Tips & tricks for MS
Mass spectrometry (MS) is a well-established detection technique that can be coupled to various sample introduction techniques, such as liquid chromatography (LC), thin layer chromatography (TLC), gas chromatography (GC), or inductively coupled plasma (ICP) – please find there also our ms compendium.
LCGC TV: Is 2D LC Ready for Prime Time Analysis?
2D LC has huge potential to increase the resolving power of separations involving complex samples. In this new video clip, Dwight Stoll of Gustavus Adolphus College considers if this technique is ready to be adopted by chromatographers working in industry.

Recent Developments in Ion Mobility MS for Bioanalysis
This article reviews recent developments that aim to address the conflicting demands for higher throughput, sensitivity, and selectivity in bioanalysis applications.

5 Ways to Improve Your Split/Splitless Injection Technique
To improve your split/splitless injection you need to understand the process. Split/splitless injectors typically vaporize a sample dissolved in a suitable organic solvent under increased temperature.  The sample vapors are entrained into the carrier gas flow inside a “liner” or “sleeve” within the inlet and then pass into the column or out of the inlet via the “split” line/valve.
