Thermo Fisher Scientific has opened a global food testing laboratory devoted to helping contain costly and life-threatening chemical contamination crises. The Food Safety Response Center, located in Dreieich, Germany, is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed by world-class chemists who will quickly mobilise to aid governments and businesses facing an unknown food safety threat involving chemical contaminants. One recent threat, the melamine crisis in China, claimed the lives of at least six children, made nearly 300,000 ill and cost companies worldwide billions before it was contained.
Scientists at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry at Queen Mary University of London, have developed a novel mass spectrometry-method of analysing and interpreting cell signalling pathways. This technology enables the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry to identify biomarkers and better select new drugs for diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity and diabetes and help reduce their time to market.
Bruker Corporation has created a Chemical Analysis Division within its Bruker Daltonics subsidiary. The new Chemical Analysis Division will be managed by Collin D'Silva as division president, and will be based in Fremont, CA, USA.
ChemImage will present the results of an ingredient-specific particle sizing (ISPST) study on a combination metered dose inhaler product at Respiratory Drug Delivery (RDD) 2010 (www.rddonline.com). This conference takes place from 25 to 29 April in Orlando, Florida, USA, and covers current biological and pharmaceutical issues related to nasal and respiratory drug delivery.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is providing the Scottish Metabolomics Facility (ScotMet) with technology to advance the field of metabolomics. ScotMet is funded by the Scottish Universities Life Science Alliance (SULSA) and is a state-of-the-art facility run jointly by the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde.
Bruker Energy & Supercon Technologies, Inc. (BEST) has acquired the assets of AIXUV GmbH in
Bruker Corporation and Agilent Technologies have announced that they have entered into a definitive asset purchase agreement. Pursuant to this agreement, Bruker will acquire certain product lines of Varian Inc., which Agilent has committed to divest in connection with obtaining regulatory approval for Agilent's previously announced acquisition of Varian.
AB Sciex has acquired the liquid chromatography business of Eksigent Technologies. This acquisition provides the company with a significant entry into the liquid chromatography market through the ability to provide instrumentation and consumables and to couple them with mass spectrometry instruments to form complete workflow solutions.
