Are 20 percent of materials chemistry papers wrong?
Can companies rely on the results of one or two scientific studies to design a new industrial process or launch a new product? In at least one area of materials chemistry, the answer may be yes -- but only 80 percent of the time. The replicability of results from scientific studies has become a majo more
Genetic model identifies primary myelofibrosis outcomes
A group of investigators from Mayo Clinic and multiple academic research centers in Italy have identified a genetic model for predicting outcomes in patients with primary myelofibrosis who are 70 years or younger and candidates for stem cell transplant to treat their disease. The group's findings we more
How good is the measurement method?
The causes of accidents can be diverse, whether it is an explosion in a chemical plant or a fire on a dangerous goods freighter. Prevention starts in the laboratory where chemicals are tested for their hazardous properties. Safety experts, haulage contractors or traders must be able to rely on corre more
Regular testing of spectrophotometers with certified reference materials secures the traceability of measuring results to international standards (e.g. NIST, ASTM). Hellma reference materials for UV/Vis spectroscopy ensure conformity with regulations (Ph. Eur., USP) and provide for highest process t more
Analysis of the DNA Methylation Patterns at the BRCA1 CpG Island
Germ-line alterations of the BRCA1 gene confer a lifetime risk of 40% for ovarian cancers and of 40%-80% for breast cancers. It is likely that BRCA1 acts as a tumor suppressor gene. BRCA1 involvement in breast cancers does not seem to be restricted more
Target Group: Heads of analytical laboratories and coworkers who are responsible or will be responsible in the future for validating analytical methods.
Endotoxin testing continues to be an evolving field. Recently, concerns have arisen that endotoxin might not be detected with the LAL assay in many biologics. As part of the continuing conversation around this issue, the webinar discusses: Composition of plasma and endotoxin limits Overcomi
As products move through development, the regulatory expectations for verification of the methods used to assess the product’s attributes change. Sample numbers and other variables in the verification program are subject to interpretation from ICH Q2(R1) Validation of Analytical Procedures: Text and
