Application Notes
Automated Sample Preparation of 25-OH-Vitamin D3/D2 from Serum with the AC Extraction Plate and the Tecan Freedom EVO® for the quantification by LC-MS/MS
Tecan Group Ltd.

There is an increasing demand for the determination of Vitamin D status which is based on the quantification of the two metabolites 25-OH-Vitamin D3/D2. Numerous laboratories have moved from the use of immunoassay methods to liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) because of its specificity combined with high sensitivity. Moreover LC-MS/MS offers the potential for multianalyte determination which is required for Vitamin D status determination.
Sample preparation with the AC Extraction Plate: extraction of urinary THC metabolites for LC-MSMS quantification

Turbidometric Growth Curve Measurements and Liquid Evaporation Studies with a Microplate Photometer
Thermo Fisher Scientific

The turbidity of a liquid sample is traditionally measured either with a nephelometer or a photometer. The measure of turbidity (also called optical density, OD) refers to the scattering of light from the particles of the measured sample. When measuring turbidity of a bacterial culture, the amount of scattered light is directly proportional to the number of bacterial cells in the sample.

Determination of Total Cyanide in Municipal Wastewater and Drinking Water Using Ion-Exclusion Chromatography with Pulsed Amperometric Detection (ICE-PAD)
Dionex Corporation

Cyanide is a well known acute toxin that prevents cellular respiration by irreversibly binding with the iron in cytochrome C oxidase. In addition, thiocyanate, which is metabolized from cyanide, interferes with iodine uptake by the thyroid gland, causing goiters and other long-term iodine deficiency diseases.
