Mass spectrometry

The use of mass spectrometry as an analytical method has become indispensable in laboratories and the process industry. The wide range of application scenarios and the possibility of combining them with separation methods such as chromatography make it an all-rounder in chemical analysis. The areas covered are manifold, whether in diagnostics, biotechnology, trace analysis or environmental chemistry, mass spectrometers are always used to obtain exact results.

The Philae Lander

You’ve probably heard the great news over the weekend that the European Space Agency’s Philae lander has awoken from its 7 month slumber on Comet 67P, and is once again relaying collected data back to Earth. You might have less of an idea, however, of what this data is, and why it’s important. This more

Why Does Asparagus Make Urine Smell?

The latest food chemistry graphic looks at the chemistry of asparagus – specifically, why it causes the urine of some (but not all) people to smell. Over the past forty years several papers have been published on the subject, and several studies undertaken, to try and determine the chemical compound more

Mass Spectrometry and Interpreting Mass Spectra

For the fourth in the analytical chemistry series, we turn to mass spectrometry. So far, we’ve looked at how chemists can determine the presence of particular bonds present in molecules with infrared spectroscopy, and how they can gain information about the structure of molecules using hydrogen and more

  • Lipidomics – a new kid on the “OMICS” block

    Progress in research is – to a large extent – driven by technological and analytical advance-ments. This is particularly true for the field of lipid research in the biomedical field, which was hampered for decades by the limited availability of analytical tools to address the enormous complexity of lipids in the human body. Now we are entering the era of “lipidomics”, which aims at addressing the entire complement of lipids in a biological sample, with wide ranging applica-tions in basic research, biotechnoloy and biomedicine (for the state-of-the-art see also: Opinion articles on Lipidomics, [1]). more

  • Authentic food

    Authentic food is growing in popularity with consumers. In a heavily industrialized market, a regional, single-source and/or specially manufactured product is increasingly becoming a guarantor of greater value. In the premium segment in particular, economically motivated “food fraud” can reap huge profits. 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
