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.

While it sometimes seems questionable whether humanity and modern technology can coexist, technological advances in science can help pave the way to more compassionate business practices.

Using wastewater monitoring to assess exposure to PFAS

Per-and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) are known for their water- and grease-resistant properties, which make them useful in many everyday items. In fact, a study from 2020 estimated over 200 “use categories” covering more than 1,400 individual PFAS compounds in commercial products—they are truly all around us. Due to their extensive presence and potentially harmful effects (these effects are still mostly uncertain), exposure to PFAS is a growing concern. Humans and wildlife have been exposed to these chemicals through a variety of routes, including food packaging, drinking water and cleaning products.
