Gilingan ng mais, pinahusay ng bagong teknolohiya
Posted: Thursday, November 07, 2019
Pinadali ng isang makina ang paggigiling ng mais sa mga kanayunan.    Ang ‘mobile’ na makina ay binuo ng Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PhilMech) ng Department of Agriculture (DA). Ito ay katanggap-tanggap sa aspetong teknikal at pinansyal.   Ang teknolohiya, di gaya ng nakaugaliang gilingan, ay hindi gumagamit ng ‘emery stone,’ dalawang ‘steel rollers,’ at ‘oscillating sifter’ na pawang nangangailangan ng mataas na ‘power.’  Dahil sa mga pagbabago sa ‘degerminator,’ ‘grinding,’ ‘sifting,’ at ‘cleaning mechanism’ ng bagong gilingan ng mais, ang makina ay may mas mataas na kapasidad. Ito ay nasa 940-1,100 kilo bawat oras sa mababang halaga ng produksyon na ?850,000 bawat ‘unit.’ Ito ay 28% lamang ng ?2.5 milyon na kabuoang halaga ng tradisyunal na giling...   read full story

Medical Teleparasitology: Utilizing information and communications technology to improve diagnosis of parasitic infections
Posted: Tuesday, September 25, 2018
Misdiagnosis of parasitic infections remains a challenge in the Philippines, particularly in remote areas where medical technologists (MTs) may lack necessary expertise for accurate diagnosis of less common parasitic infections. This is further complicated by the lack of a formal referral system where MTs can verify their diagnosis. Misdiagnosis results in inappropriate treatment of patients, thereby contributing to continuing morbidity and infection transmission. Accurate and timely diagnosis of parasitic infections is essential for appropriate treatment, as well as for generation of accurate data to support advocacy and policy formulation for the prevention and control of parasitic infections. To address this challenge, a team from the College of Public Health and the National Telehea...   read full story
