IonRocket thermal desorption for Direct Analysis In Real Time Mass Spectrometry (DART®-MS) removes sample prep for most samples. Powders, fragments, liquids, resins, and oils can all be directly placed in ionRocket, avoiding the need for Compatible solvents LC, GC, or...
BioChromato exhibited its Smart Evaporator at the American Chemical Society's National Meeting from March 31 to April 2 in Orlando, Florida. With the theme Evaporation Solutions, the objective was to help researchers solve common evaporation issues, such as bumping,...
Condensing and evaporating samples is a very necessary part of many chemical testing protocols. Samples need to be recovered after screening from their subsequent solvents. Many methods have been created to expedite this process and Biochromato has created an...
Evaporation is an integral part of chemistry research and the de facto instrument is the Rotary Evaporator, also referred to as Rotovap. As much as they are commonly used for concentrating solvents, they also have a reputation for issues that include bumping and...
Though evaporating DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) and DMF (Dimethylformamide) in organic synthesis and analytical chemistry may be dreaded and have even become a lost cause for others, this article outlines a way to remove these difficult solvents quickly and easily with the invention of new evaporation technology.
When selecting a solvent for running Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) analysis, typically a deuterated solvent is used in order to minimize background signals and provide a lock signal to compensate for drifts in the magnetic field1. ...
Rapid screening protocol for taxonomic identification of rhino horns developed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
“Illegal trafficking in rhino horn threatens to reverse decades of rhino conservation work in Africa and Asia, driving rhinos to the brink of extinction in the wild.” -U.S. Fish & Wildlife Dr. Edgard Espinoza is the Laboratory Deputy Director at the National...
Removal of solvents is a common need in any organic chemistry lab and often times the major “bottleneck” in a synthetic workup, thereby slowing down production. Additionally, evaporation of solvent is required for recovery of samples analyzed by NMR...
We introduce a simple way to remove Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO). DMSO is used in organic synthesis as a reaction solvent as well as analytical chemistry for NMR analysis (DMSO-D6) due to its ability to dissolve many compounds that are difficult to dissolve otherwise....
BioChromato attended the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) in San Diego, CA, where we had analytical equipment on display, as well as our Smart Evaporator. In addition, we also had a number of poster presentations outlying applications of two innovative...
After we received the 42nd Invention Award in 2016, the Japan Society for the Advancement of Inventions recommended we apply for this award. They give this award to the people who develop superior technology. And who contribute to the development of the...
BioChromato continues its global influence by attending the Analytica conference in Munich. We met with researchers in academia and industry leaders in Europe, along with distribution partners throughout the region. We had our analytical instruments on display...
BioChromato was at the Pittcon Conference and Expo, where we had analytical equipment on display, as well as our Smart Evaporator C10. In addition, we also had a poster presentation explaining our development of two innovative devices for DART-MS systems called...
BioChromato had a poster session at the American Academy of Forensic Scientists in Seattle, Washington, where we presented the use of our ionRocket device in the forensic laboratory setting. The ionRocket is a thermal desorption and pyrolysis device for use...
BioChromato was at the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) in San diego. There, we met with various manufacturers working with autosamplers, liquid handling systems, and other laboratory automation devices. These key industry leaders were...
BioChromato visited the Mass Spectrometry Applications to the Clinical Lab (MSACL) meeting in Palm Springs. There, we met with researchers and manufacturers working in the field of mass spectrometry in the clinical setting. Researchers and companies in the field of...
BioChromato attended the Gulf Coast Conference in Houston, TX. In addition to our booth, we were honored to be awarded Best New Analytical Instrument for our innovative pyrolysis device called ionRocket, where we had it on display at the New Product Showcase....
