October 14, 2014, Millville, NJ – WHEATON today announced the launch of Chromatography World, a new online resource designed to educate, inform and entertain users of chromatography, a widely-used set of technologies to separate out the individual components of complex mixtures. Chromatography World is a one-stop portal that includes news of relevant scientific and technological advances, information on scientific and industry meetings, new product updates, technical guidance, user forums, a Pinterest page, science-focused games and contests, giveaways, and other relevant topics. The portal is intended to serve chromatography users in a wide variety of fields, including the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, environmental testing, food and beverage, forensic, industrial and chemical industries.
 
“We are proud of our purpose-built MicroLiter products that make automated chromatography methods faster, easier, more accurate and more cost effective,” said Wayne L. Brinster, CEO and President of WHEATON. “Our Chromatography World portal invites visitors to ‘Separate from the Real World and Come Play in Ours,’ which captures the spirit of this lively new resource intended to both inform and entertain. The portal will be regularly updated and is designed to have an interactive component, so we invite all those who use chromatography to tour the site, sign up for some swag and contribute to what we hope will become a vital and valuable hub for the larger chromatography community.”
 
WHEATON’s MicroLiter unit supplies vials and consumables for the chromatography autosampler market. It offers clean room packaged vials, inserts, crimp seals, screw thread and snap caps with a variety of septa configurations ensuring that samples sustain minimal impact from the container. The patented MicroLiter Plate Sampling System allows users to prep samples using liquid handlers in a 96-well format and transfer the samples with minimal human interaction. MicroLiter supports all major brands of autosamplers, sample injectors, and liquid handlers, and its products are conveniently packaged in configurations that fit with the workflow of the wide variety of applications served.
