UCT Derivatizing Reagent cited in Forensic Anthropology Study

In a recent study, authored by Susan Luong et al., (Forensic Science International ((2018), 285 93-104)) UCT’s derivatizing reagent O-Bis(trimethylsilytrifluoroacetamide) containing 1% trimethylchlorosilane (BSTFA (1% TMCS)) was employed to assist with the gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric (GC-MS) analysis of a cadaveric break down product. In this research, a human cadaver was placed on the surface of a designated plot at the Australian Facility for Taphonomic Experimental Research (AFTER), the only human decomposition facility in Australia. The natural process of decomposition was allowed to progress over fourteen days during the summer.

UCT Silane Cited in Clinical Microbiology Article

In a recent paper authored by Wanyuan Ao et al., published in Journal of Clinical Microbiology (doi.org/10 .1128/JCM.00982-17), UCT’s polymer amine-functional T-structure polydimethylsiloxane ([TSPS] was used in the manufacturing process to coat crystalline silicon wafers in which curing took place at 150°C for 24 hours. The crystalline silicon chip is integral to the analytical process.
