LCGC Announces Partnership with the China Chromatography Network

LCGC has announced a major new partnership in China, with Sepu.net, the China Chromatography Network. Through this partnership, LCGCAsia Pacific will be distributed to more than 130,000 practicing chromatographers in Greater China.

The China Chromatography Network (Sepu.net) was established as a chromatography portal in 1999. Today, it is the largest industry web site and the most influential social media platform oriented to the analysis and testing industry. It provides easy access to practical, comprehensive, and professional information and services to more than a million users. The Sepu.net web site provides a wide range of information, including updates on standards and regulations, chromatography products, and a methods and reference library. The organization also provides in-person and online training through courses and web seminars.

For more than 30 years, LCGC has been the gold standard relied upon by chromatographers across all technique areas for objective, unbiased, nuts-and-bolts technical information they can use in their labs every day. LCGC's columns and peer-reviewed articles continue to bring readers technical advice from the most respected, veteran industry experts in the areas of ultrahigh-pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography (GC), liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS), GC–MS, capillary electrophoresis (CE), supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC), and more. Since 1998, LCGC has been extending the reach of its respected information about separation science to chromatographers in Asia through LCGC Asia Pacific.

Quintiles and BioCore Expand Bioanalytical Services in Asia

Quintiles (Durham, North Carolina) has announced the formation of an exclusive partnership with BioCore Co., Ltd., (Seoul, South Korea) to extend the provision of bioanalytical services in Asia.

The collection of high-quality bioanalytical data is important early on in drug development as this assists scientists making the key decisions determining the progress of a candidate drug to later, more expensive development stages.

BioCore will provide services exclusively to Quintiles for a two-year period. As the largest provider of bioanalytical LC–MS-MS services in South Korea, BioCore aims to further the provision of biopharmaceutical services in Asia Pacific.
