Dr. Richard Yost Will Discuss Ion Mobility and Mass Spectrometry for Metabolomics and Clinical Research Analysis in Educational Webinar

Share Article

In this webinar, which LabRoots will host April 30, attendees will gain a better understanding of how in mobility/mass spectrometry can be used for clinical research analysis and metabolomics.

Richard A Yost, Colonel Allen R. and Margaret G. Crow Professor and Head, Analytical Chemistry, University of Florida; Director, NIH Southeast Center for Integrated Metabolomics

Ion mobility/mass spectrometry has tremendous potential for metabolomics, lipidomics, and clinical research analysis. Ion mobility can resolve compounds unresolved by LC/MS/MS, provide additional structural information not available from mass spectrometry, and reduce or eliminate the need for chromatographic separation. These features offer significant improvements for quantitative targeted metabolomics and clinical research analysis, as well as for untargeted (global) metabolomics studies.

In this webinar, which is sponsored by Agilent, participants will learn how ion mobility is combined with mass spectrometry. This presentation will explore innovations in ion mobility/mass spectrometry for metabolomics, lipidomics, and clinical research analysis. Techniques to be covered include both classic drift tube ion mobility (IMS) and high‐field asymmetric‐waveform ion mobility (FAIMS), in conjunction with HRMS, MS/MS, and LC/MS.

Characterization and optimization of instrumental parameters critical for analytical performance will be explored, including ionization techniques, cationization and complexation of analytes for improved mobility separation, and integration with chromatographic separation and MS/MS.

The speaker for this event will be Dr. Richard Yost, a Colonel Allen R. and Margaret G. Crow Professor and Head of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Florida.

Along with his teaching duties, Yost is the director of the NIH‐funded Southeast Center for Integrated Metabolomics. He is also a Professor of Pathology at the University of Florida. Yost's professional activities have focused on research and teaching in analytical mass spectrometry, particularly tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS). His group's research has reflected a unique balance between instrumentation development, fundamental studies, and applications in analytical chemistry.

LabRoots will host this webinar April 30, 2018, beginning at 8:00 a.m. PDT, 11:00A a.m. EDT. To learn more about this event, the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
