Vendor Column: Using Lean Six Sigma principles to improve Laboratory Execution at the Bench

Date: Jul 9, 2012

Author: Chris Stumpf

Welcome to this fourth in a series of features, in which Waters Corporation's Chris Stumpf focuses on Lab Informatics. Every two months, Chris publishes a new informatics-related article which we hope will build into a worthwhile compendium of informatics material. This month, Chris continuing the discussion on Lean Six Sigma and Laboratory Informatics from his last feature, examining case studies focused on bench-level workflows that were migrated to an electronic laboratory notebook.

Vendor column: Qualitative models and their application to mining – “How you gonna get any gold if you’re not diggin’?”

Date: Jun 13, 2012

Author: Daniel Shiley

This is the second of a four-part series on chemometric applications for materials analysis. Those of you who have watched the “Gold Rush Alaska” television show on the Discovery Channel might recognize the quote. This is an old attitude, much different than today’s commercial mining companies, which are all very concerned with obtaining information before they begin to dig. The data derived from near-infrared (NIR) analysis often plays an important role in development of this much needed data.

Breathe easy: A bedside test for sepsis

Date: May 15, 2012

Author: David Bradley

Cheminformatics work on Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) demonstrates that, in an animal model at least, the exhaled breath can be used as an accurate, fast and simple point-of-care tool for the diagnosis and monitoring of sepsis.

Journal Highlight: Modeling the combustion of high molecular weight fuels by a functional group approach

Date: May 4, 2012

Author:

A novel approach is proposed for the simulation of the combustion of high molecular weight fuels, wherein the fuel surrogate is defined in terms of pseudospecies including the functional groups contained in the actual fuel, illustrated for linear and branched alkanes.

Diabetic heart risk: NMR offers molecular explanation

Date: May 1, 2012

Author: David Bradley

A small, but potentially very important, study that utilises NMR spectroscopy and other techniques has been used to reveal a possible mechanism that explains why patients with diabetes have a greater risk of developing heart disease.

Herbal acid: Poisonous remedy revealed

Date: Apr 30, 2012

Author: David Bradley

An informatics approach to toxic epidemiology has revealed that aristolochic acid (AA) leads to kidney failure and upper urinary tract cancer (UUC) in individuals exposed to the toxin. AA is found in some plant species that have been used in herbal medicine for centuries.
