LC/MS/MS Method Package for D/L Amino Acids
For LabSolutions™ LCMS Software
Most important amino acids exist as stereoisomers. D- and L- forms of mirror image isomers, or enantiomers, are named according to their activity on polarized light. By using CROWNPAK CR-I(+) and CR-I(-) columns with chiral stationary phases, the D- and L-forms of amino acids can be analyzed separately. With CR-I(+) elution order is from D- to L-, and with CR-I(-) the elution order is reversed.
In Just Ten Minutes, Chiral Amino Acids Can Be Analyzed Simultaneously
With conventional chiral amino acid analysis, it is necessary to perform derivatization or use very long run times. With this method package, derivatization is not necessary, and high-sensitivity analysis can be performed in a short period of time, bringing efficiency to the chiral separations laboratory.
All D/L Amino Acids Can Be Quantified by Column Switching
The physicochemical properties of Glutamine and Lysine, Isoleucine and allo-Isoleucine, Threonine and allo-Threonine are extremely similar. They have virtually the same MS/MS fragmentation patterns, and share many of their MRM transitions. Chromatographic separation is therefore required to analyze them individually by LC-MS/MS. Even if there is coelution on the CR-I(+) column, confirmation can be made by automated switching to a secondary CR-I(-) column.

1. DL-Proline is a secondary amine, so it cannot be separated with these analysis conditions.
2. LabSolutions LCMS Ver. 5.86 or later is required.
The analysis method of this method package was developed based on the reserach of the Fukusaki Lab, Division of Science and Biotechnology, Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka University.

Life Science Biomarker Industry Page has been updated
Biomarkers are derived from living organisms and found in tissues, blood, and other bodily fluids. Biomarkers are indicators of biological changes in an organism and are used to diagnose disease, in prognosis, and to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pharmaceuticals. Biomarkers can be nucleic acids, proteins, peptides, lipids, and sugars, and are identified using various “omics” techniques.
Life Science Proteomics Industry Page has been updated
Proteomics is an academic discipline involving the comprehensive study of protein structure and function, typically by mass spectrometry and electrophoresis. Unlike the genome, the cells of an organism do not all contain the same complement of proteins, but different cells contain different proteins at different times. Proteomics uses this phenomenon to enable more efficient drug development and to determine the mechanisms of disease.
Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.
Handbook of Analysis Procedures for EPA method 533, EPA method 537.1 are now available.
The validity of the analysis performed by each laboratory needs to be confirmed by Quality Control (QC). This article section shows the general analytical procedure for fulfilling QC requirements. Note that the procedure could be modified depending on the situation in the lab and analysts.
Shimadzu has released the CLAM-2040, Fully Automated Sample Preparation Module for LCMS
The CLAM-2040 accompanies you on most of the analytical workflow and improves your overall throughput by drastically reducing the sample preparation time. Simply place the blood tubes in position and the CLAM-2040 performs the next steps automatically, from sample extraction, up to the LCMS analysis and data processing.
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of persistent and harmful chemicals that can be commonly found in the environment globally. These anthropogenic chemicals can come from various sources such as manufacturing, industrial applications, food contact materials and consumer products, and eventually end up and accumulate in the water, soil and living organisms.
