Software and Data Handling
Recent years have seen the emergence of smartphones and tablet computers, providing even greater convenience and connectivity to users. These and other technological developments are offering more opportunities than ever to the already wide-reaching field of chromatography software. We spoke to Mark Harnois, director of informatics product management at Waters Corporation, about where he sees the industry progressing.
The Thermo Scientific Q Exactive benchtop LC-MS/MS combines high-performance quadrupole precursor selection with high-resolution, accurate-mass (HR/AM) Orbitrap detection to deliver high performance and tremendous versatility.  With a fast scan speed and multiplexing capabilities, the Q Exactive mass spectrometer is an outstanding detector for fast chromatography separation techniques.  Ideally suited for drug metabolism, proteomics, environmental analysis, food safety, toxicology and clinical research applications.
