Eliminating Matrix Effects: LC–MS Analysis of Biological Fluids
A single drop of blood represents a complex mixture of biological compounds including phospholipids, proteins, and salts. Frederic Lynen of Ghent University in Belgium discusses why LC–MS is the ideal analytical tool for the quantitative analysis of analytes in biological samples. Lynen also presents a new HILIC-based SPE approach to improve analyte recovery and sensitivity by removing phospholipids from samples.

Tips & Tricks GPC/SEC: How to Install GPC/SEC Columns
For proper column installation it is important to be familiar with column characteristics such as solvent compatibility, maximum flow rate, and maximum operating temperature. This article focuses on the considerations that should be made when installing a gel permeation/size exclusion chromatography (GPC/SEC) column.  More...
LiChrosolv® Solvents for Liquid Chromatography
With their low particle count, low acidity and alkalinity and low evaporation residue level, LiChrosolv® solvents are ideal for reproducible separations. Since separations are normally carried out under gradient conditions in analytical HPLC, we offer solvents in 'gradient grade' as well as ‘isocratic grade’. This enables you to minimize the gradient effect of the solvent involved – for example in enantiomeric separations on chiral phases. Learn more
