Stay in the fast lane with Progenesis at ASMS 500, Indianapolis, 2017

The ASMS 2017 meeting follows the Indianapolis 500 – if you’re there, maybe you can still smell the burning rubber in the air. Comparisons can be drawn between the intense Indy 500 race and the jam-packed annual ASMS meeting… instead of IndyCars battling through the pack to secure their winnings, scientists race between the convention […]

Stop looking, Start seeing

We are heading into the busy conference season and it’s an especially exciting time for the Waters and Nonlinear teams as we get ready to showcase complete biomarker discovery workflows based around our new data independent acquisition mode SONAR™. After a launch at HUPO last year we have completed work on data processing compatibility with […]

Do you only check data quality when something has gone wrong?

Generating proteomics data from an LC-MS platform is by no-means inexpensive, a great deal of time is invested into preparing samples, preparing the columns and optimizing the mass spec conditions to generate this complex and rich data. With so many parameters that can and do go wrong, can you really afford to throw your data […]

ProteoMMX 3.0 – Proteomics gets the royal treatment

Last week, I attended my first conference for Nonlinear Dynamics – ProteoMMX 3.0, held in Chester at the Queen Hotel, a venue chosen for, in the words of conference organiser Rob Beynon, “its quirkiness” – a characteristic it certainly lived up to. 🙂 “New data compression algorithm too powerful for public release” The meeting was […]

Sun, saunas and science – the 2014 Nordic Proteomics Conference

For those who don’t know, Finland has historic ties with Sweden and Russia which explains Turku’s two names: Turku, the Finnish name and Åbo the Swedish name of the same city. The weather was unexpectedly […]

5 sample running problems highlighted by ion intensity maps

A typical LC-MS run, viewed as an ion intensity map (click to enlarge). “What is an ion intensity map?” I hear you ask. At least, if you’re new to Progenesis QI, that may be your first question. The ion intensity map (or “ion map” for short) that’s used in Progenesis is what many first-time users […]
