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.
EDITOR'S SERIES: A Roadmap for Rapid HPLC Method Development: A Practical Three-Pronged Approach
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
11:00 AM EDT
HPLC method development is a challenging task, requiring the ability to optimize a large number of dependent and independent variables for complex samples. The traditional method development approach, while well accepted, is difficult to implement in practice, particularly for those with little experience. In this seminar, we describe the concept of a practical, three-pronged approach for rapid method development.
