Important Factors when Buying a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)
| By Malvern Instruments
The physical components and features of a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) instrument and the technical specifications are clearly important to consider when purchasing a new system. However, written specifications can be confusing, misleading and may actually have very little bearing on the actual performance of the instrument. Specifications, on paper, do not necessarily translate into advantages or disadvantages when it comes to making measurements on your samples.

International Product Law Manual
| By Jardine Lloyd Thompson Limited
Jardine Lloyd Thompson Limited (JLT) was delighted to contribute to the recently published 'International Product Law Manual' by Kluwer Law International.
In addition to examining the current insurance environment for life science companies, this chapter will review the recent history of life science insurance and explain how we have got to where we are. It then identifies some of the main players, reviews the procurement process, identifies some typical policy wordings, and gives examples of how coverage can be impacted if attention to detail is not paid. The chapter then explores how claims are managed and set out practical issues to be aware of. Finally, the chapter explores recent developments that might influence the future of product liability insurance for life science companies.

Isothermal Titration Calorimetry: Theory and Practice
| By Malvern Instruments
Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) is an analytical technique that has become the "gold standard" for studying intermolecular interactions. As its name indicates, it is a titrimetric technique, that is, a volumetric laboratory method for quantitative chemical analysis (traditionally intended to determine the unknown concentration of an identified analyte) where a reagent solution, the titrant, is made to react with a solution of analyte or titrand.
