UCT Silane Cited in Microfluidic Article

UCT has long been recognized for the support of research bio-pharmaceutical scientists working on micro-fluidics through its Specialty Chemical line producing the finest of silanes in the market place. In a recent paper by Kim et al., based at Texas A&M University, USA (Micromachines (2016), 7, 114; doi:10.3390/mi7070114) used UCT’s tridecafluoro-1,1,2,2-tetrahydrooctyl trichlorosilane in their procedure to produce a microfluidic unit.

UCT SPE Columns Cited in Illicit Fentanyl Fatalities Paper

One of the more recent prescription drugs being abused illicitly is Fentanyl. This compound induces pharmacological effects and abuse liability comparable to other prescription opioids and heroin. A surge in fentanyl-related fatalities has been periodically reported throughout the USA. In an article published in the Special Issue of the Journal of Analytical Toxicology (JAT) by a team lead by Prof. B. A. Goldberger ((2016) 40:588–594), UCT’s flagship sorbent Clean Screen® DAU was employed to extract and analyze post mortem blood samples for fentanyl.
