L’aeroporto di Fiumicino testa con successo il sistema di controllo antidroga di Intelligent Fingerprinting

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 luglio 2019

Il trasporto intracorporeo è il processo di ingestione o inserimento nel corpo umano di ovuli di sostanze stupefacenti per eluderne il rilevamento. Il nuovo sistema antidroga di Intelligent Fingerprinting permette agli addetti doganali di agire in base alla ricezione di informazioni sulla possibile presenza di corrieri della droga e di rilevare tracce di trasporto intracorporeo entro soli 10 minuti, contrariamente a quanto accade con i tradizionali test dei fluidi corporei come l’urina, che solitamente richiedono strutture specificamente predisposte, sono più costose da gestire e possono richiedere più tempo per il controllo dei potenziali corrieri.Il test antidroga di Intelligent Fingerprinting raccoglie e analizza minuscole tracce di sudore dall’impronta digitale dei sospetti per rilevare l’eventuale presenza di stupefacenti, o dei loro metaboliti, rilasciati nel sistema della persona a seguito dell’ingestione o dell’inserimento di ovuli sigillati. Il test controlla simultaneamente quattro gruppi di narcotici – oppiacei, cocaina, anfetamine e cannabis – e offre una soluzione semplice, non invasiva e igienica, rapida e facile per tutti i soggetti coinvolti.
La soluzione per controlli antidroga di Intelligent Fingerprinting include una cartuccia monouso a prova di manomissione che impiega solo cinque secondi per raccogliere un campione di sudore. Il modulo di analisi portatile di Intelligent Fingerprinting legge quindi la cartuccia e in pochi minuti visualizza su un display un risultato positivo o negativo per ciascuna delle sostanze previste nel test.

Best’s Market Segment Report: Positive Momentum for Russia’s Insurance Market

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 luglio 2019

Following a period of challenge, Russia’s insurance market appears to have reached a turning point with more diversified premium growth and better profitability reported in 2018, according to a new AM Best report. Nevertheless, in AM Best’s view, the recovery is fragile, and threats remain that could adversely impact market development and performance in the medium term.The Best’s Market Segment Report, titled “Positive Momentum for Russia’s Insurance Market, but Threats Remain,” states that development of Russia’s insurance market has been tempered in recent years by geopolitical instability, economic stagnation and the weak performance of the compulsory motor third-party liability segment. At the same time, more stringent oversight from the country’s insurance regulator, the Central Bank of Russia (CBR), has led to a reduction in the number of market participants, as smaller (re)insurers have been unable to withstand the increase in regulatory scrutiny.In 2018, the market’s total insurance premiums rose by approximately 16%, to RUB 1.48 trillion (USD 23 billion), according to the CBR. Notably, the uptick in gross written premiums was supported not just by growth in the life insurance business, but by higher income from non-life products as well. In terms of profitability, Russian insurers benefited from solid investment returns and improved combined ratios.The report also notes that at year-end 2018, 199 insurers were operating in Russia, down from over 700 companies 10 years earlier. The number of participants has declined each year, as a result of higher regulatory capital requirements, more stringent regulatory oversight and the voluntary exit of some companies. As a result of tougher conditions and a number of mergers and acquisitions, the market has also become more concentrated.
