Call for Nominations
The Chromatography Forum of the Delaware Valley has announced that it is seeking nominations for the 2013 Dal Nogare Award. The award is given each year to the individual who is an outstanding scientist in the field of chromatography.
Chinese proverb "Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance is to fall behind." Learning new and future ways to do separations can be easier than you think. That is why you should learn about Cogent TYPE-C™ silica based HPLC columns and methods for polar and non-polar compounds that are robust and easy to use; learning about them is to advance your laboratory's capabilities.

More Capabilities for Studies in Metabolomics, Thursday, November 3, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT
The study of small-molecule metabolites in biological fluids and tissue has become increasingly popular. However, scientists investigating the presence and flux of these metabolites face formidable challenges. By their very nature, both matrices and analytes of interest are highly complex. HPLC (and UHPLC) coupled to mass spectrometry has become the laboratories analytical workhorse in metabolomic studies, but doesn't provide the complete picture. More than one analytical tool is needed to help provide the missing data. Two techniques often overlooked in this field are ion exchange chromatography (IC) and liquid chromatography coupled to electrochemical detection (LC-EC). This web seminar demonstrates how each technique can contribute "pieces of the puzzle" to better understand the metabolome. Data will be presented demonstrating the useful information that can be obtained in metabolomic studies using IC, IC-MS and LC-EC.
Investigating the Quality of Water Used in HPLC and LC-MS, Wednesday, November 29, 2011 3:00 PM CET (Paris)
Many problems encountered in reversed phase HPLC is caused by contaminated water. This webcast will provide practical information about contaminants in water, how these affect HPLC (and LC-MS), and how different water purification processes are combined to produce high purity water suitable for sensitive HPLC applications. Investigations on the quality of different types/sources of high purity water will be discussed, including an initial study that detected trace amounts of pharmaceutical molecules in HPLC- and LC-MS-grade bottled water. Recommendations for maintaining the quality of high purity water to avoid contamination issues in HPLC and LC-MS will also be discussed.
