High-coverage high-throughput characterization of breast cancer cell line proteomes using 10-plexed TMT on an Orbitrap Fusion

This webinar will show how TMT-10 reagents and the Orbitrap Fusion enable the quantification of nearly 8,000 proteins in only 4.5 hours per cell line. This technology positions proteomics to be used in conjunction with genomics tools in studying complex diseases which demand the analysis of a large number of samples.

Shimadzu Europa:
Unique LC/MS/MS Method Package for Lipid Mediators

thumbnail image: <font size=3>Shimadzu Europa</font>:<br />Unique LC/MS/MS Method Package for Lipid Mediators

In the last decade, comprehensive monitoring of lipid mediators using LC/MS has been developed as key technology for disease studies or biomarker exploring. Designed especially for lipid mediator profiling analysis in various biological samples, Shimadzu’s LC/MS/MS method package provides a valuable tool for establishing this type of analysis. The method package offers a complete solution, from sample pretreatment to data acquisition including separation conditions, MRM optimization, MS parameter settings...

The ability of the complementary techniques of GC/MS and LC/MS to compare the metabolomes of rat plasma and serum has been investigated by Chinese scientists, who found that GC/MS has better reproducibility.

A quantitative analysis of eight polyamines in lung cancer patient fingernails for diagnosis and to assess the depth of the disease was conducted by LC/MS/MS following reaction with 4-(N,N-dimethylaminosulfonyl)-7-fluoro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole.

A new way to identify cancers from the low-molecular-mass metabolites that show up in the mass spectra of serum has been devised by Korean scientists, who used it to distinguish colorectal cancer from gastric and breast cancer.
