Intact Protein LC-MS: How to Overcome the Challenges?
Robert van Ling, Evert-Jan Sneekes, Sebastiaan Dolman, Laurent Rieux, Mauro DePra, Christian Ravnsborg, Dafydd Milton, Remco Swart

Purpose: Facilitate intact protein LC-MS without compromising performance.
Methods: Construct prototypes of integrated column and sprayer dedicated for intact protein separations and compare performance.
Results: Three prototypes have been directly compared and all showed good protein separations, each with their unique area of strength.

New Sorbent from Agro-industrial Waste and its Potential Use in 17ß-Estradiol and 17α-Ethynylestradiol Removal
Suzimara Rovani*, Éder C. Lima, Renato Cataluña, Andreia N. Fernandes

In recent years, the increasing introduction of new chemicals in the market, and the development of more accurate analytical methods, added a variety of endocrine disruptors compounds (EDC). Even though they are found in very low concentrations (range of ng L-1) there is still a lack of knowledge about long-term risks of EDC for non-target organisms as well as for human health.
