• On Monday, June 10, Dr. Marcos Eberlin of the Thomson Mass Spectrometry Laboratory at the University of Campinas in Brazil will present Comprehensive Characterization of Petroleum Fractions by Ultra High Resolution ESI-TOF and GCxGC-LRTOF.
• On Tuesday, June 11, Dr. Lisa Strong of the Biotechnology Institute at the University of Minnesota will present Understanding the Chemical Composition of Hydraulic Fracturing (Waste)water.
• On Wednesday, June 12, Dr. Vladimir V. Tolstikov of Eli Lilly and Company will present High Resolution GC-MS for Metabolomics Applications.
Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. To register, visit www.leco.com/asms.
LECO instruments featured at booth #88 include the Pegasus® 4D GCxGC-MS, the Pegasus HT GC-TOFMS, and the Pegasus GC-HRT (High Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer).
Information will be available on new options and packages recently introduced to solve the most complex analytical challenges for food, metabolomics, petrochemical, and environmental applications.
ASMS attendees are also encouraged to visit the LECO hospitality suite, open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings in the Duluth ballroom at the Hilton Minneapolis.
In addition, LECO’s application experts will present on the latest advances in time-of-flight mass spectrometry throughout ASMS.
Understanding the Process of Cell DivisionNews
Using multiple techniques such as structural modelling, X-ray scattering, X-ray crystallography and electron microscopy, scientists have found that the Spc110 protein provides a greater function in mitosis originally believed. This information could help understand the process in human cells and the abnormalities that occur in cancer.READ MORE
Aquatic Habitats Threatened by Estrogens in Treated WastewaterNews
Estrogens in treated wastewater that find their way into temporary wetlands known as vernal pools persist for weeks or even months, according to researchers, who suggest that persistence may have implications for these critical aquatic habitats.READ MORE
