Quality in the Laboratory

Quality is of extreme importance for labs. However, it is often seen as the responsibility of the quality manager and its importance and impact on your own work is not always well understood. In this webinar, Peter Kootstra will reinforce how quality can improve your performance and your work satisfaction.

Easy and Rapid Analysis of Antibody Drug Conjugates and Highly Hydrophobic Proteins

Automated methods for charge heterogeneity detection such as imaged capillary isoelectric focusing (icIEF) have been widely adopted by the biopharma industry. These techniques provide rapid high resolution charge variant separation with easy method development and minimal start up time. This webinar will provide an overview of the iCE technology and its applications.

Extreme isotope effects: Changing bonds

David Bradley

thumbnail image: Extreme isotope effects Changing bonds

The effects of different isotopes present in a molecule can affect the making and breaking of chemical bonds during the course of a chemical reaction. However, work published in Angewandte Chemie uses theoretical calculations and other techniques to demonstrate that, in extreme cases, isotopic substitution can even cause a fundamental change in the type of chemical bond.

Corkage: Infrared clues

Researchers in Spain have demonstrated how infrared spectroscopy can be used to enhance the control of parameters that determine the performance of a wine cork in the bottle.

Screening of dozens of strains of fungi that infect insects has led to the discovery of a strong inhibitor for the enzyme tyrosinase. Tyrosinase activity is involved in insect development processes but also in human aging, the development of melanoma, wound healing, and even in the browning of fruits and vegetables.

While even the best analytical techniques cannot rectify problems generated by sloppy sample preparation, this less "sexy" step between the point at which analytes are transferred from the sample matrix to a form suitable for analysis is often overlooked. Read a free chapter from "Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry " here.

In this tutorial Dr Gary M Hieftje from Indiana University takes us right back to the grass roots of atomic spectroscopy making it ideal reading for either the graduate or anyone wishing learn more about this important branch of analytical chemistry.

The infrared spectrum is rich in information, and this article by John Coates, taken from the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia of Analytical Chemistry is intended to help the reader to extract the maximum information.
