The pharmaceutical industry is an international marketplace. With dedicated central laboratories in the UK and US, alliances in Asia, South Africa and Australia, CentraLabS can offer a truly global service. By Dr Daniel Chapple.

ft-ir microscopy can help identify hit-and-run vehicles

For many applications in the areas of forensics, pharmaceuticals, life sciences and semiconductor development it is essential to analyse two-dimensional samples by infrared (IR) spectroscopy with high spatial resolution.

Imaging crystalline protein grains in 3D using X-ray diffraction

Preparing protein crystals has always been difficult because their growth mechanisms are not well understood. A better insight into these mechanisms is now possible, using a new imaging method based on coherent x-ray diffraction.

Affinity chromatography is focal point in proteomics techniques

John Curling reports on the use of affinity chromatography in protein research and development.

A new multipurpose research rheometer offers more flexibility

Most rheologists would prefer a rheometer that delivered state-of-the-art performance in both modes, since it would cut capital costs, and increase experimental flexibility with no performance loss. Such devices are now commercially...

High precision laboratory balances have redesigned electronics

Adam Equipment has introduced several new products to its range of weighing instruments. The company now offers a range of high precision laboratory balances ­ the AEA analytical and AEP top loading units ­ as well as the QT portable...

Surcrose: a sweet taste to mask the bitterness of pharmaceutical ingredients

Sucrose is commonly used as an excipient in oral pharmaceuticals like syrups, tablets or sachets, due to its properties. It is: soluble; anhydrous, inert, chemically, physically and microbiologically stable; available in a variety of...

New accessories for the spectrophotometer
