Is it Time to Replace Your Chromatography Data System?
A new white paper that outlines the three main drivers for considering a new chromatography data system (CDS) and how your lab can benefit. Obtain guidance in making the decision to replace an existing CDS and get practical "factors to consider" that address common concerns. Download white paper to learn more.
Hijacking the Immune System
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) evades clearance by the immune system by hijacking the very traps it produces, transforming these same traps into a toxic compound according to a paper published in Science.1 Scientists from the University of Chicago (Chicago, USA) used high performance liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (HPLC–MS) to identify the toxin as 2’-deoxyadenosine (dAdo).

Practical Gas Chromatography
Questions about how practical proposed gas chromatography (GC) method changes are often come up during optimization for speed and resolution, or while converting to a different carrier gas. Related objective measurements such as the optimum practical carrier gas velocity were defined more than 40 years ago. This instalment of GC Connections reviews such metrics in the light of their relevance to today's GC challenges. More...
