COVID Sweat Sensor Catches Your Immune System Before It Goes Berserk

Video

Doctors recognized that patients who developed a surge of pro-inflammatory immune proteins, also known as a “cytokine storm,” following SARS-CoV-2 infection were often the sickest and at the greatest risk of dying. Researchers have developed a wristwatch-like device that can continuously track cytokine levels through a patient’s sweat, allowing doctors time to proactively administer medications like steroids if they see cytokine levels rising.

Mass Spectrometry Ionization
Article

Mass spectrometry (MS) plays a vital role in many aspects of our lives, from diagnosing illness and detecting food contaminants to fighting fraud. In order for a sample to be analyzed by MS, it must however, first be ionized. There are a number of ways of achieving sample ionization depending on the sample type, target analyte and desired workflow. In this article, we consider some common ionization techniques and sample types for which they are best suited.

Types of Ion Detector for Mass Spectrometry
Article

A key element to all mass spectrometry (MS) systems is the type of detector used to convert a current of mass separated ions into measurable signal. Different types of detectors are used depending upon factors including dynamic range, spatial information retention, noise and suitability to the mass analyzer. In this article, we consider some of the commonly used detectors.
