UCT Sorbent Cited in TIAFT Fentanyl and 18 Novel Fentanyl Analogs Presentation

UCT’s famous Clean Screen® DAU was used to extract fentanyl and 18 additional compounds from whole blood samples. A fit-for-purpose method validation adapted from SWGTOX was performed by assessing the following criteria over five days: bias, precision, linear dynamic range, interferences and carryover.

UCT 521 Enviro-Clean® 521 Sorbent Cited in Disinfection Study

In a recent paper authored by Wan-Ning Lee et al, published in Food Chemistry ((2018) 256 319-326) UCT’s Enviro-Clean® 521 solid phase extraction (SPE) cartridges were used to analyze 40 conventional and emerging DBPs in fresh cut produce wash water by modified EPA methods. The authors reported that good recoveries (60–130%) were achieved for most DBPs in deionized water and in lettuce, strawberry and cabbage wash water. The method detection limits are in the range of 0.06–0.58 μg/L for most DBPs and 10–24 ng/L for nitrosamines in produce wash water.

UCT Silane Cited in Plasmon Research Study

Ultrasensitive and selective detection and quantification of dopamine (DA) plays a key role in monitoring neurodegenerative diseases and the detection limit reported is typically in the lower nanomolar range. Pushing the detection limit to picomolar (pM) or lower for this particular target to cover the physiological levels (< 130 pM) is significant. In the following article, DA DNA aptamer (DAAPT) gold nanoparticle (AuNP) conjugate is utilized to enhance the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) signal, which enables to detect and quantify DA in the femtomolar (200 fM) to pM range.
