Role of Thermoelectrics in Energy Harvesting

Without realizing it, you likely come across examples of energy harvesting regularly. For instance, wind turbines convert wind into usable energy. Solar panels convert sunlight into energy. Hydroelectric dams make use of converting flowing water into energy. Other sources of energy harvesting include mechanical displacement and vibration.

Thermoelectric Coolers are Advancing the PCR Process

The Ebola virus seems to be screaming from the headlines and is on everyone’s minds lately. The human death toll in Western Africa is tragic and each day’s news stories bring greater fears of it spreading. You may have heard about new disease detection techniques related to the Ebola virus and possibly even DNA amplification and cloning. What is not commonly known is the role thermoelectric coolers play in these headline-grabbing medical stories. Today’s blog provides a little background into biomedical technology, in particular, the process of polymerase chain reaction (PCR). II-VI Marlow supports this technology through the development and production of thermocycling products.

PCR and the Role of Thermoelectrics in Temperature Cycling

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a technology in molecular biology used to amplify a single copy, or a few copies, of a piece of DNA across several orders of magnitude, generating thousands to millions of copies of a particular DNA sequence.

Thermoelectrics Keep Your Fireplace Running!

2016’s harsh winter left many of us without power for extended periods of time. Power outages went from bad to worse for those who have fireplaces that rely on electricity to ignite.

Fortunately, there are alternative energy sources, such as thermoelectric power, that can generate electricity. II-VI Marlow’s Thermoelectric Generators  are a simple, cost- effective alternative to electric, battery or solar power.
