March 2020 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Our Special Series, “Advanced Clinical Analytics,” continues in March, as four leading experts discuss their work developing MS approaches to protect newborn babies, enhance cystic fibrosis diagnosis, and much more. We also journey to the Scottish Highlands to dig into the composition of peatland, discuss the characterization of so-called “forever chemicals” with Stefan van Leeuwen, and shine a light on diversity issues in STEM subjects. Plus, Agilent CEO Mike McMullen talks us through life as the leader of a tech titan, and The Spectroscopist Inside returns to put ICP-MS on a pedestal.
