LCGC TV: Do We Need More LC Stationary Phases?
In this new video from LCGC TV, Dick Henry, consultant, discusses a trend that could renew efforts towards developing novel LC stationary phases with improved selectivity, peak symmetry, and stability. The question is, however, whether we really need more stationary phases in HPLC. Watch the video and find out. More...
Waters introduces the ACQUITY QDa Detector
The future is now separated from the past.  Imagine a lab where all analytical scientists can acquire high-quality mass spectral data. On their own. Within their existing workflows. Across every sample. Without training. Waters imagined just that and introduces the ACQUITY QDa Detector. Click Here
Cleaning Up the Genome
A new proteogenomics method using high-resolution isoelectric focusing together with liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (HiRIEF LC–MS) — developed by researchers from Karolinska Institute and Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) in Sweden — has been published in the journal Nature Methods.1 More...
Potent Long-Lived Greenhouse Gas Discovered
Researchers at the University of Toronto (Toronto, Canada), funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, have discovered a potential long-lived greenhouse gas, perfluorotributylamine (PFTBA), that could be a contributing factor towards global climate change.1  Published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, the study performed gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) and spectroscopic techniques to suggest that PFTBA can have a bigger impact on climate than carbon dioxide.

The Origins of GC Carrier Gases: Putting a Genie in the Bottle
Have you wondered how the gas chromatography (GC) carrier gases helium, hydrogen, argon, and nitrogen are transformed from their natural conditions or precursors into highly purified compressed states inside laboratory gas cylinders or generators? In the latest instalment of “GC Connections”, John Hinshaw tracks the genesis of the top four carrier gases before they start their journey through a GC system. More...
Taking Quality Time Out
Management culture is stifling automation of analytical methods. Incognito asks is it time to review the paradigms of your analysis and implement change? Let us know your thoughts. More...
