New Wave

Progress in LC over the years has been steady, but much slower than advances seen in techniques like GC. The lag can be attributed to the fact that LC is the core analytical technique of the pharmaceutical industry, in which regulation and validation – rather than development – were the keywords until the end of the 20th century. However, the past decade has seen great advances, thanks to the creativity of scientists from both the academic and industrial world. Today, with LC-MS/MS, we can monitor more than 300 pesticides in our food in less than 20 minutes, and quickly determine the critical quality attributes of large biopharmaceuticals. Developments in LC and MS have led to an increased understanding of the human body in health and disease, which could ultimately improve and extend our lives.
