.. Agilent Technologies launhces portable FTIR spectrometer Agilent Systems Inc. today introduced a next-generation cellular spectroscopy product that is ideal for on-site screening in a broad selection of applications, including advanced components, art, historical objects, geology, agriculture, composites, polymers and coatings. Thirty-five % lighter than its predecessor, the 4300 FTIR supplies the performance, mobility, consumer and flexibility comfort never before attained in a handheld FTIR device. ‘We believe this handheld FTIR is certainly a game-changer for the cellular FTIR field,’ stated Phil Binns, Agilent's vice president and managing director of Spectroscopy. ‘It’s not only portable and compact, but its advanced ergonomics make the operational system comfortable to use for long periods of time, leading to better-quality data.Mortality risk was found to become 40 % higher within two years after suffering from a fracture. Our findings claim that treating males having a high baseline threat of fracture with long-term androgen deprivation therapy may have serious adverse consequences, said senior writer Grace Lu-Yao, PhD, MPH, tumor epidemiologist at The Cancers Institute of NJ and professor of medicine at Robert Solid wood Johnson Medical College and of epidemiology at UMDNJ-School of Public Health. We anticipate the results of the study will prompt additional study of a patient's baseline-risk of fracture and skeletal problems to administering this course of therapy prior.
