Three Massachusetts hospitals are in the spotlight after federal regulators say they failed to properly report patient deaths and injuries that may have been caused by medical devices. Massachusetts General, Brigham and Women's and UMass Memorial were among the 17 hospitals nationwide inspected by the FDA last December over concerns about infections possibly linked to contaminated instruments.

If you got the flu shot last year, you may have learned the hard way that it didn't work so well. It essentially offered no protection against the flu strain going around at that time. So how effective was the 2015-16 vaccine? According to Dr. Danuta Skowronski, an influenza expert with Canada's BC Centre for Disease Control, it was about 45% to 50% effective, which was an improvement, but still not good enough.

Dr. Skowronski pioneered the flu vaccine study protocol test negative design (TND), which is now used around the world. The TND system changed the assumption that the annual flu shot offers protection between 70% to 90%. Here's how TND works: hundreds of doctors' offices across Canada took samples from patients with flu-like symptoms, then recorded whether they got the flu shot. That simple protocol broke down the variables of protection by season, subtype, age group and vaccine product.

This week, MadgeTech pulled a double-header, exhibiting an array of data loggers for applications in laboratory science at the BioResearch Product Faires in both Amherst and Boston, Massachusetts. The Amherst event brought more than twenty-five product vendors from as far as Miami, Florida together with the university's scientific community of students, professors and laboratory managers. The faire provided a great opportunity to raise awareness of the capabilities of MadgeTech data loggers and connect the next generation of New England laboratory scientists with the latest data logging innovations. The Boston faire, which took place in the heart of the city's Longwood Medical Area, drew a crowd of laboratory and hospital researchers looking for complete solutions to complex problems.

MadgeTech sales professionals Chris Des Biens and Marc Chandonnet met with students, professors, researchers, and physicians who dropped by the MadgeTech booth to learn about the company's vast array of laboratory solutions. Many in attendance, even those with years of experience in the lab, were excited to learn about ways in which MadgeTech can validate, support and enhance their work. In particular, the real-time, continuous monitoring capabilities of MadgeTech Cloud Services and the 2000A series of wireless data loggers piqued the attention of a number of scientists and researchers looking for highly accurate, around-the-clock facilities monitoring for laboratories.
