  • Advances in Bromine Speciation by HPLC/ICP-MS

    Bromine is a natural component found in waters, most commonly as the bromide ion, Br-. A common procedure for purifying drinking waters is treatment with ozone to kill bacteria. A byproduct of ozonolysis is the conversion of bromide to bromate (BrO3-), a known carcinogen. Therefore, a need exists to measure both bromide and bromate in drinking waters, as opposed to total bromine content. Our ...

  • Application of a GPC-LC-MS/MS method for the determination of 31 mycotoxins in edible oils

    Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) is widely used for sample clean up in mycotoxin analysis. The most commonly described methods use GPC columns packed with SX-3 BioBeads suitable for cleaning Zearalenone, Aflatoxins and Trichothesenes from edible oils and fatty matrices. Separation of Fumonisins from the oil fraction are inadequate with this column. The new GPC column designed by LCTech shows ...

  • A Simple and Ultra-Sensitive LC/MS/MS Method for Analysis of N-Methyl Carbamates in Water

    IntroductionN-methyl carbamate pesticides are widely used due to their broad range of activity. Water sources can be polluted bycarbamates through surface water runoff from areas such as agriculture fields, golf courses, and residential properties.Human and animal studies have suggested that long-term, low-level exposure to carbamates can cause adverse healtheffects, including ...


  • LC/MS/MS analysis of metabolites of synthetic Cannabinoids JWH-018 and JWH-073 in Urine

    Abstract A liquid chromatographic method was developed to resolve a comprehensive set of metabolites of JWH-018 and JWH-073. In addition to the chromatographic analysis method, an extraction method was developed to recover a broad range of synthetic cannabinoid metabolites, including carboxylic acid metabolites that are not traditionally recovered using a high pH liquid/liquid extraction. ...
