 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...

Gene Expression Reagents Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Gene expression is a process that results in the synthesis of a functional gene product with the help of the information coded on genes. These products usually are proteins with respect to coding genes but in case of non-coding genes such as tRNA (transfer RNA), or RNA (ribosomal RNA), the functional product is a functional RNA. The process of gene expression is significant in both prokaryotes (bacteria) and eukaryotes (multicellular organisms) in order to ensure the generation of macromoleular machinery for their life. Gene expression comprises transcription and translation processes....

Rubella or German measles is a contagious and acute viral infection caused by the rubella virus. Generally, rubella infection occurs most often in young adults and children. While the rubella infection is typically mild in children, this disease has serious consequences in pregnant women causing congenital defects and fetal death. Some of the diagnostic testing techniques usually adopted for the diagnosis of rubella are as follows: Clinical evaluation Serological testing Immunoassays Monoclonal antibodies Latex slide agglutination test Flow cytometry...
