Separation of 2AB Labeled N-Glycans from Bovine Fetuin on a Novel Mixed-Mode Stationary Phase
Udayanath Aich, Xiaodong Liu, Srinivasa Rao, Chris Pohl, Thermo Fisher Scientific
In this note we demonstrate unique selectivity and excellent resolution for glycans released from fetuin.  This is shown with the analysis of fluorescently labeled N-glycans released from proteins (bovine fetuin) and separated by hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) / weak anion exchange mixed-mode chromatography. The separation is carried out with a 1.9 μm Thermo Scientific™ GlycanPac™ AXH-1 column using fluorescence detection. The method exhibits excellent separation based on charge, size, and polarity. This phase also provides a unique tool for quantifying glycans based on charge. It is designed for high-resolution and high-throughput analysis with unique selectivity for biologically important glycans. Read more

A Proactive Approach to Reference Material Production for New Psychoactive Substances
Novel legal highs or research chemicals can appear on the market quite suddenly, and may have a very brief lifetime. This presents commercial difficulties for manufacturers of reference materials, requiring a proactive approach to the production of these substances — and anticipation of future trends in drug use — to allow forensic and clinical laboratories to keep ahead of the game.
