Fibre optic scope or endoscope of such small size and flexibility to allow safe diagnosis and treatment of lesions and disorders of the ureter and kidney. A 2mm outer diameter tube fabricated from a low friction material includes a bundle of fiber optics shaped to conform to an inner sector of the tube. This bundle provides illumination while a second fiber optic bundle, bonded alongside the first bundle, permits observation at a distal end. The remainder of the interior of the tube defines a longitudinal duct for the bidirectional exchange of fluids. The internal disposition of the fiber bundles and duct keeps the dimensions small enough to permit ureteral and renal applications as well as other heretofore inaccessible places.

Facilities Engineering is for the employer's electrical engineering, maintenance, environmental, health, safety, energy, controls/instrumentation, civil engineering and HVAC needs. The need for expertise in these categories varies widely depending on whether the facility is, for example, a single-use site or a multi-use campus; whether it is an office, school, hospital, museum and processing/production plant. Some colleges and universities offer degrees in facilities engineering. Others offer continuing education courses. The association for facilities engineering offers rigorous programs to certify engineers, maintenance managers and supervisors.

Flow Cytometry is a technique for counting, examining and sorting microscopic particles suspended in a stream of fluid. It allows simultaneous multiparametric analysis of the physical or chemical characteristics of single cells flowing through an optical or electronic detection apparatus. Modern flow cytometers are able to analyse several thousand particles every second, in 'real time' and can actively separate and isolate particles having specified properties. A flow cytometer has 5 main components:a flow cell, a light source - commonly used are lamps, high power water-cooled lasers, low power air-cooled lasers, a detector and analogue to digital conversion system , an amplification system - linear or logarithmic and a computer for analysis of the signals.
