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
Arrow Poison Potential Male Birth ControlNews
Women have many options for oral contraceptives that are safe, effective and reversible, but despite decades of research, men have none. Now, scientists report a rat study that shows they finally have a good lead for a male birth control pill. It's based on ouabain, a plant extract that African warriors and hunters traditionally used as a heart-stopping poison on their arrows.READ MORE
