Automated Sample Preparation Workflows for Quantitative Proteomics Applications

Mass spectrometry based proteomics requires large scale identification of peptides, and depends upon efficient sample preparation. Recently, we presented two automated protein-digestion setups, in-solution and in-gel digestion. We extended these techniques by implementing dimethyl labelling (DML). Furthermore, we established an automated phospho-peptide (PP) enrichment procedure in a 96-well formate, generating phospho-proteomic data in very short time.

Performance Characteristics of a Comprehensive GCxGC-High Resolution TOFMS System Utilizing Chemical Ionization

Combining comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC×GC) with a High Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer and Chemical Ionization is a powerful tool for compound identification. Performance of the LECO Pegasus GC-HRT 4D using Chemical Ionization (CI) was demonstrated using Benzophenone and Diesel. GC×GC separation results in narrow peaks, therefore, a high speed detection system is necessary.

A Microfluidic Device for Detection of Water Contamination from Hydraulic Fracturing

A paper-based microfluidic device was designed and optimized for the colorimetric detection of bromide in water. This work was developed in response to the waste management challenges and pollution risks of hydraulic fracturing wastewater. This device is suitable for distribution as a field test as it is portable, easy to use, inexpensive and can be packaged to extend shelf life.

Flash Pyrolysis Coupled to GCxGC-TOFMS and GC-High Resolution TOFMS for Characterization of Crude Oil and Petroleum Fractions

The pyrolysis of asphaltenes from discrete crude oil samples shows distinct composition in terms of light and heavy aromatic hydrocarbons and alkyldibenzo-thiophenes. The use of Py–GC×GC–TOFMS is crucial for the determination of isomeric composition, and Py–GC–HRTOFMS with high resolution and high mass accuracy complements the identification by unequivocal chemical formula assignments. The study of the relationships of the crude oil and asphaltene composition are in progress.

High Performance Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry for Comprehensive Petroleum Analysis

High Resolution GC-TOFMS and GC×GC-TOFMS are useful for a non-target comprehensive characterization of petroleum through a petroleomic approach, and can also provide targeted analysis of chemical markers.

High Resolution GC-TOFMS analysis with high resolution and high mass accuracy is crucial for identification of crude oil and asphaltene pyrolysis products by unequivocal chemical formula assignment, with enhancement of sensitivity and selectivity.
