European Proteomics Infrastructure Consortium – Providing Access
The European Proteomics Infrastructure Consortium providing Access, or EPIC-XS, started in January 2019. It brings together a consortium of world-leading, highly innovative European proteomics facilities with the shared goal of supporting excellent life sciences research in Europe. In this article, Martina O'Flaherty provides an overview of some of the successes of the consortium so far.
Teach Me in 10 Hub Page
At Technology Networks we understand the importance of time. That's why we've launched Teach Me in 10 a video series that challenges scientists to present and summarize their research area, a scientific concept, or technology in ten minutes or less.
Why mRNA Vaccines Could Be a Game Changer
In this article, Amber Schmidtke explores why mRNA vaccines might chart our path to a safer, healthier future.
Revolutionizing Metabolomics Practices With Machine Learning
This article discusses the opportunity to use recent advancements in AI and machine learning for natural product drug discovery.
LC-MS – What Is LC-MS, LC-MS Analysis and LC-MS/MS
Coupling liquid chromatography (LC) with mass spectrometry (MS) has provided scientists with a powerful tool to meet stringent analytical demands and their versatility and efficiency means LC-MS instruments have become desirable in many laboratories. In this article, we consider how LC-MS works, what it tells us and highlight some of the technique's strengths and weaknesses.
Exploring Mental Health in Academia
In this article, we explore why academia and research can be hard on an individual's mental health, speaking directly with the individuals and organizations that are championing mental health discussions in this space, and highlight areas where we're perhaps falling short and could improve.
What the COVID-19 Pandemic Taught Us About Flexibility in Vaccine Manufacturing
In this article, we will explore the manufacturing strategies and tools that the biopharmaceutical industry adopted to make such efficient COVID-19 vaccine production possible.
Mass Spectrometry Ionization
Mass spectrometry (MS) plays a vital role in many aspects of our lives, from diagnosing illness and detecting food contaminants to fighting fraud. In order for a sample to be analyzed by MS, it must however, first be ionized. There are a number of ways of achieving sample ionization depending on the sample type, target analyte and desired workflow. In this article, we consider some common ionization techniques and sample types for which they are best suited.
Types of Ion Detector for Mass Spectrometry
A key element to all mass spectrometry (MS) systems is the type of detector used to convert a current of mass separated ions into measurable signal. Different types of detectors are used depending upon factors including dynamic range, spatial information retention, noise and suitability to the mass analyzer. In this article, we consider some of the commonly used detectors.
