Training Program on General Quality Management Systems organized for trainees from EFMHACA, Ethiopia

Our association with Ethiopian Food, Medicine and Healthcare Administration and Control Authority (EFMHACA) is over 2 years old now. We feel proud to acknowledge the strenthening of our relationship through several training programs on laboratory testing techniques and managerial practices over the period. The recent program was organized on General Quality Management Systems from 3rd […]

Understanding of light dispersing elements in a spectrometer

It is a well-known fact that ordinary white light comprises of a mix of different wavelengths or colours. We are all familiar with the different colours of the rainbow which are in fact different colours comprising white light. White light is seldom used as such in spectroscopic analysis though of visible light source is a […]

Important role of preventive maintenance in smooth functioning of HPLC systems

Preventive maintenance plays a key role in trouble-free operation of laboratory instruments. It is even more critical for instruments that are required to operate round the clock. HPLC is one such instrument which is expected to run continuously in commercial testing laboratories and industries. In pharma and food manufacturing industries quality of products is required […]

Significance of shelf life studies on food products

Foods are an essential requirement for sustenance of life. Primarily foods serve two main objectives. First and foremost is to provide us the energy to carry out our daily activities and secondly to satisfy our taste buds. However, all foods irrespective of their source โ€“ farm harvested or factory produced do not retain their attributes […]

Significance of shelf life studies on pharmaceutical products

Any medicinal product does not remain stable for all time. The potency or strength of the active ingredient drops over a period of time. Visually also formulations change and become discoloured, develop spots, becomes powdery or show other distinct changes so the concern arises as to how long after manufacture the formulation can be used […]

Safe storage practices for chemicals in laboratory refrigerators

Laboratory chemicals are stable only within prescribed temperature limits. High purity chemicals used as reference standards require preservation in low temperatures so that the concentration of active constituent does not change over their prescribed usage life. Flammable liquids also require to be stored under low temperatures so as to prevent formation of explosive vapours over […]

Disposal of Laboratory Samples

Laboratory samples and waste disposal is a specialized practice and requires adherence to prescribed techniques otherwise such waste can lead to environmental hazards.

Understanding differences between solutions, emulsions, colloids and dispersions

Analysis of samples in laboratories more than often requires pre-treatment steps for extraction, isolation, concentration or dilution to measurable concentration ranges. This is generally achieved by dissolving the sample in a suitable solvent. However, the solubility of a compound in a solvent depends on the affinity between the compound and the solvent. Depending on the […]

How you can contribute to make your laboratory green?

To begin with it is clarified that a green lab does not mean that everything in the lab is painted green which includes walls, work benches, reagent bottles, instruments, lab coats, etc. On the other hand a green lab implies a laboratory which follows norms that are environment friendly and there is concern for conservation […]

How are analytical scale and preparative scale HPLC different?

HPLC is a versatile analysis tool that affords separation and quantification of large range of chemical compounds. It finds unlimited applications in basic research, pharmaceuticals, foods, polymers and other similar applications. The availability of numerous columns, stationary phases, mobile phases and detectors makes HPLC a high utility facility in modern laboratories. Analytical scale HPLC is […]
