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."

Stainless Steel That Is More Resistant to BacteriaNews
Stainless steel is widely used in surgical instruments and implants but over time, implants can be rejected by the body and in unhygienic surgical environments, steel may not adequately resist the accumulation of harmful bacteria. However, scientists have now developed a way to modify the surface of the stainless steel by creating a set of pores at the nanoscale. The improved material could benefit the food and beverage industry as well as medicine.READ MORE
