Why Does a Simple Molecule Require Such High Quality?

Sept | 2017
  • Presenter: Anastasia Domanov, Marketing Manager, Western Europe, Millipore SAS, France
  • Abstract
    LC–MS instrumentation allows very sensitive analysis but requires high quality reagents, solvents, and ultrapure water. Join this webcast to learn about contaminants present in laboratory water and their effects on applications, as well as different modern water purification solutions that can be tailored for your specific experimental needs.

Selecting the Right Water Quality for Modern Diagnostic Lab Applications

March | 2017
  • Presenter: Anastasia Domanov, Global Scientist, Lab Water Application Group, Millipore SAS, France
  • Abstract
    Today, activities of diagnostic laboratories are expanding far beyond classical areas such as immunochemistry, biochemistry, clinical microbiology, and histology to also address issues in toxicology or therapeutic drug monitoring. This growth is characterized by successful adaptation of various analytical platforms for analyses of hormones, drugs of abuse, biogenic amines, neonatal screening, etc. New techniques not only enable measurement of multiple complex analyses simultaneously with a very high level of sensitivity and robustness, but also establish new requirements for analyses with regard to process control, operator expertise, and reagent quality.

    Since water is a main reagent in many analyses, its purity plays a critical role in performing these analyses in a rapid and reliable manner. This webcast will discuss water quality requirements for various diagnostic platforms and share technical recommendations for avoiding the effects of water contamination on results. In the interest of traceability, a modern solution for data management and monitoring will also be discussed.

Best Practices to Reduce Water Contamination in Your Chromatography Analysis

April | 2016
  • Presenter: Anastasia Khvataeva-Domanov, Global Application Engineer, Merck
  • Abstract
    The quality of the ultrapure water you use for your HPLC, LC-MS, and LC-MS/MS analyses plays a critical role in the accuracy of your results. Any contamination present in the water used in your HPLC and LC-MS mobile phase, for the preparation of samples, standards and blanks, and for instrument cleaning, will affect your analyses.

    In this webinar, our speaker will discuss best practices in performing reliable HPLC and LC-MS analyses.

    Watch the webinar to learn:
    • How to identify water contaminants, and their sources, in ultrapure water
    • The effects of water contaminants on HPLC and LC-MS analyses
    • Best laboratory practices for ultrapure water handling for HPLC and LC-MS
    • How to select water purification solutions for your application needs and instrumentation

Pharma Labs: Getting the Most Out of Your Lab Water Solution

April | 2015
  • Presenters: Anastasia Khvataeva, Application Support Scientist, Lab Water, Merck and Dr. Federico Dorati, Global Product Manager, Services Operation, Lab Water Business Field, Merck
  • Abstract
    High purity water is one of the main reagents in pharmaceutical laboratories and its quality plays a critical role in successful analyses. Any contamination present in water may interfere with measured analytes, contaminate the instrument, and finally compromise the analytical data — and also result in time wasted repeating analyses and cleaning/troubleshooting analytical instruments. To avoid these issues, the ultrapure water used in any pharmaceutical lab must be of high and constant quality with a minimum level of contaminants detrimental to analyses.

    Thus, the practical aspects of ultrapure water quality will be highlighted during this session. In particular, specific characteristics that determine water of high quality, as well as aspects related to water handling in the lab will be discussed in detail with respect to pharmaceutical applications.

    Pharmaceutical Quality Control laboratories must comply with complex and evolving regulatory guidelines. This webcast will provide the audience with everything they need to know in order to make sure that their lab water purification system is compliant with the guidelines issued by global regulatory bodies.

    Overall, this webcast may help scientists working in the pharmaceutical industry to critically evaluate their current lab water purification solution and discover the optimal solution for their particular needs.

Solutions for Mass Spectrometry - Tips, Tricks and Applications

Dec. | 2014
  • Presenter: Dr. Stephan Altmaier, Head of Application Laboratory HPLC-MS, Advanced Analytics, Merck
  • Abstract
    Dr. Stephan Altmaier will identify factors contributing to a potential LC-MS contamination, such as solvents or additive purity and will also describe the interactions of impurities with analytes (ion suppression, adduct formation) and their influence on system performance, sensitivity and limit of detection. This webinar will be of interest to anyone working with mass spectrometry who is interested in increasing system performance. The webinar will help you keep your MS clean and improve system performance, in terms of sensitivity and LOD.

Don't Overlook the Water Quality in Your LC-MS Application

Dec. | 2014
  • Presenter: Dr. Anastasia Khvataeva, Application Support Scientist, Lab Water, Merck
  • Abstract
    Dr. Anastasia Khvataeva will describe the importance of water quality in LC-MS applications, focusing on water contaminants and how these contaminants affect LC-MS analyses in specific applications for work in the Environmental, Biomedical and Pharmaceutical sectors. Dr. Khvataeva will also provide tips and tricks to ensure ultrapure water quality throughout the entire analytical process, and will focus on the importance and the benefits of water quality online monitoring, including new features like Millitrack® e-Solutions.

Water Purification Solutions for Analytical Labs and why it is not only about Water Needs

July | 2014
  • Presenter: Dr. Anastasia Khvataeva, Application Development Scientist, Merck
  • Abstract
    High purity water is one of the frequently used reagents in any analytical laboratory and its quality plays critical role in successful analyses. Contamination present in regent water may strongly affect analysis by contaminating the instrument and by compromising analytical data. Ultrapure water used in the lab possesses specific characteristics that determine the maximum level of the contaminants destructive for the analytical workflow, thus the practical aspects of ultrapure water handling in the lab, its production and quality will be discussed. Also, taking into account that many laboratories work in regulated environment, modern, available solutions to comply with quality standards and regulations will be highlighted. Overall this seminar may help evaluate your current water solution and find out the best optimal solution with respect to your particular needs.
