How would you describe what you do at SCIEX to your friends and family?
"As the actual applications that we do are relatively complex, I always talk about what we do in terms of how the technology is used to benefit them in their daily lives. Connecting the science to what interests them and what matters to people is relatively easy because SCIEX solutions are used in so many important places. Whether it is talking about how the X500R is used to screen for pesticides in our food supply, or how SWATH acquisition is changing how we find biomarkers for early cancer detection, it is easy to be proud of what we do here at SCIEX!"
What are some Applications, Publications, or Collaborations you have worked on?
"Recently, I helped coordinate a large study with eleven SWATH acquisition labs all over the world, where we investigated the fundamental reproducibility of this emerging MS technique to answer the question whether this technique could be deployed for large-scale biomarker research. We looked at how many proteins could be quantified reproducibly within each lab and how comparable the results were between labs. Excitingly, we found that labs were producing very similar data and that our quantitation data between labs could be easily combined after a simple normalization step. It was a fun project with amazing results, and working with my SWATH friends all over the world was very rewarding!"
