Regardless the industry, if you are working with temperature-sensitive items, this webinar is for you. The food and beverage industry routinely handles perishable products and ingredients, while the biotech and healthcare sectors work with temperature-sensitive samples and specimens that can be irreversibly damaged through high heat or freezing temperatures. A series of activities and instruments are applied to maintain cold chain; preserve the integrity and viability of these items, right from production or harvest through to end-user consumption.

Whether you are directly involved in maintaining cold-chain or routinely handle temperature-controlled items, it is essential to understand the importance of cold storage and transport; temperature monitoring, as well as the need for maintaining indisputable traceability throughout the cold chain. Inadequate or sub-standard temperature monitoring can not only cause irreparable damage but also result in extensive delays, and losses in revenue.

Cole-Parmer has developed a range of innovative tools that can be leveraged for accurate and continuous cold chain monitoring. Prevent unwanted temperature deviations throughout the lifetime of products and gain peace of mind with precise and compliant temperature reports.

You will have the opportunity to submit questions to the panel; receive focused responses that address your query.

Coronavirus traces found in Massachusetts wastewater at levels far higher than expected
Friday, 10 April 2020 10:20

https://nypost.com/2020/04/09/coronavirus-traces-found-in-massachusetts-wastewater/

Coronavirus was detected in Massachusetts sewage at higher levels than expected, suggesting there are many more undiagnosed patients than previously known, according to a new study.

Researchers from biotech startup Biobot Analytics collected samples from a wastewater facility for an unnamed metropolitan area in late March, according to a report Tuesday on medRxiv.

Eric Alm, one of the authors of the study, which has not yet been peer reviewed, stressed that the public is not at risk of contracting the virus from particles in the wastewater, but they may have the potential to indicate how widespread the virus has become, Newsweek reported.

“Even if those viral particles are no longer active or capable of infecting humans, they may still carry genetic material that can be detected using an approach called PCR (polymerase chain reaction), which amplifies the genetic signal many orders of magnitude, creating billions of copies of the genome for each starting virus,” Alm told the outlet.

The researchers, along with a team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, analyzed the samples and found the number of coronavirus particles equated with 2,300 people being infected with the virus.

But at the time of tests, there were only 446 confirmed cases in the region, according to the study.

“It was interesting that our estimation was definitely higher than the number of confirmed cases in the area,” said Mariana Matus, CEO and co-founder of Biobot, according to Stat News.

The researchers shared their findings with local health officials, who said it was plausible there were hundreds of undetected cases.

“They could believe that [our] numbers could be correct and not out of the realm of possibility,” Matus told the outlet.

 
EPA Expands COVID-19 Disinfectant List, Adding Nearly 200 Additional Products
Monday, 16 March 2020 13:24

(Lenexa, Kan., March 16, 2020) – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is releasing an expanded list of EPA-registered disinfectant products that have qualified for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The list contains nearly 200 additional products—including 40 new products that went through the agency’s expedited review process. The agency also made key enhancements to the web-based list to improve its usefulness.

“During this pandemic, it’s important that people can easily find the information they’re looking for when choosing and using a surface disinfectant,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “With this expanded list, EPA is making sure Americans have greater access to as many effective and approved surface disinfectant products as possible and that they have the information at their fingertips to use them effectively.”

While disinfectant products on this list have not been tested specifically against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19, they are expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 because they have been tested and proven effective on either a harder-to-kill virus or against another human coronavirus similar to SARS-CoV-2.

The product list has also been updated to include the product’s active ingredient and the amount of time the surface should remain wet to be effective against the given pathogen.

To make the list more consumer friendly, information in the table is now sortable, searchable and printable, and can be easily viewed on a mobile device.

These additions make it easier for consumers to find surface disinfectants and instructions for using them effectively against SARS-CoV-2.

Beer waste saves Montana town $1 million on water treatment
Brewery waste can throw off the microbes that wastewater plants rely on to remove nitrogen and phosphorus. At least two communities in Montana are using it strategically to treat their water.

U.S. drinking water widely contaminated with 'forever chemicals': report
The contamination of U.S. drinking water with man-made "forever chemicals" is far worse than previously estimated with some of the highest levels found in Miami, Philadelphia and New Orleans, said a report on Wednesday by an environmental watchdog group.
