The world's most powerful NMR spectrometer

...ul, high-resolution nuclear magnet resonance (NMR) spectrometer ever constructed was delivered today to The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI). According to Peter Wright, Ph.D., Chairman, Department of Molecular Biology, the new NMR, referred to by the frequency at which it operates, 900 MHz, will become the cent...

Small streams important in controlling nitrogen

... per sample. Peterson and colleagues used new mass spectrometer techniques to improve sensitivity and reduce the cost to less than $10. "Now we have a way to track nitrogen through a stream's biological systems," says Valett. "N15 allowed us to add nitrogen in such small amounts that it does not change the nitrog...

Stowaways from space provide link between impact, biggest extinction in Earth history

...in the Rare Gas Laboratory use a sophisticated gas spectrometer to measure different isotopes of elements like helium, argon, and xenon. The samples cited in the Science paper came from the Permian-Triassic (P/T) boundary in China, Japan, and Hungary. In 1996 Becker, Poreda and colleagues discovered that full...

...otope laboratory. The PRIME Lab's accelerator mass spectrometer will allow researchers to monitor bone loss in 50 days that otherwise would take two to four years, Weaver said. "For our osteoporosis study, for example, we'll be able to use just nine people and test them for seven different products in two years,"...

UF technique detects tiny, potentially harmful airborne particles

...sample produces a different wavelength of light. A spectrometer records these "fingerprints" and determines which elements are present, providing a real-time picture of the airborne particles. Hahn tested his technique over the Fourth of July holiday, measuring increased airborne concentrations of magnesium, a m...

Tiny sampling device promises big results for detection and analysis of chemicals

...h other micro chemical detectors, including a mass spectrometer or an ion mobility spectrometer. The tiny size will allow chemical testing using small hand-held instruments, eliminating the need to send samples to a large laboratory. This would be beneficial, for example, to a soldier in battle who needs to k...
