Remote Assist Services

November 25, 2020

Recently we introduced a few new Remote Assisted Services. What we learned so far, is that the participating customers highly appreciate the remote sessions. For us this is an unexpected side effect, which encouraged us to develop a few more.

By doing the actual work, users are more involved in the session thus gaining a deeper understanding of the instruments.

More details and downloads are on our website.

Updated Playlist with ROXY music!

August 5, 2020

Have a look at our ‘playlist’ of work that was done with our ROXY Reactors for EC/MS. The list includes the compounds, type of reactor/electrode, and mode of analysis. Each publication has a dynamic internet link for convenient retrieval.

A good literature reference describing a new approach may trigger new ideas for your customers. Feel free to download & share!

SenCell or FlexCell?

August 5, 2020

Isn’t it amazing how studying the brain neurotransmitters of the tiny fruit fly – Drosophila melanogaster – helps to understand how things work in mamals? Clearly, size does not matter … in this case!

Recently, we published a method for analysis of Octopamine, Tyramine, Tyrosine and Tryptophan – click to download.

Histamine – neurotransmitter and fresh fish

July 14, 2020

Histamine is one of those substances with a multitude of functions in the body. Probably the most annoying is its capability to trigger an immune response followed by itching or hay fever and such. As a neurotransmitter it plays a role to control the sleep-wake cycle.

It also plays a role in a totally different field, in fish products. Histamine levels rise with insufficient cooling or poor hygiene. It says something about freshness and fish quality for consumption.

Recently, we published a method for analysis of Histamine using our in-needle OPA derivatization – click to download.

LNAAs – How Food controls the Brain

July 14, 2020

Did you know that behavior can be affected by the food we eat? In agriculture this has been known for quite some time. By adding certain amino acids to animal food it has been shown that animals have less stress and aggression.

Recently, we published a method for analysis of LNAAs – Large Neutral Amino Acids including  Tryptophan, Tyrosine, and Phenylalanine – that play a key role in this. Click to download.

New FlexCell meets USP/EP requirement

June 16, 2020

We have recently developed a new FlexCell with Stainless Steel Auxiliary electrode especially for USP and EP methods. It combines the flexibility of an exchangeable gold working electrode with the USP/EP requirement for stainless steel AUX. The maintenance free & pH inert HyREF works very well for aminoglycosides or other carbo’s that are analyzed under alkaline conditions.

  • 102.4325EP  –  FlexCell Au HyREF, SS AUX

Below the new FlexCell (left). For more details see our web page.

What Chromeleon license is needed?

June 16, 2020

We have some background information about the Antec ECD driver for Chromeleon™ CDS from Thermo Fisher Scientific and the Chromeleon “Class 3” license requirement.

Currently, several flavors of Chromeleon are available. First there is a choice between Workstation (standalone PC) or Enterprise (multi-PC Network) license. Then there are Class 1, 2 and 3 licenses:

  • Class 1: all Thermo Fisher Scientific instruments
  • Class 2: third party GC’s
  • Class 3: third  party LC’s

A Class 3 license automatically covers all Class 1 devices as well. Check what version of Chromeleon is being used. In case of class 1, contact Thermo Fisher Scientific as it should be upgraded to Class 3 to be able to work with an Antec ECD.

For more details and driver downloads see our web page.

Checklist for Antec users

June 16, 2020

We created two checklists for Antec users to keep track of the daily maintenance and checks in HPLC/ECD. Particularly useful in troubleshooting are the daily entries for key parameters such as I-cell, pressure reading and the system suitability result.

We have a checklist for ALEXYS Analyzers, and one for 3rd party HPLC with Antec ECD which has less detail on pump and autosampler.

  • 180_0029_01 – ALEXYS operator checklist
  • 171_0029_01 – HPLC/ECD operator checklist

For downloading the checklists see our web page.
