Incognito ruminates on the value of setting up a method from scratch.
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.

Research Partnership Between Shimadzu and the University of Texas at Arlington
The University of Texas at Arlington (UT) (Texas, USA) has announced its investment of $7.5 million into the creation of the Institute for Research Technologies at UT Arlington, adding to the philanthropic investment made by Shimadzu (Duisburg, Germany) earlier this year.
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:

Maximize Laboratory Productivity Using Streamlined Gas Chromatography
Wednesday, November 7, 2012
8:00 AM PST; 11:00 AM EST; 15:00 GMT
In this webinar, we present new methodologies for tailoring the software and hardware configuration to the application. These streamlined environmental and petrochemical workflows automate sample preparation and all the software operations, such as integration, calibrations, and calculations to deliver ease-of-use and laboratory productivity.
Editors' Series: UHPLC: Where We Might Go
Thursday, November 8, 2012
11:00 AM EST; 8:00 AM PST
Ultrahigh-pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC) columns today are 5 to 15 cm long, packed with sub-2-micron particles, and operated with upper pressure limits of 15,000 to 18,000 psi. In comparison to HPLC, current UHPLC instrumentation has emphasized separation speed over separation efficiency.
Multidimensional and Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography—Methods and Applications
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
2:00 PM EST; 11:00 AM PST
This presentation will review a number of the approaches available to bring innovative methods to the field of MDGC and GCxGC, discuss interpretation of some of these, and finally complete the tour of MDGC with selected applications.
Series: Increasing the Scope of your Analytical Toolbox with UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography (UPC2)
Wednesday, November 14, 2012
9:00 AM EST; 15:00 (GMT + 1)
Do you know what your next sample will be? Could it be hydrophobic, hydrophilic, volatile, non-volatile or chiral? Are you being challenged to reduce toxic solvent waste and go green? Which technique will you choose from your analytical toolbox to get the best possible separation? In this webcast series, we’ll discuss how analytical laboratories can benefit from UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography™ (UPC²™) a new category of separation science that provides an exponential increase in performance and selectivity to the chromatographic laboratory.
Editors' Series: Turning up The Heat: Optimizing Temperature in Liquid Chromatography
Tuesday, November 27, 2012
9:00 AM EST; 15:00 (GMT + 1)
The use of high temperature in HPLC is very limited because of a general feeling that;
  • Stationary phases are not stable at elevated temperatures.
  • Compounds will thermally degrade at elevated temperatures. This presentation will demonstrate that by using high temperatures effectively these pre-conceptions can be addressed and also introduce the chromatographer into a world of unforeseen benefits
Editors' Series: Gas Chromatography with Single- and Triple-Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry: Principles, Potential, Limitations, and Applications
In this web seminar, we will describe and critically compare the use of comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) gas chromatography (GC×GC) with a single-quadrupole mass spectrometer (MS), against one-dimensional GC in combination with a triple-quadrupole (QQQ) mass spectrometry instrument. The benefits and disadvantages of each methodology will be discussed, illustrated by examples from the field of food analysis. Also, the combination of GC×GC with a triple-quadrupole mass spectrometer will be discussed, along with a series of significant applications. The emphasis will not only be devoted to the potential of GC×GC-QQQ MS, but also to the following question: Does such a combination make sense? More...
