New Ceramic Coating, Enhanced Rice and Bread Tastes Captivate Consumers

leave a comment »

SEOUL, South Korea /PRNewswire/ — Cooking equipment, laden with taste and health, is expected to captivate consumers with the new life trend.

Various tools have been developed to cook rice, the staple food of Asian culture, where the most common cookware is the rice cooker. The technology to improve the taste of rice and cuisine with electric rice cookers while not destroying nutrients has been developed centering on Japan, China, and Korea, but the reproduction of the taste of rice and cuisine made in a cauldron still remains to be solved.

SAMKWANG Co., Ltd., located in Korea, is a company which specializes in developing and producing NEOSTONE ceramic coating, which is environment-friendly and has excellent durability and non-stickiness, and supplies it worldwide to be applied to various cooking equipment, ovens, and baking tools. It has now developed the ceramic coating for electric rice cookers and applied it to the internal pot of the electric rice cooker so that it can now supply products with healthy quality and great rice taste.

With the team working with Dong-Seok Lee, the professor of clinical pathology at the School of Biomedical Science and Engineering, Inje University, the rice made in the inner pot to which the already widely used PTFE coating had been applied and the rice made in the inner pot to which the newly developed ceramic coating had been applied have been comparatively analyzed for the taste, and it has been scientifically analyzed that the taste of the rice made in the inner pot to which the newly developed ceramic coating was better. Moreover, it has been analyzed that the taste of bread was also superior than the existing PTFE coating when applied to the bread machine.

The new type of ceramic coating is superior to the existing PTFE coating in terms of heat transfer by far-infrared radiant heat and hydration by vapor, so that it helps to facilitate the enzyme activity such as amylase, protease, lipase, or nuclease in rice or flour and thus expedites the saccharification of carbohydrates (starch) physio-chemically, and also expedites the additional saccharification by enzymes in the human mouth. Moreover, the transformations of protein into peptide (the smallest unit of protein, taste component), of fat into fatty acid (hydrolysis of fat), and of nucleic acid into nucleotide (constituent unit of nucleic acid, taste-reinforcing substance) are also expedited so that the sweetness, savoriness, and spiciness are overall well in harmony after cooking or baking, showing that the taste compound has been boosted by about 2 times (200%) for rice and about 1.3 times (130%) for bread.

Such a study result suggests that the rice made with the rice cooker applied with the new type of ceramic coatings can lead to better digestion by enzymes while being chewed in the mouth, so that the consumers can feel the superior rice taste.

SAMKWANG Co., Ltd. is exporting worldwide with the excellent ceramic coatings manufacturing technology, and continues the research and development for new ceramic coating. As a result, it is growing to be a company that changes the environment-friendly and healthy kitchen culture to help the consumers lead a safe and tasty life.

Enhancing the Quality of Dense Breast Imaging Solutions Spurs Growth Opportunities for the US Market

leave a comment »

-Legislation mandating breast density reporting boosts demand for supplemental screening, finds Frost & Sullivan

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.  /PRNewswire/ — Nearly one in eight women in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer, making it the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second largest cause of death among American women. This vast patient pool is encouraging manufacturers of breast imaging systems to develop novel imaging technologies such as automated breast ultrasound and tomography, elastography, thermography and optical imaging systems.

Frost & Sullivan
Frost & Sullivan

Analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the US Breast Imaging Systems Market (http://frost.ly/8b), finds the market earned revenues of $1.24 billion in 2014 and estimates this to reach $1.58 billion in 2019, at a compound annual growth rate of 5 percent.

For complimentary access to more information on this research, please visit: http://frost.ly/8c.

Many of the innovations, such as digital breast tomosynthesis and automated breast ultrasound, are aimed at the early detection of cancer in dense breast patients. Almost 45 to 50 percent of the women above the age of 40 have dense breasts, putting them at higher risk for cancer. Acknowledging this, 24 states in the U.S. introduced a legislation requiring patients with dense breast to be notified of the physiology. This resulted in a wider market for supplemental breast cancer screening exams and equipment.

“Screening programs have significantly helped decrease cancer-related mortality rates over the past 10 years,” said Frost & Sullivan Transformational Health Consultant Poornima Srinivasan. “However, the increase in the number of women screened has only benefitted the X-ray mammography and ultrasound systems segments. The higher-end imaging systems have to prove their value to the medical community before they can be adopted on a large scale.”

