“The acquisition of HighWire further deepens our commitment to the Academic/STM community, whom we were founded to serve back in 1970,” said Rahul Arora, CEO and Managing Director of MPS Limited. “We will further invest, build, and grow HighWire to advance global discovery, research, and innovation, which aligns with our overarching mission of Making Learning Smarter.”
“In the year that HighWire celebrates its 25th anniversary and MPS its 50th, we are excited to draw upon that wealth of knowledge to continue to shape the future of digital content,” said Tim Bacci, CEO of HighWire. “There is clear alignment with our core company values, and we are looking forward to leveraging the synergies as a result of our collective product suites that will prove beneficial to customers.”

Panasonic: Verifiering av den hämmande effekten hos nanoe™ X, en teknik som nyttjar fördelarna med hydroxylradikaler, på det nya coronaviruset (SARS-CoV-2)27.10.2020 18:30:00 CET | Pressmeddelande
Panasonic tillkännagav idag, i samarbete med den globala kontraktforskningsorganisationen Texcell*1, att Texcell har verifierat den hämmande effekten hos nanoe™ X, en teknik som nyttjar fördelarna med hydroxylradikaler, på det det nya coronaviruset (SARS-CoV-2). nanoe™ X, en joniserare som genererar ”atomiserade vattenpartiklar av nanostorlek”, har utvecklas av Panasonic. Detta är en elektrostatisk atomiseringsteknik som samlar upp osynlig fukt i luften och tillför högspänning för att producera ”hydroxylradikaler i vattnet”. Den avgörande faktorn är att det förekommer hydroxylradikaler i nanoe™ X. Hydroxylradikalerna kännetecknas av att ha en hög oxidation och reaktivitet. Panasonic har bedrivit forskning på denna teknik sedan 1997 och har verifierat dess effektivitet på olika områden, inklusive hämning av vissa patogena mikroorganismer (bakterier, svampar och virus) och allergener, och att den bryter ned PM 2.5-komponenter som har negativa effekter på människokroppen*2. 2012 genomförd
