Resources for educators

We appreciate so much the work being done by educators around the world to engage students in better understanding science.e5a7804ea03cc6d867abb0e3154e9344.jpg

We’ve found that most students respond well to videos, and we’d like to offer a couple that we think might help students grasp the concepts of chromatography while providing some entertainment.

We encourage all educators to use and share these if they find them useful.

New Sample Applicator Launched

We are very proud to announce the launch of our new BandIT Sample Applicator, a semi-automatic device used to apply a uniform streak or band of sample solution to a Thin Layer Chromatography Plate.

Our Technical Director, Ned Dugan, says this device will provide users with a level of precision that couldn’t be reached by traditional manual application.

And our Process Engineer, Richard Jenkins, said this device represents a leap forward in both accuracy and ease of use.

Of course, what we really like is what chromatographers have to say about it:

Arablab 2015 recap video

This was our third year attending Arablab, and for the third time we had the privilege of talking with chemists, business leaders, and government officials from around the world about chromatography.

We were honored to share a booth with other great companies like B&W Tek, SMT, and GS Tek, and to have the support of the State of Delaware for this show.

Here’s a recap of our experiences in Dubai:

The trip was truly amazing and we are excited to work with the people of China to provide high quality chromatography equipment.

First, here’s a look at our video from our week in China:

当然我们期待继续和你们的交流,无论是工作还是生活的,我们的联系电邮 。或者也可以通过我们的新浪微博联系我们:


We would also like to continue our conversations through e-mail – – and through our Weibo Page.

And we would like to introduce our associate in China who is helping us with our translations, Peggy Zou:

Making Connections At ArabLab 2014

We were proud to not only represent the chromatography community, but also the State of Delaware along with our friends from three other Delaware-based companies at ArabLab 2014 in Dubai.

Here’s a brief look at the show from our booth’s perspective:

and here’s a more comprehensive look at the work done by everyone in this group:

We had an incredible time making new friends and catching up with many old friends.

Just a quick look at Pittcon 2014 from our perspective:

We had an incredible time in Chicago, seeing many old friends and meeting new friends. It’s always great to hear your chromatography stories and find out more about what you are doing.

Next year, New Orleans!
