Mass spectrometry LC-MS
Lithium ion batteries power most of the electrical devices we rely on every day. As well as mobile phones, laptops and tablets, they are finding increasing use in vehicles, with electric cars not uncommon on our streets. This article is from a young scientist who has won help for her research through an instrument company’s support programme. You can find out more, read the article and even...
The study of metabolites in our sewage systems is not new, but there are particular difficulties with identifying the metabolites from new psychoactive substances, or “legal highs”. The authors describe a wide range of sample collection methodologies and their analysis with mass spectrometry.
The QTrap 6500+ LC-MS/MS system from Sciex has improved sensitivity and selectivity for small molecule quantitation.
Agilent also introduced updates to several software tools
ACD/Labs has launched MetaSense, an automated metabolite identification platform.
We are all probably aware of the detection of metabolites in wastewater to indicate the levels of illegal drug usage in a locality, but researchers at the University of Valencia have extended this to monitor alcohol consumption in near real time.
Dietary supplements may can contain a number of unexpected substances, including the active ingredient in Viagra, as detected by a LC-MS technique.
