BAM develops measurement methods for luminescent materials
Tiny luminous particles are being used in more and more products today: from smartphones to OLED televisions to car headlights. Precise knowledge of the luminosity is crucial for industry. The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) is developing reliable measurement methods ...
Faster and more robust than a PCR test
Fuels such as kerosene or diesel can be contaminated by fungi or bacteria. The microorganisms settle in the liquid itself, on the inner walls of tanks and pipes or in fuel filters and feed on carbon atoms. Since the fungi and bacteria multiply well in this environment, they can form a streaky ...
The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, BAM) and Analytik Jena AG have agreed to cooperate extensively in the research and development of optical spectrometry in the area of elemental analysis. The two parties signed a ...
Three more interlaboratory tests on safety of chemicals
The causes of accidents can be diverse, whether it is an explosion in a chemical plant or a fire on a dangerous goods freighter. Prevention starts in the laboratory where chemicals are tested for their hazardous properties. Safety experts, haulage contractors or traders must be able to rely on ...
The corrected and revised 2015 version of the German translation of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Manual of Tests and Criteria – 5th revised edition, New York and Geneva 2009, prepared by the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) is now available. ...
Grilling in enclosed areas using charcoal is dangerous. The glowing charcoal releases considerable amounts of toxic gases, notably carbon monoxide (CO). Even when windows, doors and the garage door are opened for “safety reasons”, fatal CO concentrations can build up. This risk is also present ...
A new analytical centrifuge is being used to test adhesive bonds, coatings and composites. BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing’s scientists had the idea that samples should no longer be clamped, but simply inserted. Simply inserting the specimen makes rapid loading possible. ...
Volatile mercury from historic mirrors
Ancient mirrors still exist which were made by applying mercury to a thin tin foil. Although their production was banned in 1886, owning one has never been prohibited. Over the years, the compound of tin and mercury (the so-called tin amalgam) corrodes or detaches from the glass, the reflection ...
Bayer MaterialScience and BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing develop shape memory polymer from thermoplastic polyurethane
A new thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) developed by Bayer MaterialScience together with the BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing in Berlin, Germany, shows that plastics can also have a memory. Parts made of such a plastic can be temporarily reshaped and fixed in this shape. ...
The difficult search for dangerous mycotoxins
Do you know how many moulds are in a slice of bread? And has it occured to you whether these moulds pose a danger? BAM's experts are carrying out research into this topic and have developed an analytical method to detect the toxic metabolic compounds of moulds. Moulds, and more than 300 species ...
