The University of Puerto Rico is very strong in engineering and life sciences training, and is an active member of the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Technology and Education (NIPTE) which is advancing the science of drug manufacturing, and new NIPTE initiatives on the island are expected shortly. The island's is gaining momentum, and the government is clearly devoting its resources to advancing upstream R&D efforts. So much so that BIO named Puerto Rico governor Anibal Acevedo-Vila At a celebratory dinner at Rumba Cafe, clearly one of Chicago's top restaurants, we saw a cross-section of the leaders of Puerto Rico's life sciences community, a diverse and cosmpolitan group. Seated at our table were trustees of the University of Puerto Rico: Ram Lamba, Chancellor of the University of Puerto Rico, Cayey; Hilda Colon-Plumey, Chancellor of UPR Humacao and Gladys Escalona de Motta, Chancellor of the UPR Rias Piedras. , a native of Delhi who has been living and teaching in Puerto Rico for years, described a deep affinity with the culture and the people of Puerto Rico, illustrating the fact that pharma and biopharma is global and should know no borders. This global spirit was really the key message of BIO `06, although it was obscured at times by the appearance of competition at one point, this competition became audible, as the strains of salsa from the Puerto Rican pavillion, of Irish music from Ireland's exhibit, and Chicago blues, from the Illinois pavillion, all competed for attention. There's clearly room for all in the pharma/biopharma world of the future, and it will be interesting to see how each center of excellence carves out its own niche and makes a unique statement.

Products & Services
Quartz Tube and Rod
Quartz tube and rod are hollow or solid stock shapes of fused quartz materials. They are used in laboratories, semiconductors, sight glasses, and level gages. Quartz tubes and rods are also used in X-ray tube, optical, lamp, pharma, vacuum tube stem assembly, and industrial process applications.
Inorganic Chemicals and Compounds
Inorganic chemicals, inorganic salts and inorganic compounds are substances of mineral origin that do not contain carbon in their molecular structure.
Form Gages and Form Gaging Systems
Form gages and form gaging systems are used to inspect parameters such as roundness, angularity, squareness, straightness, flatness, runout, taper and concentricity.
Surface Metrology Equipment
Surface metrology equipment is used to measure the surface finish and/or geometry of engineering components. Surface texture and topology characteristics include surface roughness, contour, form, waviness, and defects.
Gas flares, alternatively known as a flare stacks, are used to eliminate waste gas, which is released via pressure relief valve when needed to ease the strain on equipment.
