Scorpions could hold the secret to better cancer treatment, according to researchers from the Queensland Tropical Health Alliance (QTHA). The alliance recently acquired a $1.2 million nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer and facility to investigate the structure of promising molecules, some of which are found in scorpion venom.
The Waters Acquity QDa Detector brings high-quality, mass spectral data to chromatographic separations. The product is said to address the barriers of complexity, size and cost that have hindered the adoption of mass spectrometry for everyday use.
The MALDI-7090 is targeted for proteomics and tissue imaging. It combines Shimadzu's MALDI TOF-TOF mass spectrometry expertise with patented technology to provide high performance in the identification and structural characterisation of biomolecules.
With the extended mass range (EMR) option for the Thermo Scientific Exactive Plus LC-MS, proteomics scientists have a tool for challenging high-resolution accurate mass (HRAM) intact protein analysis such as investigating the structure, topology and architecture of targets.
The Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantiva triple-stage quadrupole LC-MS system is designed to transform quantitation experiments with high sensitivity, productivity, precision and usability.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is introducing the second generation of its benchtop hybrid HRAM instrument, the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive Plus LC-MS, to increase performance for applications such as bottom-up proteomics, lipidomics and high-confidence DMPK qual/quan screening studies.
The Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Fusion Tribrid LC-MS system enables users to quickly and positively identify large numbers of low-abundance proteins. Its architecture enables simultaneous precursor isolation, fragmentation and data acquisition in both the Orbitrap and linear ion trap mass analysers.
Shimadzu introduces the LCMS-8050 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. The device features high-sensitivity quantitation delivered at high speed, multicomponent analysis performed rapidly and simultaneous quantitative and qualitative analyses.
In the US, the Food and Drug Administration has allowed marketing of the bioMérieux VITEK mass spectrometer system for automated identification of bacteria and yeasts that are known to cause serious illness in humans.
Jasco has introduced the J-1000 Series Circular Dichroism (CD) Spectrometers, claimed to provide unparalleled optical performance and versatile flexibility. The series offers high sensitivity, with a wide spectral range from vacuum UV to NIR wavelengths (up to 1600 nm for J-1500).
Atomic clocks, medical diagnostics and astronomy all need tools for measuring different colours of light. These laser frequency combs are getting smaller and simpler to make. They are not quite DIY for the average home handyman but they are getting there.
Shimadzu has released three method packages for LC/MS/MS. Each includes optimised MRM transitions and collision energies for the compounds of interest, plus LC separation conditions with retention times, spectral libraries and report files.
The Waters Synapt G2-Si Mass Spectrometer integrates a third dimension of resolution and separation power into a suite of untargeted and targeted LC/MS/MS workflows.
Pesticides and their metabolites are of great concern to society as they are harmful to human health, pollute natural resources and disturb the equilibrium of the ecosystem. Consequently, stricter food safety regulations are being enforced around the world. Triple quadrupole LCMS systems can deliver high sensitivity and identification of the compounds of concern.
Eppendorf offers a full range of spectrophotometers: from the entry-level D30, specifically for DNA, RNA and protein quantitation, to the full-spectrum tuneable, kinetic and scanning systems - the Basic and Kinetic models.
