Spectroscopy Spotlight
Metallomics Methods and Applications with ICP-MS
Professor Joseph Caruso of the University of Cincinnati recently spoke with us about metallomics methods and applications with ICP-MS.
Optimum FTIR Performance, Sensitivity, and Reliability
Ideal for high-precision infrared analysis in a multitude of applications, Shimadzu’s IRAffinity-1 features best-in-class sensitivity, long-term stability, increased reliability with continuous monitoring during operation, and protection from humidity with a triple protection interferometer. Ideal for the analysis of contaminants and identification tests, analysis support programs enable users with minimal experience to fully utilize the instrument’s functionality. Learn more.

Mammoth Collagen Sequenced Using Mass Spectrometry
Scientists from the University of York (York, United Kingdom) and the University of Manchester (Manchester, United Kingom) have used an ultra-high resolution mass spectrometer to extract proteins from the bones of a 600,000-year-old mammoth.
Low cost elemental analysis by EDXRF spectroscopy just got better with the introduction of the new ultra-compact Rigaku NEX QC benchtop analyzer. This analytical tool delivers rapid quantitative determination of sodium (11Na) to uranium (92U) in solids, liquids and powders. Specifically designed for routine quality control applications, it features an intuitive "icon-driven" touch screen interface for easy operation and a built-in printer for convenience. Read More
