Reach Separations is Expanding.
Born in Febuary 2012 Reach started off life with 1 full time laboratory scientist. By July that year that number had doubled. No less than a year later Reach Separations are very pleased to announce that Victoria Coulthard has joined the team as a Senior Purification Scientist, working alongside Alex Brien and Phil Abbott.
Victoria attained a first class degree in Chemistry with Pharmaceutical and Forensic Science whilst concurrently studying for a Diploma in Industrial Studies giving her the perfect academic background for her current role of delivering purified materials to the pharmaceutical, agro-chemical and fine chemical industries.
As well as having a good grounding in the analytical sciences from her academic studies, Victoria also has an impressive industrial history working previously for Sygnature Discovery as a Senior Scientist supporting medicinal chemists in developing analytical methods for reaction monitioring and final compounds, isolating final compounds, downstream processes and structural elucidation.

Ultra Pure Purification
A new arrow has been added to the Reach quiver this month with our first Ultra Pure separation request. As well as our expertise in chiral chromatography the varied backgrounds of our analytical scientists means that when a client has a request for something outside of our 'bread and butter' work we can always step up and perform.
This was the case recently when a client required a significant quantity of material returning with at least 99.8% purity. Although not uncommon to require material of this purity in the pharmaceutical industry for genotoxicity studies / Ames to prevent false positives, the quantities required added an extra challenge.
Methods for producing this level of purity material were developed in house using a mixture of expert method development, dual orthoganol methods and peak slicing to produce material comfortably inside the required specification and time frames.
