In the spirit of the upcoming 2019 ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, we take a moment to highlight critical aspects affecting current LC and LC-MS workflows and detail new technologies designed with analytical “problem solving” in mind.
Here we highlight a few new HPLC/UHPLC instrument platforms -- those which offer superior flexibility and performance for today’s unique analytical challenges.
Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry offers a unique layer of separations power and adds yet another dimension for complex, high-throughput applications.
The “smart” laboratory trend has now expanded to include “intelligent” high-end analytical devices – aiming to increase workflow efficiencies and instrument productivity -- while reducing costs and instrument downtime.
These trends may enable more complete biomarker panel validation, greater coverage in complex metabolomics areas such as lipidomics, and ultra high-resolution imaging of complex tissues such as brain.
This year, many interesting developments entered the mass spectrometry field and, as the year draws to a close, it’s time to take a closer look at a few examples and note their impact in helping research attain an even greater vantage point than before.
Here we take a look at modern mass spectrometry approaches for food and beverage analysis – focusing this month on wine.
The evolving state of the industry and the reality of next generation proteomics - two themes evident at ASMS 2018 that may well change the MS world.
Mass spectrometry is a highly sensitive technique, and accordingly, applications including trace analysis of complex mixtures require high purity water.
We detail some of the fundamentals of liquid chromatography and examine emerging trends and new products -- with special focus on nanoflow and chip-based technologies.
Poor quality data such as shifting retention times, loss of resolution, or ghost peaks could be an indication of contamination caused by lab water quality.
Beyond instrument horsepower, enabling solutions are needed more than ever to ensure quality and efficiency of upstream workflows. Here are recent examples.
There are many challenges in the cannabis testing industry -- from a cost perspective, sourcing the right analytical testing equipment can of critical value.
Many factors are at play in the cannabis testing business, and quality instrument vendors are sensitive to the needs and limitations of start up labs. The most important (and expensive) aspects involve securing the equipment, hiring the chemists and staff, and configuring the infrastructure to house the operation.
