By the end of 2017, VelaLabs invested nearly 1,000,000 € to enhance its instrumental park and to support our worldwide customers even better. Furthermore, VelaLabs now offers completely new services for structural characterization and determination of extractables and leachables. New instruments, among others, were: SCIEX Triple TOF 6600, Agilent 1290 Infinity II LC, Agilent 7100 CE, Agilent MSD, and FACS MACSQuant. VelaLabs also purchased further deep freezers including capabilities for storage in nitrogenic gas phase. VelaLabs can thus now better address the increasing demand of our customers for GMP storage room.
