A Comparison of Measurement Methods for Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizers

February 26, 2021
Mary Bedner, Jacolin Murray, Aaron A. Urbas, William A. MacCrehan, Walter Brent Wilson
The production and demand for hand sanitizers have increased dramatically during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) health emergency. To be deemed effective and safe, hand sanitizers should contain at least 60 % alcohol (typically ethanol) as well as

NIST/NIH Vitamin D Metabolites Quality Assurance Program (VitDQAP): Final Report

September 16, 2020
Katrice A. Lippa, Mary Bedner, Susan Tai, Carolyn Q. Burdette
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) established a Vitamin D Metabolites Quality Assurance Program (VitDQAP) in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements (NIH-ODS) in 2009. The VitDQAP at NIST

Development of an LC-APCI-MS Method for Determining Off-Flavor Compounds and its Application Towards Marine Recirculating Aquaculture System Monitoring and Evaluation of Aeration as a Depuration Approach

January 4, 2020
Mary Bedner, Keiko Saito
The off-flavor compounds geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol (2-MIB) are well-known to impact the quality of farmed freshwater fish species, but little is known about off-flavors in marine aquaculture. To begin addressing this knowledge gap, a method for the
