Description: Architect Montroy Andersen DeMarco (MADGI) has completed the construction of Symrise’s New York Studio, a $3.75 million, high-end office and laboratory space for the company’s fragrances, flavorings, cosmetic active ingredients, raw materials, and functional ingredients as well as sensorial and nutritional solutions. The newly renovated space is located at 505 Park Ave., at 59th Street in Manhattan. The new studio houses the central social space combined with a reception area, multiple conference and meeting rooms, an open office section, seven private offices, a fragrance laboratory, a pantry, a privacy phone room, an IT room and an elevator lobby. “The main design challenge was to help the client transition from a traditional corporate environment to an open collaborative plan, create maximum comfort, and find elements that will make it attractive. Another was separating the laboratory space from the administrative area, so that scents from one area do not impact the other,” recalled MADGI Project Manager and Designer Elizabeth Zagarello. “It was achieved by separating the lab, located on the west side of the floor, from the administrative areas on the east and south of the building core.” This configuration helps isolate the lab to prevent scents from getting out (or in, from the cafeteria area on the other side of the floor).  In addition, a split HVAC system creates positive air pressure inside the lab space and other negative zones within the office that prevent pollutants, such as cafeteria smells, from traveling into the lab.

FileMaker Pro 7v3: database software. The new release includes changes to text editing, layout editing, scripting, calculations, import/export and more. IPNetMonitorX 1.5c10x: monitor and troubleshoot network connections. The new version fixes a bug that caused some TCP traces to terminate prematurely. Search Monkey Pro 1.1: search the Internet from any application. The new release adds support for displaying multiple background images in rotation. Audio Hijack Pro 2.1.1: record and enhance audio from any source. The new release has an 'Add to iPod' script and improved handling of RealPlayer files. PC-Mac PasswordVault Lite 3.3: secure password manager. This new version improves security by only allowing service passwords and the master password to be unmasked temporarily, protecting them from observation. A Better Finder Attributes 3.6: change file dates, attributes, EXIF. The new release introduces a file details drawer designed to make it easier to judge file changes. Spirited Away 0.3: hides apps after a period of inactivity. The new release is localized in Japanese.

The performance of HPLC-UV as a means of quantifying selected furocoumarins in essential oils has been evaluated, based on a ring test validation approach. Accuracy profiles were generated, to determine bias and statistical confidence associated with determination at different concentrations, along with lower limits of quantification (LOQ). From these findings, it can be concluded that the method described may only be used in simple cases (essential oils), to measure individual furocoumarin compounds at concentrations greater than 10. mg/l; the non compound-specific nature of detection by absorption in the UV range is unable to overcome the effect of interferences arising from chromatographic coelutions, such as those encountered in the analysis of complex commercial fragrance mixtures. The use of an algorithmically calculated 'spectral similarity' function, with reference to authentic standards, may be used to improve reliability in assignment and quantification. © 2012.

Flavonoids are a large group of plant secondary metabolites with a variety of biological properties and are therefore of interest to many scientists, as they can lead to industrially interesting intermediates. The anaerobic gut bacterium Eubacterium ramulus can catabolize flavonoids, but until now, the pathway has not been experimentally confirmed. In the present work, a chalcone isomerase (CHI) and an enoate reductase (ERED) could be identified through whole genome sequencing and gene motif search. These two enzymes were successfully cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli in their active form, even under aerobic conditions. The catabolic pathway of E. ramulus was confirmed by biotransformations of flavanones into dihydrochalcones. The engineered E. coli strain that expresses both enzymes was used for the conversion of several flavanones, underlining the applicability of this biocatalytic cascade reaction. © 2014 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
