Mass Spectrometry’s Important Role in Identifying Explosives in the Environment


Explosives, especially when not contained or disposed of correctly, pose a significant hazard to humans, wildlife and the ecosystem. Having the tools to be able to identify their presence and state are therefore key to combating the issue. We spoke to Stanislaw Popiel about the game-changing role that mass spectrometry is playing in the process and some of the challenges that still lie ahead.


How Advances in Mass Spectrometry Are Helping the Food and Beverage Industry


Mass spectrometry is an important tool for many industries, not least in ensuring the safety of our food and beverages. Hazards ranging from pesticides, to heavy metals and toxins can be identified using the technology, even if they are only present in minute quantities. Here Jenny Nelson tells us how advances in mass spectrometry have improved analysis potential and the important role it has played and will continue to play in ensuring the safety of the beverage industry.
