Analyst Issue 10 now online

Woodin et al., Analyst, 2013, 138, 2793-2803

Welcome to Analyst Issue 10, our new issue featuring all the latest developments in analytical chemistry. Take a look at our beautiful covers and discover all about the new research behind them.

The outside front cover of the issue gives us a snapshot of the interesting Critical Review by Heather Desaire and co-authors at the University of Kansas, USA, who describe the most recent software tools designed for interpreting mass spectrometry data from glycans and glycopeptides. The authors describe how to analyse the composition of released glycans and characterise both N-linked and O-linked glycopeptides.

Patel et al., Analyst, 138, 2833-2839

Our inside front cover shows the work of Bhavik Anil Patel and colleagues at the University of Brighton, UK. The researchers fabricated and characterised a microelectrode array  for simultaneous multi-site recordings of dopamine release from an isolated single neuron. They observed electrically evoked dopamine release  from the cell body, axonal regions and the terminal. According to the authors, this study provides insights into the signalling mechanisms of neurons and formation of synaptic connections.
