Traditional methods for isolating and detecting metabolites in aromatic compounds have involved heated solvent extraction and take up to 48 hours. Learn how to automate the process without the use of solvents and provide faster results.
Discover what investigators learned when they deployed automated sample-prep for ultrasonic extraction of plant materials in a metabolomics study.
Vital to human life, amino acids are important markers of metabolic disorders. Learn how one lab automated the GC/MS analysis procedure for amino acids.
The liner of your gas chromatography equipment must be changed frequently, due to matrix residue buildup. Do it faster with automated liner exchange.
GERSTEL was pleased to host users of Agilent Technologies’ UHPLC instrumentation for a Master Class training session.
Not all GC/MS analyses require a solvent to be successful. Come hear from leaders in the field how you can reduce or eliminate the use of solvents in your work. Solventless Sample Preparation Techniques for Mass Spectrometric Analysis PittCon 2015 – New Orleans, Louisiana
When people talk about Thermal Desorption (TD), GCMS, and the software for both, the word ‘integration’ and/or ‘easy to use’ or something like that often comes up in regards to the TD system software.
To date, sample preparation of solid materials requiring ultrasonic extraction has mostly been performed manually. This is in part due to the fact that automation of the sonication step has not previously been available; however, another reason is that the solid particulate can create a suspension in the extraction solvent, which can easily block a syringe, making automated collection of the extract and subsequent injection to the GC or LC unreliable.
The analysis of airborne aldehydes and ketones first involves collection of the analytes by passing air through a cartridge containing 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH).
The determination of opioids, cocaine, and metabolites from blood serum is a routine task in forensic laboratories. Typical methods include many manual or semi-automated steps like protein precipitation, dilution, solid phase extraction, evaporation, and derivatization preced¬ing GC/MS or LC/MS analysis.
