This webinar provides an introduction to SimGlycan software for high throughput glycan identification and quantitation. We show examples of the use of the software for LC-MS/MS workflows for 2-AB labelled glycans, processing data for quantitative workflows using the recently introduced Thermo Scientific™ Tandem Mass Tag™ Reagents. In an effort toward rapid profiling and identification of glycans, we have developed web based software modules to facilitate construction of custom databases.Read More
For years, traders have been passing off a lesser quality rice as the world's finest long-grained, aromatic rice, basmati, in key markets like the US, Canada and the EU. Increased concern regarding the authenticity of basmati rice throughout the world have lead to new developments in Food Authenticity Testing.Read More
Shimadzu’s UV-3600 and its successor UV-3600 Plus ultraviolet-visible near-infrared spectrophotometer systems are the world's first to be equipped with three detectors. By combining a photomultiplier tube for the ultraviolet-visible region and an InGaAs and cooled PbS detector for the near-infrared region, the instrument delivers greatly enhanced sensitivity throughout the entire range of wavelengths measured.Read More

While even the best analytical techniques cannot rectify problems generated by sloppy sample preparation, this less "sexy" step between the point at which analytes are transferred from the sample matrix to a form suitable for analysis is often overlooked. Read a free chapter from "Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry " here.
