SCIEX, Phenomenex and Peak Scientific are taking their laboratory solutions across Europe in a mobile laboratory, providing "open house" opportunities on the European MASStastic Voyage Tour for anyone interested in using mass spectrometry and separation science to solve analytical challenges. Next week this state-of-the-art LC/MS/MS laboratory-on-wheels will be open to visitors outside the site of the EBF Conference, a gathering of pharmaceutical scientists in Barcelona. The tour will make stops in cities across Europe in the new year, including a special appearance at the Berliner Symposium of mass spectrometry users in Germany on April 9, 2013.
Experts in LC/MS/MS solutions from SCIEX, Phenomenex and Peak Scientific are on board the mobile laboratory, available to talk to scientists and lab technicians from industry and academia about a broad array of topics, including drug discovery & development, environmental analysis, and small molecule and peptide quantitation.
Changes in European regulations, along with demands for faster, more accurate results and the emergence of next-generation technologies, are spurring questions about how analytical labs can keep up with the rapid pace of change. Q&A sessions on board the European MASStastic Voyage are designed to help answer these questions, along with showing fully-functional mass spectrometry equipment in operation.
"Because of the sweeping changes happening in Europe, the interest in advanced LC/MS/MS solutions is expanding quickly across the continent, but not everyone can come to an SCIEX event or a major trade show, so we are taking a next-generation lab to them with our European MASStastic Voyage," said Fedja Bobanovic, Vice President of EMEA Sales & Support, SCIEX. "We will be able to show demos, run samples, talk about the data in depth and give scientists and applied market lab personnel useful tips on how to improve their analyses."
On board the MASStastic Voyage mobile lab will be recently released laboratory technologies designed specifically for a number of laboratory applications commonly used in European laboratories. This MASStastic Voyage Tour will crisscross Europe during the first half of 2013.
"The European MASStastic Voyage mobile lab tour became a reality because of the overwhelming positive and enthusiastic response from analytical scientists from a similar tour throughout North America earlier this year," said Michael McGinley, Phenomenex HPLC Product Manager. "The mass spectrometry expertise of SCIEX along with the separation science expertise of Phenomenex has proved to be a potent combination for solving the most urgent and challenging analytical needs of scientists everywhere. This mobile laboratory allows users to see the latest advances in technology and integrated solutions right at their doorstep."
