A group of scientists from EAWAG, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, have developed a portable mass spectrometer allowing on-site measurements, and a spin-off has been created to commercialise the new system.
A version of the Metlin MS/MS library for Progenesis QI software for use with Waters’ high-resolution mass spectrometry systems. The Metlin library is one of the largest collections of reference metabolite data commonly used to confirm components in metabolomics experiments.
New module developed for the AccuTOF-DART mass spectrometer enables a sample to be spotted onto a disposable paper triangle for ambient ionisation. This means that samples can be analysed without the risk of cross-contamination and sample carryover. The FilterSpray module is mounted onto the linear rail of the AccuTOF-DART, allowing use without removing the DART ion source.
Mass-spectrometry-based gas analyser capable of fully automated sampling of up to 16 gas channels. It can track concentrations changes from ppb levels to 100% and provide continuous data updates in seconds. Questor5 control software can instantly calculate derived values from acquired data and has a wide range of communication protocols.
Software for biopharma R&D and QC, that includes wizard-driven workflows for monoclonal antibody and antibody–drug conjugates characterisation, intact mass analysis, sequence errors, truncations, substitutions and post-translational modifications such as glycosylation. Data can be combined from MALDI-TOF/TOF and ESI-UHR-QTOF instruments. There is a new 3D feature finder, as well as 21CFR...
This is a system for pharmaceutical label-free ultra-high-throughput screening (UHTS) for primary screens of millions of compounds. It can measure up to 10 different samples per second and integrates with third-party UHTS robotics for automated handling of up to 6144-well sample plates. It is based on Bruker’s rapiflex MALDI time-of-flight mass spectrometer.
Robotic system to pick bacterial colonies and deposit them on MALDI target plates. Selection of colonies can be manual or automatic, and colonies can be preselected based on size and colour discrimination. A patented liquid deposition method enables a significant increase of MALDI-TOF microbial identification scores. The preparation process is documented with photos at all key stages to...
Becton, Dickinson and Company has announced the global distribution of a complete portfolio of products for mass spectrometry that provides high-speed and high-confidence identification of pathogens in clinical laboratories.
Ionicon Analytik have introduced the next generation of their high-end proton transfer reaction-mass spectrometry (PTR-MS) instruments for real-time VOC monitoring.
Pfeiffer Vacuum DuoLine two-stage high-performance rotary vane pumps cover low and medium vacuum applications.
MetID typically requires analysis of mass spectrometry (MS) data to identify metabolic “hot spots” and elucidate biotransformation pathways. This remains the primary challenge despite significant instrumental and software advances. MetaSense™ overcomes these challenges and allows users to save time and improve collaborations.
Quantum mechanics dictates how particles and forces interact, and thus how atoms and molecules work, for example, what happens when a molecule goes from a higher-energy state to a lower-energy one. But beyond the simplest molecules, the details become very complex. Now, a Pixel-Imaging Mass Spectrometry camera and a femtosecond vacuum ultraviolet light source are showing how does quantum...
Salmon is one of the most popular edible fish of all. Shops sell fish caught in the wild, but their main produce is salmon from breeding farms, the effluent from which can pollute rivers, lakes and oceans. German and Chilean scientists have used fluorescence measurements, high-resolution mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to answer this question.
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...
Bal Seal Engineering designs and manufactures the Bal Spring® canted coil spring, which enables designers to achieve constant ion alignment, zero contamination, and minimal downtime. These springs help advance technology in Quadrupole LC/MS, TOF LC/MS, MALDI-TOF MS, ICP-MS, and atomic spectroscopy.
Analytik Jena and Bruker Daltonics develop a new ultra-high throughput screening product for biopharmaceutical labs.
Sciex has announced the latest introduction to its X-Series quadrupole time-of-flight platform
Ionicon Analytik introduces its new compact, high-resolution VOC analyser, the PTR-TOF 4000
Shimadzu has released its new LCMS-8045 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer
By measuring the height profile of the sample prior to analysis, mass spectrometry imaging can now visualise the distribution of chemical substances on samples with non-flat surfaces.
SIFT-MS has shown promising results for the detection of cancers of the oesophagus and stomach in a large patient trial presented at the European Cancer Congress 2017.
Shimadzu have introduced the GCMS-TQ8050 triple quadrupole GC-MS, the latest in the series dating back to the GCMS-TQ8030 in 2012.
