Announcements and Ideas

May 1, 2012

Stop by our booth at the MAAFS Annual Conference in Ellicott City, Maryland.  We will be at Turf Valley Resort the week of May 14 with our DiscovIR on display and our experts available for questions.  See how you can differentiate synthetic cannabinoid isomers with solid-phase GC-IR.  Also, please join us for the Vendor Spotlight on Thursday, May 17 at 3:30 pm – you may win a door prize!  For more information, please click here.

April 13, 2012

If you are attending the American Coatings Show in Indianapolis in May, you might enjoy an informative presentation by Dr. Ming Zhou, our Director of Application Engineering.  In this session, three case studies will be presented on adhesives, inks and coatings to illustrate GPC-IR capabilities to deformulate complex polymer mixtures for competitive analysis, IP protection and analytical troubleshooting.  For more information, please click here.

March 14, 2012

We will be in San Diego, March 26-29, for the ACS Spring National Meeting.  We will be presenting four posters and an oral presentation on characterizng and deformulating polymer mixtures, etc.  For more information on all sessions, please click here.

Also in San Diego...Tosoh Bioscience has invited SAI, Inc. to speak on "Characterizing Copolymers with GPC-IR" at the Advanced Polymer Characterization Workshop on March 26 at the Convention Center.  For more information and to register for this free workshop, please click here.

March 7, 2012

Please join us and Shodex/Showa Denko America at Pittcon in Orlando on March 13, 2012.  We will be presenting a joint poster on "GPC-IR Hyphenated Technique to Characterize Polymeric Excipients in Pharmaceutical Formulations" from 10 am to 4:30 pm in the Blue Area of the Exposition Floor.  For more information on the poster session, please click here.  If you miss the poster session, you may visit the Shodex/Showa Denko booth (#1067) during the conference and see it on display.

January 18, 2012

We welcome you to visit our booth (#424) at the AAFS 64th Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, February 20-25.  We can show you how our DiscovIR-GC Solid-Phase GC-IR instrumentation plays an important role for forensic labs in supporting the law enforcement community.  Also, Christina England from the US Army's Crime Lab will be presenting an interesting scientific session on "Differentiation of Isomers of Synthetic Cannabinoids" on Saturday.  For more information, please click here.

January 11, 2012

We are sponsoring a FREE webinar, "Compositional Heterogeneity of Polymers by SEC-IR:  A New Hyphenated Technique at Dow Chemical" on Thursday, January 26 from 10 am to 11 am EST (GMT -5 hours / UTC -5 hours).  You will learn the practical use of hyphenated analytical systems (SEC-IR and GPC-IR) for the analysis and development of polymers and copolymers.  Mark Rickard from Dow Chemical will share his findings on Acrylate Copolymers structure and application performance relationship using SEC-IRIf you would like to participate, please register here.

January 5, 2012

Our instrument will be on display at the 12th International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography in Bruges, Belgium, February 1-3.  Please visit the JEOL/JSB booth and meet our Senior Vice President, Bill Carson.  He will be on hand to discuss the DiscovIR's capabilities in gaining an in-depth view of complex mixtures and their properties.
