  • LDS opens a new Lab in Shanghai

    In January 2010 our Chinese Partner LDS has opened a dedicated lab in a key industrial Park of Shanghai district.
     396 sqm dedicated to formulation analysis services : help with data treatment, particle size measurement, microrheology, stability, surface tension, zeta potential...

  • Nanoparticles - Toxicity and Fate

    We presented a study on the preparation of nanoparticle dispersion in cell culture media and its impact on stability / dosimetry prior to toxicological studies.

  • New IMO Sulfur Cap for marine fuels

    New low-sulfur blends expected as soon as in 2019

    With the new Sulfur cap the requirements for new types of fuel blends will only rise in 2019 and following years. 
    Suppliers will be faced with compatibility problems of new formulations and need to characterise the impact of new additives such as antifouling agents, asphaltenes inhibitors, etc on long term stability.

Agrochemical Formulations

feb 24 2020

Agrochemicals, such as fertilizers, and pesticides are big businesses. Since 2012total pesticide sales have remained relatively stable within the EU, with over 300M kg of pesticides alone being sold in 20162. The market has been moving towards growing demands of organic nutrition and higher concentration pesticides. Reducing our dependence on agrochemicals without posing risks to food security is challenging because pesticides, fertilizers and growth hormones all help to ensure improved and consistent crop yields.3

What is a colloidal dispersion and how to measure its stability?

jan 22 2020

A colloidal dispersion is composed of solid, liquid or gas particles dispersed in a continuous phase (solid, liquid or gas). Strictly speaking, the term colloidal refers to particles with at least one dimension ranging from 1nm to 1µm. Most commonly encountered colloidal dispersions are solid-liquid (suspensions), liquid-liquid (emulsions), gas-liquid (foams), and solid-gas (aerosols) dispersions.

Testing THC edibles: The Importance of stability testing in the cannabis field

aug 28 2019

Recently, the legalization of cannabis-infused edibles has been passed by several states in the U.S. Later this year, cannabis-infused edibles will be for sale in Canada, though Quebec has announced it will ban most edibles. This may be news to some as the legalization and sale of cannabis leaf and extracts are handled differently than that of a formulated edible. Whether for recreational or medicinal-use edibles impose new kinds of problems as the processed consumables possess different bioavailability and uptake routes in the body, leading to longer onset times and overdose potential when compared to standard inhalation methods. Label claims need to be met and verified in terms of potency testing and overall safety to the consuming public. Up to this point, testing has not generally been universally regulated due to the absence of a universal governing body to implement standards of what needs to be tested and what levels of accuracy are valid, leading to a wide range of quality within products. Many say that global legalization will actually allow for the expanded research of these drugs and their safety to the public, something that has obviously been difficult to do.

Metalworking Fluids (MWF): Overcoming Stability Issues

aug 19 2019

Metalworking fluids (MWFs) are a family of industrial liquids used to reduce the temperature of and/or lubricate metal workpieces while they are being machined. Cutting and grinding processes can generate significant amounts of heat and friction, which can cause undesirable thermomechanical side-effects: burning, deformation, smoking, surface roughness, thermal warping, etc. If a workpiece burns it may be rendered unfit for downstream application, while off-gases and smoke represent a respiratory health risk for personnel. The thermomechanical drawbacks of conventional metalworking can represent logistical and health and safety issues if not addressed.
