PharmaFluidics will be attending ASMS at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA, USA from 2 – 6 June, 2019.
The American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) was formed in 1969 to promote and disseminate knowledge of mass spectrometry and allied topics. Membership includes over 8,500 scientists involved in research and development. Members come from academic, industrial and governmental laboratories. Their interests include advancement of techniques and instrumentation in mass spectrometry, as well as fundamental research in chemistry, geology, forensics, biological sciences and physics.
ASMS sponsors the Annual Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics that is attended by more than 6,500 scientists. Approximately 3,000 papers are presented as posters and talks.
On Tuesday (04/06), Karl Mechtler will give a presentation about ‘Improved Sensitivity for Single Cell Proteomics Using micro-Chip Pillar Arrays‘ at 3:10 – 3:30 PM in auditorium, Bldg A.
Single-cell proteomics is a rapidly advancing field that aims comprehensively quantifying protein abundance levels from individual mammalian cells, complementary to single cell transcriptomics and genomics analyses. A single mammalian cell contains about 400pg of protein, which is 1000 times less than what is commonly used in proteomics analysis. Robust analysis of such very low input samples thus poses one of the key challenges to the current developments of new mass-spectrometry based proteomic workflows, including sample preparation techniques and LC-MS instrumentation.
Key learning objectives:
- Illustrating the benefits and separation performance of µPAC™ columns for the analysis of complex and limited biological samples.
- Demonstrating record protein and peptide identifications data using µPAC™ chromatography for single cell proteomics.
- Reporting on the unrivalled retention time stability features of µPAC™ columns.
- Understanding the power of bio-informatic tools to get the most out of the acquired data.
Next to the presentation we will have several posters about our micro Pillar Array Column (µPAC™) technology.
