Mass Spec

News on mass spectrometry technology and applications in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

The platform combines Leica's laser microdissection tool and PBI's pressure cycling tech to enable better extraction and digestion of proteins from biopsies.

The work suggests mass spec can more accurately assess levels of immunotherapy targets like PD-L1 than conventional clinical approaches.

The researchers covered 100 organisms from a wide range of taxonomies, allowing for large-scale cross comparisons of species at the protein level.

While there were a few new mass spectrometry instrument introductions, vendors focused primarily on software and sample separation advances.

Researchers used a high-throughput proteomic platform to find patterns of protein expression that could identify patients at risk of developing severe infections.

The Washington Post reports on researchers' efforts to determine the effect of an increasingly common SARS-CoV-2 mutation.

Florida Politics reports Florida's law barring life, long-term care, and disability insurers from using genetic information in coverage decisions went into effect at the beginning of July.

A new analysis finds a link between popular media coverage of a scientific study and how often that paper is cited.
