Difficult Samples? Simply Separated! TLC/HPTLC for Rapid Quantitative Results in Food & Beverage

Sept. | 2016
  • Presenter: Petra Lewits, Global Product Manager, Thin Layer Chromatography
  • Abstract

    This webinar presents today’s possibilities to achieve rapid quantitative results using Thin-Layer-Chromatography (TLC). TLC/HPTLC (High-Performance Thin-Layer-Chromatography) enables the parallel separation of many samples, leading to separation times per samples of seconds with almost no need for time consuming and costly sample preparation.

    In addition, the specific visualization of compounds according to their chemical nature with different derivatisation reagents and the combination with Mass Spectrometry enables a correct and precise identification and quantification of compounds in very complex samples. TLC is the most cost-effective method for rapid quantitative results in Food & Beverage supporting a high level of quality and safety on products we eat and drink.

Coupling Thin Layer Chromatography to Mass Spectrometry: A combination of two powerful analytical methods

June | 2015
  • Presenter: Michael Schultz, Head of Instrumental Analyics R&D
  • Abstract

    The surge in interest of coupling thin layer chromatography (TLC) with mass spectrometry (MS) is due to the availability of commercial instruments that make the routine use of this technique possible. By coupling the advantages of TLC, such as the ability to separate many samples in parallel and the high matrix tolerance of this technique with MS, the TLC-MS becomes a powerful tool in the modern analytical environment. Attendees of the webinar will learn which instruments are available, how to ensure reliable results with the technique, and through the presentation of application examples, what additional value the technique can provide.



Complete Solutions for Dissolution Testing - Monograph Methods for Tablets and Capsules

May | 2015
  • Presenter: Patrik Appelblad, Ph.D., Application Team Manager - Instumental Analysis, Advanced Analytics
  • Abstract

    Dissolution testing is an integral part of the drug development lifecycle. The goals of dissolution testing change as the drug moves through the different stages of development. The effectiveness of different drug dosage forms relies on the drug dissolving in a predictable manner prior to absorption into the body. It is also important to optimize the drug's bioavailability over time and deviations from expected dissolution profiles mean that treatment could be either ineffective or dangerous to the patient.

    In this webinar you will learn about dissolution testing using a few selected formulated small molecule drugs as examples. The application examples follow the current USP 37 - NF32 monographs and are all compliant with USP 38 - NF33 and the given suitability requirements. In addition to the application examples, the important role of filtration will be discussed in relation to dissolution testing, along with an examination of what changes are possible to the monograph methods.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    • Basics of dissolution testing using small molecule drugs as examples
    • The role of filtration in dissolution testing
    • What changes are possible to the monograph methods on dissolution testing

Trouble-Free HPLC Analysis of Creams and Lotions: Beautiful Separations of Beauty Products

April | 2015
  • Presenter: Dr. Egidijus Machtejevas, Senior Product Manager INstrument Analytics, HPLC, Lab Solutions, Advanced Analytics
  • Abstract

    Matrix rich samples such as creams, lotions and lipsticks present analytical challenges.

    Monolithic silica columns can be of great benefit when dealing with samples like these. In contrast to conventional particle-packed columns, monolithic silica columns are made of a continuous piece of high purity porous silica. High permeability and porosity of the silica skeleton and the resulting low backpressure allow for more flexible flow rates compared to particulate columns. This enables high throughput and robust analysis without loss of separation efficiency or peak capacity — even for relatively “dirty” samples.

    In this web seminar, we will demonstrate the benefits of using monolithic silica columns, illustrating those benefits with the numerous experimental data and detailed application examples on a variety of “creamy” sample types.
