Things Scientists Say...

Science is the study of the world using collected knowledge, observation, and experimentation. Those in the sciences are generally known for being quite serious, dare I say, dull. However, that is not always the chase. Take for example Albert Einstein, unquestionably one of the most brilliant minds to ever inhabit the earth, but also a wit and sense of humor maybe equally as impressive. In this blog, I’d like to share some funny Einstein quotes as well as quotes from other brilliant minds. Enjoy!

Visualizing Viscosity

One of the challenges of creating monoclonal antibody (mAb) injectable drugs is optimizing formulation. A good formulation has to have a high concentration of stable mAb’s for high efficacy. There are a variety of factors that can affect stability of these mAb’s, temperature, shear forces, pH, and even concentration. When proteins become, unstable and denature they can increase the viscosity of your formulation. Using a simple modified parallel plate demonstration, we can visualize why denatured proteins increase viscosity.

Vape Pens & "High" Viscosity

As marijuana use becomes more mainstream, the use of vaporizer pens or vape pens as a delivery system for THC is steadily increasing in popularity. Vape pens are not your classic bongs as seen in some old school Cheech and Chong movies, but are in fact a high-tech device; a high-tech device where precision and accuracy are critical to performance.

Viscosity & 3D PRINTING, TASTY 3D PRINTING!

That's right! You can 3D-print food. This presents a new and very interesting perspective in cooking with opportunities to modify the structure of the goods we eat. Icing, syrups, honey, nutella, dough... there are few limitations and some challenges to this process.
