Demand for trace metals analysis in the environmental laboratory is growing strongly due to stricter environmental regulations. ICP has previously been the standard for metals analysis, but as demand for lower detection levels grows, labs are experiencing a significant transition to ICP-MS. This transition is placing increased emphasis on the sample preparation method.
Bruker has released an application note detailing a simple, fast and robust method developed for the quantitation of sulfonamides in honey, using Bruker’s EVOQ Elite triple quadruple liquid chromatography mass spectrometer (LC-MS/MS).
Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed efficient high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) methods combined with ultraviolet detection to determine carbonyl compounds found in vehicle passenger cabin air samples.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed an accurate and reproducible method that uses an innovative ion chromatography system for the determination of methylamine (or monomethylamine, MMA) in drug products.
Application Note (AN) 1050: Evaluating Protein Glycosylation in Limited-Quantity Samples by HPAE-PAD demonstrates that a suite of HPAE-PAD analyses can be performed with sample quantities as low as 3–10 μg
