Upcoming Webcasts

A New Class of Photoresponsive Polymers that Undergo Controlled and Complete Polymer Chain Scission Upon Irradiation at 300nm
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
11:00 AM EDT
Stimuli responsive materials are of interest in a number of applications. Of these, photoresponsive materials have a unique advantage since their response can be temporally controlled. We have developed a series of photodegradable phenacyl based polycarbonates.
High-Pressure IC for Increased Resolution in Beverage Analysis
Thursday, May 17, 2012
11:00 AM EDT
Here we discuss the advantages of high pressure capillary IC to provide highly resolved peak separations and determine important analytes in beverages.
PRIME: Next Generation Proteomics
Wednesday, May 23, 2012
9:00 AM EDT
Proteomics analyses are among the most challenging analyses that can be addressed with mass spectrometry. From bottom-up to top-down approaches, we will give an overview of the solution's capabilities in today's most challenging proteomics areas, such as identification, quantification and characterization from highly complex samples in proteomics and glycoproteomics, or tissue-based biomarker identification.
EDITORS' SERIES: Optimizing GC Methods for Speed: More than Just Columns
Wednesday, May 23, 2012
2:00 PM EDT
In this web seminar, a brief overview of column-related strategies for improving GC method speed will be presented, followed by a discussion of implications on the other components of the method.
Pushing the Limits in LC/MS-MS Sensitivity: Advanced Technology to Produce, Focus and Detect More Ions
Tuesday, June 5, 2012
10:00 AM EDT
This webinar will focus on revolutionary new LC/MS/MS technology that pushes the limits in sensitivity for challenging assays through advances in ionization efficiencies, ion transmission techniques, and next-generation detection systems.
Using Automated Software for Improved Results in GC-Triple Quadrupole Pesticide Analysis
Thursday, June 7, 2012
11:00 AM EDT
New challenges that arise when using GC-triple quadrupole technology for complex analysis, such as pesticides in food, include the determination of the selected reaction monitoring (SRM) transitions that make up a typical MS/MS method and the maintenance of the acquisition windows when a large number of compounds are being monitored.

In this webinar, a strategy for addressing both of these challenges is discussed in the context of new software designed to automate common method development and method maintenance tasks.
