David Dooling, Ph.D., assistant director of informatics at the Genome Institute at Washington University, discusses the challenges associated with tackling vast amounts of data in large sequencing labs and shares his experiences in building and utilizing an advanced LIMS for data tracking and storage.
The establishment of a separate accounting line for environmental, health and safety related purchases is essential. This allows you to clearly track monies expended for this purpose.
In many ways, the development of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner jet plane serves as an object lesson about the hazards of globalization of new product codevelopment and manufacturing. Over many years, Boeing had built its own aircraft design facilities, aircraft manufacturing plants and suppliers in Everett, Washington, near Seattle. That changed with the Dreamliner.
The FDA and other regulatory agencies consider the integrity of laboratory data to be an integral part of the drug manufacturing process. Deficiencies of out-of-specification (OOS) investigations continue to be the major cause of warning letters in the pharmaceutical industry.
A critical component of any sample preparation is making the sample homogeneous. However, when working with a large number of samples, this is often a time-consuming and labor-intensive task.
The goal of homogenization is to process samples quickly and efficiently while maintaining the quality of the end product. A major factor in successful homogenization is the reproducibility of samples.
Today’s laboratories are under ever-increasing pressure to reduce costs and improve the efficiency, productivity and quality of their workflows.
Accurate, high resolution mass spectrometry has grown ever more important in qualitative and quantitative analyses.
The scientific community requires improved methods for performing and analyzing reactions and interactions between fluid components.
The latest equipment, instruments and system introductions to the laboratory market.
Increasing the sensitivity and resolution of LC/MS instruments has been an ongoing focus for instrument manufacturers.
Micro-volume quantification allows for rapid assessment of concentrations of nucleic acid. The Epoch™ Multi-Volume Spectrophotometer System provides the ability to measure a wide range of samples from 2 µL to mL volumes.
CEM has developed a method for the simultaneous and rapid preparation of vastly different food sample types for trace metal analysis.
