VUV Analytics, Caltech Announce Collaboration
News Feb 25, 2016
The Caltech EAC is an open-access, user-operated laboratory based in the Environmental Science and Engineering Program, with the primary focus on research and analytical methods using Mass Spectrometry, Gas Chromatography, Liquid Chromatography, Ion Chromatography, and Capillary Electrophoresis.
“We are very excited to be partnering with VUV Analytics on this unique collaboration opportunity”, said Dr. Nathan Dalleska, “Our research will be focused on applying novel VUV absorption spectroscopy methodsto identifying compounds and classes of compounds withmuch greaterlevels of sensitivity and selectivity compared to other analytical approaches.”
“VUV Analytics strongly believes that academia provides the best opportunity to bring new technology to the greater scientific community”, said Sean Jameson, Vice President of Business Development at VUV Analytics “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Caltech Environmental Analysis Center to further the application potential of the VGA-100. Dr. Dalleska’s laboratory will be pioneering unexplored territory in environmental analysis.”
The VGA-100 detector has claimed the distinguished "Best New Analytical Instrument" award at the Gulf Coast Conference, emerging from a competitive field of the world's newest scientific instruments. Additionally, The Analytical Scientist named the VGA-100 a Top 5 winner in their annual Innovation Awards. Most recently, the R&D magazine named the VGA-100 a 2015 R&D 100 Market Disruptor Product Winner. These awards represent validation from leading analytical chemists of the vast potential offered by this seminal and unique approach to a largely routine and established science
Rapid Removal of Arsenic From Drinking Water...By Moss!News
A moss capable of removing arsenic from contaminated water has been discovered by researchers. And it happens quickly – in just one hour, the arsenic level is so low that the water is no longer harmful for people to drink.READ MORE
Stable Beta-Amyloid Dimers Identified in Alzheimer’s BrainsNews
A recent study exploited state-of-the-art mass spectrometry to provide the first direct evidence of beta-amyloid dimers in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and points to the potential of these molecules as biomarkers. Beta-amyloid dimers may be the smallest pathological species that trigger Alzheimer’s disease.
