The following free breakfast seminars will be offered in room 200A in the Convention Center:
• 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.
Algae Could Feed and Fuel Planet with Aid of New High-Tech ToolNews
Vast quantities of medicines and renewable fuels could be produced by algae using a gene-editing technique, a study suggests. The technique uses molecules that act like scissors to cut DNA - called CRISPR molecules - which allow researchers to add new genes or modify existing ones. Until now, scientists have struggled to develop a technique that works efficiently in algae.READ MORE
Physiochemical 'Fingerprint' of Parasitic 'American Murderer' UncoveredNews
With the help of using Atomic Force Microscopy and Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry, the physical and chemical ‘fingerprint’ profile of a parasitic worm, dubbed the ‘American murderer,’ has been uncovered for the first time by researchers - a discovery that could allow for more effective and earlier treatment.READ MORE
