BioTools Inc., of Jupiter Florida, and Chiral Technologies Inc., of West Chester, Pennsylvania, have entered into a cooperative agreement that will provide comprehensive coverage of chirality-related services and technologies ranging from small scale and preparative chromatography to absolute configuration of chiral compounds.

High-definition screening by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) is shown to be a viable option for the reliable identification of odorous compounds in pork.

A critical look into the future of imaging mass spectrometry is made by addressing some of the fundamental and technical challenges that still need to be overcome.

Ion mobility–mass spectrometry (IM-MS) is outlined as a separations method, several examples of the utility of IM-MS for complex biological measurements are illustrated, and the implications of this approach for systems biology research are discussed.
