Determining the chemical structure for the majority of compounds "identified" in a typical untargeted analysis remains a stubborn challenge and a persistent logjam, holding up progress in many fields including metabolomics, metabolism studies, forensics, contaminant analysis, and E&L identification. In this webinar, we will describe a fundamental new approach to untargeted small molecule analysis involving optimized mass spectrometers, powerful new data acquisition strategies, and an arsenal of new software tools to translate high quality Orbitrap mass spectra into more, confidently-assigned small molecule structures.
Join us for this free educational webinar where we discuss Addressing the "Identity Crisis" in Small Molecule Compound Identification

Tim Stratton, Manager of Library Technologies, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Graduate of the University of Minnesota. Started my career as an analyst in pharma working in regulated analysis, quality control, method validation, etc. for many years with Solvay Pharmaceuticals. Migrated into pharma research when I moved to Abbott Laboratories working in drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics in all aspects from early high throughput screening to post market phase 4 studies. My work in research extended for almost 10 years and included working for both large and small pharma companies. My specific area of focus was structure elucidation and fragmentation interpretation and it’s still an area I really enjoy. I joined Thermo Fisher almost ten years ago working in the Pharma vertical marketing group, mainly because they promised I could play with the latest toys before they were available. Since then I’ve been involved in hardware and software testing and development as well as working directly with customers for support and to better understand their needs. The past few years I’ve transitioned to focus more on the construction of high resolution accurate mass MS/MS and MSn spectral libraries to help with identification of unknowns across all areas of research and this continues to be the main area of focus for me.
