LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwired - August 01, 2014) - Advanced Solutions Life Sciences, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Solutions, Inc., is proud to announce the launch of the next generation in 3D printing: The BioAssemblyBot™ and TSIM™ Lab Quest tabletop workstation.
BioAssemblyBot (BAB) and TSIM Lab Quest is an integrated workstation that empowers Physicians, Researchers, Engineers, and Scientists to design, visualize, collaborate, simulate, and analyze 3D virtual models of complex tissue structures. Starting at $159,995 (USD), the patent pending innovation advances the current capability of 3D printing to also enable Biological Tissue Assembly (BTA), a key step in realizing functional biological structures for human purposes. Utilizing a six-axis robot arm, the BioAssemblyBot workstation provides "surgeon-like" precision in building 3D tissue structures. Up to ten independent delivery systems can be loaded in the workstation during a single print run, enhancing the range and scope of assembled structures. President and CEO, Michael Golway, P.E., said "Our Lab Quest workstation allows researchers and scientists to design and assemble tissue structures with a speed and fidelity, previously unattainable." He went on to say "We are able to treat Biology as an Information Technology with the BioAssemblyBot/TSIM innovation, and as a result we will realize the next stage of exponential growth in performance of fabricated biological tissue structures."
The Digital Prototyping workflow within TSIM (Tissue Structure Information Modeling) allows users to enhance the precision and functional specifications of any tissue structure design. Visual feedback, in terms of tissue structure integrity, deformity, profusion effectiveness, expected biological output, and fabrication time, are some of the benefits of using TSIM. TSIM also supports a comprehensive material data management system (DMS) which provides the ability to define, create, query, update, administer, and attach data attributes (e.g. cell type, viscosity, etc.) to objects within the model. TSIM then translates the precise 3D coordinates of the tissue structure model and attributes (e.g. cell layers, types, locations, etc.) to the BioAssemblyBot. "TSIM and BAB provide investigators and practitioners unparalleled capabilities to design and fabricate biological constructs that mimic natural human tissue," added Dr. Stuart Williams, Director, Bioficial Organs Program, University of Louisville.
James Hoying, PhD for the Cardiovascular Innovation Institute, says, "with TSIM, my team can minimize empirical efforts writing scripts and troubleshooting print-runs: I can create the desired cellular structure, manipulate, instruct the printer what material to be printed and the integrated system handles the rest, fabricating in real space the object I created in 3D computer space. This is a wonderful, enabling platform for my work."

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT.

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
