Grant to Fund Million Peaks Project
The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a prestigious Advanced Grant to Prof. Peter Schoenmakers, Prof. Albert Polman and Prof. Huib Bakker, all three of whom work at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).
Altered Metabolism of Four Compounds Drives Glioblastoma Growth
Findings suggest new ways to treat the malignancy, slow its progression and reveal its extent more precisely.
Why Bearcats Smell Like Buttered Popcorn
Researchers pinpoint chemical compound that gives rare animal its popcorn-like scent.
Human Gut Microbiome Evolution
Westerners have a less-diverse gut microbiome compared to hunter-gatherers, but how and why these microbe collections diverged has largely remained a mystery.
Potential Diagnostic for Dengue Fever
Scientists from Colorado State University have explored the use of small molecules in patient serum for diagnosis of dengue fever and potentially predicting progression to the severe disease.
Non-Destructive Sensing of Fish Freshness
Is there any reliable way to know whether frozen fish is fresh or not?
‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Portable Kit Can Recover Traces of Chemical Evidence
A chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a portable version of his method for recovering trace chemicals such as environmental pollutants and forensic evidence including secret graves and arson fire debris.
Diagnosis of Two Rare Childhood Diseases Improved
For the first time, researchers have developed tests that could improve the diagnosis of two rare childhood diseases known as congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDGs) and metachromatic leukodystrophy, and that could even lead to new treatments for CDGs.

Automated sample preparation for the determination of testosterone in serum by LC-MSMS

Tecan Group Ltd.

Prior to any analysis by LC-MSMS, a sample clean-up step is recommended to remove matrix components such as proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and salts. Compared to most conventional sample preparation methods, this new approach has fewer processing steps and is easier to automate, as well as having the advantage that the final eluate can be injected directly into an LC-MSMS system, enabling quantitative analysis without the need for reconstitution. 

The centrepiece of the new sample preparation method is the AC Extraction Plate with TICE™ technology. The AC Extraction Plate offers a fast, robust and easy-to-automate analytical sample preparation method requiring minimal sample pre-treatment. Time consuming, difficult to automate procedures such as protein precipitation, filtration or centrifugation are eliminated, accelerating and simplifying the entire sample preparation workflow. The extraction can be performed manually, or be easily automated on a liquid handling platform.
