At E&L USA Thermo Fisher Scientific will host two plenary talks by experienced E&L scientists. Benton Cartledge, Ph.D. Research Scientist, PPD Laboratory services, will present “Understanding Extractables Profiles Based on the Polymerization Chemistry of Different Materials.” This presentation will focus on butyl rubber, silicone rubber, PET, PBT and polycarbonate. The goal of the presentation will be to provide typical extractables observed from these materials and explain why/how they are formed from the polymerization process.
In addition, Chris Shevlin, Scientific and Educational Affairs Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific, will present “Identification of Polymer Additives Extracted from Single-use Bioreactor Bags.” This workflow has the benefits of sample preparation automation using accelerated solvent extraction and LC HRMS, which can significantly increase sample throughput compared to traditional techniques such as reflux or Soxhlet extraction.
Both are trending topics in the field of E&L and should make for fruitful discussions.
