AB SCIEX to Present ESI-MS Workshop
News Apr 22, 2014
SCIEX Separations, part of AB SCIEX, will present a workshop, “Low-flow ESI-MS workflows that Increase Efficiency,” at the 41st International Symposium on High-Performance Liquid-Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2014). The workshop will be held on Monday, May 12 from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m.
The workshop will discuss the latest developments in the use of low-flow separations techniques with mass spectrometry – microLC-MS and the integration of capillary electrophoresis with electrospray ionization (CESI-MS). These techniques deliver increased sensitivity and throughput, combined with reduced ion suppression and solvent consumption compared to analytical flow LC-MS.
Examples in the presentation will include robust drug quantitation in urine, steroids in dried blood spots, and the benefits of ultra-low flow ESI-MS for the characterization of biologics
A skin swab test for Parkinson's has become a real possibility, after mass spectrometry was used to detect altered levels of specific compounds on the skin of people with the condition. The research is a result of the incredible ability of one woman to detect a unique odor on the skin of people with Parkinson's disease. These findings open the door to a non-invasive screening test.READ MORE
