A radio-frequency-free simple to make retrofittable liquid chromatography compatible hybrid ECD/CID cell for mass spectrometry analysis
Technology Description Most commercial tandem mass spectrometers analyze proteins through collision-induced dissociation (CID) for the fragmentation stage. While practical and robust, CID has low interpretation efficiency. This technology describes a novel way of protein analysis by coupling a thermionic electron source and electron-capture-dissoci...

Ultra-sensitive Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering Substrates Patterned by Diatom Frustules
Background of Invention Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) has been widely investigated as an analytical tool for detecting various biological and chemical molecules with single molecular sensitivity due to the strong electric fields induced by plasmonic resonances. Even though an enhancement factors as large as 1014 has been reported by co...
