Using Multiple Analytical Techniques in Non-Targeted Analysis of Food Products
Traditional approaches for measuring food components are based on a ‘target list’ approach, whereby specific methodologies are developed for individual or related compounds. Such methods are well suited for routine monitoring but can fail to detect emerging contamination events or to identify new prospects for product development.
New Beginner's Guide to SPE (Solid-Phase Extraction)
Through diagrams and straightforward text, readers will understand the power and usefulness of solid-phase extraction, how it helps solve sample preparation challenges. The book covers many topics including SPE device formats, sorbent considerations, mobile phase selection, and troubleshooting. A must read for anyone starting out in analytical chromatography as well as seasoned chemists looking to add solid-phase extraction to their skills set. The book will be available in June. The first 50 requests will get a complimentary copy, register now.

Schug to Lead New Shimadzu Center at UT Arlington
Kevin Schug, an associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry at The University of Texas (UT) at Arlington, has been named the university's new Shimadzu Distinguished Professor of Analytical Chemistry.
Extend your insight with HDR
The new Agilent 1200 Infinity Series High Dynamic Range (HDR) DAD Solution is ideal for analyzing mixtures with widely different concentrations of main components in a single run. By computing the signals of two diode array detectors (DAD) with Max-Light flow cells of different path lengths, you can achieve a 30x wider linear UV range and up to 30x higher sensitivity.
Thermo Fisher Launches European Seminar Series
Thermo Fisher (Waltham, Massachusetts) has launched a seminar series, "New Frontiers in Water Analysis," which is scheduled for major European cities now through December 2012.
ROXY EC in Protein Chemistry
Antec's ROXY EC is increasingly used in protein chemistry and proteomics applications. Simply by using an electrochemical reactor cell the introduced proteins/peptides undergo specific reactions such as: reduction of disulfide bonds in seconds, resulting in superior assessment of S-S bonds in biopharmaceuticals. Fast on-line de-clustering (salt removal) of proteins/peptides or drug-protein binding studies are other examples illustrating the power of electrochemistry up-front MS. Read more
