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...

Models for predicting chromatographic behaviour on single and coupled columns which have aged have been adapted to correct the time and peak profiles.

Columns calculations converted to account for ageing

Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

May 30, 2018

Modelling techniques allow for the prediction of the chromatographic behaviour of many compounds, but in practice much chromatography is carried out on old columns, the properties of which will probably have changed over time. Scientists from the University of Valencia, Spain, looked at how models could be adapted to account for the changes in HPLC column properties over the years.

Models have been derived for the transfer and prediction of retention time from a reference GC column to the target column using experimental data for a separate mixture of compounds, based on the thermodynamic‐based parameters of the target compound on the reference column.
