A Lasting Legacy
Epigenetic changes can have a huge impact on our health – and can even be passed down through the generations. Can analytical science help improve our epigenetic fortunes?!
Just What the Doctor Ordered
Achieving equality could be the result of a revolution or – more likely – gradual evolution. But when it comes to boosting diversity, talking is not enough.
Remembering Lloyd Snyder
These recollections by four colleagues and friends paint a picture of Lloyd Snyder as a generous and gifted scientist – and a wonderful human being.

Application Notes
Using Isothermal Titration Calorimetry for Biophysical Characterization of Chromatin-Binding Proteins
Epigenetic regulation of genomic DNA for gene expression is important in cellular differentiation and the development of an organism.
Analyzing Particle Size of Calcium Carbonates using Laser Diffraction
Laser diffraction is a widely used technique for the analysis of calcium carbonated due to its wide dynamic range, flexible dispersion options, speed of measurement and reproducibility of results.
Simple and rapid detection of thermal degradation products of cooking oils
Food safety: This article of Shimadzu demonstrates that simple and rapid detection of degradation products induced by heating cooking oils can be performed simply and rapidly using the novel MALDI-8020 benchtop MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer.
Molar Mass Distribution of Phenol-Formaldehyde Resins (PFRs)
Phenol formaldehyde resins (PFRs) can withstand high temperatures, have poor electric conductivity and can be used as excellent electrical insulators. The molecular weight distributions of two PFRs were obtained with high resolution, in reduced analysis time and low solvent consumption, using an EcoSEC® GPC System and TSKgel® SuperH semi-micro columns.
Analysis of Lactose in ‘Lactose-free’ Labelled Products (Lactose Intolerance)
For the analysis of lactose in lactose-free labelled dairy products, sensitive analytical techniques are required to fulfil the new regulatory requirements of 10 mg per 100 g product. High Performance Anion Exchange Chromatography with Pulsed Amperometric Detection is the technique of choice to fulfil these requirements routinely.
The Do’s and Don’ts of Working with Purified Water
Water is probably the most commonly used reagent in every laboratory. From reagent and buffer preparation to sample and standards dilution, water is everywhere. The potential impact of water quality on experimental results cannot be overlooked. It is important to learn a few ‘Do’s and Don’ts’ when handling purified water.
GC-VUV—Solutions for Common GC Headaches
VUV spectroscopy has unique capabilities that address many of the challenges inherent to gas chromatography.  These capabilities are positively impacting R&D and production laboratories worldwide. Benefits of GC-VUV include: a universal detector, shorter GC run times, and accurate quantitative and qualitative analysis. Read more about GC-VUV in our eBook, The GC-VUV Toolkit.
