Optical Instruments and Lenses Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
The enhancement of an image is characterized by optical instruments and lenses for studying the details of the subject as well as characteristics of light. The first and foremost optical instruments were the telescopes and microscopes, used for magnifying the images of the distant objects and smaller tiny objects respectively. During Galilean era these instruments evolved and found its application in other areas too like electromagnetic spectrum. The optical instruments and lenses form a part of our daily life depicting its presence in commonly used devices like mobiles and...
B-Type Natriuretic Peptide Testing Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
B-type natriuretic peptides, also called, brain natriuretic peptide, is a 32-amino acid (AA) polypeptide, which is produced by ventricles of the heart, as a reflex action to over-stretching of cardiac muscles cells. The generation of BNP is controlled by calcium ions. BNP and ANP (atrial natriuretic peptide) are working similarly and the physiological action of both is similar. The important function of ANP and BNP is to decrease the systemic vascular resistance, which leads to decrease of blood volume, thus results in decrease in blood pressure and increase in cardiac output. BNP...
