Jasco and Princeton Chromatography Announce Collaboration
News Jul 22, 2008
JASCO and Princeton Chromatography have announced a new collaboration in the areas of Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC) instrumentation and Supercritical Fluid Chromatography column manufacturing.
JASCO, with U.S. offices in Easton, MD, manufactures both analytical and preparative supercritical fluid chromatography systems. SFC offers an alternative to normal phase HPLC with the advantages of faster separations and extraction, cleaner sample recovery. This technique is especially ideal for chiral and achiral screening. JASCO is the only company to offer a circular dichroism detector with its SFC systems.
Princeton Chromatography is located in Cranbury, NJ and has nearly 15 years in business supplying the chromatography community with both HPLC and SFC columns.

New Ovarian Cancer TargetNews
Researchers have found a prescription drug, Calcitriol, approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of calcium deficiency and kidney diseases, may increase the likelihood of surviving ovarian cancer. This new study opens a potential avenue for treating ovarian cancer. Since Calcitriol is an FDA-approved drug, no additional research is needed before the drug can advance to human clinical trials for ovarian cancer.READ MORE
Novel Microplate 3D Bioprinting Platform for Engineering Muscle and Tendon TissuesNews
There is a strong need for medication that treats age-related degenerative muscle and tendon diseases. A critical bottleneck in the discovery and development of novel drugs for skeletal muscle is the lack of efficient and robust functional in vitro assays for compound screening. Researchers describe the development of a novel screening platform with automated production of 3D muscle- and tendon–like tissues using 3D bioprinting.READ MORE
