Selling Newer Products In Pharmaceutical Sales Drug Rep Jobs

Drug rep jobs can be very interesting and here is a common pharmaceutical sales scenario where the reps will try to convince doctors to use newer long acting drugs known as sustained release (SR) or long acting (LA) versions of older shortacting medications.  Short acting drugs do not last long in the bloodstream so they must be dosed three to four times per day while the new SR/LA forms require to be taken only once per day.  Long acting drugs are slowly released in the bloodstream resulting in constant levels throughout the day even with single doses.For the added convenience of single dosing, there is usually a significant premium in cost with the SR/LA drugs compared to the older originals.  This is especially true in the case of many drugs including antihypertensive agents and antibiotics that have already been genericized (duplicated as brand 'X').  Many drug reps promoting these products will often get resistance from doctors who want to stay with the older treatments as they would ...


Why Chromatography Is An Important Technique In The Lab

Chromatography analysis is used to determine the presence and concentration of analytes in a sample. Chromatography refers to a set of laboratory methods and techniques for the separation of mixtures. It involves passing a mixture that dissolved in a mobile phase through a medium known as the stationary phase. This separates the analyte to be measured from other components of the mixture and allows it to be isolated. Chromatography may be preparatory or analytical in nature. Preparatory chromatography is performed to separate the components of a mixture for further analysis as well as for cleansing and purification applications. Analytical chromatography is usually done with smaller amounts of material and is used to measure the relative proportions of analytes in a mixture.In chromatography analysis, chemical substances are introduced into a vertical glass tube containing an adsorbent. The various components of the substance move through the adsorbent material at different rates of speed according to ...


The Proper Care and Sterilization of Anesthesia Equipment: Five Ways to Ensure Cleanliness

Anesthesia equipment is a crucial part of any surgery. Like other surgical tools, every piece of anesthesia equipment, including the breathing machine, must be sterilized. Missing even one small component or tool may introduce viruses or bacteria into a patient's system.Anesthesia equipment can be particularly tricky to properly clean and sterilize. This is especially true of tools like breathing machines which have multiple components like tubes and masks.Their very nature as contact instruments used for breathing makes them highly susceptible to retaining microorganisms. The moist, enclosed parts of a breathing machine are prime places for microorganisms to grow. If these microorganisms aren't thoroughly destroyed, they will quickly multiply and flourish.The same level of care must be given to anesthesia equipment as to other types of surgical tools. The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) has made a number of recommendations when it comes to cleaning and sterilization of these tools.The A...
