New advances in multispectral imaging have combined the capabilities of microscopy and flow cytometry into a single platform that is used for quantitative image-based cellular assays in large and heterogeneous cell populations. These capabilities can be utilized to measure both BRDU staining and nuclear fragmentation in a TUNEL assay. These new advances will also allow for enhanced utility of TUNEL assays as well as the identification of apoptotic cells by their unique nuclear morphologies.

With the requirement to increase testing of agricultural and food products for the presence of aflatoxins, reliable and convenient testing methods that utilize readily available standard laboratory tools are in demand. For the general laboratory, newer technologies for aflatoxin analysis may be financially unattainable. This app note focuses on the innovative method developed to accurately test aflatoxins using general equipment.

Top performing companies are establishing manufacturing supply chain safeguards by partnering with rapid response contract manufacturers in order to mitigate the risk associated with production or shipment delays, and unforeseen swings in demand during multiple stages of the products life cycle. This paper examines 4 areas of supply chain safeguards: • Quoting and design for manufacturability (DFM) analysis • Prototyping • Pilot production and short runs • Bridging to high-volume production

Maintaining brand reputation and product quality has led to increased focus on qualifying raw materials and ingredients used in food production. In addition to traditional quality parameters, detection of adulterants plays a critical role in ensuring food safety and quality. FT-NIR spectrometers have become valuable tools for screening almost any raw material for adulterants in an easy and non-destructive way.

Many countries have enacted increasingly stringent food and safety legislations including those that regulate contaminants such as lead, copper, arsenic, tin and zinc. The primary methods, ICP-OES and AAS, for determining contaminant concentrations in food require testing within a laboratory. Portable high –resolution ED-XRF spectrometers bring testing directly to the line, eliminating the time consuming lab-based methodologies.

Producers of steel or aluminum sheets often coat their products with metals to protect them from rust and corrosion or add strength. Consistency of coating thickness – commonly referred to as “coat weight” – is vital to successful performance and requires advanced analytical techniques.

by Waters

In this Application note, we highlight the development of an LC method that optimized the Chromatographic resolution for the released N-glycans that are commonly found in mAbs, including the high mannos N-glycan structures that are known to negatively affect circulation half-life as well as indicate aberrant cell culture conditions

Today, most gas chromatographs (GC) are connected to one or more cylinders of high purity carrier gas. To achieve better results of their analysis at lower and lower concentration levels, instrument operators opt for ultra high purity gas of 99.999% or better. But just buying the best gas does not solve the problem; you must be able to transfer the gas from the cylinder to the instrument without contaminating the gas. The design of the transfer system is critical.
