Online Monitoring of In-Process Samples

Waters Applies Its UPLC Technology to Obtain QC Results on the Biomanufacturing Floor

  • The Patrol UPLC Process Analyzer increases the efficiency of the manufacturing process in a number of ways:

    • It reduces production cycle times by using online and/or at-line measurements and controls
    • In-process materials are managed more efficiently
    • Product variability is identified during manufacturing
    • Rejects, scrap, and reprocessing are reduced
    • The possibility of real-time release is closer
    • It increases automation to improve operator safety and reduce human errors

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
