 Thin-film, DSC and organic PV are notoriously vulnerable to oxygen and water vapor; much more so than conventional crystalline silicon PV.  NanoMarkets believes that as these newer forms of solar panel technology become ever more pervasive, it is creating a growing opportunity to supply cost-effective encapsulation technology into the PV space.  
   
 Although, in the not-too-distant past, several firms have tried to exploit similar opportunities without success, NanoMarkets now believes that the time is right for PV encapsulation to lead to significant revenue generation for well-prepared companies and this report is designed to assist a variety of firms in preparing for the PV encapsulation opportunity.

Microbiology is a field of science dealing with study of microorganisms. One of the major methods for identification and characterization of micro organisms is the microbial culture method. In this method, a suitable growth medium is prepared which is a calculated combination of various growth nutrients. A sample containing micro organisms is then seeded to this growth medium to get an increased cell count. Various isolation methods are employed to obtain a pure culture of each of the micro organisms in the sample. These micro organisms are then tested for various properties such...
