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...

Developments in Analysis of Drugs and Metabolites in Skeletal Remains

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,...

AICAR is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, but can also be used as a performance-enhancing drug in sports. Scientists from the French Anti-Doping Agency in Paris have developed an improved method for distinguishing natural AICAR from that derived from doping using GC-C-IRMS (gas chromatography, combustion, isotope ratio mass spectrometry).

Lianqiao Baidu pills are a popular traditional Chinese medicine made from a mixture of herbal ingredients, but up to now there has been no accurate way to analyse their quality. Researchers from Shenyang Pharmaceutical University in China categorised the quality of this material using extraction, HPLC, measurements of its antioxidant power and chemometric methods.

Selected key technologies of the analytical science industry are discussed by Steve Down with reference to burgeoning application areas and the scope for future improvements.

Ion source pressure plays a significant role in the process of ionization and the subsequent ion transmission inside a mass spectrometer. Pressurizing the ion source to a gas pressure greater than atmospheric pressure is a relatively new approach that aims to further improve the performance of atmospheric pressure ionization sources. A brief review on the development of super-atmospheric pressure ion sources, including high-pressure electrospray, field desorption and superheated ESI, and the strategies to...

In the current context of international conflicts and localized terrorist actions, there is unfortunately a permanent threat of attacks with unconventional warfare agents. Among these, biological agents such as toxins, microorganisms, and viruses deserve particular attention owing to their ease of production and dissemination. Mass spectrometry-based techniques for the detection and quantification of biological agents have a decisive role to play for countermeasures in a scenario of biological attacks.
