Becton, Dickinson and Company has announced the global distribution of a complete portfolio of products for mass spectrometry that provides high-speed and high-confidence identification of pathogens in clinical laboratories.
Ionicon Analytik have introduced the next generation of their high-end proton transfer reaction-mass spectrometry (PTR-MS) instruments for real-time VOC monitoring.
Pfeiffer Vacuum DuoLine two-stage high-performance rotary vane pumps cover low and medium vacuum applications.
MetID typically requires analysis of mass spectrometry (MS) data to identify metabolic “hot spots” and elucidate biotransformation pathways. This remains the primary challenge despite significant instrumental and software advances. MetaSense™ overcomes these challenges and allows users to save time and improve collaborations.
Quantum mechanics dictates how particles and forces interact, and thus how atoms and molecules work, for example, what happens when a molecule goes from a higher-energy state to a lower-energy one. But beyond the simplest molecules, the details become very complex. Now, a Pixel-Imaging Mass Spectrometry camera and a femtosecond vacuum ultraviolet light source are showing how does quantum...
Salmon is one of the most popular edible fish of all. Shops sell fish caught in the wild, but their main produce is salmon from breeding farms, the effluent from which can pollute rivers, lakes and oceans. German and Chilean scientists have used fluorescence measurements, high-resolution mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to answer this question.
Drugs containing gold have been used for centuries to treat conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, they can be effective against cancer and HIV. One mechanism by which they work could occur because gold ions force the zinc ions out of zinc fingers—looped, nucleic acid binding protein domains. American researchers have characterised such “gold fingers” using ion mobility mass...
Bal Seal Engineering designs and manufactures the Bal Spring® canted coil spring, which enables designers to achieve constant ion alignment, zero contamination, and minimal downtime. These springs help advance technology in Quadrupole LC/MS, TOF LC/MS, MALDI-TOF MS, ICP-MS, and atomic spectroscopy.
Analytik Jena and Bruker Daltonics develop a new ultra-high throughput screening product for biopharmaceutical labs.
Sciex has announced the latest introduction to its X-Series quadrupole time-of-flight platform
Ionicon Analytik introduces its new compact, high-resolution VOC analyser, the PTR-TOF 4000
Shimadzu has released its new LCMS-8045 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer
By measuring the height profile of the sample prior to analysis, mass spectrometry imaging can now visualise the distribution of chemical substances on samples with non-flat surfaces.
SIFT-MS has shown promising results for the detection of cancers of the oesophagus and stomach in a large patient trial presented at the European Cancer Congress 2017.
Shimadzu have introduced the GCMS-TQ8050 triple quadrupole GC-MS, the latest in the series dating back to the GCMS-TQ8030 in 2012.
This article gives a most useful overview of the analysis and sequencing of nucleic acids by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation mass spectrometry, which should interest all readers and may well serve as a useful tutorial article.
Lithium ion batteries power most of the electrical devices we rely on every day. As well as mobile phones, laptops and tablets, they are finding increasing use in vehicles, with electric cars not uncommon on our streets. This article is from a young scientist who has won help for her research through an instrument company’s support programme. You can find out more, read the article and even...
The study of metabolites in our sewage systems is not new, but there are particular difficulties with identifying the metabolites from new psychoactive substances, or “legal highs”. The authors describe a wide range of sample collection methodologies and their analysis with mass spectrometry.
Sciex have introduced their Next-Generation Proteomics (NGP) platform.
BioPharmaView Software 2.0 from Sciex is designed for automated biotherapeutic data processing.
The Sciex BioBA Solution has been expanded to include the QTrap 6500+ LC-MS system with SelexIon+ ion mobility.
The QTrap 6500+ LC-MS/MS system from Sciex has improved sensitivity and selectivity for small molecule quantitation.
