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.

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.
