An Evaluation of the Suitability of 1.9 µm Particle Packed Columns for Proteomics Applications
  A poster presented at the Montreux LC/MS symposium in November, demonstrates an initial investigation into the suitability of Thermo Scientific Hypersil GOLD 1.9 µm PicoFrit columns for proteomics applications. These columns exhibited superb peak width and peak shape for protein digest samples of both low and high complexity, allowing for increased peak capacity and the potential for the identification of a greater number of peptide fragments. Learn more.

Identification of Psychotropic Substances in Mushrooms and Chocolate by UHPLC/MS
 

Identification of controlled substances in food matrices is a challenge for forensic laboratories. Classical techniques, such as color tests and thin-layer chromatography, do not provide molecular structural information and cannot be used as a principal means of identification. Read more  how to Identify, separate and confirm psilocybin and psilocin in mushroom and chocolate matrices in this application note. (PDF, 309KB)

Quantitative Analysis of Pseudoephedrine Tablets by UHPLC/MS
Pseudoephedrine and ephedrine are highly coveted by drug traffickers who use them to manufacture methamphetamine for the illicit drug market. The separation and identification of pseudoephedrine from illicit drug mixtures, especially methamphetamine group compounds, will help to identify the sources and the manufacturing pathway of the methamphetamine seized in the illicit drug market.

GC-MS Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Food Using a Modified QuEChERS Approach to Sample Preparation
Recently released application notes describe the use of Thermo Scientific QuEChERS products in conjunction with the Thermo Scientific ITQ 700 GC-Ion Trap MS for the analysis of pesticide residues in lettuce and onion. Method detection limits readily meet or exceed regulatory requirements for pesticides in these foods, and the modified QuEChERS approach ensures samples that are amenable to GC-MS analysis. Learn more about these and other GC & GC-MS food safety solutions here.
