Pennsylvania-Based IT Services Company Helps Local Companies Plan for Upgrading and Refreshing Their Technology to Save Money and Improve Productivity Laser Lab — a managed service provider specializing in helping organizations leverage the latest technology while increasing efficiency and decreasing cost — today announced it will be offering a free technology Lifecycle Management Plan to small and medium-sized businesses in Pennsylvania until the end of June. The goal of the free assessment is to help local organizations get the most from their technology infrastructure, adopt cost-effective innovations that will make them more competitive, and prevent trouble down the road caused by out-of-date or aging systems. According to Michele McHenry, President and CEO at Laser Lab, “Many businesses try to squeeze as much life as possible from their technology assets. While this may seem to be a good idea, the downsides are unexpected expenses and disruptions as equipment inevitably breaks down and becomes obsolete. Our free Lifecycle Management Plan helps companies get more value from their IT by planning ahead, simplifies budgeting and helps them make better decisions on future investments. Plus, we can help them take advantage of significant volume discounts they can’t leverage on their own.” During a Lifecycle Management Plan, Laser Lab will get a clear understanding of a company, its goals, its current technology situation and any technology challenges it's facing. The technician will then conduct an on-site investigation of the servers, computer hardware and software, network, telecom system and data storage. Additionally, the technician will check the Internet connection, any cloud-based services and existing service agreements on currently deployed technologies. Finally, the technician will present an analysis of what upgrades or improvements need to be made, as well as a sample timetable for taking action. The free Lifecycle Management Plan assessment by Laser Lab is available from through the end of June 2017. Interested companies can sign up online or call 717-738-3333. Laser Lab is a managed print and IT services provider for small and medium-sized businesses located throughout South Central Pennsylvania. Some of the company’s services and solutions include print services, office equipment, OEM and re-manufactured toner cartridges, IT consulting, data backup and disaster recovery, and customized IT services.

IT Services Firm Gives Office 365 Advice to Local Entrepreneurs and Offers Free Assessment Laser Lab, a managed services provider (MSP) specializing in helping organizations gain efficiency and cost savings through technology, today announced its partnership as an authorized implementation and support partner for Microsoft Office 365. The newest (and most powerful) version of Microsoft’s ubiquitous Office software suite, Office 365 is a cloud-hosted software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that provides businesses with powerful, feature-rich versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and other productivity applications, as well as hosted Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive storage, Skype for Business and more. According to Michele McHenry, CEO at Laser Lab, “Office 365 is one of the most innovative and revolutionary offerings we’ve seen from Microsoft in the past few years. It has tons of great features, is built for productivity and collaboration, gives IT teams greater control over security and data privacy, and delivers a consistent user experience whether used on a computer or mobile device. But, despite all these benefits, there are still companies that hesitate to upgrade to Office 365. It’s my hope that we can help Pennsylvania small and medium-sized businesses make the transition, and become more mobile, flexible and competitive.” Five Reasons Why Small and Medium-Sized Businesses Should Upgrade to Office 365 Unlike previous versions of Office where you would purchase the software along with a limited number of licenses, Office 365 can be easily scaled to meet the needs of your business. Administrators can add or remove users easily, and only pay for the licenses used per month. Because it’s a cloud-based service, all applications are automatically kept up to date. This improves security and ensures that all users have access to the same set of features. Office 365 allows users to work and collaborate from anywhere, and on virtually any type of device. Shared documents can be accessed via OneDrive cloud storage and Skype for Business allows real-time communication from a computer, smartphone or tablet. Data security is the top priority for most businesses. Office 365 uses BitLocker, SSL over HTTP and IRM to ensure your valuable documents and data stay safe. Plus, it requires all users to implement a strong password or multi-factor authentication for additional security. Office 365’s cloud-based version of Exchange provides all the benefits of Exchange Server 2010 without the costs associated with deploying it in-house. It offers user mailboxes up to 25 GB and allows recovery of deleted items even they’ve been manually purged. To better aid businesses in making the transition to Office 365, Laser Lab is offering a free Office 365 consultation through the end of December. For a small to medium-sized business or non-profit to qualify, they must be in Lancaster Berks, Lebanon, or West Chester county, and have a business that relies on computer systems for day-to-day operations. Qualifying organizations can sign up for their no-cost assessment online or call 717-738-3333.

The movement of the microorganisms towards a higher concentration of the chemical attractant is called positive chemotaxis and is involved in the efficiency of chemical degradation. Several studies are focused in this field related to genomics, and towards demonstrating chemotactic responses by bacteria, but there is little information related to the activity and morphology of their response. In this work, we use a recently reported dynamic speckle laser method, to process images and to distinguish motile surface patterns per area of colonisation by applying image processing techniques called fuzzy mathematical morphology (FMM). The images of bacterial colonies are usually surfaced, with vague edges and non-homogeneous grey levels. Hence, conventional image processing methods for shape analysis cannot be applied in these cases. In this paper, we propose the application FMM to solve this problem. The approach given was effective to segment, detect and also to describe colonisation patterns. Copyright © 2014 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

A study was conducted to demonstrate flexible microdomain specific staining of block copolymers (BCP) for 3D optical nanoscopy. Homopolymers were tagged by incorporation of reactive functional groups during synthesis that were reacted with complementarily functionalized dyemolecules. Two variants of two common click chemistry reactions were used, including the thiol-ene and the alkyne-azide Huisgen cycloaddition reactions, to ensure efficient and selective coupling. The synthesis of the functionalized polymers was performed through RAFT polymerization. Two equally viable synthesis routes were undertaken where the first resulted in a thiol end-functionalized polymer and the second scheme yielded a statistical copolymer with a small number of units containing an exposed alkyne side group.

The result of the investigations into the optical interferometry using the low-coherent radiation sources beyond the coherence zone are presented. It is shaven that when the difference in the Michelson interferometer arms exceeds the coherence length of a light-emitting diode (LED) radiation, the spectral interference phenomenon may well be utilized to make measurements ofmicro- and nanodistances depending upon the delay time and the relative phase between the reference and probing signals. © 2011 by Begell House, Inc.
