Join Advion at the 256th ACS National Fall Conference in Boston, Booth #1908

Join us on the expo floor August 19-21 in Boston, MA for the annual Fall American Chemical Society conference. Here you will have many opportunities to learn about Advion’s suite of mass spec products and novel sample techniques.  Please stop by booth #1908 to learn more about Advion’s full array of MS tools for chemists.

This year, we are hosting a workshop titled, “Mobile Mass Spectrometry: Taking the laboratory to the Field” featuring Dr. Heather Walker of the University of Sheffield Plant Production and Protection team.
Date/Time/Location: Tuesday, August 21, 9:30-10:30a – Room 1 on the Conference Floor
Description: When instant mass analysis became paramount to the Sheffield University Plant Production and Protection (P3) team, they took the laboratory directly to the field utilizing the expression Compact Mass Spectrometer from Advion. The system provides direct sample analysis of liquids, solids and powders and provides mass spectral information within seconds. This enabled the Sheffield team to obtain rapid detection of metabolite markers in plant samples within the field environment, rather than waiting days for results from the lab.

This workshop features the research led by Professor Mike Burrell and Dr. Heather Walker, highlighting how they turned their SUV into a mobile mass spec unit, capable of screening the fields to obtain rapid metabolite analysis of several different varieties of wheat.

“The utilization of this equipment is of huge benefit as it allows the knowledge that we have gained in the laboratory to be transferred and monitored quickly and easily in the field,” said Dr. Walker. “Using this technology can provide higher detail data on crops in the field than previously possible.
