Trends in LC-MS: High Resolution and Alternative Ionization Techniques
More and more analysts are moving away from low-resolution mass spectrometry to high-resolution mass spectrometry, but what are the requirements for making such a change? Michal Holčapek, professor of analytical chemistry at the University of Pardubice, Czech Republic, discusses  what you need to consider when switching to a high resolution system. Holčapek also offers advice on  how to choose the most effective ionization technique for your analysis. 
Helium is a Non-Renewable Resource. Conserve it.
There is a global helium shortage that has caused prices to soar. Many GC users are switching to hydrogen as a carrier gas. Hydrogen provides many advantages over helium including, higher resolution, shorter run times, longer column life, and cost savings. A hydrogen generator is a safe, convenient solution. Download this step by step guide on switching to hydrogen as a carrier gas. Learn more
