Mass spectrometry GC-MS
Waters and Restek have entered into a co-marketing agreement to give food safety laboratories access to gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) instrumentation and consumables for pesticide residue GC-MS analyses.
LECO Corporation has released the Pegasus BT 4D, which offers enhanced sensitivity by coupling the benchtop Pegasus BT TOF mass spectrometer with the GCxGC thermal modulation system. Software and hardware features simplify quantitation, while also making GCxGC easy to use and understand. The StayClean® ion source eliminates the need for source cleaning, while a convenient benchtop package saves valuable space in the laboratory.
The new Thermo Scientific TSQ 9000 triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS system and Thermo Scientific ISQ 7000 single quadrupole GC-MS system offer maximum uptime, ease-of-use and sensitivity to meet increasing resource and regulatory demands.
The Thermo Scientific Orbitrap GC-MS systems have been updated with new capabilities in high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) GC-MS.
Shimadzu have introduced the GCMS-TQ8050 triple quadrupole GC-MS, the latest in the series dating back to the GCMS-TQ8030 in 2012.
The study of metabolites in our sewage systems is not new, but there are particular difficulties with identifying the metabolites from new psychoactive substances, or “legal highs”. The authors describe a wide range of sample collection methodologies and their analysis with mass spectrometry.
