Learn More Fatty Acids
A fatty acid is a carboxylic acid with a long, unbranched aliphatic chain. The aliphatic chain may be either saturated or unsaturated. Chains of even-numbered length predominate in nature. In biology, fatty acids are usually derived from triglycerides or phospholipids.
Learn More Biochemicals
Biochemical refer to any chemical that is found in a biological system or that can be used for biological research. Biochemical compounds include molecules such as amino acids, vitamins, and nucleotides as well as organic and inorganic chemicals that have life science applications.

Learn More NMR Applications: Process Control
The quality of a chemical product, such as petroleum, biodiesel or edible oil, is the result of a carefully controlled process. In process control, industrial and chemical engineers continually check various aspects of the health of a process.
Learn More Stable Isotope Analysis
The analysis of the stable isotopes of hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur has widespread applicability in the natural sciences. The natural variations in the relative abundances of these isotopes can provide useful information in a wide variety of applications, such as forensics, food...
Learn More Drinking Water Analysis
Drinking water requires testing for over 90 possible contaminants according to U.S. EPA regulations in the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Using approved analytical methods, scientists in municipal water facilities and contract labs routinely monitor for pollutants such as inorganic anions and...
Learn More GC-MS Sample Preparation
Gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) sample preparation is performed on smaller and more volatile samples including environmental pollutants, industrial byproducts, food contaminants, pesticides, and metabolites of illicit and designer drugs.
The Ideal: The Myths: The Facts: To "freeze" protein interactions in place and time so that they can be characterized temporally and spatially relative to treatment conditions. To stabilize transient complexes and weak interactions for analysis by immunoprecipitation (IP), Co-IP, ChIP, EMSA, Western...
