Mobile Mass Spectrometry: Taking the Laboratory to the Field – Featuring Research by the University of Sheffield
In this webinar, Heather Walker from Sheffield University’s plant production and protection team explains how taking a compact mass spectrometer from the lab to the field helped optimise the team’s research.
The webinar highlights the advantages of mobile mass spectrometry, and introduces a mobile mass spec vehicle that has been outfitted to optimise time in the field without sacrificing results for real-time decision making about sampling.
During this webinar you will learn:
- about fast and easy sample techniques available with compact mass spectrometry, including direct probe for liquids and solids, and a volatile headspace analysis tool – both with no sample preparation required
- how instant data can be obtained to provide real-time decision making, allowing for smaller sample sizes to optimise reproducibility – without the need to oversample with the intent of bringing samples for off-site lab testing
- how the metabolic profile of wheat can be measured via compact mass spectrometry, highlighting the success of the technology in the food and ingredients testing industry
This webinar is brought in association with Advion and will feature presentations from Advion’s scientific founder Jack Henion and Sheffield University’s Heather Walker. This webinar was hosted by Chemistry World and recorded on October 25, 2018.
