  • Press Release: Doping Detection Stays a Neck Ahead

    Whilst the eyes of the world may currently be focused on the Olympics, human sport is not the only area where drug testing is routinely carried out. Horse racing is a massive world-wide industry, and regular testing is essential to maintain its integrity. A new mass spectrometry method for detecting the erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA), peginesatide, in horse serum is described in an article published in EJMS—European Journal of Mass Spectrometry.

  • Press Release: Exploring the body using light

    There is an increasing demand by medical providers and their patients for diagnostic and monitoring tests which are rapid, inexpensive, non-invasive, are portable, do not require major infrastructure, are suitable for use with infants through to the elderly and require minimal technical training for the operating staff. Near infrared or NIR spectroscopy offers these advantages and is on the verge of entering everyday clinical use.
