Thermo Fisher Scientific -Free webinar: Thursday, March 28, 2019

Thermo Fisher Scientific

This new webinar on 3D printing explains how it can be used competitively in applications such as aviation, automotive and medical devices.

Companies are turning to 3D printing for the freedom it offers in design, to lower product development costs and to make lighter-weight products. In medical applications, they’re also using it to increase patient comfort.

Yet certain industries such as aerospace and medical devices have stringent requirements that require new high-performance polymers. Marilys Blanchy R&D Project Manager at Rescoll (Société de Recherche) presents two case studies using high-performance compounds to outline strategies for formulation, extrusion, 3D printing and characterization. 

B&W Tek November Newsletter

Advances in Raman throughout the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Process 

The importance of quality control in continuous manufacturing has lead to a rapid increase in the use of Raman spectroscopy. In our latest webinar we explore how Raman spectroscopy is paving the way for innovation in advanced manufacturing techniques, with a presentation by Dr. Douglas Hausner of Associate Director of Rutgers University’s  Engineering Research Center for Structured Organic Particulate Systems (C-SOPS).

New E-Book on the Tools, Techniques and Applications of Raman Spectroscopy

Portable and handheld Raman systems are gradually replacing slow and destructive techniques that have been widely used throughout the pharmaceutical industry. This month, B&W Tek partnered with American Pharmaceutical Review to release a new E-Book highlighting these recent developments in the industry. The E-book features various tools, techniques and applications that use Raman Spectroscopy to perform tasks such as at-line content uniformity, counterfeit detection and raw material identification.

Meet the Team!

Meet Kevin Wu: a seasoned foodie, full time cat dad and the new inside sales administrator at B&W Tek! Kevin is a Delaware native who graduated from Drexel University with a degree in criminal justice. He now uses his 7 years of experience in aviation quality control to give clerical assistance to our account managers and handle logistics for our sales team. It would be an understatement to say that we are excited to have Kevin join the B&W Tek family!

PHI WEBINAR SERIES: Applications of TOF-SIMS Tandem MS Imaging for Industrial Problem Solving

Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) is a powerful analytical technique with submicron spatial resolution, ppm sensitivity, and the ability to detect both elemental and molecular species on surfaces. One limitation of TOF-SIMS is that spectra are often difficult to interpret, especially for real-world industrial samples that have a complex mixture of chemicals on the surface. The TOF-SIMS spectrum contains the fragmentation pattern of all the different molecular species on the surface added together. The recent development of parallel imaging MS/MS has greatly simplified the interpretation of TOF-SIMS spectra. By selecting a single precursor ion from the complex TOF-SIMS spectrum and fragmenting it by collision induced dissociation (CID), the clean and unique fragmentation pattern makes identification easy. Several industrial applications will be discussed that demonstrate how MS/MS greatly extends the analytical capability of the TOF-SIMS technique.
