Shifting Pharma’s Mindset: Viewing Quality As Value Creator, Not Cost
After a decade of cost cutting in product development and manufacturing, many pharmaceutical companies have struggled to meet basic quality standards. In recent years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has shuttered numerous manufacturing sites and banned a variety of products because of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) violations. As a result, many companies have experienced substantial hits to both their corporate reputation and profitability.

How To Eliminate Heat Effect In Your Fume Hoods
Chemical procedures commonly require the introduction of heat. This is typically in the form of a hot plate or open flame. While the best place to perform these types of chemical procedures is inside a chemical fume hood, most people are unaware of heat’s effect on the airflow through the fume hood, and the potential impact on containment.

Water Purity And Lab Glassware Washers: Just How "Pure" Does It Have To Be?
Water purity supplied to a laboratory glassware washer for rinsing has been the subject of debate in regards to the end result of producing clean glassware. It should be noted that the term ‘deionized water’ does not reference any specific water purity level. The deionization of water produces water within a wide range of purity levels. The deionization process can be used to make medium grade water at 10-20 microsiemens of conductivity, or, it can be used in polishing systems to produce water with a 16-18 megohm resistivity level.
