American Journal of Microbiological Research, Separation Methods TechnologiesDisease incidence and prevalence is increasing in developing countries leading to high mortality and morbidity rates. Since most of the developing countries rely on traditional plant based medicine, there is huge demand for identifying the bioactive compounds from plant origin with medicinal properties owing to their safety, availability and reduced side effects. This project focuses on extraction of two different phytochemicals from Eucalyptus Spp and Withania Somnifera…HPLC analysis was carried out on a LC-20AT system (Shimadzu, Japan) using a reverse-phase C18 column [OD-5-100/25] (4.6 mm x 250 mm; Separation Methods Technologies)…READ MORE HERE

Nature Methods, Volume 14 Separation Methods TechnologiesTop-down proteomics, the analysis of intact proteins in their endogenous form, preserves valuable information about post-translation modifications, isoforms and proteolytic processing. The quality of top-down liquid chromatography–tandem MSMS (LCLC-MSMS/MSMS) data sets is rapidly increasing on account of advances in instrumentation and sample-processing protocols. However, top-down mass spectra are substantially more complex than conventional bottom-up data…The analytical column was prepared in house by slurry packing 3 μm diameter C2 [BMEB C2] stationary phase (Separation Methods Technology, Newark, Delaware) into a 50 cm length of 360 μm o.d. × 100 μm i.d. fused silica capillary column…READ MORE HERE

Chloride (Cl), chlorite (ClO2) and chlorate (ClO3) are anions commonly found in swimming pool and drinking water due to treatment with different processes for suppression of bacteria, usually through chlorination. Unfortunately, these anions have potential negative health implications and as such, it is crucial to monitor their levels.
