Shimadzu Presents the Best Triple Quadrupole GCMS So Far

Shimadzu introduced last week the GCMS-TQ8040: the most accurate, cost-effective and easy to use triple quadrupole GCMS ever. The new device improves throughput and operability aspect of its predecessor, GCMS-TQ8030 while conserving the ppt (1 trillionth) level sensitivity. This equipment, designed primarily for the clinical, food safety and environmental applications features a pesticide database with […]

Researchers Miniaturize Mass Spectrometer with Carbon Nanotube Coating

A team of researchers from Purdue University and the Indian Institute of Technology – Madras (IIT-M) led by R. Graham Cooks and Thalappil Pradeep have developed a carbon nanotube coating to shrink mass spectrometers. The researchers discovered that a carbon nanotube-coated paper used to collect a sample was not only able to reduce the required […]
