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...

Hybrid isoprenoids from six MAR4 Streptomyces strains isolated from the Madeira Archipelago were studied by LC‐MS/MS and their metabolomic profiles were compared using multivariate statistical analysis in the search for metabolites that inhibit biofilm production in clinically and commercially important biofilm-forming bacteria.

Theoretical descriptions of electrophoresis have been implemented in computer simulation programs, but improvements to these are needed to adequately represent the conditions used in practice. A multi-centre team of researchers, from Charles University (Prague), Agilent Technologies (Waldbronn, Germany) and the CIMEC institute (Santa Fe, Argentina), have developed an improved model for electrophoresis, applying it to the electrokinetic chromatography (EKC) variant of capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE)...

Toxicology laboratories have to deal with a huge number of drugs and other compounds, including some, such as new psychoactive substances (NPSs), where standard samples and even library data may not be readily available. Scientists from the University Hospital of Rennes (France) and the University of Geneva used molecular networking software, which identifies similarities in spectral data, on LC-MS/MS results from three different toxicology cases.
