Analysis methods are only capable of clearly detecting fakes when non-contemporary materials are detected in artefacts.
The addition of fluoride to drinking water or toothpaste is widespread and is mainly used for dental health and as a preventative measure against bone diseases. However, an excessively high concentration of fluoride can lead to health problems.
BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing is presenting various reference materials at the analytica fair (Hall A3, Stand 241). Certified reference materials are used to calibrate analytical processes and are the key to reliable and accurate chemical analysis results.
BAM’s two exhibits at the Hanover Fair (from 7 to 11 April 2014) demonstrate how cracks in steel can be detected and monitored quickly, easily and inexpensively, and to what extent steel is deformed by high dynamic loads.
This year's DIN Innovation Award has been granted to Dr.-Ing. Fabian Grasse and Dipl.-Ing. Malte Zur. The two engineers are founders of Grasse Zur Consultants (GZI), a young start-up company, founded with the help of BAM.
KorroPad is the name given to a new rapid colour test developed at BAM that enables stainless steel surfaces to be tested inexpensively and rapidly and, most importantly, also by non-specialists. In this way, for example, handicraft businesses can protect themselves against costly warranty claims.
Dr. Oliver Hahn of BAM was appointed Professor of "Scientific Materials Analysis Focussing on Manuscripts" at the University of Hamburg on 1 May 2014. He is one of the first scientists who will teach at a humanity faculty.
Health problems have been repeatedly reported in connection with laser printers for several years. Measurements show that many printer models emit various amounts of volatile organic compounds and ultrafine particles (smaller than 0.1 µm).
The BAM has redesigned the Dangerous Goods Quickinfo Service in its Dangerous Goods Database. The homepage has improved in terms of transparency, and the data obtained in the detailed results for different transport modes are more comparable.
