UCT Derivatizing Reagents Cited in ATS Study

Amphetamines Type Substances (ATS), which include amphetamine (AMP), methamphetamine (MA), 4-methylamphetamine (4-MA), 3,4-methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-ethylamphetamine (MDEA), cathinone (CAT), and ephedrine (EPH), are widely acknowledged as common identified drugs of abuse.  Alternative, new-age synthetic cathinones such as methcathinone (MC)...

UCT XtrackT® Sorbent Cited in Drugs in Wastewater Article

Environmental analysts are often tasked with the evaluation of illicit and prescription drugs in wastewater samples in an attempt to better understand the epidemiology of a populated area. Due to the challenging consistency of this matrix, clean-up is often vital in order...

UCT Specialty Chemical Cited in Biomolecular Study

     Microelectrode arrays (MEAs) are innovative tools used to perform electrophysiological experiments for the study of electrical activity and connectivity in populations of neurons from dissociated cultures. The reliance upon neurons derived from embryonic tissue is a common limitation...

UCT Silane Cited in Biomolecular Engineering Paper

Three-dimensional pluripotent stem cell (PSC) cultures have the ability to undergo differentiation, self-organization, and morphogenesis to yield complex, in vitro tissue models that recapitulate key elements of native tissues. These tissue models offer a system for studying mechanisms of tissue...

UCT Clean Screen FASt® cited in Forensic Toxicology Study

Of the challenges facing forensic toxicologists working in the post mortem field, the analysis of decomposed or skeletal remains for the presence and concentrations of drug compounds may be the most difficult. The use of bone as a matrix for...

UCT QuEChERS Kits Cited in Cranberry Perfluoroalkyl Substances Study

Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), in particular perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), have been widely studied due to their persistence, distribution, toxicity and bio-accumulation in humans and the environment. These compounds can enter the environment through landfills (products containing...

UCT Silane Cited in Cellular Research Article

Pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) have the ability to self-renew and differentiate to three germ lineages. When PSCs are cultured as three-dimensional (3D) cellular aggregates, they mimic many of the biochemical and biophysical interactions that occur during in vivo, early embryonic...
