New Benchtop Mass Spectrometer For Cell Culture And Fermentation
Intended specifically for process development labs in need of a flexible gas analyzer, the Thermo Scientific Prima BT Mass Spectrometer is designed to offer customers reliable multi-stream performance. The high-precision composition measurements mean fast, robust analysis that can be reliably multiplexed. The Prima BT analyzer was designed to allow users to work with a flat-topped peak profile that tolerates mass-scale drift with no effect on measurement results. Learn more.

The challenge of effective cell culture process development often involves how to simultaneously meet two competing needs: the need to maximize improvement of process performance, and the need to minimize time spent on process development.

Whether a small enterprise or large institution, many organizations have and will be faced with the challenge of closing a lab. No matter what the size or scope of the closure, the person tasked with closing the facility faces a daunting assignment: millions of dollars in real estate, laboratory equipment, and research devices will need to be redeployed, sold, or disposed of.

Controlled atmosphere glove boxes are designed to contain an internal inert gas environment, purified to some level. How to achieve the gas purities requires understanding a few fundamental concerns related to the chemistry and physics of gases. Most often misunderstood, and/or overlooked, are the properties of gas permeation and equilibrium. Physics describes permeation as the movement or penetration of gas molecules through a solid substance. All solid materials (glass, plastics, and steel) are permeable to some degree. This includes the material used in constructing glove boxes.

If anyone can be called an expert on pharmaceutical shipments, Chuck Forsaith certainly fits the bill. Forsaith is director of supply chain security at Purdue Pharma Technologies and chairman of the Pharmaceutical Cargo Security Coalition (PCSC). He previously served as a municipal and state police officer, as well as directing security operations at a U.S. military installation. When it comes to the safety of pharmaceutical shipments, he believes security is getting better, resulting in a dramatic decrease in security breaches. However, there is still a lot more that can be done to make everyone more vigilant and hopefully put an end to the huge financial losses and health risks posed by the theft of pharmaceutical products. The ramifications of poor security cannot be overemphasized. As Forsaith notes in every presentation he gives, no one has ever suffered an adverse medical event from watching a stolen television set.
