Thermo Scientific Gas Chromatograph Receives Novel Technology Award
News Dec 14, 2012
Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the Thermo Scientific TRACE™ 1300 Series Gas Chromatography system has received the Novelties in Technology 2012 award at HET Instrument 2012, the largest exhibition for analytical instrumentation in Benelux.
Massimo Santoro, GC Marketing Manager at Thermo Fisher Scientific, says, “The TRACE 1300 Series GC is changing the way people perceive and use a gas chromatograph. The unique instant connect modularity-made available to the industry for the first time-enables any GC or GC/MS user to quickly modify the instrument configuration to accommodate any applications or simply cut maintenance downtime to zero. We are really pleased to have won the prestigious HET award, which exemplifies the vision and commitment of Thermo Fisher Scientific to develop innovative technologies that address the needs of its customers."

Changes Identified in Body Cells During Type2 Diabetes OnsetNews
Researchers have found fresh evidence to explain the processes that occur in the body’s cells leading to the onset of type2 diabetes. Utilising metabolomics, results showed that amino acids play a contributory role in the onset of type2 diabetes in some younger and older patients, as the metabolism of specific amino acids is adversely affected.
Honey Bee Gut Metabolome Reveals How They Cope With a Pollen Rich DietNews
The honey bee gut is colonized by specialized bacteria that help digest components of the floral pollen diet and produce molecules that likely promote bee health. Researchers studied the metabolome from the bee gut and have uncovered which bacterial species perform which specific digestive functions.
Novel Isotope Tracking Method Offers Hope for Threatened SpeciesNews
Locating even a single nest of the secretive goshawk required weeks of exploration. So scientists decided to conduct elemental analysis using strontium, which has naturally occurring isotopes found everywhere on Earth that travel the food chain from the soil to plants to herbivores and predators. Analysing prey remains enabled the researchers to determine where the birds of prey were hunting, findings that could help steer conservation efforts for goshawks and other vulnerable species.READ MORE
