Event Overview

Ion chromatography (IC) is a versatile technique often used for analyzing trace impurities in pharmaceutical products. Its flexibility allows it to distinguish, quantify and detect ions in highly diverse or dilute sample matrices.

Metrohm ICs now integrate with Waters’ Empower software, the gold standard for chromatography data software (CDS) in regulated pharmaceutical and biotech laboratories. This integration simplifies the validation process, minimizes training needs for those labs, and requires only minimal changes to institutional SOPs and workflows.

Attend this webcast to hear Neil Lander, Principal Product Manager of Informatics Marketing at Waters Corporation present an overview of Empower’s design that makes this software so useful for pharmaceutical labs. Tom Zarella of Metrohm will then discuss the specific advantages of ion chromatography for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.
