Breath Test Diagnosis for Diseases
Researchers at Swansea University (Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom) are using GCMS-TD technology to analyze the concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in breath.
MIT Develops Tiny Gas Sensor
Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), in Cambridge, Massachusetts, are designing a tiny sensor that can detect minute quantities of hazardous gases more efficiently and quickly than current devices on the market.
Agilent Receives Sustainability Award
Agilent Technologies (Palo Alto, California) has been recognized as one of the "Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World" for the fourth consecutive year.
Successful Extraction of Basic Drugs from Plasma Using Mixed-Mode Solid-Phase Extraction
This article aims to demonstrate the unique capability of resin-based mixed-mode solid-phase extraction (SPE) to achieve efficient extraction of basic drugs from plasma. Optimized pore size of the method minimizes retention of high molecular weight matrix components present in the biological fluid samples. The interferences are removed, ensuring extremely clean extracts for subsequent liquid chromatography?mass spectrometry-mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS) analysis.
A Robust Method for the Analysis of Biodiesels Using a Self-Cleaning Atmospheric-Pressure Ionization Source
This article describes a LC-MS method for the analysis of biodiesels, particularly the characterization of FAMES.
