[en] The Protein Information Management System (PiMS) is described together with a discussion of how its features make it well suited to laboratories of all sizes. The techniques used in protein production and structural biology have been developing rapidly, but techniques for recording the laboratory information produced have not kept pace. One approach is the development of laboratory information-management systems (LIMS), which typically use a relational database schema to model and store results from a laboratory workflow. The underlying philosophy and implementation of the Protein Information Management System (PiMS), a LIMS development specifically targeted at the flexible and unpredictable workflows of protein-production research laboratories of all scales, is described. PiMS is a web-based Java application that uses either Postgres or Oracle as the underlying relational database-management system. PiMS is available under a free licence to all academic laboratories either for local installation or for use as a managed service
[en] The ITER cryoline (CL) system consists of a complex network of vacuum insulated multi and single process pipe (PP) lines distributed over three different areas at ITER site. The installation of these CLs in the Tokamak building is a very challenging and highly integrated task due to the presence of many equipment in their vicinity. Dedicated study has been performed to develop the realistic plan and to figure out constraints for complete realization of the CL network. This study includes the concept for assembly and installation of CLs within restricted premises of the Tokamak building, to fulfil the objective of generating technical inputs, defining the processes, construction sequence, tooling, resources and thorough understanding of one of the most challenging network of CLs in present time. The installation sequence for all the CLs inside Tokamak building has also been developed to respect the ITER Construction Master Schedule. The paper describes the ITER CL system, the assembly and installation plan developed considering the layout constraints and complexity arising from the integrated installation in the Tokamak building.

[en] Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is difficult to implement in the best of situations, but evidence is growing that the benefits are significant. The aims of this study are to analyze the current status of full PACS and establish successful installation standard of dental PACS. Materials and Methods were based on the investigation of current working status and installation standard of PACS, and observation of variable issues to installation of dental PACS. By September 30, 2004, full PACS implementations in their facilities were 88.1% in specialized general hospitals (37 installations out of total 42 hospitals), 59.8% in general hospitals (144 installations out of total 241 hospitals), 12.3% in medical hospitals (116 installations out of total 941 hospitals) and 3.6% in dental hospitals (4 installations out of total 110 hospitals). Only 4 university dental hospitals currently have installed and are operating full PACS. Major obstacle to wide spread of dental PACS is initial high investments. Clinical environments of dental PACS differed from medical situation. Because of characteristic dental practice, the initial investments for dental PACS are generally much greater than those of medical PACS. Also new economic crisis makes users scruple. The best way to overcome these limitations is to establish an economic installation standard for dental PACS. Also the clear technical communication between the customer and the supplier before both sides are committed to the obstacles are critical to its success.
[en] The article describes the main content and status of study on virtual assembly technique, points out the key of this technique, and conducts brief analysis respectively. In light of the status quo of mechanical equipment assembly in development of China's fast reactor technology, the significance of application of the virtual assembly technique in the fast reactor technology is analyzed, and goals for application are given.

[en] Continuous casting installation especially appreciated because steel can be poured in a more varied assortment. The flexibility of the system is not sufficient if the casting parameters are not properly adopted and adapted to the specific brand of steel. This paper presents some technical aspects relative to continuous casting of semi-finished products with ϕ270mm section. Graphical dependencies obtained in Excel and analytical equations of this allows to specialists from industry to adopt values for the addicted parameters according to the independent ones, already known.

[en] Spain is one of the few countries, where there is a common law regulating Nuclear and Radioactive Installations. The point of view of the Legislator in finding common aspects on both types of installation has conducted to have the same institutions to inspect and control them and to have the same insurance conditions. The size and importance of liability limits and the impact of severe contamination in case of a nuclear accident make the difference with the nuclear installations. (author)
[en] The detailed description of the tooling design for ATLAS barrel hadron module assembly is presented. As the Laboratory of Nuclear Problems is a manufacturing organization, the design of the tooling was adapted to the local manufactory technical possibility. Designing the tooling we are oriented on use of the large boring mill with 0 6m rotary table at LNP's machine shop as ASSEMBLY FLOOR and as BASEMENT for the tooling assembly. 3 refs., 5 figs
[en] The rapid development of industrial production and the availability of underground resources in our republic constantly increases the risk of radon in the building and facilities under construction. The article examines the possibilities of radon penetration into buildings and facilities, the amount of radon in the used building materials, the damage radon causes to human health and the ways of protection from it. Buildings and facilities are exposed to harmful radioactive influences from the environment, the atmosphere and various sources available under the Earth. Among them, the most observed is radon. Since our republic is rich in underground resources, the activity of Radon is higher and poses a serious threat to buildings and installations.
[en] In 2007, the European Commission (EC) commissioned a group of experts to undertake the revision of Report RP91 'Criteria for Acceptability of Radiological (including Radiotherapy) and Nuclear Medicine Installations' written in 1997. The revised draft report was submitted to the EC in 2010, which issued it for public consultation. The EC commissioned the same group of experts to consider the comments of the public consultation for further improvement of the revised report. The EC intends to publish the final report under its Radiation Report Series as RP162. This paper presents a selection of practical applications of suspension criteria scenarios in radiotherapy, mostly in brachytherapy, with special emphasis on the critical roles and responsibilities of qualified radiotherapy staff (radiation oncologists, medical physicists and radiotherapy technicians).
