Webinar: Gas Safety in Your Laboratory

"Bulk gas supply in the form of liquid nitrogen dewars and cylinders present laboratories with safety risks stemming from the frequent need to handle and manage gas supplies. Laboratory staff are at risk of injury every time they need to move a gas cylinder and a leak from bulk storage can result in the development of a potentially deadly atmosphere.

Flammable gases such as hydrogen present additional risks of fire or explosion, which need to be addressed through safe gas handling, storage and detection in the laboratory, increasing the cost of their use. In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits of using gas generators for your laboratory gas supply in terms of safety, convenience and the potential reduction of overheads compared to cylinders or dewars."

Webinar: Data Reporting, Integrity and Compliance

"To ensure the integrity and compliance of reported data, each laboratory should ensure the process from sampling to reporting is fully controlled. Using technical controls in laboratory informatics solutions is the best way to achieve both data integrity and regulatory compliance. Whilst designing electronic workflows, three principles of laboratory automation must be followed:

1. Data acquisition at the point of origin: Always interface instruments to acquire analytical data

2. Never transcribe data: All data must be transferred electronically between systems using validated processes to avoid making transcription errors

3. Know where data is stored: This may involve location and file naming conventions so that data can be retrieved easily for audit or inspection quickly and easily

Data process mapping should be used to identify vulnerabilities in the process and well as process inefficiencies and by using the three automation principles above, the vulnerabilities can be eliminated as well as ensuing data integrity and regulatory compliance is achieved. This results in a more efficient and effective process. Further examples upon the approaches involving sample preparation and chromatographic analysis will also be discussed."

Webinar: Leveraging Automated Science To Drive Digital Transformation in the Laboratory

"Organizations, across all scientific industries, are assessing their digital transformation journey to try and map out the key strategies to achieving a fully digitally enabled laboratory. The key to creating and implementing a digital strategy is determining where efficiencies can be made and where technologies can provide a competitive edge.

Laboratory automation provides the time and space for laboratories to focus on innovations and improvements to support real-time results, which is crucial to their overall success. Automated science – through digital solutions, lab automation, and artificial intelligence - is critical to accelerating laboratory productivity and unlocking innovation.

In this webinar, Trish Meek, Director of Marketing at Thermo Fisher Scientific, will look at driving digital transformation by leveraging automation in the lab."

Webinar: Essential Analytical Tools for a Premium Cannabis Extraction Facility

"The cannabis oil market continues to grow at a rapid pace, as many operators are investigating new and improved vehicles for cannabis consumption. Creating high quality cannabis oils that stand out in this expanding market requires great attention to detail; choosing the right equipment for extraction and purification, and closely monitoring cannabinoid content throughout the purification and formulation process, are essential components to ensuring elevated product quality and integrity. Further, characterizing extraction efficiencies, monitoring purification accuracy, and verifying concentration targets for derived products empowers companies to maximize their time and profits.

In this session, Waters Corporation and Thar Process will share insights regarding the best analytical tools for cannabinoid characterization and how they are implemented in a premium cannabis extraction facility."
