Did you know the X500B QTOF system makes point and click workflows for Biologics Characterization possible on your mass spectrometer? The newly-designed SCIEX OS software interface brings to life fluid navigation and ease of use so you can keep moving forward on your scientific discoveries. In fact, it’s so simple to learn and operate that you and your team can be up and running faster than you might expect.

Hard to believe? Check out our new video series and see how easy it can be to get started with SCIEX OS on the X500B QTOF system.

Move Your Biotherapeutic Along Faster
What’s different with the X500B? The new SCIEX OS software was built from the ground up to facilitate the X500B’s usability for every scientist, not just mass spec expertsThe software uses an intuitive, icon-oriented interface so you can logically set up and optimize new methods. Instead of spending time and money on advanced training, you simply get to work. What’s more, SCIEX OS software features simple point and click method-building tools to create and optimize high-performance methods.

Let Your Productivity Soar the X500B QTOF and SCIEX OS Software:

  • Enjoy the no-worry sample queue, which seamlessly incorporates protein calibration into your methods to ensure mass accuracy, even over large batches of samples
  • Use the SCIEX OS Explorer function to quickly visualize and review data during acquisition, in real time
  • Connect to BioPharmaView data processing software for fast answers to your characterization questions

You’ll be surprised how simple it is to increase your productivity.

Watch the short SCIEX OS introduction video series to see how easy it is for you to get fast, high-quality results in the point and click world.


Telling the PFAS story with pine needles

As an ever-expanding group of chemicals, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) require novel techniques to monitor their current and historical presence in the environment. Concerns over exposure to PFAS chemicals continue to grow, with some having known toxic characteristics and the potential effects of others remaining unknown.1 In addition, while PFAS are one of the most persistent synthetic chemicals to date, most of them hardly degrade in the environment.2 So, how long do traces of PFAS last in our environment? Two tools used to help answer this question are active samplers and passive samplers.

Back to the new basics: Part 3 | LC vs. LC-MS and what it means for your lab

In this final installment of our “Back to the new basics” series, we take one more look at analytical techniques and best practices in the lab, and opportunities to improve efficiency. Here, we explore the basic principles of high-performance liquid chromatography (LC) and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS), and how these techniques can affect a lab’s efficiency and productivity.

Meat vs plant based. What is the best option?

As we become more conscious about the planet, healthier lifestyles and our duty to protect the environment, attitudes and behaviours are shifting when it comes to food consumption.
