What tool can help people find cancer earlier, give plants a fighting chance when water is scarce or develop new fuels to get our vehicles from point A to B? Mass Spectrometry can! Join us and find out how researchers are utilizing this powerful tool to find differences in everything from single cells to entire forests. We use mass spectrometry to identify changes in proteins, metabolic compounds as well as lipids in any living system. With this knowledge, we can fill in the blueprint of life and understand biological systems in a way that we never could before.
