The August Issue of American Laboratory Featuring Environmental Testing, Automated Scanning Electron Microscopy, and Small-Scale Vane Rheometry Is Now Available

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - American Laboratory, a leading publication for the laboratory industry, announced today the August 2011 issue is now available. Focused on key areas in the laboratory industry, this issue's top articles include:

  • While increasingly sophisticated technologies have been developed to detect and treat human health, we need to proactively apply similar technologies and a health-focused mindset toward taking care of our planet, according to "Environmental Testing: Paving the Path Toward a Healthier Earth."

  • "A System Approach to Automated Scanning Electron Microscopy" describes an integrated, solution-driven approach to scanning electron microscope technology. This represents a different way of thinking about SEM performance and has fostered a "system" approach to SEM design.

  • Vane-in-cylinder rheology is useful for testing small amounts of materials in a well-defined geometry, as explained in "Small-Scale Vane Rheometry." The method gives meaningful data for materials that may exhibit slip and for those that may yield.

"We continue to see increased demand for our content that is available each month in the print issue, and electronically at www.americanlaboratory.com and www.labcompare.com," said Rob Sweeney, Publisher at American Laboratory. "Whether a scientist elects to receive a print copy or a digital copy, we want to serve the market with the highest-quality content that will help scientists make key purchasing decisions when looking for products for their laboratories."
