Niagara Falls, Canada-based ColdBlock Technologies has developed an innovative product that performs sample digestion for trace metals analysis with significant improvements in speed, safety and cost over existing technologies.
Rather than the “traditional” method that involves heating digestion tubes in graphite blocks with conducted heat, ColdBlock’s solution uses focused, short wave infrared radiation (FSWIR) to heat sample solutions.

Being my first attendance at
Is there a better solution for light-sensitive biologics? Although all biologics are light sensitive to some degree, the lipids and proteins within these biologics can be particularly susceptible to UV degradation and denaturing. For the most part, amber borosilicate glass bottles have been used to store light-sensitive biologics. But there
By Eric Isberg - VP of Life Sciences Savillex Life Sciences Success: 10 Years in the Making You’ve probably heard the old cliche about “an overnight success…years in the making.” For our Purillex® brand of life science products, and the incredible growth surge we experienced in 2021, it has felt like
Container integrity is critical to product protection Testing for container integrity is key to ensuring containers are leak-free and can protect the critical process solutions and final products they contain. This testing is even more important in aseptic processes. That’s because container integrity can not only affect product sterility, but
Creating contamination-free life science containers Container cleanliness is important for many life sciences applications. In fact, being simply “clean” isn’t enough. Containers need to be completely aseptic, meaning they are “free of contamination from bacteria, viruses or other microorganisms.” Although sterilization processes like autoclaving and gamma irradiation can help eliminate
The Case for Jars in Tissue Processing In tissue processing and transplantation, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine, there’s a growing demand for appropriate-quality containers that can be used from R&D all the way through to product commercialization. Quite often, containers used during the R&D phase are made from laboratory-grade materials
