Technology Innovations in Animal Health

Animal health care has become an increasingly important market for the veterinary sector when it comes to products and care provision services. It has offered a lot of windows to the private sector and has given way to the mainstream of how animal healthcare is managed in a global market. On this respect the debate about the requirements of animal health care and how it is met by veterinary providers is increasing. How are animal needs met? What are the adaptations being made in the solutions provided to improve the state of animal health care in the country?

Pet owners in the 20th century have vastly evolved from the casual groomer of the old days. A lot of pet owners are doing whatever it takes to provide the best care and quality of living for their pets. A surprising 10% of the medicine distribution scale in the United States alone is attributed to animal treatment. This is just one of the medical scopes that animal health care has advanced on through the years, and the trend is replicating in other aspects of medical diagnostics and wellness promotion in animals.

Radiological diagnostics such as X-rays play a crucial role in the promotion of animal health care. Even more, veterinary medicine and animal hospital offer this as more pet owners take advantage of this diagnostic exam in making sure their pets are getting top of the line treatment and early diagnosis for diseases. Digital imaging systems are now being developed specific to animal health care; Computerized Radiography and Direct Radiography are now becoming popular as a diagnostic process for detecting tumors and anomalies in animals. With the new technology being groomed to cater to Animal Health Care needs, you now see automated tools that give digital imaging in a matter of seconds.

Dental medicine in Animal Health Care is another avenue that is receiving much improvements and mainstream technology to increase the interest of pet owners. Gum disease is a leading problem for a lot of pets and now, Dental treatment in every area of Animal Oto-Pharyngeal Science can be explored with diagnostic technology. Mobile wireless panels used as X-rays are now brought to patient homes, and small digital plates are becoming very popular for veterinary diagnostic centers to increase the amount of convenience for pet owners seeking dental treatment for their pets.

This is just the start of the technological revolution in Animal Health Care, with the increase in global marketing and awareness programs for the importance of early pet disease detection more and more companies are providing innovative diagnostic solutions for veterinary medicine to use.

A UV Technology Innovator

Oliver Lawal is like many scientists and engineers in the UV technology field, with intellectual interests that span a wide range. At the University of Manchester England, where he studied electrical, mechanical and software engineering, “I couldn’t decide on one field of study,” recalled Lawal, “so I graduated with multiple degrees and an understanding of several areas.”

Since then, Lawal has lived and worked in six different countries and his expertise contributed to many important projects in UV technology applications. “My first involvement with UV was as a Project Manger in the United Kingdom. I worked on the first large-scale UV installation using variable power electronic ballasts driving low-pressure amalgam lamps,” remembered Lawal. After this, he worked on a UV installation at a nuclear power station in France. Lawal then went on to work on the largest UV wastewater project in the world (at that time) in Auckland, New Zealand.

All of these endeavors have contributed to Lawal’s outlook and vision for UV technology. In this growing field, technology is evolving quickly. Lawal refers to this growth as the water-energy-technology nexus. “We have the ability to help ensure sustainability of our most precious resources for future generations by developing better and better technical solutions to our water and energy stresses,” commented Lawal.

Oliver Lawal’s family has been involved with the energy industry for some time. His grandfathers were motor sport enthusiasts and this helped to stimulate his initial interest in technology and engineering. Yet it was Lawal’s parents’ interest in environmental issues that ultimately led him to a career in water. He recalls his father’s comments about the difference in experiencing oil or water shortages expressed this way: “If we run out of oil tomorrow, we’ll all be driving electric cars. But, if we run out of clean water tomorrow, driving will be the least of our problems.”

Lawal’s professional life is challenging and rewarding. Today, he’s a board member with International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) and he is president of Aquionics Inc., a company with a 30-year track record in selling and maintaining UV water disinfection technology to municipal and industrial water and wastewater markets in North America. Lawal shares a birthday with Amelia Earhart, and he professes to have the same sense of adventure as her. In his leisure time, he enjoys riding motorcycles and driving racecars, activities that reinforce his passions for technology and adventure.

The UV technology industry has changed since he began his career in the late 90s and it will continue to evolve. “From the perspective of equipment design and operation there is no question that our ability to more accurately predict and control process performance has increased dramatically,” notes Lawal. New techniques such as computational fluid dynamics, microbiological assays, power control and UV-C monitoring are more refined and more commonplace now. “This has resulted in great improvements in energy consumption and a reduction in operational risk,” observes Lawal.

Lawal believes that growth and improvement in UV water disinfection technology has a direct impact on the public health, by controlling pathogens in public water and wastewater supplies. “The sheer breadth of applications seen today, targeting very specific results, is staggering,” says Lawal. “The reduction of endocrine disrupting compounds, total organic compounds, ozone, chloramine, chlorine, cryptosporidium and viruses are commonplace and the applications using them expanding,” he added. Applications that are directly impacted include: ballast water, combined sewage overflows, aquatics, hydraulic fracturing, medical devices, semi-conductors, pharmaceuticals and more.

As president of a leading provider of UV technology, Lawal maintains a focused approach with a close eye towards ethical concerns. “It is important that we do not take shortcuts for short term commercial gains,” he says. “As the sphere and influence of UV technology grows, and new technical solutions like UV-LED’s become available, we need to ensure all stakeholders: regulators, process designers and users understand the critical issues. Regulation is important – it must be robust yet enabling. Process design must be sound and ensure seamless integration with other technologies. And ultimately the technology must be executed in a manner that allows safe and reliable operation.”

There is no doubt that the cleanliness of water impacts the lives of people worldwide. By focusing his life’s work on improving the quality of public water and wastewater with UV technology, Lawal is reiterating his parents’ vision for a cleaner environment and taking the necessary actions to implement this by working towards these goals on a daily basis.

A Great Technological Innovation

In this modern realm, everyone needs more sophisticated technology and high speed interventions. No one needs to wait for anyone or anything. And that is the reason why business magnets are running behind packages if easy access. In fact, nothing is considered to be impossible by any means in this new world and it is the technology that makes us hold everything within our fist.

It is very difficult to majority of us to imagine a world without internet.earlier man had so many limitations, but now we have a world which is capable of anything and everything.
