Integrating perfectly within ELA, AST will provide delegates an opportunity, unique in Europe, to discuss technique and technology advancements which enhance the separations workflow and productivity. AST will bring together a long list of respected academic faculty members and leading vendors. Hot topics under discussion at the conference will include:
• Novel Separation Techniques and Methodologies
• Small Molecule Applications
• Separation Science for Mass Spectrometry
• Protein Analysis
• Trapped Ions
Select Biosciences have arranged the highest calibre keynote speakers for all ELA conference streams. AST will be addressed by Professor Karl-Siegfried Boos from the University of Munich, who will discuss “Automated Processing of Native Biofluids Up-Front to LC-MS/MS Analysis of Small Molecules”; Professor Hans Maurer of Saarland University, who will present a talk entitled "Current Role of Hyphenated Low and High Resolution Mass Spectrometry in Clinical and Forensic Toxicology"; and by Professor M. Arthur Moseley, Director of Proteomics at Duke University with a symposium on "Mass Spectrometry Based Translational Proteomics – From the Benchtop to the Bedside".
To complement and enhance the discussion around the development in separations techniques and technology, key companies will present free lunch time workshops highlighting their strategic advancements in separations technology. Dr. Ruediger Salowsky from Agilent Technologies will present on “Improving speed and automation of library QC in the next-gen sequencing workflow” on 30 June; Dr Stefan Kubicek from Perkin Elmer will present “High Content Screening for Compounds and Genes Affecting Bacterial and Viral Infections”, also on 30 June; and finally Dr Kevin Wood from Promega will present “Glosensor Technology: Intracellular Biosensors to Detect Signal Transduction in Living Cells” on 1 July.

Explosives, especially when not contained or disposed of correctly, pose a significant hazard to humans, wildlife and the ecosystem. Having the tools to be able to identify their presence and state are therefore key to combating the issue. We spoke to Stanislaw Popiel about the game-changing role that mass spectrometry is playing in the process and some of the challenges that still lie ahead.READ MORE
Mass spectrometry is an important tool for many industries, not least in ensuring the safety of our food and beverages. Hazards ranging from pesticides, to heavy metals and toxins can be identified using the technology, even if they are only present in minute quantities. Here Jenny Nelson tells us how advances in mass spectrometry have improved analysis potential and the important role it has played and will continue to play in ensuring the safety of the beverage industry.READ MORE
