VisualSpreadsheet V2.0 is an interactive particle-image-analysis software program that permits on-the-fly filtering during data acquisition for faster detection of particles of interest. The program works with the company’s FlowCAM automated particle-analysis system. The software enables operators to apply filter parameters during data acquisition to detect and identify particles and cells of interest immediately and in real time while a sample is running, rather than waiting until the entire sample has been processed before seeing any results. It is a useful tool for lab technicians, water-quality engineers, QA/QC managers and analysts.

The lifespan of components used in the Public Restroom Co.’s restroom buildings is a minimum of 50 years, according to the company. The foundation for each structure is an 8-inch bridge-grade, steel-reinforced concrete slab. The concrete in the slab is moisture-proof and oil- and stain-resistant for life. If moisture cannot be absorbed into the concrete, the odors of urine and other organics are washed away through hose-down cleaning. All of the following and more are vandal-resistant in these restrooms: toilet seats, partition doors, toilet-paper holders, hand dryers and soap dispensers.

Safety markings for stairways
Stairmaster 500-NG renovation treads for stairways are photoluminescent markings that install on the fronts of steps. When lights go out in a building, the markings on the front of the steps glow, and guide people going down the steps. The glow area recharges almost indefinitely with any natural or artificial light, according to the manufacturer. The treads can be applied to almost any steps, including concrete, metal and wood. The treads also provide an anti-slip surface to prevent slips and falls.
