High-Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) Application and Advantages

HPTLC is the improved method of TLC which utilizes the conventional technique of TLC in a more improved way. It is also known as flat-bed or planar chromatography as the stationary phase used is flatbed like surface. It works on the same principle of separation by adsorption as conventional TLC. The mobile phase or solventContinue reading “High-Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) Application and Advantages”

Root Cause Analysis and Tools Used for RCA- Pharmaceuticals

Root cause analysis is a methodology to find the primary cause of problem, by tracking back the actions which lead to the nonconformance(problem) and helps to solve the problem. Root cause analysis is used to identify the problem. What happened? why it happened? and then to determine, what improvements or changes are required to overcomeContinue reading “Root Cause Analysis and Tools Used for RCA- Pharmaceuticals”

Light intensity for Pharmaceutical Area

Lighting at work is very important to the health and safety of everyone using the workplace. Poor lighting can affect the health of the people working in any industry causing headaches, eye strain, and migraine. Poor lighting can harm the business in the form of errors in work, absenteeism, and reduced staff efficiency and productivity.Continue reading “Light intensity for Pharmaceutical Area”

IGIB uses mass spectrometer for coronavirus detection — Science Chronicle

IGIB researchers have been able to detect novel coronavirus using mass spectrometer. The detection is based on the presence of two unique peptides of the virus. Sensitivity is 95% and specificity is 100% and takes less than 30 minutes from sample preparation to testing. Using mass spectrometer, researchers at the Delhi-based Institute of Genomics and […]Continue reading “IGIB uses mass spectrometer for coronavirus detection — Science Chronicle”

Friability Testing – Friability of uncoated tablets

Friability (the condition of being Friable) testing is a methodology, that is used to see the physical strength of compressed and uncoated tablets upon exposure to mechanical shock and attrition. In simple words, what quantity of mechanical stress tablets will stand up to throughout their production, distribution, and handling process. Friability testing has become an accepted technology.

Early detection of cancer using a blood test

Blood test is one of the simplest, yet most informative weapons in your doctor’s arsenal. A tiny needle prick and a few millilitres of blood can help doctors 1) evaluate how your body’s vital organs like heart, liver, kidneys and thyroid are functioning, 2) diagnose diseases such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease and communicable diseases […]Continue reading “Early detection of cancer using a blood test”

A case of coronavirus reinfection in Hong Kong confirmed by genome sequencing

Using genome sequencing, researchers at the University of Hong Kong have found a rare instance of reinfection with novel coronavirus for the second time, four-and-a-half months after the first infection. The first viral genome belongs to GISAID clade V, while the second genome belongs to GISAID clade G. Using genome sequencing, researchers at the UniversityContinue reading “A case of coronavirus reinfection in Hong Kong confirmed by genome sequencing”

Children have more coronavirus during early infection phase than hospitalised adults

Researchers found that children infected with novel coronavirus have viral load comparable with adults admitted to ICUs. But during the early infection phase, children can have significantly higher viral load than COVID-19 adults in ICUs. Viral load decreases over time in children. Age of children did not have any impact on viral load. Researchers MassachusettsContinue reading “Children have more coronavirus during early infection phase than hospitalised adults”
