Prof. Jiangjiang Zhu and colleagues develop metabolomics techniques based on Super SESI-Orbitrap to study lung and colorectal cancer, intestinal bacteria and their influence on cancer.
We have recently installed a new Super SESI and a new Exhalion, that will work in tandem with a Thermo QExactive Plus. This investment validates the technology.
With this acquisition, ETH Zurich (Switzerland) consolidates its position as a top research institution, leading the field of breath research.
Presentation of our Scietific poster on Real-time Breath analysis confounding variables and standardization strategies at ASMS-Atlanta 2019.
We are proud that Jinan University is now using SUPER SESI for breath analysis and environmental analysis.
We hope this new Super SESI Exhalion coupled with the Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer Q Exactive, will allow the IMSAE researchers to focus on their scientific findings, while taking consistency and performance for granted.
SESI and ESI (Electro-Spary Ionization) have been linked since the initial development of ESI. Fenn and colleagues already noted that gas-phase species in the counterflow gas were also ionized by the spray. Still today, the routine calibration of mass spectral data relies on ubiquitous plasticizes and other contaminants (i.e. polydimethylcyclosiloxanes, phthalates) that are ionized in regular ESI via Secondary Electrospray Ionization mechanisms.
Sinues is a pioneer of the SESI technology and established SESI-MS as a technique for breath research. The goal in the granted project is to optimize the therapeutic regimen of pediatric patients to maximize efficacy and minimize side effects. For this the group will develop a mass spectrometry-based breath test.
