Setting up custom on-column nanoflow calibration for the ZenoTOF 7600 system using PepCalMix

Setting up custom on-column nanoflow calibration for the ZenoTOF 7600 system using PepCalMix

For nanoflow workflows using the ZenoTOF 7600 system and the standard nanoflow interface, on-column calibration is required and can be incorporated automatically into the SCIEX OS software acquisition batch. Here, step-by-step instructions are provided to set up a...

Using Scheduled Ionization to reduce system ion load for proteomics data acquisition

Using Scheduled Ionization to reduce system ion load for proteomics data acquisition

When analyzing highly complex samples from biological matrices, there can be significant amounts of material that elute in the wash cycle of the LC run, depending on the up-front sample preparation used.  The Scheduled Ionization mode, available in both SCIEX OS...

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

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.

Back to the new basics: Part 2 | Do I need a single quadrupole or a triple quadrupole system?

Back to the new basics: Part 2 | Do I need a single quadrupole or a triple quadrupole system?

In this second installment of our 3-part “Back to the new basics” series, we continue to look at ways to improve lab productivity by using efficient techniques. The number of instrument options out there can be mind-boggling. Finding the right instrument—one that offers varying degrees of sensitivity, selectivity and specificity to meet your analytical needs—can be an intimidating challenge.
