Agilent also sponsors undergraduate and graduate internship opportunities for students to gain practical work experience in technical and nontechnical disciplines.
Chinese researchers have developed interfacially polymerized porous polymer particles for low- abundance glycopeptide separation. These polymer particles - with hydrophilic-hydrophobic heterostructured nanopores - can separate low-abundance glycopeptides from complex biological samples with high-abundance background molecules efficiently.
