BioD + Z-SC1 MINI: DOING WORK THAT MATTERS NOVEL BIOLOGIC PRODUCTS DERIVED FROM THE PLACENTAL TISSUES This is the sort of things that motivate us to continue with our innovation strategy. BioD is a company that is focused on making life better on earth. To properly achieve their mission, they need performing equipment that they can rely on, right on the spot. We are proud to announce that BioD will supply with DF8503 TableTop / UnderCounter freezer, also known as MINI to their clients for the storage of the products they produce. Check out BioD’s work on development and commercialization of novel biologic products derived from the placental tissues. We would like to thank BSI for making this happen.
Not many companies are successful when trying to blend the scientific and artistic worlds together. We believe arts in general give meaning to anyone's life. We also believe science should be a platform to make meaning. At Z-SC1 that's our reason to keep going. There is one company which we applaud for their continuous efforts to keep these two worlds blending: Nikon. One of our firsts posts in June 2014 presented amazing microscopic images and videos. The images were taking from that year's 'Small World Photomicrography Competition'. This is an international event held by Nikon since the year 1975. Since then, the competition has become a showcase for talented photomicrographers in diverse scientific disciplines. A photomicrograph is a technical document that can be of great significance to science or industry. But a good photomicrograph is also an image whose structure, color, composition, and content is an object of beauty, open to several levels of comprehension and appreciation. We want to share with you our favourite images from this year's contest. Among them, the 1st place which was awarded to Ralph Grimm from Queensland, Australia with his submission: Eye of a honey bee (Apis mellifera) covered in dandelion pollen (120x). We hope you enjoy!

It is definitely a paradox to have on the same weekend the Thanksgiving and the Black Friday celebrations. Actually, it goes all the way to ‘Cyber-Monday’. On the first, you are invited to be grateful for what you have. On the others you are encouraged to ‘get’ stuff. This paradox exists because we accept it. And there is nothing wrong if you decide to embrace both initiatives. We believe what makes the difference is the state of mind you are in when you decide to be grateful or when you decide to shop. First of all, we would like to say THANK YOU to all our customers, suppliers, partners, employees, friends and the whole community because we do what we do because of you. We cannot thank enough. For the Black Friday situation, we will be sharing interesting articles that talk about consumerism, consciousness and gratefulness. For those thinking about buying from us, we will offer Free Shipping on all orders today. We hope you enjoy this weekend. Have Fun! Z.
