Through Container Pharmaceutical Raw Material Verification: Introducing a New Handheld Raman Solution from Agilent
This webinar is a world first opportunity to see Agilent's new handheld Raman solution for true through-container raw material verification. The system verifies raw material identity through unopened transparent and non-transparent packaging, testing more containers for the same cost by reducing the need for sampling. Incoming goods can be tested quickly in the warehouse on receipt, reducing operator time and sample-handling booth usage.

The system is the first handheld Raman instrument to incorporate Agilent’s spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) technology for fast ID of incoming goods through opaque containers. The combination of SORS and conventional Raman spectroscopy maximizes compatibility with a wide range of packaging–from clear glass vials and plastic bags to opaque plastics and paper sacks. A range of container/material combinations will be presented.

Automated Delay Time Calibration For LC-UV And MS Peak-Based Fraction Collection
Why is my recovery low? Could it be that I am not collecting what I think I am? To maximize recovery while performing peak-based fraction collection, it is important to calibrate the preparative system to account for the delay time—the time a compound needs to travel between the point of detection and the fraction collector. One common practice for accomplishing this is to use a dye that can be followed thorough the flow path and timed with a stopwatch—a procedure that can be extremely tedious and inaccurate. Agilent has greatly simplified delay calibration in OpenLab CDS Chemstation. This webinar will demonstrate the use of the built-in delay calibration wizard that works hand-in-hand with a Fraction Delay Sensor (FDS), present on all Agilent InfinityLab Fraction Collectors.

Does your Instrument Have a Pulse: A discussion of Innovations in UV-Vis Instrumentation
All UV/Vis spectrophotometers require a light source. Previously, UV-Vis spectrophotometer had two continuum lamps, a deuterium lamp(D2) for the Uv range and a tungsten (Tu) lamp for the visible range. More recently, a single pulsed Xenon (Xe) lamp has replaced the aforementioned lamps. This has led to greater capabilities but not all Xe lamps are the same. The common advantages versus the D2 and Tu technical differences will be discussed and what applications they affect. These differences will include pulse flash rate, photobleaching, room light immunity, response time, data collection rate, lamp profile, and scan speed.

Getting Off to a Good Start: Preparative Method Development Strategies
When developing an analytical HPLC method, our goal is the identification and quantitation of a compound of interest. To achieve this goal we optimize parameters like baseline resolution, peak symmetry and peak width. But in preparative HPLC method development, our goal is the separation and isolation of a valuable compound. The analytical chromatographic parameters become less important—throughput, yield and purity of the compound are the more important parameters for preparative HPLC. In this webinar, we will discuss the process of scaling up from an analytical to a preparative HPLC method. We will look at some key parameters and calculations as well as column and instrumentation considerations.

21 CFR Part 11 Compliant Instruments

21 CFR Part 11 is a regulation that defines the criteria for ensuring trustworthy and reliable electronic records and electronic signatures in computerized systems of FDA regulated pharmaceutical industries. It is only meaningful for instruments connected to a computer and using software. Several companies from the pharmaceutical industry have recently asked for 21 CFR Part 11 certification for instruments not connected to a PC, just using the instruments' firmware. Please watch why experts state, that electronic records on instruments bare significant regulatory risks and concepts offered in the market that look like a feasible workaround are rather dangerous because they may result in a data loss and even worse scenarios.

The webinar includes an interview with Bob McDowall, a renowned expert for computer validation in regulated environments. Find suggestions for a more secure and automatic dataflow solution with LabX according to 21 CFR Part 11 or "Annex 11".

How to Minimize Contamination and Carry Over Issues on ICP-MS
Techniques and tools for improved wash out of “sticky” elements, such as B, Tl, and Hg, on an Agilent ICP-MS will be discussed.  An understanding where the individual elements stick in the instrument aids in the chemistry and the sequence of rinse solutions used for their removal.  Use of the Pre-emptive rinse and Intelligent Rinse features within the MassHunter software greatly improve washout of these sticky elements.  Features and setup of an Integrated Sample Introduction System (ISIS) also reduce carry over of these elements. Eliminating contamination increases the probability that accurate sample results can be obtained.  Sources of common lab contaminants and methods used for their elimination will also be discussed. A semi-Cool plasma technique may be discussed to demonstrate how to calibrate and obtain somewhat lower levels of alkali metals in the presence of their interferences.

Discover a Simple Imaging Workflow for Microplastic Analysis and Identification
Microplastics have recently been recognized as significant environmental pollutants, owing to their widespread presence and potential to inflict destructive impact on food, air, and water. Unfortunately, there are no standard methods for monitoring and measuring microplastics – and, depending on particle size, the measurement technology will change. For micron-level particles IR microscopes have been deployed, due to the specificity of IR measurements and the technology’s non-destructive nature. However, such measurements can be time consuming, requiring significant expertise to make measurements and reduce data, post collection. Fortunately, Agilent’s proprietary 8700 LDIR Chemical Imaging System makes the workflow extremely easy; anyone can quickly generate high-quality data with a single button click. The microplastics workflow is completely turn-key: particles are identified; pictures of each particle are taken; physical dimensions of each particle are measured, spectra are collected and library matched; and sample statistics are compiled. This presentation will demonstrate Agilent’s microplastics workflow with a live demonstration of analysis of an actual sample.

Native MS of Proteins/Non-covalent Complexes
Mass spectrometry (MS) is emerging as a robust and sensitive technology for the study of protein structure. For intact proteins, mass confirmation and putative post-translational modifications are readily identified using denaturing MS. For studying protein structure or non-covalent complexes, native MS is the preferred approach. Native MS, where protein analysis is performed using a non-volatile salt in aqueous buffer at neutral pH conditions, has recently been used routinely for protein analysis. In a biopharmaceutical environment, native MS helps to characterize mAbs, cysteine-conjugated anti-body drug conjugates or non-covalent complexes. Here we will explore different analytical approaches for native MS, including electrospray ionization (ESI), nanoESI, as well as high throughput methods using standard flow, all coupled to Agilent high resolution Q/TOFs and IM-MS QTOF.

Materials Characterization by Thermal Analysis

Thermal analysis comprises a group of techniques in which a physical property of a substance is measured as a function of temperature whilst the substance is subjected to a controlled temperature program (ICTAC definition of thermal analysis).

Where is thermal analysis used?

Quality control, R&D and failure analysis, are areas to which thermal analysis makes a significant contribution. For example, knowledge of melting and crystallization behavior is important for identifying materials in the plastics industry.

The food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries have many common thermal analysis applications, including the investigation of polymorphism: the property allowing a material to exhibit different crystalline forms. Such knowledge is particularly important for determining shelf life and storage conditions.

The main thermal analysis techniques and what they measure

The most important effects that can be analyzed by DSC are melting point, melting range and melting behavior. DSC is also used to determine the heat of fusion, glass transition, and oxidation stability.

TOA is useful for investigating polymorphic transitions, as well as for separating overlapping effects such as melting and decomposition.

TGA measures mass changes. The main applications of TGA are content determination, thermal stability, decomposition kinetics, and composition analysis.

TMA is normally used to study the expansion, softening or shrinkage of materials and the glass transition. Its unique application is the determination of the Coefficient of Thermal expansion, or CTE.

DMA is used to measure the mechanical behavior and properties of materials. This includes the modulus and damping behavior. It is the most sensitive method for measuring and characterizing glass transitions, Tg and sub-Tg relaxations, in materials.
