What does it mean to go beyond, to exceed your goals?
Some synonyms are to excel, outdo, surpass and transcend. These words mean “to go or be beyond a stated or implied limit, measure or degree.”
Going beyond is always difficult, but it is the nature of science and research. Each day researchers around the world make brilliant discoveries to push the boundaries of what is known and breach the unknown.
There is always a thought about how to accelerate your research. What tools do you need to make the next breakthrough in proteomics, biopharma, metabolomics or any other rapidly developing field?
The beginning of low-flow liquid chromatography mass spectrometry systems
After Novotny demonstrated the advantages of nano-flow LC (nanoLC) analysis and Fenn invented electrospray ionization (ESI) in 1984, the combination of nanoLC and ESI mass spectrometry (MS) started the race toward becoming the most powerful tool in biological research. In 1992 Hunt already applied nanoLC-MS to analyze real biological samples.
Being at the forefront of low-flow liquid chromatography technology, formulation of the requirements to LC instrumentation for nano-scale separations and introduction of the first commercial nano- and capillary-flow columns required deep knowledge and scientific courage. Launch of the pioneering nano-, capillary-, and micro-flow LC system in 1998 dedicated to MS analysis was a breakthrough and started the revolution of transforming LC-MS into a mainstream technology for proteomics.
Enabling beyond brilliant discoveries
The necessity to maximize instrument performance, robustness, and ease-of-use are pushing technology to new levels. What’s coming next to the Thermo Scientific Vanquish UHPLC portfolio will enable #BeyondBrilliant research.
