 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.

Blood Gas And Electrolyte Analyzers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Blood gas and electrolyte (or Blood gas analyzer) analyzers are widely used in blood testing. Blood gas analyzer measures concentration of hydrogen ions which is a measure of acidity, partial pressure of carbon dioxide to access efficiency of its elimination from the body, and partial pressure of oxygen to access the efficiency in oxygen absorption. It also measures electrolyte in the blood such as sodium, calcium, chloride ions and bicarbonate ions. The concentration of oxygen, carbon dioxide and other electrolytes along with pH are indicators for diabetes, hemorrhage, drug overdose,...
