We invite you to join GERSTEL, Inc. at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry
The GERSTEL Spring Open featured strategies on how to improve your LC or GC analyses efficiency. It also provided a great opportunity to explore cost saving functionality, view live product demonstrations and meet industry experts.
Automated SIFT-MS is the result of the recent collaboration between GERSTEL and Syft Technologies to provide turnkey automated platforms for SIFT-MS solutions in routine and R&D laboratories.
Currently, 26 US states have approved medical marijuana in their legislature, while another 16 have decriminalized possession and 4 states (plus DC) have legalized marijuana use. Marijuana per se driving laws for driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) were enacted in 17 states, making it illegal for someone to operate a vehicle with detectable THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) or its major metabolite, THCOOH (11-nor-9-carboxy-THC), in blood and/or urine. A majority of those states have zero tolerance laws while some of them enforce specific THC driving cutoffs (1-5 ng/mL THC). However, low THC levels can be detected in frequent cannabis smokers’ blood up to 30 days after last use during sustained abstinence, making cannabinoid data interpretation difficult.
Recent increases in requests from regulators for extractables and leachables evaluation have gone beyond what is in the base ISO tests.
With the demand for chemical analysis and problem solving growing, what kind of skills are industries looking for?
Identifying DDT and other hydrophobic organic contaminants is important for analyzing sediments. New SPME techniques offer more precise, cheaper analysis.
Leachables from medical implants are hazardous if they enter the blood. A new SBSE method detects leachables even at very low concentrations.
Pharmaceutical product quality control follows strict guidelines. Schülke and Mayr maintained QC rules and met rising workload with an automated MPS.
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.
