Optimizing Carbohydrate, Glycan and Sialic Acid analysis using HPAE-PAD (Webinar)

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
This webinar provides an overview on how to implement high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAE-PAD) to obtain optimal sensitivity and separations for glycan and sialic analysis. Overviews of the technology, column selectivity, sample analysis, implementation, and performance optimization are presented along with examples of oligosaccharides from proteins highlighting the benefits of HPAE-PAD for your laboratory. Speakers: Bill LaCourse...

Food Safety: IC and LC Analysis of Food and Beverages for Contaminants (Webinar)

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
PepsiCo has developed ion chromatography (IC) and ultra high pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC) methods to analyze anion and oxyhalide contaminants in water, which are classified as health risks by the World Health Organization. This webinar provides an overview of how to obtain optimal sensitivity and separations when analyzing for food and beverage contaminants and toxic substances. Speakers: Elizabeth Hobbs (PepsiCo), Marcus Martin (Thermo Fisher Scientific), Deepali Mohindra (Thermo...

Pesticides and Herbicides: A Growing Concern (Webinar)

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
This webinar describes using suppressed ion chromatography--mass spectrometry (IC-MS/MS) for glyphosate (a widely used broad-spectrum herbicide) analysis with the result that required reporting limits can be achieved without time-consuming derivatization. In addition, a validated extraction method for weathered toxaphene (banned since 1990) and its degradation products in fish tissues using Accelerated Solvent Extraction is also discussed. Speakers: Diana Burdette (US EPA R4 SESD), Stuart...

DERMATOLOGY BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS

In the years 1941-1942, the G.B. makes experiments with anthrax on Scottish islands. Forty years later (1982) Insland Gruinard is still heavily contaminated. Despite all attempts to disinfect the island, the spores of this experiment have led to quarantine them for 48 years, until 1990. In 1986 a specialized company was paid half a million pounds to decontaminate the 520-acre island, scattering on the ground 280 tons of formaldehyde in dilute 2000 tons of seawater. Today if someone...

Photovoltaics Technology: No Longer an Outlier

submitted by: icamp2012school
Larry Kazmerski, National Renewable Energy Laboratory Solar energy from photovoltaic devices has been around since the early days of the space race, but historically has not had a substantial impact on our global energy scheme. Is that now changing? Dr. Larry Kazmerski is the executive director of Science & Technology Partnerships at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, CO. He has worked at NREL for over 30 years and was previously the director of the National...
