5 Applications That Benefit from a New Dimension in Selectivity

Dec 21, 2017 | Blogs, Technology | 0 comments

Mass spectrometry can provide exceptional sensitivity, selectivity, resolution, throughput, and mass accuracy, but certain applications demand additional levels of selectivity. This is where differential ion mobility technology comes in. It delivers highly-selective, robust and powerful ion separation, adding analytical performance to your existing technology.

Discover the Benefits of SelexION® DMS for Your Workflow Challenges

1. Lipidomics: Do you find unambiguous identification and quantitation of lipid molecular species in total lipid extracts difficult due to overlapping isobaric and isomeric species? SelexION technology can resolve multiple lipid classes from complex lipid matrices prior to MS analysis to enable more confident identification of lipid species and more accurate quantitation by MS/MS.

2. Peptide and Protein Quantitation: Do your peptides and proteins suffer from interferences, poor fragmentation, and lack of quality unique peptides compared to background? SelexION technology can be used to help remove sample interferences and separate isobaric peptide species, resulting in more sensitive and selective detection and quantitation of large molecule targets.

With the risk of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination and accumulation in humans and wildlife on the rise, it is important to continuously improve and demonstrate capabilities for accurate and precise low-level quantification in research and...

Rescheduling a Schedule I substance, and the Delta-8 controversy

Did you know that in the US, drugs and other chemicals are classified into 5 distinct categories depending on the drug’s acceptable medical use and its potential for abuse or dependency?  Drugs federally classified as Schedule I substances by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are considered to have the highest potential for abuse and for creating severe psychological and/or physical dependence. In addition to heroin, LSD and MDMA (ecstasy), cannabis is classified as a Schedule I substance in the Controlled Substance Act of 1970, which means it has no approved medical usage.
