Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Tree metabolite identification combats beetle devastation

The emerald ash borer is an invasive beetle that is currently destroying vast numbers of ash trees in North America. Scientists from Trent University, Peterborough and RB Consulting (both Ontario, Canada) used LC-MS to compare the metabolites from ash trees attacked by the insect with those from unaffected trees, thus providing a convenient method of early detection.

Optimize Laboratory Productivity through System Utilization Monitoring and Business Analytics

System utilization is often recognized as the key to unlocking operational insights for effective laboratory productivity. However, the definitions of system utilization can vary greatly and can have dramatically different use models. Join us to discover the many ways to look at and interpret utilization data as well as other asset management data to build a complete picture of your lab. In this webinar, we will cover the multiple sources of utilization data, review the benefits and limitations of each...

Glucocorticoid steroids are sometimes illegally added to face masks, but the unambiguous detection and quantification of such compounds can be difficult since they often have similar structures. Researchers from Hunan University, Changsha, China, used LC-MS in combination with an alternating trilinear decomposition (ATLD) algorithm to separate closely related glucocorticoids.

The accurate prediction of GC retention times from thermodynamic properties is useful in order to save time and money, but still remains a challenge. Scientists from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, developed a mathematical model for retention times, successfully applying it to five different compounds.

PCA was applied to analyze the liquid chromatograms from 3 different genes to identify mutated samples in lymphoma and breast cancer patients with a good ratio of prediction.
