June 2018 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our June issue! In Upfront, we analyze manure, find out how a “coffee” filter could simplify cancer drug production and discover a sensor that could be a gamechanger in search and rescue. What’s on the wish lists of leading liquid chromatographers? Several experts dream big – and small – in their discussions about the future of the field. We also talk to Chris Harrison about his innovative teaching methods, and Sit Down With instrument innovator (and accidental scientist), Agilent’s Monika Dittmann.
