 This is the latest in NanoMarkets’ ongoing series of industry analysis reports on silver inks and pastes.  In this report we analyze how the changes within the applications for silver inks and pastes have impacted the business and what this means over the coming years. 
   
 On the positive side, the solar panel industry is reviving and is much more oriented toward crystalline silicon (c-Si) panels than before the great solar crash.  This is good news for the silver pastes business, because c-Si panels are major consumes of silver.  Silver inks and pastes suppliers also have some reason to be hopeful about the likelihood of large OLED lighting and displays panels finally being commercialized, since silver undoubtedly has a role to play in OLED electrodes....

Adhesion is one of the common problems affecting almost 55% to 90% patients followed by surgery. Adhesion is a band of scar tissue formed between organs and tissue after a surgery as a part of a normal healing process. However, when it connects wrong tissues into each other, adhesions may lead to severe clinical symptoms such as pelvic pain, intestinal blockage, infertility and loss of sensation depending on the location and size of the adhesions.  Adhesions are most common after surgeries such as abdominal surgery, thoracic surgery, gynaecological surgery and plastic surgery....
