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.
Markes International’s success in exporting scientific instrumentation has been rewarded with an accolade from the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT).
New database enables the rapid screening and identification of drugs by Direct Analysis in Real Time (DART®) mass spectrometry.
Waters and Restek have entered into a co-marketing agreement to give food safety laboratories access to gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) instrumentation and consumables for pesticide residue GC-MS analyses.
As well as being inedible, LC-MS analysis has shown that 3000+ year-old cheese was contaminated with the bacterium that causes brucellosis.
Isotope ratio MS has shown that whale sharks, the world’s largest fish, roam less than previously thought. This greater understanding of their habits is important for their conservation.
Waters acquires exclusive rights to desorption electrospray ionisation (DESI) technology for all mass spectrometry applications from Prosolia and PRF.
Direct infusion mass spectrometry has been used to distinguish between authenticated and forged manuscripts attributed to Scottish poet Robert Burns
Generally, only the behaviour of a single excitation and its consequences are investigated in 2D spectroscopy, but new techniques are being developed using two excitations.
Applications for this prestigious award are invited by 30 November 2018.
An LC-MS/MS method for food allergen testing has received First Action Official Method classification from AOAC International.
