Hagen the 1996 award for Advances in Sample Preparation. These membrane configurations eliminate wall and other channeling problems associated with conventional particle-packed columns and are seen as a major advance in SPE cartridge design. The technology has been approved in official EPA methods and reduces the time and solvent necessary for sample preparation. Current applications are in the enviromnental, clinical, food and DNA assay areas. Hagen is a corporate scientist at the 3M Company of St Paul, Minn., which he joined in 1963 as a research specialist. His work has resulted in a number of technical presentations, publications, issued patents and pending patent applications. The award is sponsored by HewlettPackard to recognize advances in the area of automated sample preparation and sample preparation science. It is open to scientists worldwide and the candidates are selected by the scientific committee of the International Conference on Automation, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence applied to Analytical Chemistry, where the award is presented. This is the fifth time the award has been presented.

These databases provide information in analytical chemistry, mass spectrometry, biotechnology, health and safety, chemical engineering, nutrition and chemical industry news. The full service begins in March 1996, provided by Bath Information and Data Ser~ices (B~DS). The databases ofleJ-ed are: • Analytical Abstracts • Chemical Business NewsBase • Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology Abstracts incorporating Current Biotechnology Abstracts e Chemical-Safety Data Sheets • Chemi'~d Safety NewsBase e Mass Spectrometry Bulletin • UK Nutrient Databank This service is the result of an initiative of the Joint Information Services Committee of the UK Higher Education Funding Councils (HEFC).

Visitors to the Elsevier Science stand were invited to fill in a questionnaire on their use of electronic media in scientific communication. In return they received an envelope, some of which contained the coveted gold cards. The winners were: • Christoph Klawun of Applied Automation, Bartlesvi!le, OK; • Lea Paleudis, Kent State University, Kent, OH; • Frederic Theraulaz, Univesite de Provence, Marseiile, France; • Chris Burgess, Burgess Consultancy, Barnard Castle, UK: and • Garth Swaney, Swaney Engineering, Olympia Fields, IL. Our congratulations to them all. news items News and views on recent events, activities, award winners, etc. should be sent to: TrAC Editorial Office P.O.
