Advancing Nontargeted Analysis of Water

LC–MS techniques, particularly those using high-resolution MS and nontargeted analysis, are advancing many areas of water research. Here, Imma Ferrer of the University of Colorado shares some of her recent work in this field.

Award Symposium: The LCGC Lifetime Achievement and Emerging Leader Awards

This afternoon, the winners of the LCGC Awards will be honored in an oral symposium at Pittcon. Pat Sandra of the Research Institute for Chromatography will receive the 2017 LCGC Lifetime Achievement Award at 1:30, and Deirdre Cabooter of the University of Leuven will receive the 2017 LCGC Emerging Leader Award at 3:40 pm, just after the break.

The Challenge of Accurate Protein Bioanalysis

In recent years, liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS) methods have been increasingly adopted as a replacement for ligand‑binding assays to monitor the fate of drugs in vivo. Such bioanalysis of protein-based pharmaceuticals (biopharmaceuticals) is more challenging, however, than it is for small-molecule drugs. Rainer Bischoff of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands has been exploring approaches to overcome these challenges. He recently spoke to us about this work.

Gas Chromatography Applications

The Tuesday afternoon session on gas chromatography (GC) applications includes three talks from instrument vendors.
