 Traditionally, rechargeable batteries have been used as energy dense products and the other devices based on capacitors have been used as power dense products. There are more-power-dense versions of the favourite rechargeable batteries - lithium-ion with 70% or so of the rechargeable battery market in 2023. Unfortunately, power dense rechargeable batteries surrender a lot of energy density. It is therefore helpful that more and more energy dense supercapacitors and variants are becoming available, some even matching lead acid batteries and yet retaining excellent power density. This convergence of properties has led to the widespread combination of the two in parallel, particularly in power applications. Battery/supercapacitor combinations approach the performance of an ideal...

Factor Assays Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Factor assays are mainly undertaken during prolongation of the Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT) and Partial Thromboplastin Time (PTT) resulting in the deficiency of one or more clotting proteins. Overall a basic general principle is followed by all functional clotting factor assays that involves specific plotting/clotting time from either PTT or APTT depending on which factor it’s being assayed against sample dilution. A quantitative assay of an individual clotting factor is essential to identify inherited deficiency and to monitor replacement therapy and sometimes helps...

PH Meters Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis, And Forecasts 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
pH meters are required to detect the alkali content in water and verify its purity. These meters are most commonly required at water purification plants to check water purity and determine whether it is suitable for drinking or not. The rising population has led to the growing demand for portable pH meters for home use. Water contamination incidences and water-related diseases have prompted people to use pH meters in their homes to confirm water purity before its usage. The pH meters market is expected to witness stupendous growth in the near future due to the rising concerns of...
