Agilent, CambTEK Announce LC Sample Prep Agreement
News Feb 26, 2014
Used together, these laboratory solutions provide analytical researchers in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries with powerful tools to increase the speed and efficiency of laboratory workflows and maximize the quality of their results.
"Continuing advancements in analytical technology are enabling faster, more robust analysis capabilities in the laboratory, but work is getting trapped in the bottleneck of the sample preparation workflow," said Christian Gotenfels, Agilent's senior product manager for liquid chromatography. "By offering a combined solution for liquid chromatography sample preparation, our complementary technologies will enable analytical researchers to access faster and more robust workflow solutions to achieve higher productivity and data quality."
CambTEK's Rapid Extraction System (RES) is a sample preparation instrument designed for rapid extraction of solid dose forms and gels, with important applications in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food science industries. The RES provides enhanced data quality with increased speed and productivity. It is highly versatile and capable of processing a wide range of sample types, including tablets, powders, capsules, gels/pastes, beads, swabs and stents.
"We are delighted to partner with Agilent to co-market our solutions for the preparation and analysis of solid dosage forms," said CambTEK Chief Executive Officer Dr. Hugh Malkin. "Used together, these technologies will deliver significant benefits to our customers."

This Seed Could Bring Clean Water to MillionsNews
Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering Professors Bob Tilton and Todd Przybycien recently co-authored a paper with Ph.D. students Brittany Nordmark and Toni Bechtel, and alumnus John Riley, further refining a process that could soon help provide clean water to many in water-scarce regions. The process, created by Tilton’s former student and co-author Stephanie Velegol, uses sand and plant materials readily available in many developing nations to create a cheap and effective water filtration medium, termed “f-sand.”READ MORE
Eating Activates Calorie-Burning FatNews
The importance of the human brown adipose tissue (BAT) has become clearer during the past ten years. Coldness is one of the most effective activators of the BAT metabolic function but, in rodents, eating has also been shown to activate BAT. The debate on whether eating has the same effect on humans has lasted for decades. Now, the researchers at Turku PET Centre have proven that having a meal increases oxygen consumption in human BAT to the same extent as coldness.READ MORE
