The Webinar focuses on a growing interest of LC-tandem MS in clinical laboratories, and will broadcast live June 30, 2015

Joseph Di Bussolo, PhD - Senior Applications Scientist, Thermo Fisher Scientific

There is a growing interest of LC-tandem MS in clinical laboratories because this analytical technique can provide definitive identification and quantitation of target compounds using chromatographic separations and specific transitions of tandem MS from precursor ions to product ions. Users can use LC-tandem MS to develop their own tests, use smaller amounts of samples, and measure several analytes in a single run.

Thermo Fisher Scientific announces a new educational webinar highlighting the use of LC-tandem MS for Clinical Lab Supervisors, Clinical Scientists, Hospital Administrators, Reference Lab Managers, and anyone interested in lab-developed tests using LC-tandem mass spectrometry . The webinar is titled “Simplify Routine Workflows – Using LC-tandem MS for General Clinical Use,” featuring Dr. Joseph Di Bussolo, PhD, Senior Applications Scientist, Thermo Fisher Scientific. The webinar will be presented live June 30, 2015 at 11:00AM PT.

The webinar will describe how labs can use LC-tandem MS to simplify laboratory workflows, improve time-efficiency, increase utilization of the mass spec, and streamline data processing and record keeping. Various example compounds and workflows will be used to demonstrate 1) multiple channel HPLC (two or four channels) with or without (dilute and shoot) online sample cleanup 2) tandem MS for identification of multiple compounds in a single analytical run 3) data processing software designed to streamline laboratory workflows with built-in flexibility for assigning roles and responsibilities with an audit trail function to help ensure integrity of results.

Key Learning Objectives include:

  • LC-tandem MS for identification and quantitation of target compounds in one analytical run
  • Multiple channel HPLC with or without online sample cleanup
  • Streamline laboratory workflows using data processing software
  • Software with three permission levels (technicians, supervisors, and directors) and an audit trail function to help ensure integrity of results

Joe Di Bussolo earned his Ph.D. degree in biological sciences from Drexel University in Philadelphia. For most of the 20 years that followed, Dr. Di Bussolo helped develop and supported various analytical instruments and software products for the PerkinElmer Corporation. In 2002, Joe joined Cohesive Technologies as an applications scientist. Cohesive was acquired in 2007 by Thermo Fisher Scientific and Joe currently works under the Thermo umbrella as a senior scientist training and collaborating with customers and managing the Applications Laboratory at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. He is also an honorary faculty member and advisor in the University's Pharmaceutical Product Development program.
