The LCGC Blog: Working with Data Scientists to Improve Online Chemical Extraction and Analysis

This instalment of the LCGC Blog investigates fundamental relationships between the structures of molecules and their interaction with different materials, in the context of online supercritical fluid extraction–supercritical fluid chromatography (SFE–SFC).

Accredited Forensics Laboratories Are Not Properly Validating and Controlling Their Blood Alcohol Determination Methods

The lack of proper method validation has important implications in blood alcohol concentration (BAC) determinations. We examine this issue, addressing the importance of gas chromatography (GC) for BAC determination, why certain validation procedures are important, and why accreditation bodies need to step up their game.
