Mass spectrometry

While formidable masses are comparatively easy to measure, molecules and small particles require advanced techniques, such as mass spectrometry. A flow of new applications have been developed in a variety of fields, ranging from pharmacokinetics and microbiology to chemical analytics and medical diagnostics to environmental and even space research, the instruments often being combined with chromatographic techniques and large databases. This special topic updates you on recent developments.

  • Waiting for the future?

    A major topic during the HTC conference held in Bruges, which is focused on issues relating to hyphenation processes involving HPLC and innovative detection techniques, was the discussion concerning system volumes of modern UHPLC systems. It is again clear, according to many experts at least, that column and particle technology has outperformed the capabilities of modern UHPLC instruments. more

  • The Third Dimension

    Proteins play a fundamental role in our day-to-day lives. Thanks to proteins we can speak, move about and think; they protect us from disease and repair damage to our bodies. Proteins are also becoming more popular as active pharmaceutical ingredients: in 2012, the market share of biopharmaceuticals in Germany was 21% (figures from German-language report “Medical Biotechnology in Germany 2013”). more
