Optimization of a Vacuum Ultraviolet Photoionization source for Gas Chromatography used with a High Resolution Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer
LECO Corporation

-Tune solution allows optimization of ion source parameters for
both proton transfer and direct ionization
-Independent ionization processes exist for M+ and MH+
-Optimizing for dopant signal intensity yields inferior results
-Degree of fragmentation remains relatively constant over a
range of source conditions
Analysis of Organic Marker Compounds and Hazardous Organic Compounds by GC/MS to Identify Contamination, Counterfeiting and Adulteration of Spices
SPEX CertiPrep

Our previous study of spices was designed to evaluate the metal content in the spices for evidence of contamination by heavy metals or for adulteration and counterfeiting by notable concentrations of wear or additive metals. This study targeted the same spice samples to quantify the characteristic primary and secondary market compounds for each spice group.
Development and Application of Quantitative Immunoassays for Major Milk Allergens Bos d 5 (β-lactoglobulin) and Bos d 11 (β-casein)
1. Indoor Biotechnologies, Ltd., Cardiff, Wales, UK. 2. INRA, Gif-sur-Yvette, France

In this study, we sought to develop accurate, sensitive and reliable assays that would enable quantification of multiple milk allergens.
A Novel Benchtop Time-of-Flight GC-MS System for High Performance Analysis of Human Urine
LECO Corporation

A workflow was developed and implemented for the effective comparison of urine. It involved the preparation of stable compounds through derivatization, data acquisition using a high performance benchtop TOFMS, comprehensive data processing (NonTarget Deconvolution™), and quick retrospective analysis of rich datasets using Target Analyte Finding.

Platform Agnostic Data Processing Routine for Targeted and Untargeted Metabolite Identification in Drug Discovery
