Technology Forum

UHPLC Technology Forum
New techniques in ultrahigh-pressure liquid chromatography (UPHLC) are providing scientists with additional ways to perform laboratory tasks. To learn more about the latest developments in UPHLC and the future of the technique, LCGC spoke with several experts in the field. Participants in this forum are Wulff Niedner, manager, LC products, Thermo Fisher; Mark Upton, liquid chromatography specialist, PerkinElmer, Seer Green, UK; and Doug McCabe, Senior Marketing Manager, Waters Corporation.
The Lowest Limits of LC-MS Detection
Agilent's iFunnel technology delivers today's lowest limits of LC/MS detection—providing the Agilent 6490 Triple Quadrupole & 6550 iFunnel Q-TOF LC/MS with breakthrough sensitivity. To learn more about the revolutionary iFunnel technology, plus what the complete Agilent 6400 Series LC/MS systems can do for your lab, visit.

Market Profile

Automated DNA Sequencers
Automating the DNA sequence process is made possible by the use of fluorescent tags. With fluorescent dyes, the entire experiment can be performed in a single solution instead of four different ones.
Featured Product

SOLARIS – Solvent Protection System for aqueous applications
SOLARIS brings the proven UV sterilization technique to your HPLC solvent reservoir.
SOLARIS sterilizes the solvent in the bottle and consequently protects all components of your chromatographic system from contamination including HPLC and light scattering instruments. SOLARIS supersedes the use of Sodium-Azideor other preservatives in the chromatography solvent.

ACQUITY UPLC I-Class System Strategies for Exploiting Sensitivity of Modern MS Detection
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
11:00 AM EDT
The new ACQUITY UPLC I-Class System has been designed to specifically address LC characteristics that are most critical when optimizing MS detection sensitivity. This webcast will outline the features of the system, review the technology enhancements that make the system's performance possible and discuss systematic strategies to optimize the ACQUITY UPLC I-Class System with even the most sensitive MS detectors.
Transitioning from Single Quadrupole toTriple Quadrupole GC/MS-based Metabolomics
Wednesday, October 26, 2011
11:00 AM EDT
Metabolomics expanded initially using a GC/MS based approach with single quadrupole instruments and heavy reliance on mass spectral deconvolution. In order for Metabolomics to evolve as a clinical tool, quantitative data is required and triple quadrupole mass spectrometers provide both lower limits of detection and improved precision.
Recent Innovations in QuEChERS in Food Safety Sample Preparation and Analysis
Thursday, October 27, 2011
2:00 PM EDT
In 2003, a landmark paper (J. AOAC Int. 2003, 86, 412-31) entitled "Fast and easy multiresidue method employing acetonitrile extraction/partitioning and 'dispersive solid-phase extraction' for the determination of pesticide residues in produce" introduced the method of QuEChERS, an acronym for the "Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe" procedures. In less than ten years time, QuEChERS has "evolutionized" food safety preparation procedures and it has probably been tried, evaluated, or used in practically every pesticide laboratory in the world.
More Capabilities for Studies in Metabolomics
Thursday, November 3, 2011
11:00 AM EDT
Two techniques often overlooked in this field are ion exchange chromatography (IC) and liquid chromatography coupled to electrochemical detection (LC-EC). This web seminar demonstrates how each technique can contribute "pieces of the puzzle" to better understand the metabolome.
The Benefits of Moving from Single to Multi-detector Size-exclusion Chromatography
Thursday, December 1, 2011
11:00 AM EDT
This webcast will provide an overview of multi-detector technologies and how they can benefit applications such as synthetic polymers, polysaccharides and proteins.
