LECO to Host Webinar on GC-TOFMS Flavor Analysis
News Aug 12, 2013
On Thursday, September 19 at 10 am EST (1600 hours CET), LECO Corporation will hold a complimentary e-seminar titled The Importance of Using GC-TOFMS (Gas Chromatography-Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry) for Flavor and Off-Flavor Analysis for Packaging-Related Issues.
Presented by Ray Marsili of Marsili Consulting Group, this live, 45-minute e-seminar will discuss how GC-TOFMS can be used to resolve “hidden” chromatographic peaks in food samples, resulting in higher-quality spectra and more accurate peak determinations.
The presentation will include examples of coelution problems that can occur when analyzing complex samples such as extracts from packaging materials.
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, and the event will be archived for future reference.
This free e-seminar is part of an ongoing series offered by LECO on various topics of interest to lab managers and technicians.
Arrow Poison Potential Male Birth ControlNews
Women have many options for oral contraceptives that are safe, effective and reversible, but despite decades of research, men have none. Now, scientists report a rat study that shows they finally have a good lead for a male birth control pill. It's based on ouabain, a plant extract that African warriors and hunters traditionally used as a heart-stopping poison on their arrows.READ MORE

A Step Toward Ridding Register Receipts of BPANews
Although the U.S and other countries have banned or restricted the use of bisphenol A (BPA) because of environmental and health concerns, it is still used in thermally printed receipts and labels. Now researchers report that they have developed potentially safer polymers that could replace BPA for printed papers.READ MORE
