Dear Friends and Colleagues,

So spring has finally sprung and with it the start of Reach Separations hitting the road. We exhibited at 'Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry' in Bonn in March, where I took an evening tour of the city with a 17th century Night Watchman (!) and returned to Germany, via Basel last month, with Alex presenting at the Phenoprep symposium in Rheinfelden. This summer will see us out and about across Europe and America, as Phil attends HPLC 2016 in San Francisco. As always you can find out more by visiting our website or feel free to drop me a line.

Best regards, Victoria Coulthard, Early Business Development Manager.

Achiral SFC for the analysis of complex mixtures.

We've been busy back in the laboratory too. We've taken complex samples, waste of waste streams generated here in the lab, and analysed them across techniques and columns. We found that in most cases an equal or greater, number of impurities were resolved using at least one of the SFC columns in comparison to a standard UHPLC gradient method. This gives us even more confidence that when the prep technology catches up with analytical columns more and more compounds will be suitable for purification by SFC, which in our eyes is of huge benefit!

Prep on the Rhein

Senior Separation Scientist Alex Brien presented a rather rhetorical question at the Phenoprep symposium in Rheinfelden last month. 'Is HPLC the end of SFC?' it promoted much discussion and took a look at how the two technologies can be utilised together as well as the individual benefits of each. If you'd like a copy of the slides, please don't hesitate to get in touch. The symposium allowed for plenty of conversation and idea sharing between scientists and the whole event was hosted in a beautiful river side castle!

We'll be visiting Basel again twice in June, so if you are facing any chiral challenges please don't hesitate to get in touch we'd be more than happy to pop in for a visit.

Third times a charm...

Congratulations to Bryna on finally passing her driving theory test! And thanks to the Biocity Kitchen for the celebratory cake! Good luck with the practical Bryna!

RICT July 2016

Reach Separations will be exhibiting at RICT 2016 - Interfacing Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery in July. If you are there please come and say hello over a coffee. You can find more details on our website

Another Three Peaks success

Having supported Alex and Victoria's sub 24 hour completion of the National Three Peaks Challenge in 2013, Technical Director Phil Abbott finally got around to completing it himself recently. Phil completed the ascent and descent of the 3 mountains in 22 hours 44 minutes - just slightly quicker than that of Alex and Victoria - A fact he doesn't seem to be getting bored of reminding everyone of!
