Researchers from WaterMine, SCIEX, Bedrock Scientific, and the University of Waterloo have collaborated to demonstrate how dynamic ion-solvent clustering can confer additional stability to peptides in differential ion mobility and mass spectrometry environments. The formation of solvent vapor "air bags" protects ions against collision-induced dissociation.

Separating and characterizing chiral isomers with DMS

Researchers from WaterMine, Bedrock Scientific, SCIEX, and the University of Waterloo demonstrate the use of differential ion mobility to separate chirals isomers of amphetamine and methamphetamine. The separation and analysis of chiral compounds, especially enantiomers, presents a great challenge to modern analytical chemistry, particularly to mass spectrometry. Our new methodology enables separation and characterization in less than 90 seconds!
