Analyzing Protein Biopharmaceuticals Using LC–MS
By 2020, more than 50% of approved drugs are expected to be protein biopharmaceuticals. Koen Sandra from the Research Institute for Chromatography in Belgium discusses the challenges of characterizing protein biopharmaceuticals and why LC–MS is now indispensable for characterizing this class of drugs.
A Simple, Rapid Automated Method for Determining Total Extractable Fat Using Pressurized Liquid Extraction (PLE)
Regulating fat content is essential to maintaining the quality of food and feed products. The food industry extracts total fat from food samples to analyze for Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). Traditionally, performed by time consuming Soxhlet extraction.  Pressurized Liquid Extraction, performs the process in minutes resulting in reduced solvent and higher throughput.Register for a Free Webinar February 26, 2014 11:00 am EST.

The LCGC Blog: Measuring Quality...
Surrogates, Internal Standards, Isotopically labelled Standards, External Standards, Calibrants, QC Samples etc. etc. - our working lives are littered with checks to ensure that our instruments are giving us the correct results. And rightly so. But do we always use these checks correctly? Do we know what we are checking and why? Indeed, do we know how to design methods/procedures whichemploy a valid checking regime, often referred to as a Quality System? Let's find out.  More...
ACE UltraCore Solid-core LC Columns
ACE UltraCore is a new range of ultra-inert, solid-core (superficially porous) particle UHPLC/HPLC columns from Advanced Chromatography Technologies Limited. The monodisperse particle distribution of these phases combines high efficiency and performance, with a low column back pressure, to deliver exceptional chromatography. Two complementary phases, SuperC18 and SuperPhenylHexyl, both offer excellent peak shape and superb phase stability across an extended pH range of 1.5 to 11.0.Learn more
