Uncovering the Food Chain’s Hidden Dangers: Low Level Dioxin Quantification by GC-MS/MS
Uncovering the Food Chain’s Hidden Dangers: Low Level Dioxin Quantification by GC-MS/MS
Blog

Dioxins pose a significant risk to human health and are carcinogenic even at trace levels. Consumption of contaminated food is a common route of dioxin exposure. To ensure consumer safety, accurate detection and quantification of dioxins in food and animal feed is essential.

Accelerating Proteome Analysis With PASEF: A Unique and Sensitive Technique
Accelerating Proteome Analysis With PASEF: A Unique and Sensitive Technique
Blog

Understanding the proteome is a fundamental challenge of biology. Here, Bruker Daltonics' Gary Kruppa and Scarlet Koch outline a new method, Parallel Accumulation Serial Fragmentation (PASEF) that offers faster, more sensitive and more robust proteome analysis, giving scientists the potential to discover low-level, biologically significant proteins and validate them in research.

Providing Peace of Mind: Ultra Low-Level Detection of Pesticides in Baby Food
Providing Peace of Mind: Ultra Low-Level Detection of Pesticides in Baby Food
Blog

Pesticides are widely used to protect food crops from damage and consequently have the potential to end up in the food we eat. Young children and babies can be particularly susceptible to pesticide residues in food so testing for pesticide residues in food, and baby food in particular, is therefore critical for the preservation of human health.

How Native MS and Charge Algorithms Can Improve Protein Analysis
How Native MS and Charge Algorithms Can Improve Protein Analysis
Blog

Native Mass Spectrometry (MS) can be used to examine proteins in their natural, folded forms. In this blog, Marshall Bern, Ph.D., the Vice President of Research and Co-Founder of Protein Metrics, discusses how advances in this technique are being paired with cutting-edge charge deconvolution algorithms to improve analysis of antibodies and plasma glycoproteins.

Cinderella and Mass Spectrometry: Insightful Multi-Dimensional Data Analysis
Blog

Proteomics is a powerful technology for analyzing low-abundance proteins for disease research. But it’s stalled by imprecise and often irreproducible data analysis. Here, David Chiang, Founder of Sage-N Research, explains how his company uses multidimensional separation to improve peptide identification in MS/MS.

Data-Independent Acquisition: A Superior Technique in Mass Spectrometry?
Data-Independent Acquisition: A Superior Technique in Mass Spectrometry?
Blog

Whilst Mass Spectrometry is undoubted in its status as a central part of the proteomics toolkit, there is still debate about the way that MS data should be acquired and analyzed. Here, we talk to Florian Marty, Director Global Product Support at Biognosys AG, about why he believes that data-independent acquisition is a superior acquisition technique.

With justice and health in the balance, modern forensic toxicology drug testing labs are expected to detect and quantify a wide range of drugs and metabolites, from Fentanyl to novel psychoactive substances (NPS), at very low levels in biological matrices. The drug concentrations also need to be correlated with the impairment of the individual with absolute certainty, but labs face increasing pressures due to growing caseloads, sample backlogs, and budget restrictions.
