Instrument Systems take on Burden of Compliance

Event Overview: The ever-changing regulatory environment faced by manufacturers in pharmaceuticals and other regulated industries can cause confusion and doubts about compliance. Instrument systems designed to meet regulatory requirements can relieve the burden for manufacturers. How do they do it? Watch this webcast to see how two different instrument platforms—Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and microvolume […]

Something you need to see, to believe

Increasing productivity is a consistent message that isn’t always backed by performance, making claims difficult to believe. QAQC labs often fall short of their productivity goals for a variety of reasons; interruptions, need for new workflows, manual steps, tedious sample prep, re-work, and collecting background measurements are just a few examples. With advanced software and […]

Ensuring product safety and efficacy of alcohol-based hand sanitizers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) first revised its hand hygiene guidelines in 2002 to recommend alcohol-based hand sanitizer as a possible alternative to hand cleansing with soap and water for the public and health care personnel. The majority of alcohol-based hand sanitizers contain either isopropanol, ethanol, n-propanol, or a combination of two […]

Discover new correlations by hyphenating rheology with spectroscopic/optical analysis

You can correlate the absolute flow and deformation characteristics of a material with processing or application behavior using rheological measurements. Yet the mechanical properties are directly related to microscopic or molecular structure. Combining rheometry with optical or spectroscopic techniques gives you a much better understanding of the material. Find out more by reviewing a compendium […]

Microplastics Analysis by FTIR and Raman

  Small particles. Big impact. Beaches, clothing, bottled water, fish, beer, the air and honey all have one thing in common. They each contain microplastics. Less than 5 millimeters in size [1], these confounding microparticles are an urgent concern as they invade food chains and slip through purification systems undetected.  Microplastics are small plastic fibers […]
