Lipidomics and metabolomics: Simultaneous analysis

Date: Jan 21, 2019

Author: Steve Down

A new workflow comprising parallel HILIC and RPLC separations permits simultaneous lipidomics and metabolomics analyses in one LC/MS run without affecting the throughput, providing both compound identification and quantification.

Journal Highlight: Newborn screening for 3‐hydroxy‐3‐methylglutaric aciduria using direct analysis in real‐time mass spectrometry

Date: Jan 16, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A novel method utilizing ambient thermal desorption ionization with a direct analysis in real‐time source integrated with mass spectrometry (DART-MS) has been established and applied to the rapid analysis of 3‐hydroxy‐3‐methylglutaric acid in neonatal urine.

Sugars from space: Meteorite sources supported

Date: Jan 1, 2019

Author: Steve Down

Deoxysugars, which are building blocks of life, have been formed in the lab under conditions that simulate the astrophysical environment of ices, supporting their formation in space, say NASA researchers, who also found deoxysugar derivatives in meteorites to reinforce the connection.

Ginseng farming methods: Organic acid indicators

Date: Dec 18, 2018

Author: Steve Down

Organic acid profiling by GC/MS can distinguish conventionally farmed ginseng from that farmed in a pesticide-free environment, say South Korean researchers, who used star pattern recognition for data evaluation.

Journal Highlight: Volatile compounds profiling by using proton transfer reaction–time of flight–mass spectrometry (PTR‐ToF‐MS). The case study of dark chocolates organoleptic differences

Date: Dec 13, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Various direct injection mass spectrometry methods used for the analysis of foodstuffs have been briefly reviewed, emphasising proton transfer reaction mass spectrometry (PTR‐MS), and a case study for classifying dark chocolates by PTR-ToFMS has been presented.

Aquatic pharmaceutical pollution: Food web accumulation

Date: Dec 1, 2018

Author: Steve Down

The levels of 98 common pharmaceuticals have been measured in spiders and invertebrates living along the edges of six streams in Melbourne, Australia, suggesting that creatures at the top of the food web, like platypus and brown trout, could be exposed to high doses in their diets.
