February 2018 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our February issue! In Upfront we look at ingestible sensors, mirror molecules, glucose-measuring contact lenses – and preview this year’s Pittcon lineup. In this month’s features, we get ready for liftoff to Mars, plus discuss the birth of MS/MS screening and the rising profile of metabolomics. Proteomics pioneer, John Yates III, tells us why mass spec is so compelling in our Sitting Down With, and make sure you cast your eye over Issue 4 of The Cannabis Scientist, for updates on pesticide analysis, mobile cannabis labs and our research round-up.
