Analyse this! Seda appoints two new Analytical Scientists

We are delighted to welcome two new analytical scientists to the team, Effi Baetzner and Bethany Nelson. The expertise they bring will further enhance the quality, capacity and breadth of analytical services we provide. With our in-house instrumentation and specialist knowledge in chemical analysis, we are well placed to perform characterisation and quantitation of pharmaceutical materials to support formulation development, as well as advising on more complex techniques that can be applied to understand preclinical and clinical in vivo behaviour. Specific examples include assay and related substances method development using liquid chromatography to support experimental stability and excipient compatibility studies. 

Meet our new analytical scientists:
