Jorgenson at ASMS on the Future of LC–MS
At the ASMS 2011 conference, Jim Jorgenson of the University of North Carolina shared his thoughts on current and potential future developments in LC that will affect the practice of LC–MS. Here are his views on particle size, superficially porous particles, monoliths, open-tubular columns, and questions of pressure and temperature.
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.

Using GCMS Workflow Solutions for Complete Analysis of POPs in Food from Trace Level Screening to Confirmatory Analyses
The topic of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) is one which is treated with increasing concern. POPs are chemical substances that are found in the environment and persist many years after formation. These chemicals bio-accumulate in fatty tissues and bio-magnify up the food chain potentially contaminating food consumed by humans. Due to this potential toxic contamination, the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) called for global action to be taken on POPs, leading to the international environmental treaty of the Stockholm Convention on persistent organic pollutants. This restricts the use of the most dangerous environmental contaminants; in 2010 the list of compounds was updated to include chlordecone, lindane, and beta hexachlorocyclohexane. In addition, organizations are encouraged to regularly monitor the levels of POPs to eliminate potential pollution. This article describes the current requirements for the analysis of POPs and the measures taken to improve workflows, enabling high throughput and low complexity screening using GC–MS–MS.

HPLC 2011 Highlights
As HPLC 2011 in Budapest is the first HPLC show since Thermo’s acquisition of Dionex, the company has been using the show to showcase a new expanded chromatography portfolio.
Shanghai Applications, Training and Service Center
Bruker has announced the opening of a new major applications, training and service center in Shanghai, China.

The performance of Orbitrap™ technology has revolutionized mass spectrometry. The Thermo Scientific Q Exactive benchtop LC-MS/MS is the next step in that revolution, combining high-performance quadrupole precursor selection with high-resolution, accurate-mass (HR/AM) Orbitrap detection for outstanding performance and tremendous versatility. The Q Exactive™ mass spectrometer is suited to untargeted or targeted screening with high-confidence confirmation, but is equally capable of a broad range of qualitative and quantitative applications. The superior quality of Q Exactive data enables identification and quantitation of more compounds with greater confidence. Learn More
