The process of method development for a diagnostic assay based on liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) involves several disparate technologies and specialties. Additionally, method development details are typically not disclosed in journal publications. Method developers may need to search widely for pertinent information on th...
X-ray nanotomography is an imaging technique used to study three-dimensional structures at submicrometer length scale. The samples to be studied should be only 10s of micrometers in diameter, and ideally cylindrical. Focused ion beam milling is the most common technique used to prepare samples for nanotomography experiments, and the current techn...
In today’s world, we’ve invented many new technologies that have allowed us to map out the earth’s surface but just as we can map out surfaces in a large scale, we can also map out surfaces in a very small scale such as in nanometers. Thus, giving us opportunities to study & discover various materials such as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) crystalline...
Efficient protein solubilization using detergents is required for in-depth proteome analysis, but successful LC-MS/MS analysis greatly depends on proper detergents removal. A commonly used sample processing method is the filter-aided sample preparation (FASP), which allows protein digestion and detergent removal on the same filtration device. Many ...

Fabric phase sorptive extraction (FPSE), a recently introduced novel sample preparation technology, has been evaluated for the extraction of benzodiazepines from human blood serum. FPSE utilizes a flexible fabric surface as the substrate platform for creating sol-gel hybrid organic-inorganic sorbent coatings. FPSE media can be introduced directly i...

A novel sampling device based on the partition of target analytes to the extraction medium was developed for the determination of sesquiterpenes in air samples. The extraction medium was prepared by the chemical derivatization of a specially prepared macroporous silica, with a specific surface area of 2.0 m2 /g. Taking advantage of the sample extra...

Metallic alloy nanoparticles (NPs) are synthesized in situ in an environmental transmission electron microscope. Atomic level characterization of the formed alloy NPs is carried out at synthesis conditions by use of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, electron diffraction and electron energy-loss spectroscopy.

Acetylcholine is an essential neurotransmitter found throughout the nervous system. Its action on postsynaptic receptors is regulated through hydrolysis by various carboxylesterases, especially cholinesterases (ChEs). The acute toxicity of organophosphate (OP) compounds is directly linked to their action as inhibitors of ChE. One widely used assay ...
