Expansion of mutually beneficial cooperation with "Concern-Energomash" CJSC

  • PDF

During the last two years, close professional contacts were established between the National Bureau of Expertises, RA (NBE) and Concern-Energomash CJSC, which is the exclusive representative of the leading American company Agilent Technologies. It should be specially noted that during the joint work, the company "Concern-Energomash" has established itself as a reliable partner, and the company's employees have confirmed their professional status and efficiency in resolving the problems arising in the National Bureau of Expertises during the operation of the analytical equipment of the firm "Agilent Technologies".

Therefore, the accumulated positive experience of joint work allowed us to move on to new forms of cooperation. Thus, at the end of June 2017, a cycle of on-line conferences on the instrumental nomenclature of Agilent Technologies was launched at the National Bureau of Expertises with direct organizational support of Concern-Energomash. In particular, the first on-line conference was devoted to the solutions of Agilent Technologies used in forensic laboratories and included two main topics:

- Developing Better solutions for GC-MS;

- GC-MS solutions for forensic applications from Agilent.

The workshop was attended by NBE employees of a number of departments and divisions. During the first on-line conference, effective solutions of Agilent Technologies for detecting, measuring and analyzing samples, which are vital for the successful implementation of expert studies, were presented. Note that at present, in order to ensure high reliability of the examinations performed, primarily in the detection of criminal offenses, including serious ones, technically more sophisticated analytical support is required. Therefore, during the first introductory on-line conference, a complex of modern equipment from Agilent Technologies for detection and analysis was presented, covering all aspects of standard forensic research.

During the on-line conference special attention was given to new analytical methods for the definition of "Designer drugs." In short, the content of the Forensic Toxicology Application Compendium (only for forensic medical expertise) and attached to it a set of medicines of the Essential GC / MS Designer Essentials Kit (only for forensic expertise) were also presented.For clarity, the available scanning solutions (thermal decomposition system providing rapid scanning of numerous samples) and measurement included in the GC / MS Ion Trap system with high sensitivity, reliability, as well as LC / MS analyzers with advanced automation and workflow management capabilities were demonstrated.

In conclusion, as already noted above, this format of the on-line conference, according to the agreement with "Concern-Energomash" CJSC, will be permanent in nature upon a preliminarily agreed subject, depending on the relevance and importance of the current on-line conference topics.

Seminar on Analytical Equipment ‘’New Solutions for Mass Spectrometry’’

  • PDF

From May 30 to 31, 2017, the staff of the departments of Medico-Biological, Food Products and Drinks Expertises of the National Bureau of Expertises of the RA took part in a two-day seminar, the purpose of which was to familiarize the participants with the latest applications for mass spectrometry in food and the environment, as well as with new directions in the field of pharmaceuticals. The seminar was organized and conducted by KhimExpert (Russia), the authorized distributor of Thermo Fisher Scientific (Life Sciences), the world's leading supplier of devices, reagents and consumables for molecular biology.

The first day of the seminar was completely devoted to the latest advances in food and environmental analysis using LC-MS/MS. In particular, the following presentations were made:

  • Good is not good enough- SCIEX QTRAP® 6500+System for High End Quantitative in the High Throughput Analytical Laboratory,
  • High Resolution LC-MS/MS for Food & Environmental Testing – X500R,
  • The power of Mass Spectrometry in the Detection of Food Fraud-Residues, Mycotoxins, Infant Formula, Beer and More,
  • Meat Speciation and Testing for Allergens-Emerging LC-MS/MS applications.

On the second day of the seminar questions of mass spectrometry in the field of pharmaceutics were considered. In particular:

  • LC-MS/MS in Pharmaceutical Analytics-Where and How if fit?
  • Challenges in setup of mass-spectrometric lab: Armenian CRO perspective,
  • X500B- Analysis and Quality Control of Biologic on a Novel QTOF Mass Spectrometer,
  • Targeted Proteomics – from Clinical Research to Therapeutic Drug Monitoring.

The seminar was attended by over 50 representatives of laboratories accredited in the Republic of Armenia for expert studies of pharmaceuticals and food products.

It is important to emphasize that the substantially new solutions of the American company "AB SCIEX" were presented.

It is necessary to note the indisputable practical importance and relevance of the above-mentioned seminar. The presented reports were drafted in such a way that, in addition to theory, practical exercises were supposed to allow participants not only to gain practical skills, but also to periodically switch from listening to the theory to practical studies.

The overwhelming majority of participants expressed their gratitude to the organizers and satisfaction with the theme of the seminar.
