If you're a criminal with a propensity towards guns, now might be the time to go straight, as forensic scientists have reported matching gunshot residue with specific brands of ammunition for the first time.
The 6500+ Series LC-MS/MS systems, from SCIEX, feature IonDrive technology with an enhanced high energy detector and SelexION+ technology.
The SCIEX QTRAP 6500+ LC-MS/MS System achieves improved sensitivity and selectivity over previous-generation systems for small molecule quantitation. It integrates with the BioBA Solution for large molecule quantitation, creating a powerful workflow system for biologics bioanalysis.
The Model 20-22 is an isotope ratio mass spectrometer from Sercon. The product is available in both continuous-flow 20-22 and dual-inlet GEO 20-22 forms to be interfaced with a range of automated preparation units and peripherals.
By examining lead isotopes taken from the harbour at Naples, a multidisciplinary team of geoarchaeologists, archaeologists and geochemists has revealed the hidden history of an ancient Roman water distribution system.
AXT has installed a Rigaku Simultix 14 high-speed wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer at BHP Billiton's nickel operation. The system is now up and running 24/7, characterising ore samples to support the mining company's operations.
The Thermo Scientific Delta Ray Isotope Ratio Infrared Spectrometer (IRIS) with URI Connect extends the continuous measurement of isotope ratios and concentrations of CO2 in air to discrete samples, such as headspace analysis or direct injection of small amounts of CO2.
The Shimadzu ICPMS-2030 Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer is designed to respond to the ICH Q3D guidelines for elemental impurities in pharmaceutical products.
The i-Raman portable Raman spectrometer is a high-resolution, TE-cooled, fibre-optic Raman system. Combining high resolution with field portability, the product's performance is comparable to large benchtop Raman systems. It weighs less than 3.2 kg.
The qCD (quantitative CD) spectrometer from Applied Photophysics is said to extend the capabilities of CD spectrometry. The product reflects a number of novel capabilities that improve performance and enable absolute CD measurement.
The X500R QTOF from SCIEX is a high-resolution mass spectrometry system designed exclusively for routine testing labs tasked with detection of low levels of compounds in complex samples or required to profile the composition of samples full of unknowns.
XRF has been used to map industrial contamination in vegetable gardens across cities and towns.
Endocrine disrupting compounds can now be directly assayed in drinking water without using a solid-phase extraction concentration step.
Scientists engaged in climate research, biochemistry, forensics and oil/gas exploration can now analyse the isotopic anatomy of volatile molecules using the Thermo Scientific 253 Ultra High Resolution Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (HR-IRMS).
An ANSTO scientist has been involved in an experiment said to be the first of its kind — carbon dating a kidney stone.
