IC-MS Simplifies Complex Environmental Sample Analysis

chromatography water testing applications

Environmental sample analysis can be challenging since it requires both sensitive detection and the removal of any matrix interferences. Ion chromatography is the preferred separation technique for ionic species including inorganic anions/cations, small amines and organic acids, peptides and proteins, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates. The increasing demand for sensitivity leads to the emergence of a mass spectrometer (MS) with enhanced transmission efficiency for low mass ions as a powerful complementary detector to conductivity, UV and electrochemical detection.

Chromatography and Sample Preparation Terminology Guide

This is a very short blog post as I wanted to share the news on some new chromatography syringe filters that have been added to our range of syringe filter. 

Ion Chromatography & MS/MS: Quantitative Profiling of Nucleotides

nucleotide profiling and quantitation

In this collaborative study, researchers from the University of California, Riverside, and our Applications Lab in Sunnyvale, California, developed a sensitive, reproducible, capillary ion chromatography and mass spectrometry method for the simultaneous quantitation of 19 native and 2 modified nucleotides.

Next Generation Ion Chromatography Suppressor Introduced!

suppressed ion chromatography

We just released a new ion chromatography suppressor (Thermo Scientific Dionex ERS 500 Electrolytically Regenerated Suppressor) and I thought our blog readers would be interested in learning about the new features of this particular suppressor.

I am really pleased to blog a botany research study using one of our Ion Chromatography systems coupled with Mass Spectrometry (IC-MS) as this is the first ion chromatography applications for botany on this blog!

Ion Chromatography & MS Method for Direct Analysis of Fluoroacetate

fluoroacetate analysis

Fluoroacetate (link to U.S. EPA)--a strong metabolic poison with no known antidotes--is commonly used as a rodenticide and predacide (control avian and mammalian wildlife) and has been banned or restricted in many countries. For example, the U.S. EPA has placed sodium fluoroacetate in Toxicity Category I indicating the highest degree for acute oral toxicity.
