Phosphate minerals have long been used for the production of phosphorus-based chemicals used in many economic sectors. However, these resources are not renewable and the natural phosphate stocks are decreasing. In this context, the research of new phosphate sources has become necessary. Many types of wastes contain non-negligible phosphate concentrations, such as wastewater. In wastewater treatment plants, phosphorus is eliminated by physicochemical and/or biological techniques. In this latter case, a specific microbiota, phosphate accumulating organisms (PAOs), accumulates phosphate as polyphosphate. This molecule can be considered as an alternative phosphate source, and is directly extracted from wastewater generated by human activities. This review focuses on the techniques which can be applied to enrich and try to isolate these PAOs, and to detect the presence of polyphosphate in microbial cells. [less ▲]

L’obligation d’aménagement raisonnable pour cause de liberté de conscience et de religion peut se définir comme une obligation de nature juridique, applicable dans une situation discriminatoire ou mettant en cause la liberté religieuse d’un individu, qui a pour objectif d’aménager une norme ou une pratique de portée générale. Elle s’exerce dans les limites du raisonnable. Afin de saisir pleinement la portée du concept d’aménagement raisonnable pour motif religieux et ses conséquences en droit du travail, un détour par l’Amérique du Nord s’impose. Par la suite, cet article se focalise sur la possibilité de consacrer l’obligation d’aménagement raisonnable en droit belge. Pour ce faire, les enseignements à tirer du droit européen et communautaire sont mis en lumière, avant de terminer ce tour d’horizon par une analyse des ressources qu’offrent l’article 20, 5°, de la loi du 3 juillet 1978 relative aux contrats de travail ainsi que la législation relative aux risques psychosociaux telle qu’elle a été amendée lors de la réforme de 2014.

When ferromagnetic particles are suspended at an interface under magnetic fields, dipole-dipole interactions compete with capillary attraction. This combination of forces has recently given promising results towards controllable self-assemblies as well as low-Reynolds-number swimming systems. The elementary unit of these assemblies is a pair of particles. Although equilibrium properties of this interaction are well described, the dynamics remain unclear. In this paper, the properties of magnetocapillary bonds are determined by probing them with magnetic perturbations. Two deformation modes are evidenced and discussed. These modes exhibit resonances whose frequencies can be detuned to generate nonreciprocal motion. A model is proposed that can become the basis for elaborate collective behaviors. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND Techniques for banking cord blood units (CBUs) as source for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation have been developed over the past 20 years, aimed to improve laboratory efficiency without altering the biologic properties of the graft. A large-scale, registry-based assessment of the impact of the banking variables on the clinical outcome is currently missing. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 677 single cord blood transplants (CBTs) carried out for acute leukemia in complete remission in centers affiliated with the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation were selected. An extensive set of data concerning CBU banking were collected and correlations with clinical outcome were assessed. Clinical endpoints were transplant-related mortality, engraftment, and graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). RESULTS The median time between collection and CBT was 4.1 years (range, 0.2-16.3 years). Volume reduction (VR) of CBUs before freezing was performed in 59.2% of available reports; in half of these the frozen volume was less than 30 mL. Cumulative incidences of neutrophil engraftment on Day 60, 100-day acute GVHD (II-IV), and 4-year chronic GVHD were 87, 29, and 21 ± 2%. The cumulative incidence of nonrelapse mortality (NRM) at 100 days and 4-year NRM were, respectively, 16 ± 2 and 30 ± 2%. Neither the variables related to banking procedures nor the interval between collection and CBT influenced the clinical outcome. CONCLUSION These findings indicate a satisfactory validation of the techniques associated with CBU VR across the banks. Cell viability assessment varied among the banks, suggesting that efforts to improve the standardization of CBU quality controls are needed. [less ▲]

In order to perform the analysis of organic pollutant in trace by Raman spectroscopy, it is necessary to develop SERS substrates, such as noble metal nanoparticles (NPs). The synthesis of gold or silver NPs is used for analytical applications. It is therefore important to precisely control the synthesis of these SERS substrates to achieve reproducible measurements. Microfluidics is a very attractive technology for the control of the synthesis parameters such as temperature, reaction time and mixing conditions which affect both the size and the morphology of NPs. The synthesis of gold or silver NPs in microreactor is a technique we are already developing in the laboratory. We develop a method for the continuous synthesis of gold and silver NPs in a segmented regime capillary microreactor. The residence time and temperature have a significant effect on the size of the NPs, enabling to prepare different sizes of NPs using the same microreactor and the same precursor solutions. [less ▲]
