Within the manufacturing process of bio-therapeutics, quality control (QC) plays a fundamental role in guaranteeing the supply of a high quality product. Any changes in the product formulation or degradation can affect the therapeutic role, leading to a potential loss of activity or development of toxicity. Amongst the several analytical techniques that can be used to determine the quality of a synthetic bio-product, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry is widely employed due to its rapid and simple operation, low...

A novel and rapid method for identifying the type of human body fluid in forensic investigations relies on the MALDI mass spectrometric detection of characteristic metabolites with minimal sample pretreatment, far quicker than proposed LC/MS methods based on proteins.

A fast and simple urinary GC/MS assay for three nucleosides associated with breast cancer has been developed by scientists in Egypt, who suggest that they might form the basis of a diagnostic test in the future.

A novel multiplexed system based on inductive nanoelectrospray mass spectrometry and field amplification micro‐electrophoresis has been developed using "dip‐and‐go"” sample loading and purification.

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...
