevant interest.

Shortlist candidates who you find to have mutual professional objectives parallel to your business model. Those who seem to have relevant interests and professional qualities that can be beneficial for your business in a long run, give importance to them. Make a list of what you see in the candidate as positive for the position and whatever you find negative in the candidate.

4. Final interview.

This should have a filter of truthfulness. Tell the employee his maximum growth opportunity in the business setup. Just like the machines are measured with a margin of depreciation. Don’t expect everyone to stay with you forever honestly. Just as you don’t over use machines for quality production don’t over expect from a human resource asset.

So this is a truth filter that needs to be implemented right at this stage. All the monetary benefits should be discussed and ask his demotivating factors. What makes him feel bad about a company and what would motivate him other than money and fiscal arrangement.

In the industry of manufacturing, the concept of an assembly line production involves numerous steps, tasks, and processes arranged in a specific and strategic order to come up with the finished product in the most efficient manner possible.

Back in time at the beginning of the industrial age, assembly line production involved human workers at each stage of the production. However, with the invention of various machinery and equipment,
production became increasingly faster and involved less human effort.

Product Labeling Automation

Technology and Automation
In today’s modern world, there are perhaps very few, if any, large-scale manufacturing operations that
have not been automated by computer technology in one way or another—from consumer goods and
food packaging, to electronic gadgets and even cars.

Such automated assembly lines are composed of automated components such as conveyor systems
powered by highly efficient brushless DC motors. These parts help ensure continuous and reliable
motion or transport of the product through the different stages of production.

Product labeling
One of the most important steps along the assembly line production is labeling, and with the advent of conveyor system technology and automation, it is a process that has greatly improved.

The task of labeling finished products is vital because it visually signifies the product or company’s brand, which helps establish its market presence and aids in recall among consumers. Of course, it also provides the necessary information for consumers as to the contents or attributes of the product.

However, in a production line, labeling may be involved not only at the final stages but even during
assembly. Vehicles, for instance, may need certain parts to be labeled before they are put together or
installed. These labels serve as identification for parts replacement later on, or for control and tracking during the production process.

Benefits of product labeling automation

Volume. Including labeling tasks in the automated functions of assembly lines enables more products to be labeled in a shorter space of time. It keeps up with the overall fast pace of the entire production
schedule.

Accuracy. The speed with which assembly lines move requires utmost accuracy in applying the correct label and at the correct positions. With the help of computer technology, laser-guided optics, and other high-tech guides, ensuring accuracy in product labeling has been made easier.

Efficiency. The need to apply labels in different manners or in various configurations can be met with the help of a well-designed and automated labeling system.

Conveyor systems
The successful automation of product labeling tasks requires a good and reliable conveyor system that can withstand the tough demands of production, primarily in terms of speed and fast turnaround of products, round-the-clock operations, and sometimes even harsh environments.

Thus, a conveyor system needs to be designed and built with equally reliable and high-quality
components in order to ensure its smooth operation, and easy serviceability.

Investing in the automation of product labeling—as with the automation of any other aspects of
manufacturing and production—may require substantial capital investment, in the beginning, but
companies and business owners know this investment really pays off in the long run.

Production capacity is expanded, speed-to-market of products is enhanced, and product quality is better ensured. Operational costs are kept down with decreased requirement for human labor, and human error is consequently eliminated as well.

Choosing the right automation solution
It is important for manufacturing businesses and enterprises to find the right automation solutions for
their production needs. A good vendor would be able to design a custom solution rather than merely
rely on existing systems. The specific needs of a client should be assessed, and the relevant system can be built using the right equipment and technologies.

Sometimes lyf gets tough, for everyone. Relationships go sour, work gets too stressful, we feel overwhelmed by little things, loneliness creeps in or anxiety takes over. Those who are familiar with counseling, hesitate. Those who are not, struggle.

BetterLYF, formerly Dial My Angel, is the world’s first and only Instant Helpline for Stress and Anxiety and is here to help you cope. Now you can seek help over call or chat, and connect with a trained psychologist instantly. You can explore difficult feelings and learn how to manage negative thoughts or emotions, without having to reveal your identity. It is a safe space for you to talk it all out.

Their new feature, BetterLYF Wellness Exercises combine the power of interactive multimedia with scientifically tested therapy methods for fighting Stress & Anxiety. This innovative self-help program gives you practical tools for building self-confidence, healthy relationships, overcoming anxiety, and coping with stress.
betterlyf
So far, betterLYF counselors have had over 31,000 conversations worldwide. People seek their assistance with work stress, relationship conflicts, self-esteem, confidence, social anxiety, breakups, parenting, general stress and more. 96% of their clients have reported feeling much better and healthier after talking to them.

