Original Broadcast Date: Thursday March 7, 2013The development of user-friendly, affordable and versatile MS techniques has enabled an increasing acceptance of MS for various applications, to characterize both small molecules and larger biological entities. MS has also been coupled with techniques like chromatography, electrophoresis, and NMR to further enhance its analytical capabilities. However, some challenges continue to impact its use.
Our panel of technical experts will provide details and data showing how mass spectrometry can be effectively used for diverse applications such as, compound analysis, protein characterization, biomarker discovery, and metabolite profiling. They will call on their experience and expertise to highlight some of the current challenges in using MS and how those can be minimized or eliminated. The webinar will also provide attendees an opportunity to ask questions related to the issues they are facing with MS and get answers in real-time. The target audience for this webinar includes scientists in academia or industry in pharmaceutical drug discovery or biomarker research, CROs, laboratory technicians and managers as well as clinicians, who are using or looking to use mass spectrometry systems.
