SAFC Expands PharmaGrade Raw Materials Portfolio for Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing
Sigma-Aldrich's custom manufacturing and services business unit, SAFC, added
more than 25 new raw materials to its portfolio
of PharmaGrade products. Launched earlier this year, the PharmaGrade portfolio is comprised of over 65 high-quality buffers, amino acids, and specialty chemicals, addressing the need for greater supply chain transparency and enhanced risk management for biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

For more information, please visit
PharmaGrade products come with a fully documented production history that highlights consistent and controlled processes compliant with GMP or SAFC ‘Elite’ grade documentation guidelines. All products in the portfolio feature formal manufacturer qualification, quality assurance review and release of every lot, change control notification, as well as quality and regulatory support documentation.
New Small Volume Evaporator
KD Scientific's Centrifan™ PE Evaporator/Concentrator is a low cost, safe, small volume evaporator used to dry solvents directly in the vial, increasing evaporation efficiency in your laboratory.

Proprietary self-generated blow-down technology (SBT) eliminates the potential problems associated with common evaporation systems. Samples are dried in 20 mL scintillation or other common vials, and there is no need for a vacuum pump or a large supply of blow-down gas. This protects samples from loss and captures toxic vapors and materials in a closed system.

The Centrifan PE saves time by drying samples without the monitoring required by a rotorvap. The system also works well for processing fractions collected from flash liquid chromatography.

Post-Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE) Sample Preparation
The Genevac Flip-Flop system is an innovative tool designed to facilitate post ASE® concentration and preparation of samples. Samples are collected in the special Flip-Flop tube, the funnel and vial are fitted, the tube flipped over, and the second cap removed.

Your ASE sample can now be concentrated directly into a GC autosampler vial using a Genevac ROCKET Evaporator. The Genevac ROCKET Evaporator enables rapid concentration or evaporation of up to 18 Dionex ASE vials simultaneously. Using this simple procedure eliminates manual transfer steps and helps automate the ASE sample concentration/preparation process resulting in improved laboratory workflow, increased reproducibility of results, and enhanced sample recovery.
