Marketing and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales also increased as a result of the inclusion of the Company's newly-acquired chromotography
and research products business in the Company's financial results.
Our second quarter results, however, were below our goal for improved financial performance due to increased legal expenses, expenditures in connection with the substantial completion of the last major phase of the Company's management information system conversion, and by planned operating losses at our newly- acquired chromotography
and research products business.
The book details the analysis of saturated, mono-unsaturated, and poly-unsaturated fatty acids by gas chromotography
, reviews available approaches for mycotoxin analysis, summarises the development of fibre analysis, vitamin analysis, examines techniques developed for the analysis of naturally occurring toxins in food, presents an overview of analytical methods for the major classes of pesticide residues, and focuses on the primary classes of toxins formed as a result of normal food processing and preparation.
media company, until May 1999, at which time the Company strategically refocused its business on the development and commercialization of microspheres for medical applications.
Stark Thompson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Life Technologies, stated: "We believe the acquired process chromatography business, comprised of a competitive line of industrial chromotography
media, a modern manufacturing and research facility, an experienced technical and sales organization and a strong portfolio of patents, will complement Life Technologies' current product offering to commercial bioprocessing customers.
A strong technical program, designed by Genetic Engineering News, will provide research scientists, engineers, and other industry professionals with the latest information on topics ranging from fermentation and cell culture processes to bioreactor design, and bioprocessing - including cloning strategies, liquid chromotography
and vector design.
Patteson will oversee the Company's commercial operations for manufacture of its Biotage(TM) chromotography
systems and products for the purification of high- value drugs and biologicals.
He introduces separation process engineering, including describing mass transfer and problem-solving methods, then covers flash distillation, column distillation and its internal stage-by-stage balances, multicomponent distillation, its exact calculating procedures and its approximate shortcut methods, complex distillation methods, batch distillation, staged and packed column designs, economics and energy conservation, absorption and stripping, immiscible extraction, washing, leaching, supercritical extraction, mass transfer analysis, membrane separation processes, chromotography
, and ion exchange.
In the second quarter the Company shipped to a major biotechnology company a large scale order for HyperD(TM) chromotography
media as well as received several orders for large scale chromatography systems.
The Sepralac(TM) process uses the Company's patented radial flow chromotography
technology to separate dairy whey into its component proteins.
Along with a history and overview of pharmacogenomics, topics of individual papers include transfection assays with allele-specific constructs, a snapshot of the allele-specific variation in human gene expression, oligo microarrays as analysis tools, genotyping methods selection, high- performance liquid chromotography
, pyrosequencing of clinically relevant polymorphisms, advanced mass spectrometry, florescence-based fragment size analysis, and single-nucleotide polymorphism genotyping in DNA pools.
Unlike other forms of chromatography, separations using Perfusion Chromatography typically are 10-1,000 times faster than conventional liquid chromotography