Some of the more popular technologies are likely be aiding the cost-effective upgrades of 2-D systems to tomosynthesis and automated breast ultrasound. Multi-modality cancer detection protocols will continue to be sought-after and mammography is expected to remain the gold standard of breast imaging technologies.

“Meanwhile, the roll out of new technologies has triggered a wave of mergers and acquisitions, as spiraling R&D costs and the need for expertise make it necessary for companies to collaborate,” observed Srinivasan. “Participants are also hopeful of additional government support to help stimulate market growth in the short term.”

Frost & Sullivan

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Strategic Analysis of the Global Analytical Microscopes Market(http://www.frost.com/k00a), finds that the market earned revenues of $3.83 billion in 2015 and expects this to reach $5.44 billion in 2020, at a compound annual growth rate of 7.3 percent.

For complimentary access to more information on this research, please visit: http://frost.ly/94

Operators of conventional microscopes currently need expert training on illumination, contrast and digital imaging techniques to acquire optimal images. Therefore, there is a large market for highly advanced analytical microscopes that can significantly lower the complexity of the testing process and provide immediate access to the test results.

“New opportunities will emerge from digital microscopy and scanning electron microscopy,” observed Frost & Sullivan Measurement & Instrumentation Industry Analyst Mariano Kimbara. “In some cases, OEMs will have to innovate to offer a blend of optical, digital and scanning electron microscopes.”

Other key end-user requirements include a high degree of software automated workflow, modularity and flexibility to customize optical solutions. There is also a demand for systems that aid the measurement of metal parts and large-sized components using specific software modules.

OEMs’ primary focus will be on improving the capabilities and processing power of their products. Furthermore, there is a strong need to create software that will be interoperable with the hardware of various manufacturers, prompting a shift in product development from purely hardware-based systems to systems that are increasingly incorporating software.

Other important technology trends include the miniaturization of components, which translates to a requirement for microscopes that can make visible nano-level details. Expectedly, there are considerable opportunities in the end-user markets of life sciences and automotive.

“Companies are looking to make the most of the enthusiastic customer buying behavior by selling optical components separately,” noted Kimbara. “The most successful companies will be the ones that can deliver customized microscopy solutions and superior customer support to meet a variety of end-user needs.”

ABI Research Expects Third Party/Neutral Hosts to Rule $9.5 Billion In-Building Wireless Market

leave a comment »

AUSTIN, Texas /PRNewswire/ — While carrier-led deployments account for more than 47% of in-building wireless deployments today and vendor-led deployments sit close to only 10%, third-party/neutral hosts control close to 43% of overall market deployment revenue and are set to grow that share to over 54% by 2020. ABI Research, the leader in transformative technology innovation market intelligence, anticipates that the industry will see a larger concentration of neutral hosts funding enterprise projects in the years ahead.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20151014/276887LOGO

“Commercial property owners, such as real-estate companies or enterprises, are taking more responsibility for in-building wireless systems and provisioning their own buildings,” says Nick Marshall, Research Director at ABI Research. “Subscribers and employees expect wireless coverage and capacity the same as they expect running water or electricity from a building. In-building wireless is increasingly viewed as business-critical and is becoming a major marketing tool for building and venue owners.”

As carriers transfer assets to neutral host companies, such as Crown Castle, carrier-led ownership will decline worldwide, with tower companies taking on the bulk of the in-building wireless business. ABI Research forecasts that carrier-led deployment share will drop to less than 29% by 2020, with third-party/neutral host share increasing to hold a majority share and venue-led to 17%. “Enterprises are funding more in-building wireless projects on their own, as they see the associated benefits, including increased employee productivity, customer satisfaction, and higher property and lease revenues,” continues Marshall.

Specifically in regards to a venue-led model, benefits to the enterprise include complete control of the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) network, the ability to customize the DAS network, and the rights to engage with a third-party/neutral host that will operate, manage, monitor, and repair the DAS network as needed. Challenges will occur however, and venues can expect to work to overcome several obstacles including capital constraints and limited resources.

“Since in-building wireless is often outside the core skillset of the venue’s IT staff, the venue will often engage with a third-party or system integrator to design, build, operate, and maintain the DAS,” concludes Marshall. “Ultimately, the requirements of the individual venue have a major influence on the final design of the system—whether it is carrier-led, third-party/neutral host-led, or venue-led.”
