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 Fatal AttractionNews
Malaria causes the bodies of its human hosts to emit specific odours from the skin that make the hosts even more attractive to mosquitoes, perpetuating transmission. Researchers have now identified the odours as organic hydrocarbons heptanal, octanal and nonanal, whose discovery could bring relief to a disease that claimed nearly half a million lives in 2016.READ MORE
