Join us at Booths 401-404 /406 to learn about Thermo Scientific™ analytical solutions, including molecular spectroscopy, chromatography, mass spectrometry, trace elemental analysis, and laboratory data management. Be sure to attend these technical seminars and get up to date on current analytical issues and techniques.


Technical Seminar
Tuesday, November 15 - Davis Room

Davis Room, Garden State Exhibit Center, Somerset, New Jersey

12:45 PM – Redefine Routine Analysis by Overcoming the Challenges of Semi-Volatile (SVOC) Analysis.

Learn how the Thermo Scientific™ 8270 D Analyzer Kit can ensure method requirements, sensitivity, robustness, and sustainability using a start-to-finish proven workflow. This kit allows labs to capitalize on analyzing more samples per unit of time with significant cost savings while meeting method requirements. These smart innovations enrich the laboratory’s GC-MS SVOC workflow and provide improved performance and productivity. This presentation is ideal for analysts who are seeking new, enhanced capabilities to simplify sample analysis from injection to reporting.

1:45 PM – Preparing Your Lab for USP Chapters <232> and <233>

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) will soon be implementing changes regarding the determination of elemental impurities in drug products sold in the United States. The new guidelines will be a significant change from the current ones, affecting both the maximum allowable limits for elemental impurities, as well as the method for quantifying them. Come see an overview of the new guidelines and learn useful tips for making sure your laboratory is compliant and prepared for the changes to come.

2:15 PM – Unlimited Possibilities: Using Next Generation UHPLC and Column Chemistries to Cross Chromatographic Boundaries

Discover how the separation and detection capabilities of the Thermo Scientific™ Vanquish™ UHPLC platform deliver unsurpassed results. A unique design concept together with hardware and software innovations clearly separate Vanquish from competitive instruments, including method transfer from other systems based on novel hardware capabilities.

2:45 PM – Ion Chromatography for Pharmaceutical Analysis

Ion chromatography (IC) is a well-established technique with increased use in the analyses of impurities, counterions, and excipients in pharmaceutical formulations. IC is one of the instrumental techniques now allowed by the USP for identification tests (USP <191>) and is also the prescribed technique for determining citrate and phosphate in drug products (USP <345>). Analysts value the IC system’s ability to make its own mobile phase by simply adding water, thereby eliminating mobile phase preparation errors and improving intra- and inter-lab reproducibility, as well as the fact that the IC mobile phases rarely contain organic solvents thereby reducing waste disposal costs and exposure to hazardous organic solvents.

This workshop will review:

  • Basic principles of IC including a detailed description of separation and detection options.
  • Representative IC applications for pharmaceutical analysis
  • Steps for developing an IC application for pharmaceutical analysis
