LC-MS/MS enables analysis of a wider range of hormones from whales and a more reliable pregnancy test.
A new research project in partnership between academia, companies and the Netherlands Forensic Institute to develop ways to chain analytical techniques together to gain complementary information.
An experimental fingerprint detection approach can tell whether an individual has actually consumed cocaine or simply handled it based on the presence of a metabolite.
Mass spectrometry imaging is offering a first step in determining the age of fingerprints from the degradation of triacylglycerols.
A state-of-the-art fingerprint detection technology can identify traces of heroin on human skin, even after someone has washed their hands, and can discriminate between an individual who has used the drug or shaken hands with someone who has handled it.
Using mass spectrometry, scientists at the University of Southampton have shown how a specific type of symbiotic algae, which lives in coral tissue, is able to adapt and survive the hotter seawater temperatures caused by global warming.
Markes International has received two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in the “Innovation” and “International Trade” categories.
MOBILion’s ion mobility separations technology—Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulation (SLIM)—is to be integrated with Agilent’s Q-TOF mass spectrometry platform.
Scientists at Münster University use dual-beam lasers to increase the resolution of MALDI MS imaging.
Shimadzu has opened a branch office in Sweden, which will market Shimadzu’s full range of analytical instrumentation solutions.
New method developed at the University of Warwick can analyse highly complex mixtures through maintaining almost constant resolving power across the full mass range analysed.
The new matrix-assisted ionisation in vacuum (MAIV) technique has been used to generate mass spectrometry images for the first time. The technique’s ability to generate multiply charged ions from peptides and proteins facilitates their identification by tandem mass spectrometry.
Young scientists can apply for laboratory bench space for their own research in “Shimadzu Laboratory World”.
HighChem, provider of mass spectrometry software, has been acquired by Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Biotage and Yingsheng are to collaborate in the Chinese market for clinical mass spectrometry applications.
Verdel Instruments Ltd, a spin-out company of the University of Warwick, UK, has developed new two-dimensional mass spectrometry technology and has raised seed investment.
Hiden Analytical have opened a new company, Hiden Analytical Europe GmbH.
The ABS Trust is seeking applications for the Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award and the new Edward Steers bursary, both open to early career scientists.
When assessing a burn patient, doctors use factors such as the depth and size of the burn, as well as the time required for re-epithelialisation. Another, possibly more accurate way to classify burn severity has been developed through analysing the proteome of blister fluid by mass spectrometry.
Researchers have developed a new mass spectrometry technique to analyse cell membrane proteins in situ which could revolutionise the way in which we study diseases, such as cancer, metabolic and heart diseases.
