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...

Yin-Chen-Hao-Tang is a traditional Chinese medicine consisting of a mixture of three herbs, but there is some controversy as to the best way to prepare it. Researchers from the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica and the Southwest University of Science and Technology (Mianyang, China) used chemometric techniques to compare the traditional and modern methods of producing Yin-Chen-Hao-Tang. 

Parallel‐reaction monitoring and data‐independent analysis using a hybrid Quadrupole–Orbitrap mass spectrometer have been compared for the quantification of neuropeptides in animal spinal cord tissues using Bland–Altman plots and variance analysis.

The measurement of human intestinal absorption is important in the development of new drugs, but often relies on animal studies, which are expensive and, from an ethical perspective, should be eliminated if suitable alternatives can be found. Researchers from the University of Huddersfield and the University of Greenwich used micellar liquid chromatography to determine micelle-water partition coefficients for various drug compounds using sodium deoxycholate micelles, employing these coefficients to...
