Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.
Keeping a Specimen's Story Straight
Imagine 96 people standing shoulder to shoulder, not touching and attempting to breathe only the air un-exhaled by the others. Sound impossible?
Portable Kit Can Recover Traces of Chemical Evidence
A chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a portable version of his method for recovering trace chemicals such as environmental pollutants and forensic evidence including secret graves and arson fire debris.
Diagnosis of Two Rare Childhood Diseases Improved
For the first time, researchers have developed tests that could improve the diagnosis of two rare childhood diseases known as congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDGs) and metachromatic leukodystrophy, and that could even lead to new treatments for CDGs.
Cleaning Out the Membrane Each Day
Cell membranes are made up of a lipid bilayer that is constantly changing due to the flux of material in and out of the cell.
New Test for Cancer and Diabetes Biomarkers
University of Warwick researchers developed the test to help identify molecules in collagen.
Cooperating Bacteria Isolate Cheaters
Bacteria, which reciprocally exchange amino acids, stabilize their partnership on two-dimensional surfaces and limit the access of non-cooperating bacteria to the exchanged nutrients.

Unified Laboratory Intelligence for Impurity Resolution Management
Bookmark and Share

ACD Labs

Maximizing the effective patent life of a marketed drug is one of the main priorities for researchers. According to a March 2010 article in Nature, the estimated average cost for pharmaceutical companies to bring a new chemical entity (NCE) to market is approximately 1.8 billion and requires 13.5 years on average. Identifying and characterizing an impurity in a couple of days less time can literally equate to a gain of a million dollars in net present value. Being able to do this repeatedly as impurities are encountered through the drug development and acceptance of a drug substance can shave weeks, or even months, off the time to market, increasing returns by millions of dollars.

Unified Laboratory Intelligence (ULI) is a category of R&D informatics that combines software, algorithmic tools, and databases to form a scalable platform for the collection and unification of chemical, structural, and analytical data. ULI accumulates information and knowledge from successive projects across different chemistry disciplines to create a one-to-many chemical intelligence-from-information ‘live’ cycle. With ULI, scientists can easily search and quickly retrieve ‘live’ data to gain and apply intelligence and insight that improves decision-making.
