Analytical lab will serve as a national technical support center advancing standardization and screening

Waters Corporation recently announced the inauguration of its Joint Open Laboratory established together with the Chinese Pharmacopeia Commission (ChP) during an opening ceremony held in Beijing.

The analytic laboratory will be jointly operated by ChP and Waters®. Focus areas include in-depth research of pharmacopoeia standards, development of testing methods, methods validations and basic and advanced technical training of pharmacopoeia detection methods. The laboratory is also anticipated to play a role as one of the national technical support centers in the field of Chinese pharmaceutical standards.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mike Harrington, Vice President of Waters Asia Pacific and European Operations, noted, "Our cooperation with ChP to open and operate this cooperative laboratory in China reflects our commitment to consistently push the boundaries of what's possible by helping to bring more resources to bear that enable innovations in China's pharmaceutical and biopharma industries."

The joint open lab spans 400 square meters and is located within the laboratory building of the Beijing Zhendong Guangming Drug Research Institute. Outfitted with Waters'® chromatography and mass spectrometry technologies, the facility is set to support Pharmacopeia standards in China.
