This presentation will explore the relevance of soil analysis in forensic science. It will present the use of Morphologically-Directed Raman Spectroscopy (MDRS) and its potential to be a valuable tool for forensic soil analysis due to its non-destructive, automated approach to collecting morphological and chemical information on individual particles. The presentation will include a live demonstration of the Morphologi software, using a simple example to compare soils collected from different Malvern sites around the world. A more detailed forensic example will then be presented which combines MDRS analysis with principal component analysis to distinguish between soil samples collected from four sites along the same road.
Spray drying, which produces a dry powder from a liquid or slurry, is one of the most popularly-used continuous drying processes in which a liquid in the form of an emulsion, wet slurry or suspension is sprayed via a spray nozzle or a rotary atomizer into a drying chamber. The process is used across a range of industries including foods, pharmaceuticals, ceramics and metallurgical powders and produces granules that are highly spherical in shape and have excellent fluidity. In Part 1 of this two part webinar series Preci, a manufacturer of spray drying equipment, will give an overview of the basics of spray drying and its applications
Jeokimya Sempozyumları,2004 yılında jeokimya, maden yatakları, mineraloji ve petrografi konularında çalışan Türk yerbilimciler bir araya gelerek 1. Ulusal Jeokimya Sempozyumunu gerçekleştirdiler. Jeokimya duayenlerinden Prof. Dr. Yılmaz SAVAŞÇIN ve Prof. Dr. Selçuk TOKEL ile organizasyonda büyük emekleri olan Prof. Dr. Şeref GÜÇER ve Prof. Dr. Kadir SARIİZ dışında belki de hiç kimse bu ilk kıvılcımın ileriki yıllarda bir ateş topuna dönüşeceğini beklemiyordu. Öyle ki; 2004, 2006 ve 2008 yıllarında TÜBİTAK BUTAL Bursa Tesisleri, 2010’da Elazığ Üniversitesi, 2012’de Pamukkale Üniversitesi ve son olarak 2014’de Mersin Üniversitesinin ev sahipliği yaptığı sempozyum serisi her seferinde gittikçe artan bir katılıma sahne olmuştur. 2012 yılından itibaren çıta biraz daha yükseltilerek Jeokimya Sempozyumu Uluslararası Katılımlı olarak düzenlenmeye başlanmıştır. Her çift takvim yılında bir araya gelen Jeokimyacıları 2016 yılında ise Ankara Üniversitesi ağırlayacaktır. Bu defa hedef biraz daha yükseltilerek, sempozyum için daimi bir web sitesi oluşturulması ve hatta elektronik formatta ilk Jeokimya Dergisinin çıkarılması amaçlanmıştır. Görüldüğü gibi, kıvılcım sonraki yıllarda genç araştırmacıların taşıyacağı bir meşaleye dönüşecektir.

Demonstrating bioequivalence (BE) for complex generics such as nasal spray suspension drug products is a challenging task. Sponsors not only have to consider device requirements but also understand the properties of the API in the presence of functional excipients. The process of achieving equivalence to the reference listed drug product is therefore complex. In this presentation we explore the requirements for BE and the application of in vitro techniques for API and formulation characteristics. A systematic approach for measuring and assessing the API particle size changes within the formulation will be discussed, alongside the link these measurements have to API solubility and bioavailability. We also explore how the formulation and device interact through considering the force required to actuate during dose delivery. Together, these analytical methods facilitate the determination of critical material and process attributes that may affect drug product quality. As part of the presentation we will reference research carried out during the development of a generic mometasone furoate product.
This webinar focuses on the specific application of sky spectral radiance.
“The illumination and appearance of the solar/skydome is critical for many applications in computer graphics, computer vision and daylighting studies. Unfortunately, physically accurate measurements of this rapidly changing illumination source are difficult to achieve, but necessary for the development of accurate physically-based sky illumination models and comparison studies of existing simulation models.” (Kider et al., 2014)
In this webinar you will learn:
- How to better measure spatial and temporal aspects changing over time, allowing for early evaluation in the design process for control of “smart buildings”
- Methods for simulating and validating spectral skylight for clear and cloudy days
- An example creating for more accurate simulated skies using a custom sky scanner.
Panelist: Dr. Joe Kider is a Research Associate working at the Program of Computer Graphics at Cornell University. He received his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. Joe’s research focuses on the interdisciplinary digital design of sustainable architecture. He works on advanced numeric simulations that calculate a building’s daylighting behavior, thermal performance, and material properties.
A comprehensive overview of the measurements and analyses available with PANalytical's multipurpose X-ray diffractometers and software solutions.
This webinar will focus on the development and application of a new X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique for in situ / in operando measurements of lithium ion batteries. Using hard X-radiation (e.g. Mo) the sample battery cells can be set up in transmission geometry. This type of X-ray source offers enough penetration depth to allow measurement of thin pouch or coffee bag type battery cells, which are commonly used in laboratories as prototype cells for mass production and are therefore of great interest to be studied without cell tampering. The method is shown in an example of an aging study on graphite // LiNMC cells cycled at different cutoff voltages and temperatures.
Guest Panelist: Stefan Seidlmayer studied Chemistry at the University of Regensburg. During his PhD in solid- state chemistry the research focus was synthesis, crystal structure determination and structure relationships in hexachalcogenohypodiphosphate compounds (2009). In 2010 he switched to a temporary position in quality control at Umicore AG in Rheinfelden as ICP-OES lab leader. Later he joined Mühlbauer Company in Roding as a process and product developer in the ‘Cards & Tecurity’ department. In 2012 he returned to university at the neutron research institute Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching for research in the field of lithium-ion batteries.
Co-panelist: Fabio Masiello studied Physics at the University of Turin (Italy), followed by a PhD in Physics and Material Science obtained from the Universities of Grenoble and Turin while working at the ESRF. Fabio then joined PANalytical in 2011 as application specialist XRD, in Almelo (the Netherlands). Since 2012 he is the product manager responsible for the Empyrean diffractometer.
The area of fine and ultrafine bubble technology has seen great advancements over the last few years. Ultrafine bubble water has become used in a great deal of cleaning processes (salt, oil, dirt) and also finds uses in hydroponics, ozonation of water and foods. Microbubbles are potentially good ultrasound contrast agents. This webinar will outline the many different industries that ultrafine and fine bubbles are used in, how they are characterised and also cover the international standardisation that is currently underway. It is intended to serve as a good introduction to the sector for those people new to the area.
• Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) was used to study the diffusion of silica nanoparticles functionalized with different polymers in aqueous solutions of water-soluble polymers and in dispersions of porcine gastric mucin
• It was found that the diffusivity of nanoparticles is affected by their dimensions, medium viscosity, and specific interactions between nanoparticles and macromolecules in solution. Strong attractive interactions such as hydrogen bonding were found to hamper diffusion.
• This study demonstrated that decoration of nanoparticle surfaces with poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline) or poly(ethylene glycol) enhances their ability to travel through mucus. The diffusion results generated by NTA were in good agreement with the data on the permeation of these nanoparticles through ex vivo porcine stomach mucus.

Prefilled syringes are often used for packaging and delivery of therapeutic proteins. But the silicone oil lubricant can cause protein aggregation and promote adverse immunogenicity. In this presentation, data on these two topics will be summarized. In addition, the mechanism for silicone oil-induced protein aggregation will described, and formulation approaches to mitigate protein aggregation will be highlighted. Finally, the problems of analyzing samples that contain both protein particles and silicone oil droplets, and the solutions to these problems afforded by the unique data available from the Archimedes instrument, will be addressed.
