In areas, such as food analysis where detection of contaminants may be imperative to prevent dangers to consumers, speed and reliability is key. We spoke to Tim Jenkins from Waters Corporation, about their coupling of DART to the QDa mass detector with a software solution aimed to enhance compound identification.Read More
Life science businesses are facing growing demand to keep pace in an era of fast-evolving technology. By recognising the potential challenges, a growing number of companies are leveraging the resources and creativity of their suppliers. We took a look at the landscape of optofluidics R&D.Read More
Gold nanorods are increasingly being used in diagnostic applications, such as lateral flow assays. To learn more, we got in touch with Darren Rowles, CEO of Sona Nanotech Inc. who provides insights on diagnostic industry trends, and tells us about the source, application and production process of gold nanoparticles.Read More
Dioxins pose a significant risk to human health and are carcinogenic even at trace levels. Consumption of contaminated food is a common route of dioxin exposure. To ensure consumer safety, accurate detection and quantification of dioxins in food and animal feed is essential.
We recently spoke to Bruker’s JoAnne Bruno, Director Sales and Marketing and Sven Malik, Senior Application Specialist, to learn how surface plasmon resonance can be used to investigate the binding properties of small molecules, and how it can help researchers make better decisions about drug candidates and support efforts to design new molecules.Read More
Understanding the proteome is a fundamental challenge of biology. Here, Bruker Daltonics' Gary Kruppa and Scarlet Koch outline a new method, Parallel Accumulation Serial Fragmentation (PASEF) that offers faster, more sensitive and more robust proteome analysis, giving scientists the potential to discover low-level, biologically significant proteins and validate them in research.Read More
As the research landscape changes, the standards of data integrity that guide research must also change. New data tools, systems and formats provide pitfalls and opportunities for advancing the cause of data integrity. In this blog, we discuss integrity in modern research with John Sadler, Vice President and General Manager of Agilent’s Software & Informatics Division.Read More
