Biotage Introduces SNAP Ultra High Performance Flash Chromatography Cartridges with Biotage HP-Sphere Silica

Biotage introduced the new Biotage® SNAP Ultra high performance flash chromatography cartridges utilizing Biotage® HP-Sphere™ spherical silica.

Uppsala, Sweden, February 14, 2012 — Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical and medicinal chemistry, introduced the new Biotage® SNAP Ultra high performance flash chromatography cartridges utilizing Biotage® HP-Sphere™ spherical silica. Biotage® SNAP Ultra is available in a wide range of sizes from 10 g – 340 g.

Biotage® HP-Sphere™ is chromatographically tested proprietary silica with 40% more surface area than previously available flash silica in the same high performance category, improving loading capacity and providing superior separation of eluting compounds. The precision engineered Biotage® SNAP Ultra cartridges combine industry leading resolving power, universal plug and play compatibility, and lower back pressures resulting in the highest performing flash chromatography cartridges available.

A researcher can load twice the amount of sample on a Biotage® SNAP Ultra cartridge than they can on an equal sized cartridge from other suppliers, enabling chemists to utilize cartridges half the size of those normally used. Using a smaller, higher surface area cartridge saves time and uses less solvent. Less solvent also means less cost per separation and less waste. And consistent with the SNAP family, a removable cap allows for simple internal sample loading for liquid and dry samples further improving purification performance.

Biotage® SNAP Ultra cartridges and Biotage® Isolera™ flash purification systems integrate seamlessly to produce better separations and pure compounds on the first attempt. Luer lock inlet and outlet ports also ensure the most reliable connection to Biotage® Isolera™ systems, and any other flash chromatography system on the market.

Terminally Single Love Seekers Suffer on Valentines Day

Singles Can find out if they are at risk of being Terminally Single with America’s most innovative Love Expert & Author, Susan Bradley’s free online video’s and webinars from Valentines Day through Sadie Hawkins Day.

Carmel, CA, USA – February 14, 2012 — America’s most loved Relationship Expert teaches singles how to Fall in Love avoid being a TS’er (Terminally Single)

Susan Bradley, relationship expert and award winning author of How to be Irresistible to the Opposite S*x rescues singles just before Singles Awareness Day. Want to know if you are at risk of being one of the nations TERMINALLY SINGLE? Find out if you are a TS’er with her online guide: found at

Direct Link:

Top FIVE qualities of the Terminally Single:
1. TOO INEXPERIENCED: You don’t date much, have only been in love once or twice, have never been in a serious long term relationship and still keep thinking it’s going to happen “one day.”
2. TOO SMART: Super intelligent, logical, rational people think that flirting is beneath them. They worry they won’t be taken seriously.
3. TOO CHOOSY: These singles always say: I’m just too selective. On the surfact this seems like a rational excuse but the real reason is that they’re just plain afraid to be disappointed again. No one seems to measures up to their lofty unrealistic standards.
4. TOO PC: Singles who are too politically correct come across like dull door mats. They never seem to spark loves flames.
5. TOO RISK ADVERSE: Risk Adverse singles, worry too much about every detail in dating and relating. They have pesky belief systems that work overtime to protect them from getting hurt again so they never quite make their move.

Too many singles think that when the “time is right”, someone will magically appear. This is a very dangerous mind set. Bradley can successfully teach shy singles how to flirt and how to go for their love goals, but if they never change their old belief system that negatively impacts their love action plan, they will end up terminally single.

Bradley says that the #1 reason singles avoid love is fear of negative relationship drama. She advises singles to avoid dating people with:

D: Divorce Drama- If the divorce proceedings are rocky, you will be impacted.
R: Re-probates -people with DUI’s or excessive run-ins with the law.
A: Anger/Abuse Issues (Watch for the little red flags that show up.)
M: Money issues (perpetual ones) and people who are still Married or in a relationship.
A: Active Addiction Issues: Avoid people who are actively in recovery or still in denial and not doing anything about their addiction.

Instead of falling into the DRAMA trap, singles should seek to Partner & Prosper in Love. Life is filled with a certain amount of unavoidable drama but no single should invite more into their life. Healthy singles make healthy prosperous couples but they do need to take a NO DRAMA approach to choosing the best soul mate.

