#ALT# Webinar: Solid Form Characterization and Quantification

Companies spend millions to protect their intellectual property after the patent expiration of a drug. This webinar, taking place on December 3, 2019, will explore in-house or synchrotron-based powder X-Ray diffraction for ordered and disordered materials, solid-state NMR (ssNMR) and relaxometry by time-domain NMR (TD-NMR).

Don’t waste time on poor quality data, explore novel solutions for API characterization in this webinar.

A team from the University of Waterloo have developed a direct and fast means of quantifying drug levels in beverages and bodily fluids. Using a new analytical setup – dielectric barrier discharge (DBD), combined with high-resolution mass spectrometry – the team achieved an enhanced dynamic range of detection and lower limits of quantitation, compared to the prevailing techniques.
 
   What are DNA Nanomachines?What are DNA Nanomachines?
 
DNA has very high specificity, so that a particular DNA sequence will always bind to its complementary DNA sequence. This can, therefore, be used to design nanomachines with high specificity by using specific DNA sequences. It is even possible to create branches off a DNA double helix, which makes it possible to create 3D structures.
