Drugs containing gold have been used for centuries to treat conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, they can be effective against cancer and HIV. One mechanism by which they work could occur because gold ions force the zinc ions out of zinc fingers—looped, nucleic acid binding protein domains. American researchers have characterised such “gold fingers” using ion mobility mass...
Waters has introduced a metabolic profiling reference library.
Morpho Detection has won a contract with UK Airport Operator Manchester Airports Group Plc (MAG) for 44 Itemiser 4DX explosives trace detectors (ETD). The Itemiser 4DX is based on ion mobility spectrometry and quickly detects and identifies trace amounts of explosives on skin, clothing, carried items, bags, vehicles and other surfaces.
Since ion mobility spectrometry does not require a...
