Oak Harbor, WA, May 15, 2012 — An upcoming webinar on Mass Spectrometry describes a number of successful collaborations between senior researchers at IDEX Health & Science and the University of Calgary involving nanoliter-per-minute flow-stream additions introduced between an LC system and a Mass Spectrometer. Titled “Dynamic Low- Flow, Post-Column Mixing before Mass Spec Analyses,” the live webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20, 1p ET / 10a PT.

Bob McCarthy, R&D Director for IDEX Health & Science moderates the lively roundtable discussion that includes guest presenter, Professor David Schriemer, Ph.D., of the University of Calgary, and Darren Lewis, Ph.D., Strategic R&D Technology Director for IDEX Health & Science. Commenting on rule- breaking work in protein analysis with his laboratory team, Schriemer describes their methods as illuminating, “What I can do to improve detectability without restraining how I improve detectability.” He explains that conventional chromatography mandates the least possible interruption to the flow path between the column and the source of the mass spectrometer. Lewis adds, “We learned that through hard experience; however, in this case, our system allowed us to achieve better peak definition going into the mass spectrometer than we would have just by coupling the LC directly to the mass spec.”
