The emerging global shift from pharmaceutical drugs to biopharmaceuticals and its impact on human life and bio-business clearly underlines the dynamic and self -evolving nature of Lifesciences. But the real challenge for us would be to comprehend the possibilities of this change and ride them into the future. It is this very challenge that is the focus of BioAsia 2013, the 10th edition of one of the most awaited, successful and broad-spectrum global platform on Biotechnology and Lifesciences.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced two new solvent delivery systems-Accela 600 HPLC and Accela 1000 U-HPLC. These enable rapid method development, reduce solvent consumption and consequently, enhance laboratory efficiency. These Accela systems' Force Feedback Control (FFC) features render accurate and precise gradients under all operating conditions and flexibility to quaternary solvent delivery.
