|A non-destructive method to assess changes in the biomass of small-grain cereals under field conditions|
D. Villegas1, J. Lozano2 and C. Royo1
The poster describes a non-destructive method to assess biomass based on remote sensing techniques. This method is suitable for field phenotyping and it is useful to assess biomass evolution as well as to estimate radiation use efficiency.
|Genetic integrity of rice seeds during ageing and gene bank storage by SSR analysis|
I. O. Daniel, K. A. Adeboye, O. W. Adabale, E. S. Aladele and A. Boerner
Rice seeds loose germination capacity with ageing. Loses in genetic integrity was found to occur during artificial ageing at a time when percentage germination declined to 54%.
|Characterization of nitrogen use efficiency in a winter wheat collection|
István Monostori, Tamás Árendás, Fruzsina Szira, Gábor Galiba, Borbála Hoffmann, Attila Vágújfalvi
The first-year dataset of the three year experiment has been analysed. To find out, which genotype is recommended for intensive and which one is for extensive cultivation, the performances of the varieties were characterized under low and also under favourable nitrogen supply. The varieties were also ranked based on the increased level of their performance due to the nitrogen supply. Correlations between the measured phenotypic data and the NUE parameters were also calculated.

|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.
|Instant Connect Gas Sampling Valve Module Introducing a New Flexibility in Gas Sampling for GC and GCMS|
Stefano Pelagatti, Paolo Magni, Fausto Pigozzo
Purpose: We present a newly developed gas sampling valve module for the Thermo Scientific™ TRACE™ 1300 Series Gas Chromatograph (GC).
|GC-MS/MS ANALYSIS OF BENZODIAZEPINES USING ANALYTE PROTECTANTS|
Jeremy Matthews, Alex Chen, Flavio Bedini
Purpose: Assess the feasibility of using analyte protectants to improve the analysis of benzodiazepines.
|GC-MS/MS Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Green Tea Extracted by QuEChERS with Acetonitrile as Final Solvent|
Cojocariu C., Morgan P., Silcock P., Pelagatti S., Magni P. and Pigozzo F.
This poster describes the analysis of several challenging pesticides from green tea samples using GC-MS/MS and acetonitrile as final extraction solvent. The compounds analysed are representatives of various classes of pesticides, such as carboxamids, OC, OP, pyrethriods, aromatic, phenylamides.
|Exploring The Benefits Of Automated Unattended Sample Derivatization Prior To Gas Chromatography Analysis|
A. Caruso, M. Santoro, P. Magni, S. Pelagatti, R. Facchetti
Purpose: Exploring the possibility to perform the sample preparation steps necessary for the derivatization of analytes in a fully automated and reliable way by means of the same robotic sampler used for sample injection into the gas chromatograph.
Methods: As an example of application we screened dairy products for melamine and its derivates presence via GC-MS/MS.
Results: The outcome are good and precise results that show how it is possible to reliably automate sample preparation opera
