Techniques & Tools Gas Chromatography

The Power of Passionate Debate

| Rich Whitworth

Peer reviews, Power Lists and the effects of heat (in GC and discussions).

Techniques & Tools Data Analysis

LC-MS Versus GC-MS

| Rich Whitworth

Is the heat applied in gas chromatography-mass spectrometry really responsible for false results? And, if so, how often?

Techniques & Tools Spectroscopy

TXRF Goes Nuclear

Using total reflection X-ray fluorescence for the non-destructive analysis of nuclear fuel oxides

Techniques & Tools Food, Beverage & Agriculture

Hot (Dog) or Hype?

| Rich Whitworth

Kickstarter technology is nothing new – but Clear Labs is making in-roads into something less common: kickstarter analytical science

Fields & Applications Genomics & DNA Analysis

Gold Rush

| Rich Whitworth

Nanoporous gold helps ‘sieve out’ biological debris for fuss-free nucleic acid detection

Fields & Applications Genomics & DNA Analysis

Name Your Poison

| Roisin McGuigan

A new DNA-based sensor shows promise for indirect detection of thallium

Techniques & Tools Capillary Electrophoresis

Is CE-MS in Your Toolbox?

| Rob Haselberg

Online hyphenation of capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry is nearly 30 years old, but has been ignored in certain camps. It’s time to give CE-MS a chance.

Techniques & Tools Mass Spectrometry

The Six Dimensions of GC

| Nicholas Snow

The juxtaposition of simplicity through new technology with complexity in the chemistry keeps gas chromatographic method development exciting – despite GC being described by many as a “mature” technique. But are we still using packed-column thinking?

Techniques & Tools Data Analysis

Data: Wanted Dead or Alive

| Ryan Sasaki

Can R&D organizations really afford to kill off analytical data that could be used for future decision-making? Perhaps it’s time to breathe life back into analytical data environments.

Techniques & Tools Data Analysis

The Drug Concentration Conundrum

| Marcel Florin Musteata

When it comes to measuring drugs in biological samples, what is needed, what is quantifiable – and what role should analytical scientists really be playing?

Techniques & Tools Gas Chromatography

Landmark Literature: 2015 (part1)

| Davy Guillarme, Hans-Gerd Janssen

We ask an impossible question as 2015 comes to a close: which piece of literature stood out from the crowd

Techniques & Tools Spectroscopy

Landmark Literature: 2015 (part2)

| Martin Gilar , Peter Griffiths

Just imagine how many analytical problems would be solved if we could increase the resolution of liquid chromatography (LC) from hundreds to thousands or perhaps a hundred thousand compounds?

Techniques & Tools Liquid Chromatography

Landmark Literature: 2015 (part3)

| Pat Sandra, Peter Schoenmakers

Selecting “the paper of the year” is by definition subjective and very personal.

Techniques & Tools Mass Spectrometry

Gurus of CE-MS

| Michael Knierman, Norman (Norm) Dovichi, Rob Haselberg, Tomoyoshi Soga, Christian Wenz

Capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry (CE-MS) appears to be caught in a dichotomy – proven success in some fields, skepticism in others.

Techniques & Tools Mass Spectrometry

Finding a Piece of the Protein Characterization Puzzle

| Tiemin Huang

Coupling whole column imaging detection to a mass spectrometer for protein structure characterization is fundamentally challenging. Could a relatively simple capillary cartridge system unlock the potential?

Fields & Applications Mass Spectrometry

Swiss Precision Research

| Rich Whitworth

Sitting Down With… Detlef Günther, VP Research and Corporate Relations, and Professor for Trace Element and Micro Analysis, ETH Zürich, Switzerland.

Techniques & Tools Mass Spectrometry

The Simple Beauty of TLC-MALDI-MS

| Rich Whitworth

Thin-layer chromatography’s ability to simply and inexpensively provide high-quality separations in parallel makes it the perfect partner for MALDI mass spectrometry

Fields & Applications Mass Spectrometry

The Never-Ending Challenge of Pesticide Analysis

| Rich Whitworth

A growing target list, increasingly complex matrices, and the need for low limits of detection can make our field seem like an uphill treadmill.

Fields & Applications Spectroscopy

Bringing New Life to Old Arteries with Oxygen

| Cicely Rathmell

Optimizing oxygen delivery improves stem cell treatment of peripheral artery disease.
