Enhancing On-line Biological Sample Processing
News Nov 09, 2016
Biological sample pretreatment is an important step in biological sample analysis. Due to the diversity of biological matrices, the analysis of target substances in these samples presents significant challenges to sample processing. To meet these emerging demands on biopharmaceutical analysis, this paper summarizes several new techniques of on-line biological sample processing: solid phase extraction, solid phase micro-extraction, column switching, limited intake filler, molecularly imprinted solid phase extraction, tubular column, and micro-dialysis. We describe new developments, principles, and characteristics of these techniques, and the application of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) in biopharmaceutical analysis with these new techniques in on-line biological sample processing.

Sleeve Gastrectomy Lowers Women’s Tolerance to AlcoholNews
A new study found that after undergoing sleeve gastrectomy, women could be legally intoxicated after drinking half the number of drinks than women who did not have this surgery. Breathalyzer values were also found to underestimate alcohol levels compared to the gold standard, gas chromatography.READ MORE

Source of a Potent Greenhouse Gas IdentifiedNews
A study of a Lake Erie wetland suggests that scientists have vastly underestimated the number of places methane-producing microbes can survive—and, as a result, today’s global climate models may be misjudging the amount of methane being released into the atmosphere.READ MORE
