How Native MS and Charge Algorithms Can Improve Protein Analysis
Blog

Native Mass Spectrometry (MS) can be used to examine proteins in their natural, folded forms. In this blog, Marshall Bern, Ph.D., the Vice President of Research and Co-Founder of Protein Metrics, discusses how advances in this technique are being paired with cutting-edge charge deconvolution algorithms to improve analysis of antibodies and plasma glycoproteins.

Cinderella and Mass Spectrometry: Insightful Multi-Dimensional Data Analysis
Blog

Proteomics is a powerful technology for analyzing low-abundance proteins for disease research. But it’s stalled by imprecise and often irreproducible data analysis. Here, David Chiang, Founder of Sage-N Research, explains how his company uses multidimensional separation to improve peptide identification in MS/MS.

Data-Independent Acquisition: A Superior Technique in Mass Spectrometry?
Blog

Whilst Mass Spectrometry is undoubted in its status as a central part of the proteomics toolkit, there is still debate about the way that MS data should be acquired and analyzed. Here, we talk to Florian Marty, Director Global Product Support at Biognosys AG, about why he believes that data-independent acquisition is a superior acquisition technique.

Advances in Analytical Technology: Deciphering Complex Matrices
Blog

With justice and health in the balance, modern forensic toxicology drug testing labs are expected to detect and quantify a wide range of drugs and metabolites, from Fentanyl to novel psychoactive substances (NPS), at very low levels in biological matrices. The drug concentrations also need to be correlated with the impairment of the individual with absolute certainty, but labs face increasing pressures due to growing caseloads, sample backlogs, and budget restrictions.

Building in Purity
Blog

Laboratories rely on the constant provision of high quality water for a variety of purposes, from glass washing to reagent preparation and instrumental analysis. It is all too easy to take this valuable commodity for granted yet, behind the scenes, a great deal of thought goes into designing a facility that reliably and cost-effectively provides water of the required quality on a round the clock basis.
