The huge amount of data that can be generated by the latest scientific instruments could lead to important scientific discoveries, but only if scientists can efficiently process that data. A recent European project called Computis, has come up with a range of new tools for efficiently processing mass spectrometry imaging data.

Deadline near for 2015 Goetz Instrument Support Programme

PANalytical Boulder is accepting submissions for the 2015 Alexander Goetz Instrument Support Program and the deadline for submissions is 15 October 2014.

Selected students pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree with innovating research proposals will be awarded a FieldSpec® 4 Standard-Res spectroradiometer or a FieldSpec HandHeld 2 spectroradiometer for a specified period of time. The spectroradiometers can be used by the students for a wide range of field research applications such as image interpretation, ground truthing, materials classification and ecological impact analyses.
