Accurate Mass Spectral Database: Harnessing the Power of High Performance Mass Spectrometry at Long Last
LECO Corporation, Moscow State University

Standard mixtures comprising of alkanes, PAHs, semivolatiles, and pesticides were analyzed using a high resolution time-of-flight (HRTOF) mass spectrometer—Pegasus GC-HRT (LECO Corporation, Saint Joseph,MI)—at 10 spectra-per-second (m/z40–300) in high resolution mode (25,000 at FWHH). The resulting chromatographic peaks were automatically found, deconvoluted, and curated into an Accurate Mass Library (AML).

Aseptic Identification of Polysorbates using Handheld Raman
Rigaku Raman Technologies

As polysorbates are reactive to light and air, packaging is usually in thick, dark, amber bottles. This makes the identification process more difficult, as opening the container could compromise the sterility and quality of these materials. Handheld Raman is capable of identifying these materials without any sampling or preparation.

Simple sample preparation for the determination of vitamin D in serum by LC-MSMS
Tecan Group Ltd.

A growing number of laboratories have moved from the use of immunoassay methods to liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MSMS) for the determination of vitamin D. The advantage of the latter method is unparalleled specificity combined with high sensitivity, offering the potential for the determination of multiple analytes, such as 25OH-vitamin D3 and 25OH-vitamin D2.
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.
Colony Picking - fully automated screening of fungi
Tecan Group Ltd.

Manual screening processes are very costly and time consuming. This ambitious project for high throughput screening (HTS) of cellulase-producing fungal strains demonstrates the high capacity and unique features of the Freedom EVO colony picking workstation. The picking of fungi is more complex than for typical bacterial colonies, and requires advanced selection criteria to be combined with complex pipetting and a tip movement that mimics the manual picking process.
