2021 TechTalks: Series One

Liquid chromatography (LC) and mass spectrometry (MS) are common tools used in the day-to-day work of analytical scientists. The data provided by these techniques is of tremendous value across multiple application areas.

In this ongoing series, we will speak to Waters scientists about some of the LC and MS technologies used today, discussing what they are, how they work and how they have been applied to solve critical application challenges. We invite you to join us!

Talk 1 | June 3, 2021 | 1:00PM - 2:00PM EDT

Desorption Electrospray Ionization (DESI)

Desorption Electrospray Ionization (DESI) is a state-of-the-art technique that allows chemical information to be obtained directly from a wide range of surfaces. DESI imaging provides information on the spatial distribution of molecules at or near the surface. DESI provides beautiful and information-rich images that allow scientists to answer the fundamental question: "Where is this component in my sample?". In this TechTalk, we’ll discuss the technique and its applications with Anthony Midey, Ph.D., a Principal Applications Support Scientist in Waters Biomedical Research group at Americas Application Laboratory. 

Talk 2 | July 1, 2021 | 1:00PM - 2:00PM EDT

?PLC: An Exploration of LC Terminology

There are a number of chromatographic techniques used in modern analytical science today – HPLC, UHPLC, UPLC and convergence chromatography to name a few. In this TechTalk, we’ll look at what differentiates these techniques, when one technique is preferrable over another and touch on the future of LC systems. Our guest will be Denise Heyburn, Tech Support Specialist for Pennsylvania.

Talk 3 | July 22, 2021 | 1:00PM - 2:00PM EDT

Tandem Quadrupole MS – When is Two Better than One?

Quadrupole mass spectrometry is a common technique in many analytical laboratories but analysts may need to choose between a single quadrupole system and a tandem quadrupole system to meet their analytical needs. We’ll look at the difference between single and tandem quadrupole systems and how that difference affects the data that can be acquired. We’ll discuss this topic with Stuart Oehrle, Senior Field Chemist for the Great Lakes Region.
