Free webinar: Focus on battery research with X-ray diffaction
Crystalline phase analysis of Li-ion battery electrode materials Malvern Panalytical, a global leader in high-performance analytical instrumentation and materials analysis solutions, announces their free webinar on how crystallographic analysis using X-ray diffraction (XRD) can be used to analyze critically important parameters in cathode and anode materials, on August 19, 2019. The development of new, highly efficient battery materials requires in-depth understanding of materials stability and reversibility upon charge discharge cycling. Materials stability at high charging voltages is largely governed by the underlying crystalline phase. XRD is a widely used analytical technique to investigate crystalline phases, crystallite size and crystalline disorders, which play an important role in the development of high-quality battery materials. During our next webinar we will show how crystallographic analysis using XRD can be used to analyze critically important parameters in cathode and anode materials, like chemical composition and

A Brief Introduction to Drug Repositioning
A Brief Introduction to Drug Repositioning
The exploitation of new use of old drugs is also called the repositioning, reanalysis or redevelopment of drugs. It is a strategy to develop new uses in addition to the existing indications of drugs that have been approved or studied. This strategy has multiple advantages over development of new drugs. First, it can reduce the risk of failure compared with new drug development, because the reused drugs have been fully verified by animal models and humans in early clinical trials. Secondly, the drug development cycle is shortened, because most of the preclinical trials, safety evaluation, and even formulation development have been completed. Thirdly, the costs in the drug candidate development stage and process are greatly reduced. Statistics show that the average cost of reusing old drugs from clinical to marketing is about US$300 million, and that of a new drug is about US$2 billion to US$3 billion. In addition, the repositioning of old drugs may reveal new targets

Application of PEG In Click Chemistry What`s the application of PEG in click chemistry
Application of PEG In Click Chemistry
What`s the application of PEG in click chemistry Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a biocompatible, synthetic, hydrophilic polyether compound that has many applications, mostly in the medical industry, but also in the chemical and industrial sectors. The synthesis of PEG is done by polymerizing ethylene oxide, the main ingredient in antifreeze, using a ring-opening technique, which allows for PEGs of a range of molecular weights and molecular weight distributions to be constructed. This range in weights is what makes it suitable for several uses. Click chemistry is a method for attaching a probe or substrate of interest to a specific biomolecule, a process called bioconjugation. The possibility of attaching fluorophores and other reporter molecules has made click chemistry a very powerful tool for identifying, locating, and characterizing both old and new biomolecules. Click Chemistry has been widely used in bioconjugation, biolabeling and material sciences in pharmaceutical and biotech industry. It refers to a group

CleanBoy® - Cleanest air in the smallest space
CleanBoy® as a cost-effective and portable clean room alternative A clean environment - i.e. free of particles and germs - plays an increasingly important role in various branches of industry such as the food industry, refinement, packaging as well as in science and research. Particularly in working areas where airborne dust particles can lead to manufacturing defects or poor quality and thus financial losses during the processing of products, it consequently seems necessary to set up clean rooms whose purchase and maintenance are associated with high costs. However, it is often not necessary to build such costly and technically complex rooms - it is often just sufficient to create clean room conditions for a certain sub-area only. Spetec`s cleanroom technology aims to remove particles with a diameter of 0.12 µm and larger in the narrowest of spaces, where the highest cleanliness standards must ensure a reliable process flow. Spetec`s mobile, ready-to-use cleanroom devices can be used in particular for the assembly or storage of

Planetary mill mpp 1-4 Vibrotechnik
Planetary mill mpp 1-4 Vibrotechnik
Vibrotechnik presents the planetary mill MPP 1-4. This equipment is designed for the simultaneous comminution of four samples with a volume of up to 45 cm3 each, the total volume of crushed samples is up to 180 cm3. The mill is produced by Vibrotechnik according to the design documentation and under the supervision of its developer Vladimir Kochnev. In the MPP 1-4 planetary mill, grinding occurs due to abrasion - simultaneous deformation of compression and shear, as well as impact destruction by the balls. Milling product particles size depends on the time of comminution, the physical properties of the material, the volume of samples loaded, and the number of balls used. A new class of equipment will allow milling materials of increased hardness, as well as reducing the size of the product up to 1 μm, which opens up opportunities for Vibrotechnik to enter a new segment of laboratory equipment market.

A Flu Drug Baloxavir Marboxil Can Reduce Spread Within Households Baloxavir Marboxil Can Reduce Flu Spread
A Flu Drug Baloxavir Marboxil Can Reduce Spread Within Households
Baloxavir Marboxil Can Reduce Flu Spread A single dose of the flu drug baloxavir marboxil can reduce the spread of the illness within households, new research concludes. A study examining 752 household contacts of 545 patients with the flu found that flu infections were much less common in household members who received the drug than among those who received a placebo. Only 1.9% of uninfected household contacts who took a single dose of baloxavir marboxil came down with the flu, compared with 13.6% of those who received the placebo. "This trial established that baloxavir, if taken within a day or so after exposure, is highly effective for preventing influenza illness in households, a high-risk setting for virus transmission," said researcher Frederick G. Hayden, MD, of the University of Virginia School of Medicine. "The findings indicate that baloxavir prophylaxis should prove effective for prevention in other circumstances." A study found that baloxavir marboxil, sold under the brand name Xofluza, was effective

Alfa Chemistry Testing Lab Provides Pharmaceutical Analytical Service
July 14, 2020, New York, USA - Alfa Chemistry Testing Lab announced today that it has recently launched customized pharmaceutical analytical services for companies involved with new drug development. Previously, this testing lab has already released a series of professional analytical testing services like food analytical services, agriculture & crop analytical services, and textile testing services. In the process of pharmaceutical development and production, various factors may affect or lead to final failure of new drug development. For example, pharmaceuticals may develop impurities during their development, transportation and storage stages, which poses risks if administered. Therefore, they must be detected and quantitated via a range of analytical instrumentation and methods, among which, titrimetric, chromatographic, spectroscopic, electrophoretic, and electrochemical and their corresponding methods are most commonly used.

Novel molecular transport media for dual COVID-19 and flu sampling
Safe sample handling and testing for multiple pathogens from one swab EKF Diagnostics has added a novel viral transport media for the safe sample handling and testing of multiple infectious diseases from a single swab to its product range. PrimeStore® MTM (Molecular Transport Medium) is an FDA cleared and CE IVD marked sample collection device which deactivates viruses, including COVID-19, flu A, flu B, HIV and TB. Already proven in the U.S. market, this fully patented device ensures transportation and workplace safety for disease testing programmes, greatly reducing risk of infection to health workers, couriers, and lab technicians. Traditional viral transport media (VTM) were designed for transporting live samples to be cultured and also contain ingredients that inhibit optimal molecular testing. However, modern molecular tests do not require viable virus, but just intact microbial nucleic acids. Molecular testing is now widespread due to its improved performance and turnaround times compared to traditional microbiology testing. In
