Donation from Mallincrodt Pharmaceuticals

Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, located in Webster Groves, Missouri, has donated a High Performance Liquid Chromatograph (HPLC) to UIS.

An HPLC allows scientists to separate the complex mixtures of compounds to purify, identify and quantify them.

“For example, using size-exclusion chromatography, students will be able to separate proteins in a mixture,” said Dr. Stephen R. Johnson.

“Having an HPLC at UIS will absolutely improve students’ education in any chemistry field,” Dr. Johnson said, “especially in biochemistry and bioanalytical chemistry.” Johnson said students in clinical laboratory science will also learn to use the instrument to help familiarize them with techniques that they will encounter in medical laboratories.

Kelly Pressler, Senior Analytical Chemist at Mallinckrodt, organized the donation to help the next generation of chemists prepare for their careers.

Thank you, Kelly, and thank you as well to your colleagues at Mallinckrodt!
