Straight to the Core
Honing in on the topics at the core of The Analytical scientist – and revealing some exciting plans ahead…

The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed a slight change to the format of our last issue. Missed it? Well, take a look at the previous digital issue online. That’s right – it’s my pleasure to retrospectively introduce “Core Topics.” From Q&As with key names in the field to practical tips and tricks, each new section – whether mass spec, chromatography, spectroscopy, or (bio)pharma – acts as a hub for content developed for that specific area of analytical science. Moreover, the Core Topics in print reflect a greater emphasis on those areas in the digital sphere…
And that leads me directly to another exciting launch: the Mass Spec newsletter. We all know MS is constantly hitting new strides and the research occurring in this space is frankly exhilarating. Just take a look at our cover feature on sports doping from Douwe de Boer – it’s clear that MS will play a commanding role in the “war to close Pandora’s Box.”
With more happening in the space than ever before, we decided it was high time to launch a dedicated newsletter to help better serve the community – a space for #TeamMassSpec to flourish! Mass Spec from The Analytical Scientist will not only keep you up-to-date with the latest advancements in technology and the most exciting research and applications, but also bring together (and amplify) all the different voices in the field.
Since I joined The Analytical Scientist team, mass spec has consistently captured my attention. Was it the many exciting applications passing by my window into the field? Was it the indecipherable new acronyms or the increasingly long chains of advanced technologies? Maybe it was the addictive enthusiasm I’ve encountered when speaking to some of you. It’s likely all of those things. But what I know for sure is that I’m thrilled to have the chance to create and grow a special place for a clearly passionate community.
