The scraped-surface freezer is at the core of ice cream production. Understanding and controlling this operation and the storage conditions of the final product are critical to creating the smooth and creamy treat consumers expect.

Technical Entity Trends: Improving Bioproduct Synthesis with Cell-Free Systems

Technical Entity Trends
Izabela Balicka
Biologists and bioengineers alike must understand the most basic unit of life — the cell. However, the complexity of various intracellular processes presents a challenge for researchers who try to discern biological processes and the engineers who want to make specific modifications to cells. Cell-free systems reduce these complex interactions by allowing researchers to study the reactions in the cell outside of the cell boundary.
