Roche and its subsidiary TIB Molbiol have developed a series of tests for the detection of the monkeypox virus, the Switzerland-based pharmaceutical company announced.
The monkeypox virus is a close relative of the smallpox virus, belonging to orthpoxviridae in the poxviridae family.
The modular virus detection tool, called LightMix, includes three orthpoxvirus detection kits with different functions, Roche said in a statement. The first kit detects orthpoxvirus; The second kit tests only for monkeypox virus (west and Central African branches); The third kit contains the main functions of the first two kits, showing specific information on the presence of the monkeypox virus (west and Central African branches) as well as the detection of orpoxvirus.
Thomas Schinek, a Roche executive, said the new test could detect monkeypox and help track its spread. Such diagnostic tools are critical for addressing and ultimately managing emerging public health challenges, as they advance responses such as tracking efforts and treatment strategies.
The monkeypox virus was first identified in 1958 in a group of monkeys used for research when the animals developed a "pox-like" infection, hence the name. Since May, several non-endemic countries have reported human cases of the monkeypox virus, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Portugal, Spain, and Italy.
Affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk foaming machine ,cement foaming machine are still very uncertain.
Cement foaming machine needs auxiliary test machine to help achieve better foaming effect in construction application. Cement foaming agent is a chemical admixture, which is added to cement. Compensate for shrinkage and tension of steel bars to produce prestress and to fully fill cement gaps.
According to the construction requirements and the quality requirements for foamed cement, we believe that the following requirements are put forward for the foaming agent:
1. The amount of foaming, the actual amount of foaming is not only a physical indicator, but also a cost indicator, if the amount of foaming is smaller, but the price is lower.
2. Foam strength is a comprehensive index of the collapse degree, shrinkage degree and foam stabilization time of foamed cement products.
3. Foam pore size and uniformity: The foam pore size and uniformity are the reliable guarantee for the strength index and thermal insulation index of the finished product. Only products with ideal pore size can be regarded as good products.
4. The purity of the foaming agent and the cleanliness of the foaming agent play a suitable and protective role for more and more sophisticated equipment. Large-scale continuous operation equipment should minimize the failure rate in its operation during operation, otherwise, It will seriously affect the quality of the project and the progress of the project. At the same time, too many impurities will affect the hydration reaction of the cement itself, resulting in a decrease in quality.
5. Non-corrosive, requires foaming agent, no corrosive pollution to the equipment environment, and has environmental protection performance.
6. Persistence of foam: This indicator has been highly demanded by people in the past. Some people pursue the longer the duration of the foam, the better. In fact, it is not necessary to pursue too long a stable foam time. We believe that the foam emitted by the foaming agent is Within the scope of application, its duration only needs to exceed the initial setting period of the cement product, because the existence of foam is meaningless when the product enters the initial setting period, and the ideal stabilization time exceeds 24 hours, which can meet various construction requirements.

The Free Trade Agreement between India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has come into force on.
The UAE is the gateway to the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa, said Subramaniam, a senior official at India's Ministry of Commerce and Industry. The agreement will help boost bilateral trade in goods from $60 billion a year now to $100 billion a year within five years.
On 18 February 2022, India and the United Arab Emirates signed the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement. With the entry into force of the agreement, 90 percent of Indian goods and 65 percent of UAE goods will enjoy tariff-free market access.
Apart from its FTA with the UAE, India is also pursuing FTAs with Australia, the UK, Canada, Israel, the European Union, and the Gulf Cooperation Council.
Influenced by international situations, the supply and prices of many foaming machine ,cement foaming machine are still very uncertain.
