Hygiena: The Quality Monitoring Tool for Every Brewer’s Tool Kit
| By Hygiena International
Anecdotes from craft brewing booms of the past (c.1997) identify poor quality as a root problem leading to market contraction. While overall quality is shaped by a bevy of factors (ingredients, process, tools, and sheer artistry of the brewmaster), one common element of outstanding craft brewers who survived the bust is a commitment to controlling, measuring, and improving factors that influence end-product quality. Utilizing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and process management principles, craft brewers can reign in variability and process deviation to ensure consistently high-quality outcomes. This is a lesson learned for craft brewers rocketing to success in the modern craft brewing boom.

Atlantia Explores the Placebo Effect: Is Achieving Trial Success all in our Minds?
| By Atlantia Food Clinical Trials Ltd
Atlantia delves into research element surrounding the placebo effect. The study of the placebo response, and other closely related phenomena, has been a constant source of fascination since they were first described. Over the last decade we have observed a great increase in the amount of dedicated experimental work performed on these processes, and ultimately we have arrived at a consensus that they constitute real psychobiological phenomena with fundamental implications for the pathophysiology and management of medical conditions.
