Beyond Basic DIA - New Workflows using Orbitrap Mass Spectrometry for Large Scale Quantitation

In this webinar, we will cover building high performance methods, generating a high quality spectral library and using it to reveal important expression changes in your pathway of interest, and even how to go back in time and use a DIA file’s record observable proteome to retrospectively interrogate data for new target peptides and proteins.

Quality in the Laboratory

Quality is of extreme importance for labs. However, it is often seen as the responsibility of the quality manager and its importance and impact on your own work is not always well understood. In this webinar, Peter Kootstra will reinforce how quality can improve your performance and your work satisfaction.

Advertorial Feature



FAAS (flame atomic absorption spectroscopy)  has been used to determine the concentration of essential trace metals, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc, in breast milk. The results  suggest that normal dietary intake do not affect levels available to breastfeeding infant and so mothers should be encouraged to take a supplement when they are deficient.

"Red lead" is familiar as a component of the orange-red rustproof paint used on boats and other areas exposed to the sea and the weather. It has also been used by countless artists through the centuries. Unfortunately, the pigment undergoes discoloration over time. Now, researchers at DESY have used X-ray diffraction mapping and tomography experiments to help them explain the process.

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.

In this tutorial Dr Gary M Hieftje from Indiana University takes us right back to the grass roots of atomic spectroscopy making it ideal reading for either the graduate or anyone wishing learn more about this important branch of analytical chemistry.

The infrared spectrum is rich in information, and this article by John Coates, taken from the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia of Analytical Chemistry is intended to help the reader to extract the maximum information.
