Analytical Chemistry to Quantify Municipal Wastewater Treatment Technology Performance and Benefits to Environmental Health
Date: May 24, 2017 - 15:00
Continuous improvements in GC/MS and LC/MS have revealed a stunning array of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in municipal wastewaters. What is known from global studies is that exposure to biologically active compounds, even at ng/L concentrations, can impact endocrine systems in nature and manifest as negative impacts like altered gene regulation, the presence of mixed reproductive tissues (intersex) and skewed sex ratios. Advancing Canadian Wastewater Assets (ACWA) is a research...

The analytical demands for detecting organic contaminants in water at low ng/L level have pushed the development of new methodologies using LC/TQ instrumentation. In this regard, and in the last few years, advances in sensitivity and selectivity have made this challenge possible. This webinar will focus on the use of the new 6470 LC-MS-MS from Agilent Technologies for the sub ng/L level detection of several pharmaceuticals and pesticides in surface waters. Examples of optimization of several source...

Bone remains are one of the least characterized and most challenging matrices for forensic toxicological analysis. Before the forensic utility of the matrix may be fully realized, controlled experiments must be carried out. This presentation will highlight the value that UPLC-based approaches have brought to the drug analysis of bone samples. In addition, we will discuss the most recent findings in analytical developments using UPLC-QTof mass spectrometry, including: dramatic enhancements in sensitivity,...
Peptide Hormones in Sports Drug Testing: Detection of Emerging Protein/Peptide Based Drugs by Means of LC-MS
Date: Nov 10, 2016 - 15:00
Therapeutic proteins and peptides have emerged as one of the most important classes of new pharmaceuticals. Several drug candidates with potential performance-enhancing properties are currently in preclinical or clinical development. The current version of the WADA Prohibited List includes a variety of protein/peptide-based doping agents, some of which can be detected in biological samples by using immunological and mass spectrometry-based approaches.
Targeted, Semi-targeted and Non-targeted Screening Approaches Using UPLC/QTof Technology with the UNIFI Scientific Information System for Forensic Toxicology Analysis
Date: Dec 1, 2015 - 15:00
For high resolution MS to become accessible to the routine forensic toxicology laboratory, powerful and easy to use informatics is essential to process the large volume of data produced and successfully detect and identify components. This webinar will present on UPLC/QTof technology working in MS^E mode and the Waters UNIFI Scientific Information System for targeted, semi targeted and untargeted screening.
Investigating Metabolomic Time of Death Using a Novel High-Resolution Orbitrap-based GC-MS/MS System
Date: Sep 17, 2015 - 15:00
In this webinar Karl Burgess, a lead scientist in metabolomics research from Glasgow Polyomics and Cristian Cojocariu, senior application scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific, will talk about solutions to some of the analytical challenges in metabolomics research using the new Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ GC hybrid quadrupole-Orbitrap GC-MS/MS System.
Turbulent Flow Liquid Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry in a UK Laboratory: Research into Potential Applications for Clinical Chemistry and Therapeutic Drug Monitoring
Date: May 19, 2015 - 15:00
With advances in fast chromatography techniques, and highly sensitive and selective detection methods such as mass spectrometry, high-throughput bioanalytical methods can now be easily developed. Turbulent flow liquid chromatography was developed in the late 1990s, and combines 'size exclusion' and traditional stationary phase column chemistry to separate macromolecules, such as proteins, from smaller molecules and analytes of interest in biological fluids. In this presentation, two senior scientists from...
Date: May 5, 2015 - 16:00
This webinar provides an introduction to SimGlycan software for high throughput glycan identification and quantitation. We show examples of the use of the software for LC-MS/MS workflows for 2-AB labelled glycans, processing data for quantitative workflows using the recently introduced Thermo Scientific™ Tandem Mass Tag™ Reagents. In an effort toward rapid profiling and identification of glycans, we have developed web based software modules to facilitate construction of custom databases.
