Why Limit Your Analysis with MS/MS?

June 6, 2018

In your application work, you need the power to analyze even the most complex samples. MS/MS can restrict your analysis due to its targeted nature, giving you “tunnel vision” and causing you to potentially miss key analytes. Our Pegasus BT 4D is the solution to coelution. You won’t limit your analysis with GCxGC-TOFMS as it provides the complete picture while also transforming your lab’s productivity. You’ll save time, improve your sample throughput, and increase confidence in your analyte identification, without missing a thing.

GC×GC-(HR)TOFMS:
A Key Player in Your Tool Box for Medical Applications
Presented by Jean-François Focant, University of Liege

GC×GC-(HR)TOFMS has reached maturity and can now be used to solve routine complex separation science issues. This is particularly true for several medical applications that require non-targeted screening of biological markers of interest either for population screening or better understanding of specific biological pathways. However, this increase of analytical resolution comes with an increase of system and data complexity, creating a critical need for adequate method optimization and quality control (QC) protocols. Learn more at our seminar, where examples of the use of thermal desorption (TD) and solid-phase microextraction (SPME) GC×GC-(HR)TOFMS will be highlighted in the field of respiratory diseases.

Investigating Cannabis with GCxGC-TOFMS

April 23, 2018

Cannabis, and its use for medical or recreational purposes, has been a hot topic in both the political and social realms in recent years. From a medical standpoint, these chemicals may help treat a number of illness and symptoms, such as chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, anxiety, and cancer through ingestion, inhalation, or topical application. Cannabis is a complex mixture made up specifically of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other chemicals related to delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The relationship between terpenes and cannabinoids, and how they work together to create a therapeutic experience is termed the “Entourage Effect”.

Analyzing the total composition of cannabis is an important aspect of determining its potency and medical effectiveness. The terpenes in its chemical makeup are what give cannabis its aromatic and flavor profile, and as True Terpenes describes, “It is the terpenes in cannabis which modulate (modify or control) the effect that the cannabinoids in each sample will have on the user, this is why strains of cannabis effect each user uniquely. For example, if you have 2 different types of cannabis and both have 15% THC, but one gives you energetic effects and one gives you sedative effects, this is largely due to the different terpene profiles.” Therefore, better understanding the chemical framework of cannabis can aid in determining how certain strains may work.
