Is Two-Dimensional LC Worth the Effort?
Two-dimensional liquid chromatography (2D LC) is a powerful technique, but method development is more involved and time-consuming. So for what types of analyses does it make sense to invest the extra effort to develop a 2D LC method instead of a 1D method? Dwight Stoll explains.  More...

Editors’ Series: Investigating the Potential Impact of Hydraulic Fracturing on Private Well Water Quality
Thursday, May 8, 2014, 8:00 AM PDT/ 10:00 AM CDT/ 11:00 AM EDT
Until now, limited studies have been performed regarding the environmental impact of hydraulic fracturing for harvesting natural gas. In this seminar, Kevin Schug discusses the suite of analytical methods (including headspace-GC, GC-MS, ICP-OES, ICP-MS, total organic carbon, and ion chromatography methods) his team developed to evaluate the quality of private well water in proximity to natural gas extraction sites. This talk will report on the results of their studies to date, future plans, and the opportunity presented by his baseline studies of future fracking sites.
Clinical Applications of LC-MS:  Development and Research Application of a Highly Sensitive LC-MS Method for Quantification of a Cholesterol Protein in Plasma
Thursday, May 15 , 2014, 8:00 AM PDT/ 11:00 AM EDT/ 4:00 PM BST/ 5:00 PM CEST
This webinar will discuss this method, from method development (optimal antibody determination using MSIA and SRM LC–MS-MS in terms of PTM determination, LOD/LOQ, and linearity over PCSK9’s clinical dynamic range) to applying to a test case with control plasma samples and samples with a known mutation to determine method specificity. In summary, a robust and sensitive MSIA-SRM method was developed for the absolute quantification of all PCSK9 domains and a PTM in plasma.

Tuesday, May 20, 2014, 8:00 AM PDT/ 11:00 AM EDT/ 4:00 PM BST/ 5:00 PM CEST
The food safety industries have significantly increased their interest in understanding an element’s various chemical forms due to pending legislative pressures. This webcast will provide insight into the latest developments in speciation technology and offer proof data for a wide variety of applications, including arsenic species in apple juice and rice syrup and iodine species in milk.
Part Three: Editors’ Series: Analysis and Identification of Emerging Contaminants and their Transformation Products in River Water, Urban Water, and Hospital Wastewaters: Sample Preparation and LC-MS Techniques
Wednesday, May 21, 2014, 8:00 AM PDT/ 10:00 AM EDT/ 11:00 AM EDT
Tune in to learn about advanced methods — with special emphasis on green methods —for sample preparation, GC–MS, GC with comprehensive MS, and LC–MS for contaminants including current and emerging disinfection byproducts, odorous compounds and precursors, hormones and pharmaceuticals, and pesticides and their byproducts.
Features of Different Mass Analysers Applied to Multi-Allergen Screening
Wednesday, May 28, 2014 
8:00 AM PDT/ 11:00 AM EDT/ 4:00 PM BST/ 5:00 PM CEST
In this webinar, a comparison of two mass spectrometry-based approaches for multiplex detection of residual allergens in food matrices will be presented.
Suitability of Ionic Liquid GC Columns for Various Applications
Thursday, June 12, 2014, 8:00 AM PDT/ 10:00 AM CDT/ 11:00 AM EDT
Discover the features and benefits of ionic liquid GC columns: More interaction mechanisms, to provide selectivity options; no hydroxyls, reducing damage from moisture and oxygen; extended polarity, for increased orthogonality.
