SCIEX announces the 7th Berliner LC-MS/MS Symposium
SCIEX has announced it will be holding the 7th LC-MS/MS Symposium in Berlin, Germany, on March 14th 2017. The Symposium includes a diverse programme of talks about the latest mass spectrometry methods and applications, from internationally respected researchers and analytical scientists. There will also be training courses available to users on March 13th. The conference programme and online registration are now available.
The Symposium includes a plenary session that will focus on trends and new developments in mass spectrometry, followed by an afternoon of talks divided into six parallel themes. These themes are: food analysis, environmental and drinking water analysis, clinical chemistry, pharmaceutical analysis, toxicology and forensics, and biochemistry and omics applications. Speakers include Prof Gérard Hopfgartner, University of Geneva, Switzerland; Prof Jens Brockmeyer, Stuttgart University, Germany; Dr Wolfgang Schulz, Zweckverband Landeswasserversorgung, Stuttgart; Prof Mario Thevis, Sport University Cologne; Dr Torsten Binscheck-Domaß, Labor Berlin, and a number of other high profile scientists. The Symposium will also feature a small exhibition with stands from life science companies, as well as a poster session and two discussion rounds on the day after the Symposium.
The Symposium has grown in popularity since the first conference, with over 600 attendees at the last meeting. The 7th Berliner LC-MS/MS Symposium will take place at the Estrel Hotel Berlin, and is open for mass spec users as well as life science journalists to attend.

Nanotexturing Creates Bacteria-Killing Spikes on Stainless Steel SurfacesNews
By using an electrochemical etching process on a common stainless steel alloy, researchers have created a nanotextured surface that kills bacteria while not harming mammalian cells. If additional research supports early test results, the process might be used to attack microbial contamination on implantable medical devices and on food processing equipment made with the metal.READ MORE
Microbes Help Turn Greek Yogurt Waste Into FuelNews
Consumers across the world enjoy Greek yogurt for its taste, texture, and protein-packed punch. Reaching that perfect formula, however, generates large volumes of food waste in the form of liquid whey. Now researchers have found a way to use bacteria to turn the leftover sugars and acids from Greek yogurt into molecules that could be used in biofuels or safe feedstock additives.READ MORE
Giant Storms Cause Palpitations in Saturn’s Atmospheric HeartbeatNews
Composite Infrared Spectrometry reveals immense northern storms on Saturn can disturb atmospheric patterns at the planet’s equator. This effect is also seen in Earth’s atmosphere, suggesting the two planets are more alike than previously thought.READ MORE