Seek to Partner and Prosper: not Date and Divorce. Bradley says that: In today’s world it is critically important for singles to be 100% more aware of their choices in love and seek professional help from a love coach. No more dating people with “potential.” Make yourself ready and then raise the bar. Singles still looking to partner and procreate need to get more serious before their window of opportunity eludes them. Those who are looking for love and take the time to Break Through their Love and Abundance Barriers (sneaky underlying fears that keep love at bay) will find love. Love seekers that keep letting their fears stop them, won’t. Singles are not equipped to eliminate these fears on their own.

Bradley will help the Terminally Single avoid negative drama and find a Partner and Prosper with her ground-breaking FREE webinars found online beginning Valentines Day and ending on Sadie Hawkins day (Feb 29th).

AAA: Billionaire’s decision to invest in forestry shows ethical approach

A billionaire investor has this week opted to put much of his cash in forestry investments, in a move that has been welcomed by alternative and ethical investment advocates, AAA.

Boston, MA, USA, February 14, 2012 — A billionaire investor has this week opted to put much of his cash in forestry investments, in a move that has been welcomed by alternative and ethical investment advocates, Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

New Zealand-born and Singapore-based billionaire, Richard Chandler has decided to invest some $150 million into Tasmanian timber group Gunns, which means that he is now one of the their largest shareholders. The investment is intended to be used by the firm to finish the development of its long-awaited Bell Bay Pulp Mill. Chandler is expected to want to start influencing the business and driving growth.

Chandler claims that having an ethical influence on firms is part of the responsibility that comes with investing in them. He said, “Responsible investors will engage corporate governance issues where they encounter them, as an intrinsic and necessary component of professional investment management.”

AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, claims Chandler is the latest in a line of influential investors to opt for an ethical approach to investing. Mr Johnson said, Investing in forestry can be an exceptionally ethical approach to making money as sustainable forestry helps communities to prosper while maintaining habitats for wildlife and adding to carbon absorption.”

Adding to the amount of forested land in a country is one of the best and most cost-effective ways of reducing carbon emissions thanks to the carbon sequestration characteristics of trees, claims AAA.

AAA supports forestry plantation investments, such as the one run by Greenwood Management in Brazil, which enables investors to buy up sections of sustainably-operated plantation land, which provide forestry products including charcoal for the steel industry.

Timber prices are expected to increase in the coming years as demand from Europe and emerging economies like China and India starts to exceed supply. Already, China is becoming one of the world’s major importers of timber and this trend is set to continue as its economy grows further.

FRA says Timber demand from China could help US forestry industry

FRA has welcomed the news that the demand for timber is on the up thanks to the increasing appetite for timber in China.

Bainbridge Island, WA, February 14, 2012 – Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has welcomed the news that the demand for timber is on the up thanks to the increasing appetite for timber in China.

Figures on timber harvesting in 2011 analysed by forestry economist, Gary Lettman, showed that harvests had picked up last year with the number of board feet harvested looking better than the past few years, which have been disappointing for the US forestry industry.

West Wood Productions Association’s CEO, Kevin Binam claims that demand in 2012 is going to improve, but is still cautious. He said, “There’s not anybody out there jumping for joy, saying it’s going to be a roaring good year, but everybody expects 2012 to be a little better than 2011.”

Many mills in the US are still running at around 80 per cent capacity, up from around 70 per cent last year in many cases. Industry insiders said they will be able to ‘ramp up’ production should demand increase even further from China and other emerging markets.

Exports of logs to China totalled 1.1 billion feet, up 108 per cent in the first ten months of last year, which indicates a major improvement in demand from the country. Binam said, “That’s been a big game changer for, not all the Western [US] mills, but certainly for some.”

FRA’s analysis partner, Peter Collins, said that although the experts are remaining tight-lipped about the prospects in 2012, the increase in demand from China is great news for the industry, which has had a tough few years. He said “We expect this increase in demand to translate to higher timber prices, with investment in sustainable forestry plantations in developing countries still proving popular with Western investors.”

FRA is an analysis and research consultancy that specialises in forestry investment. It supports a range of sustainable projects in which people can invest, including Greenwood Management’s teak and eucalyptus plantations in Brazil.
