In order to accurately quantify the concentration of trace analytes within a complex mixture, appropriate sample preparation is imperative. Some of the most common pretreatment methods that are used prior to analysis by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) or gas chromatography with mass spectrometry (GC-MS) include liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) and solid phase extraction (SPE).

Researchers have uncovered how cannabinoid profiles that vary within the same Cannabis plant can elicit organ-specific effects in the plant itself. This in-planta variability means stringent standardization is required before Cannabis can be implemented as a therapeutic crop for modern medicine.
 
 Lifestyle Profiling as a Forensic Analysis Technique
 
Lifestyle Profiling as a Forensic Analysis TechniqueLifestyle profiling represents a new method where the chemistries that are obtained from the personal objects of a person are used to build their lifestyle profile. This is then used to infer the person’s location and characteristics which are further applied to various forensic investigations.
 
 
 What is Shotgun Lipidomics?
 
What is Shotgun Lipidomics?Lipidomics refers to the study of cellular lipidomes, meaning the network of lipid constituents that maintain cellular and bodily health. Shotgun lipidomics follows these networks of lipids within biological systems on a larger scale, allowing identification, quantification, and interaction of lipids to be studied.
