Application Notes
GPC/SEC Analysis of Polymer Branching
In this application note, four PVC samples of known differences in glossiness were measured with both multi-detector GPC and rotational rheometry.
Malvern Panalytical and Waters collaborate to improve polymer characterization
In this application note, two low molecular weight polymers, a polystyrene and a polycaprolactone, were analyzed using the OMNISEC REVEAL and Waters ACQUITY APC in combination.
Advice on selecting sorbents for thermal desorption
This technical support note gives users of thermal desorption for GC–MS comprehensive advice on the best sorbents for packing TD sampling tubes, for pumped and passive monitoring of vapour-phase organics. Conditioning temperatures are also listed, and advice is provided on breakthrough volumes and storing packed tubes.
Analysis of hop aromas using dynamic headspace with TD–GC–TOF MS
A demonstration of the high performance of a dynamic headspace sampler with TD–GC–TOF MS analysis for investigating the complex aroma profiles from hops. The use of Tandem Ionisation provides enhanced confidence in the identification of terpenoids, while the comparison of hop varieties is simplified by real-time data-processing software.
Detection of residual pesticides on fruits and vegetables using Portability™ miniature mass spectrometer
Featuring light weight and compact size, BaySpec’s novel mass analyzers based on linear ion trap technology are the most sensitive portable devices available on the market with parts-per-trillion detection sensitivity. Learn how you can bring the lab to the sample with portable analytical tools from this Application Note.
How to Ensure Analytical Accuracy and Reliability with an Inert Flow Path
An inert sample pathway is critical for accurately quantifying low levels of active sample that are common in today’s analytical applications. Regulations and smaller sample sizes have placed utmost importance on getting accurate results quickly without instrument downtime. Read this application note to learn how inert coatings improve analytical performance.
Performance of Low Retention GripTips from Integra
It has been demonstrated on several occasions: best results are obtained by following the recommended pipetting techniques and working with an optimized pipetting system in which tips and pipettes have been designed to perfectly fit together. This Application Guide illustrates the advantages of using Low Retention GripTips when pipetting low surface tension liquids.
Product Profiles
Effortless performance
Shimadzu has introduced the new LCMS-9030 quadrupole time-of-flight liquid chromatograph mass spectrometer. The LCMS-9030 is a research grade mass spectrometer designed to deliver high-resolution, accurate-mass detection with incredibly fast data acquisition rates, allowing scientists to identify and quantify more compounds with greater confidence.
DECADE™ Elite - Electrochemical Detector for any (U)HPLC System
The Decade Elite is designed as an easy-to-use detector that can integrate with any LC system on the market. It can handle fast eluting peaks in (U)HPLC and deliver fast stabilization from dedicated flow cells. When used with the SenCell™, it becomes the most sensitive electrochemical detector by today’s standard.
