Bisphenol A Evaluation in Baby Feeding Bottles
The monomer bisphenol A (BPA) is used to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins and has been present in many plastic bottles and metal food and drinks cans since the 1960s
Automated One Step Solid Phase Extraction and Concentration
The FMS PowerPrep SPE system is the first total sample prep technology to combine SPE extraction and concentration into one step. The system is designed to simplify, improve, and increase productivity by automating the manual steps of the laboratory's sample preparation processes. The PowerPrep SPE system accepts all SPE cartridge and column formats. The system is expandable from 1 to 6 modules and can run up to 6 samples simultaneously and 30 sequentially.

Agilent Announces Largest Acquisition In Its History
Agilent Technologies Inc. (Santa Clara, California, USA) has announced that it is to acquire Dako (Glostrup, Denmark), the cancer diagnostic company.
Kromasil HILIC-D
Kromasil HILIC-D is designed for the best selectivity of polar compounds like organic acids, nucleobases, and water soluble vitamins. You may expect the opposite elution order and a different selectivity compared to a standard C18 in reversed phase mode. The phase is low bleed and solvents used when running in HILIC mode are fully compatible for MS detection. For more info and a special offer:

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. More...
Sample Preparation in Food Analysis
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
2:00 PM EDT
This web seminar will address the topic of sample preparation strategies and techniques in food analysis in a holistic manner, covering topics such as sample homogeneity, extraction modalities, and isolation of compounds of interest, with a focus on practical examples rather than theory. We will also discuss one of the "hot topics" in food analysis - sample preparation for the determination of polyphenolic compounds.
Mass Spectrometry Tool Box - Biopharmaceutical Characterization
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
11:00 AM EDT
To achieve a greater understanding of your biotherapeutic product and to satisfy the stringent requirements of the regulators, characterization strategies need to be employed throughout biopharmaceutical discovery, development, regulatory approval and production. Mass spectrometric tools can help provide you with the necessary characterization knowledge quickly and confidently.
EDITORS' 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.
