XU Chemistry Equips With MeasureNet
August 1, 2006
The Chemistry Department of Xavier University has chosen MeasureNet for electronic data acquisition in multiple areas of its laboratory program. Two twelve-station networks are being installed with probeware that includes capabilities for titrations, thermo-chemistry, and gas law analysis.
The college’s urban Cincinnati, Ohio campus was founded in 1831 and serves over 6,600 students annually. The university has 294 full-time faculty giving it an average class size of 22 a student faculty ratio of 13:1. Xavier ranks third overall amongst 142 Midwestern colleges and universities in the 2006 edition of U.S. News and World Report "America’s Best Colleges." The 2006 Princeton Review’s “The Best 361 Colleges” includes Xavier as one of the best institutions for undergraduate education in the United States.
"We are excited to have Xavier on board," noted MeasureNet President Robert Voorhees. "Needless to say, they have an impressive academic reputation that reaches well beyond the region. Also, their close proximity to users at the University of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky University has the potential to encourage a number of interesting synergies in areas of probeware and curriculum development."
MeasureNet Technology Ltd. manufactures patented, network-based data acquisition interfaces for science teaching laboratories. It is a spin-off of the University of Cincinnati's Department of Chemistry and is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio.
