Future of Specialty Chemicals Industry
Specialty chemical manufacturers by nature are vastly very innovative and entrepreneurial, and R&D of new chemistries continues to be a vital component of the specialty chemical businesses. Adding to the point the resurgence of key market segments is dependent on specialty chemicals and new project starts, these significant factors are fuelling the persuasive growth. Specialty chemicals are chemical products that are traded on the basis of their performance or function, rather than their composition. Therefore manufacturers can create a niche market for products having stable margins. Read More
How 3D Printing is transforming the Chemical Industry?
3D printing is the process of manufacturing a 3D object from CAD data. It is also known as additive manufacturing because it is manufactured by placing successive layers of material. A 3D model can be created from scratch with a 3D modelling software or a digital model of an object can be created with a 3D scanner. The digital model is translated to a real object using a 3D printer. Transformation of the chemical industry through 3D printing: 3D printing is an innovative technology, which has already been incorporated by the chemical industry. Since its commercialization in the 1980s, it has been growing and its implementation in the chemical industry has increased. Read More
Waters Corporation introduced a new amino acid analysis kit that reduces the time required to quantify amino acids, a critical application for research scientists investigating the physiological underpinnings of disease. The new Kairos amino acid analysis kit is capable of cutting analytical run times that can range up to two hours to run times of 10 minutes or less when used as directed with supported Waters UPLC systems, mass spectrometers and waters targeted omics method library. “After looking at how long it takes to get results on a limited set of amino acids, and at the accuracy and precision of those results, we decided we could do better.
