September 2017 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our September issue! In Upfront, we cover ancient cats, bomb-sniffing dogs, cancer-detecting pens, and the current Netherlands egg crisis. In Features, we ask if analytical scientists can inject some objectivity into the fracking debate, and if handheld devices are the future of food analysis. We also cover mentorship and Lord of the Rings in our In My Views, Sit Down With separation specialist, Attila Felinger – and introduce our new mini mag, The Spectroscopist!
