Business in Brief

  • Thermo Fisher Scientific recently validated a new disinfection by-products application workflow, which uses IC-MS/MS to analyze nine haloacetic acids in drinking water samples in just 35 minutes. Not only is it faster than the previous US EPA Method 557 workflow, it is also simpler to use and eliminates sample preparation steps (1). 
  • At the recent Experimental Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Conference, Bruker announced the launch of a number of new systems to increase the accessibility of chemical analysis via magnetic resonance spectroscopy. In particular, this included the Fourier™ 80 FT-NMR benchtop spectrometer for multinuclear gradient spectroscopy (2). 
  • Waters and Genovis have teamed up to co-develop efficient workflows for the characterization of critical quality attributes in biotherapeutics, such as antibodies and other protein-based drugs. The workflows will be based on the Waters BioAccord LC-MS system, Andrew+ pipetting robot and Genovis SmartEnzymes (3). 
  • Agilent’s InfinityLab LC/MSD iQ and Ultivo Triple Quadrupole LC/MS systems have recently received the ACT seal of approval from My Green Lab – a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the sustainability of scientific research – demonstrating their reduced environmental impact (4). 
  • SCIEX has announced that Joe Fox, who joined the company in 2011, will take over from Inese Lowenstein as President. Fox will focus on continuing SCIEX’ legacy in quantitative LC-MS, and will also oversee the launch of new technologies later in the year (5).

About the Author

Lauren Robertson

By the time I finished my degree in Microbiology I had come to one conclusion – I did not want to work in a lab. Instead, I decided to move to the south of Spain to teach English. After two brilliant years, I realized that I missed science, and what I really enjoyed was communicating scientific ideas – whether that be to four-year-olds or mature professionals. On returning to England I landed a role in science writing and found it combined my passions perfectly. Now at Texere, I get to hone these skills every day by writing about the latest research in an exciting, creative way.
