“Breaking the Bottlenecks of Small Molecule Research Using the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap ID-X Mass Spectrometer”

Abstract for Dr. Peterman:

Small molecule research covers a very broad range of applications, but all have similar experimental objectives for identifying and characterizing the compounds of interest to evaluate the stated research objective. Similarly, all applications face bottlenecks associated with exhaustively sampling compounds of interest in the presence of the background matrix, efficiently isolating and fragmenting each compound to generate high-quality, product ion rich spectral ion trees, and confidently automating the data processing to significantly increase the conversion of unknown unknowns to knowns. This presentation will highlight the new workflows focused on small molecules with our new tribrid mass spectrometer. The workflow components enable complex methods to be easily created, employed in automated sequence analysis routines, and demonstrations of the data processing routines used for compound identification and structural elucidation, regardless of the user expertise.

Speaker 2:  Debadeep Bhattacharyya

Sr. Manager, Marketing, Clinical Research and Forensic Toxicology, Thermo Fisher

“Confident Quantitation – Addressing Today’s and Tomorrow’s Challenges”

Abstract for Dr. Bhattacharyya:

While quantitative analysis of critical analytes in different matrices has been around for several years now, the growing complications in types of analytes and complexities of matrices continue to pose challenges to every analytical scientist focused on developing quantitative workflows. This presentation will highlight the benefits of a comprehensive workflows focused on targeted quantitation with our new generation Triple Quadrupole MS platforms. These workflows enable development of robust, reliable, reproducible, quantitative workflows for every molecule type, in every matrix regardless of the user expertise.
