Brazil spectrometry lab gets formal recognition

Jan 31 2012

A Brazilian spectrometry lab has been formally recognised for its innovative work.

The Thomson Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, at the Institute of Chemistry at the University of Campinas, Campinas, Brazil, was recognised as a Center of Innovation by the Waters Corporation.

The lab is the first mass spectrometry laboratory in Latin America to receive such a designation.

Centre staff and students were awarded the prize at a campus ceremony.

"Today we are celebrating a milestone for mass spectrometry in Brazil," said Dr Marcos Eberlin, the lab's director.
"It's been an honour for a laboratory in Brazil to be chosen a Waters Center of Innovation."

The lab is pioneering mass spectrometry research in ambient mass spectrometry, proteomics and peptidomics, lipidomics, MS imaging, bacteria and microorganism fingerprinting, petroleomics, MS of ionic liquids and MS fingerprinting for forensic investigations.

Founded in 1958, Waters Corporation makes analytical instruments that assist scientists in reaching their scientific goals.
