May 2021 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Luis Schachner’s mesmerizing MS-based artwork takes center stage in our May issue, with our cover feature exploring a selection of his portfolio and the inspiration behind each piece. Following this, our second feature delves into Perdita Barran’s work to bring MS testing for COVID-19 to the National Health Service in the UK - in just four months! Elsewhere, Phil Marriott talks about the decision to make GC×GC virtual for 2021, Kim Ekroos shares how HRIM-MS is transforming research into the lipidomics of neurodegenerative diseases, and we sit down with Timothy Garrett, Director of Experimental Pathology at the University of Florida, USA, to chat about his work with MALD MS and the impact of COVID-19 on analytical science.
