Metabolomic Platform Reveals Fundamental Flaw in Common Lab Technology
A new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) shows that a technology used in thousands of laboratories, called gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS), fundamentally alters the samples it analyzes.
New Hope for Personalized Treatment of Eczema
Pharmaceutical researchers at Oregon State University have developed a new approach to treat eczema and other inflammatory skin disorders that would use individual tests and advanced science to create personalized treatments based on each person's lipid deficiencies.
Flowing Electrons Help Ocean Microbes Gulp Methane
Recent work at Caltech has shown that microbes work together to consume large amounts of methane released from vents on the ocean floor by using electrons to share energy over long distances.

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.
