"In Plastico" Research: Who Provides the Best Labware?
In times of remarkable technological advances, we often overlook the products our lab depends upon, plasticware. As scientists, we recognize the versatility plastics offer us in terms of strength, flexibility, safety, and convenience when compared to our once exclusively glass products. Some researchers now suggest the term “in plastico” be added to the life scientist’s lexicon since an increasing amount of research is no longer performed “in vitro”.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Flash Chromatography
Today’s focus will be on flash chromatography, a special type of column chromatography. Flash chromatography is a preparative liquid chromatography method that can quickly and easily separate organic compounds. This technique offers fast results because pressurized gas pushes the solvent through the column of the stationary phase, rather than rely on slower, gravity-based chromatography.  Discuss
Tech Overview - GC/MS
Today’s piece will discuss gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). GC/MS is a technique used to identify components of complex mixtures and determine the molecular weights of the compounds.  Discuss
Ion Chromatography
Ion chromatography allows for the separation of anions and cations in an ionic solution. The mobile phase consists of an ionic solution, which runs through the stationary phase, a column packed with ion exchange resin.  Discuss
New Research Products Abound in the First Half of 2018
We’re approximately half way through 2018, and the members of The Science Advisory Board continue to help drive innovation by sharing their opinions on new product concepts presented to them by the corporate sponsors of many of our studies. … Read more  Discuss
Tech Overview - Low Pressure Liquid Chromatography
In our latest Tech Overviews article, we will discuss low-pressure liquid chromatography (LPLC) systems. Both types of chromatography separate components of a mixture by exploiting physical and chemical characteristics of the components present in the mixture. Like other types of chromatography, LPLC contains a mobile phase and a stationary phase.  Discuss
Tech Overview – Supercritical Fluid Chromatography
Supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) is one of the few “green” purification technologies in the research space today. The method is unique in that a supercritical fluid is used as the mobile phase. This is a substance that has been both compressed and heated beyond its critical point, and thus a distinct liquid or gas phase does not exist; instead it is a supercritical fluid. The fluid is unique in that it has the high density of a liquid but the low viscosity of a gas. Read on to learn more!  Discuss
Tech Overview – Thin Layer Chromatography
Check out the next piece in our series on chromatography. This week, we take a look at thin layer chromatography (TLC). This method was introduced in the 1950’s as a fast, easy, and inexpensive method for qualitative analysis in laboratories across the globe.  Discuss
