Agilent Technologies Hosts Anti-Doping Agency Officials
News May 23, 2008
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced that it has hosted the first of three leadership delegations from China’s Anti-Doping Agency, as China prepares for the 2008 Olympic Games.
The meetings include technical training on anti-doping instruments and methods developed by Agilent, a primary supplier of technology to China’s Anti-Doping Agency since 1988.
The China Anti-Doping Agency is one of the largest and most technologically advanced testing facilities in the world; it will examine more than 4,500 samples from athletes during the 2008 Olympic Games.
The agency has equipped its Beijing lab with Agilent liquid chromatography (LC), gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectrometry (MS) instruments to confirm the chemical identity of suspected banned substances found in testing samples.
Agilent is providing 18 LC/MS units and 19 GC/MS units for drug testing at the 2008 Olympic Games.
“China has quickly become a world model for anti-doping efforts,” said Du Lijun, director of China’s Anti-Doping Agency.
“Agilent’s liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry instrumentation will help make China’s Anti-Doping Agency testing in the 2008 Olympic Games the most technologically advanced yet.”
Test For Designer Drugs Could Help Treat Overdose PatientsNews
Medical professionals are scrambling to meet the growing demand for emergency room treatment, but they’re hampered by the lack of a quick and easy test to screen patients for “designer” drugs. Chemists have now developed such a test and are refining it with the hope that hospitals could eventually use it to choose the appropriate treatment.READ MORE
New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
