FlowCAT - A Versatile Continuous Flow Reactor System Focusing on Reactions Under Elevated Pressure and/or Involving Heterogeneous Catalysis.
| By HEL Group
An upsurge in catalytic activity, primarily in relation to hydrogenation reactions, is widely recognised in the pharmaceutical and related industries. In the last couple of years, there has also be an increasing interest in flow chemistry, quite new to the pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industry though well established in other sectors, especially petrochemical and refining. This has highlighted the need for a research scale apparatus which enables high pressure flow chemistry to be conducted safely by chemists who are neither specialists in pressure equipment nor flow processes.

Forensic Analysis of an Artificial Sweetener Commonly Employed in Hoax Powder Attacks Using Morphologically Directed Raman Spectroscopy
| By Malvern Panalytical
In the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks, there was an influx of white powder events throughout the United States. A white powder event is when an unknown white powder is received in the post. More often than not, the attacks do not contain any toxic materials and are carried out for the sole purpose of causing terror and damaging infrastructure. Since these attacks, the FBI and US Postal Service have responded to thousands of white powder events.

Functional Imaging Using Computer Methods to Improve Respiratory Drug Development
| By FluidDA
Within the pharmaceutical industry it has become more and more apparent that the cost for the development of new products increases while the number of products that reaches the market declines. One of the causes for this phenomenon is the limited sensitivity of existing lung function tests to detect changes in pulmonary function in an early stage. Therefore within the field of respiratory medicine a consensus is starting to form around the need for new outcome parameters.
