Be selective – rise above the noise

Life can be noisy. So can science. You need to be selective and focus on sources of information that are accurate and enlightening so that you can make good decisions to advance your research and organizational goals.

Attend our annual Mass Spec Users’ Meetings to hear how we have extended the selectivity of our instruments and software to help you:

  • Reduce ambiguity
  • Improve your quantitative accuracy and precision
  • More confidently profile and classify your complex samples
  • Correctly identify more metabolites, impurities, or contaminants

Don’t miss this day of lively, informative presentations by experts from diverse fields, hear about exciting new products that can help you achieve greater productivity, and network with your peers.

Protein Analysis Made Simple

Proteins are complicated, so chromatography solutions should be simple. Join us to learn how you can gain a better understanding of both the nature and quality of proteins, glycans, charge variants and more!

Selecting the right workflow solutions can be the difference between understanding effective and ineffective functional compounds. From digestion to characterization, let us show you real collaborative examples of how LC and LC-MS laboratory applications can make working with large and complex structures easier.
