Sarah Bliese and Margaret Berta's paper on the distributed pharmaceutical analysis lab (DPAL) was just published in J. Chem. Ed

The distributed pharmaceutical analysis laboratory (DPAL) is a collaboration between 30 academic institutions around the world, whose goal is to determine the quality of medicines collected from partner organizations in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).  The distributed pharmaceutical analysis lab project aims to make analytical capacity at colleges and universities around the world available to carry out preliminary HPLC tests of medicines purchased in LMICs.Over a thousand samples have been analyzed through DPAL in the last three years, and 168 samples with quality problems have been discovered, including falsified acetaminophen, adulterated amoxicillin-clavulanate and doxycycline, and substandard losartan.
