Automated Determination of Fatty Acid Methyl Esters using a Method developed by PAL Method Composer
An efficient method for the generation and GC-analysis of FAME was generated using PAL Method Composer ver. 1.4. PAL Method Composer allows to rapidly generate methods by simple drag & drop operations.
New Biopharmaceuticals: Bispecific Antibody Clone Selection
Herein, we describe the development of a new high-throughput approach based on the newly introduced SampleStream Platform for performing clone selection screening, enabling selection of clones that produce the highest amount and quality of the correctly assembled bispecific antibody.

Characterization of the New PAL Micro-SPE Cartridge for Pesticides Extract Clean-up
Since more than ten years micro-SPE (µSPE) emerged as a micromethod for sample preparation and clean-up in food safety, proteomics, forensic, environmental and analysis. Applications are wide-ranging and cover drugs, environmental contaminants, and, in particular, the QuEChERS extract cleanup in multiresidue pesticide analysis. The automation of the µSPE sample preparation steps led to the desired increase in sample throughput, unification of the used sorbent materials for food commodities, and the potential for the online hyphenation with GC-MS and LC-MS instrumentation.
Untargeted 2DxLC-Mass Spectrometry using SWATH-DIA-Based Workflow for the Characterization of Lipid Profiles in Plasma Samples
The use of lipidomic analyses based on LC-mass spectrometry has become widespread due to its sensitivity and specificity which provides a broader picture of lipid profiles in biofluids. In this work, we combined an automated sample extraction and a two-dimensional liquid chromatography (2DxLC) system with HILIC-based class separation followed by an orthogonal reverse-phase chromatography with an untargeted SWATH-DIA workflow to accurately annotate phosphatidylcholines (PC), lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) and etherphosphatidylcholines (PC O-) in human plasma samples.
Advantages of automated and miniaturized µ-SPE clean-up in pesticides residues analysis
Recent developments in pesticides analysis extend the well-established methods to higher productivity and reliability while minimizing consumption and exposition to harmful chemicals. A workflow was developed that allows automatic preparation of calibration standards, automatic sample dilution, and automatic clean-up of sample extracts on one instrument, showing that miniaturized automated solutions are reducing errors, improving analytical consistency and protecting the environment in one convenient approach.
