How does ICP-MS Improve Productivity and Profitability in the Environmental Laboratory?

Recent developments in ICP-MS have extended its applicability well beyond clean environmental sample types such as drinking water. More complex and variable sample types such as wastewater, soil and sediment digests and other environmental matrices with high levels of total solids are now routinely analyzed. This presentation will discuss hardware choices and optimization approaches that maintain high productivity and ensure quality data when analyzing difficult matrices.

Mixed-mode chromatography (MMC), which combines the properties of ion-exchange chromatography (IEC) and hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC), is increasingly used for the purification of various proteins, such as medicinal antibodies. Scientists from Mannheim University of Applied Sciences and Roche Pharmaceuticals’ Munich site developed equations to predict the elution of a bispecific antibody from an MMC column.

European scientists have used high-resolution mass spectrometry to screen for new psychoactive substances in wastewater during a city festival in Amsterdam, finding that traditional drugs are still dominant in the Dutch illicit drug scene.

For over 20 years, each issue of the Journal of Mass Spectrometry has contained a Special Feature article. These are highly regarded in the mass spectrometry community and extremely popular with researchers around the globe. These features are freely available to the entire mass spec community.

Selected key technologies of the analytical science industry are discussed by Steve Down with reference to burgeoning application areas and the scope for future improvements.

Ion source pressure plays a significant role in the process of ionization and the subsequent ion transmission inside a mass spectrometer. Pressurizing the ion source to a gas pressure greater than atmospheric pressure is a relatively new approach that aims to further improve the performance of atmospheric pressure ionization sources. A brief review on the development of super-atmospheric pressure ion sources, including high-pressure electrospray, field desorption and superheated ESI, and the strategies to...
