The evolving state of the industry and the reality of next generation proteomics - two themes evident at ASMS 2018 that may well change the MS world.
Mass spectrometry is a highly sensitive technique, and accordingly, applications including trace analysis of complex mixtures require high purity water.
We detail some of the fundamentals of liquid chromatography and examine emerging trends and new products -- with a focus on nanoflow and chip-based technologies.
Poor quality data such as shifting retention times, loss of resolution or ghost peaks could be an indication of contamination caused by lab water quality.
Trends in instrument efficiency have led to the design of smaller more efficient technologies for environmental testing, food safety, forensics, and more.