“I was struggling after my 3-year relationship ended. My counselor really helped me get over the past and move on. I’m so thankful to betterLYF for that!” says Shivani, a client who used the online chat feature on the website after her friend suggested it. Anurag, another client who was going through work stress says, “I didn't want to share it with family and friends and coincidently came to know about betterLYF. My counselor brought in a positive perspective!”

Founded by Delhi based entrepreneur Vikram Beri, betterLYF is the result of his belief that happiness is a fundamental need. He has made it his aim is to reach out to as many people as possible because seemingly small matters can turn into complicated negative thought patterns if left unattended. “I don’t know anyone who hasn’t struggled with day to day concerns, be it work, career or relationships. We are often reluctant in confiding with family and friends. While counseling can help, the hassle of finding a competent counselor, making appointments and traveling makes it all the more difficult. Well now, a better lyf is just a phone call away.”

The insight happened for Vikram when he went to drop his wife, a psychologist, to the clinic where she was interning. It was located in an obscure corner of an otherwise posh Delhi neighborhood as people don’t want to be seen or recognized when seeking counseling. He instantly knew that a platform that could provide assistance without having to deal with stigma and inconvenience was the need of the hour.

An engineer and MBA who has worked as a consultant with Deloitte in Chicago and subsequently run a manufacturing business, Vikram admits that he has had to go way beyond his training, knowledge and comfort zone to make this venture happen. But, he says he's never been this passionate about anything else.

Launched eight months ago with the conviction that emotional well-being is just as important as physical wellness, betterLYF has helped people discover happiness in over 500 cities across 34 countries. So the next time you or someone you know is feeling low, you know exactly where to better your lyf.

The current economic climate has made it difficult for many families to move to a bigger home, and has left some families struggling to pay their mortgages. Many choose to sell their house quickly in order to finance a move. In some cases, those struggling families have been forced to come up with creative solutions to their space, or money problems. One such option is transforming their garage into a second home or small studio - either for use themselves, or to let out to a lodger.

Turning a garage into a small studio home is not as difficult as it sounds, and can be a great way to re-claim unused space. If your garage currently holds boxes of junk, rather than a car, why not clean it out and make it suitable for use as a home?

Converting your garage into a fully functional home complete with a small kitchen and a bathroom may be an expensive proposition, and will require you to comply with a lot of building regulations.  Lower scale conversions, however, can be simple and inexpensive.

Image Credits: Wikimedia

If all you need is some extra space for your own family, then a converted garage can make a good home gym, children's play area, home "cinema" for entertaining, or a large lounge.  Depending on the configuration of your home, you could get a small door installed to link your garage to your home, or remove the garage doors and replace them with large oak doors. For an extra luxurious, country style appearance, you could choose oak doors in a barn or stable style, making your garage look like a country barn from the outside.

Once you've sorted out the doors, you will need to consider insulation, flooring, skirting boards, and wallpaper.  You may need to do some extensive work on the floor and the walls before the garage is ready to be decorated. Insulation can be a particularly troublesome issue - in some cases you can add the insulation without too much work, but in other cases you may need to dig up the floor and insulate the building as if it were a new build.

Things to Consider Before Renovating Your Garage

If you don't own your home, you will need to read your lease carefully before you do any work at all.  Even if you own your home, there may be something in your paperwork that restricts what you can do. If you have any doubts at all, get your agreement checked by a professional.

If you will be knocking down any walls, or changing the size of your garage, then you will need planning permission before you can start work. If all you're doing is painting the interior, then you shouldn't need planning permission, but once again it pays to be cautious. This is especially true if you live in a listed building.

In some areas, the local authority does not want people to convert designated parking spaces into buildings that are designed for another purpose. This is something that varies from local authority to local authority, so it's best to seek advice from an expert in your area.

If you're lucky enough to have a double garage, then you may want to convert one side of it, and leave the other side as a designated parking space.

BankBazaar’s platform leverages the OTP-based eKYC process for facilitating instant, paperless, and presence-less purchase of FDs, which will enable investors to evaluate, select and purchase FDs from Financial Institutions within minutes. The launch of the paperless FD follows the launch of paperless mutual funds earlier this year as well as a slew of paperless credit products including personal loans and credit cards.

FDs are now available completely online and paperless. Details such as the credit rating of the fixed deposit and the interest rates for various tenors are displayed for every product. Investors can select the preferred product and then choose the amount and tenor of investment. The platform then completes the authentication process.

This can be either Aadhaar-based through the OTP eKYC process or by uploading relevant documents such as the PAN card, cancelled cheque, etc. Once the authentication is complete, the payment is processed and the FD is created. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish and is very convenient.
