Automating mass spectrometry based glycan identification and quantitation using SimGlycan software

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.

Discovery OMICS and Progenesis QI for Food Authenticity Testing

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.

Shimadzu Europa
UV-3600 Plus & ISR-1503
New solutions for UV-VIS-NIR Measurements

thumbnail image: <font size=3>Shimadzu Europa</font><br />UV-3600 Plus & ISR-1503<br/>New solutions for UV-VIS-NIR Measurements

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.

Graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrophotometry (FAAS) reveals that toxic metals from cigarette butts could be an important source of pollution thanks to the millions that are discarded by smokers and end up on shorelines and in the oceans.

International scientists have turned to cryo-electron microscopy rather than X-ray crystallography or nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to help them unravel the structure of a deadly bacterial toxin that rips holes in body cells.

Scientists in China have identified proteins in pregnant women who have gestational diabetes, a temporary intolerance to glucose, which might act as biomarkers for childhood obesity.

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.
