Empower™ and Ion Chromatography: Essential Tools for Drug Discovery



  December 6, 2018

  8:00 a.m. PST / 11:00 a.m. EST / 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET




Ion chromatography (IC) participates in analytical methods throughout the pharmaceutical product lifecycle. Starting with R&D and formulation and ending with final product quality control, IC is a practical tool for ion analysis in complex matrices. The wide-ranging usage of IC demands method traceability, integration with existing systems and consistent personnel training.

Join this webinar to hear Rick Camp, President at ENCO Pharmaceutical Development, Inc. and Owner of ENCO Labs, Inc. discuss the requirements of his development labs. Through a case study on organic acids in an ophthalmic solution, Rick will discuss solutions he has deployed to address this challenge and best practice for IC analysis.

Neil Lander, Principal Product Manager of Informatics Marketing at Waters Corporation will present an overview of Empower's design and how that design makes Empower useful for pharmaceutical labs. Neil will discuss the elements of a CDS that align with the requirements Rick presented for the development lab. This educational and interactive event is designed to educate attendees on the advantages and applications of IC throughout the pharmaceutical product lifecycle. After the presentations, an interactive Q&A session allows you to ask your specific questions to the experts.
