Feria Internacional de La Habana
Konik has participated in the fair FIHAV 2012, held in Havana (Cuba) from 4 to 10 November 2012

The Montreux LC/MS 2012 conference
Dr. Josep M. Gibert 29th had participated on the LC / MS Montreux Symposium with a presentation entitled "Multidimensional HPLC + GC-MS vs. LC-MS-MS: Extended Use for Non-volatile and Polar Compounds in Clinical Analysis Using On-line Derivatization"

MULTIDIMENSIONAL HPLC+GC-MS K2Q12 at the University of Granada (Spain)
We have successfully completed installation of the innovative Multidimensional HPLC+GC-MS Konik K2Q12 System at the University of Granada (Spain) (see photo).
The system includes the Patented Konik Derivatizer, a revolutionary on-line derivatization system that extends the arrange of applications of the K2Q12 System to the analysis polar non volatile substances by GC-MS. The system complements and replaces advantageously tandem MS-MS Systems by simplifying sample preparation by the HPLC front end, lowering detection limits in the TOTAD HPLC+GC and enrichment interfaces, while allowing selective detection of the target analytes as well as unknowns in a white variety of samples matrices.

In the attached photo, Dt. Gibert commenting of the benefits of the benefits of this powerful, Patented Multidimensional technique to asses Halal quality to pharmaceutical and food products the challenges being faced in determination of Halal quality of pharmaceutical and food products can be advantageously satisfied by simplifying sample preparation protection integrity of the sampling matrices and enhancing trazability of minor constituency lowering detection limits and preventing and wanted on desirable interferences by multiple selectivity steps does replacing alternative tandem MS-MS analytical procedures.



ISC 2010 - Valencia, September 12 – 16 www.isc2010.eu

Our Managing Director Dr. Josep M. Gibert has presented an oral presentation entitled “MULTIDIMENSIONAL HPLC+GC-MS: EXTENDED USE FOR NON-VOLATILE AND POLAR COMPOUNDS USING ON-LINE DERIVATIZATION”. Our innovative, patented, multidimensional KONIK K2Q12 HPLC+HRGC-MS system earlier used advantageously in the analysis of volatiles and semi-volatiles has been successfully used to determination of polar, non-volatile, substances. These new applications are based on a patented, automated, on-line derivatization approach.
Extending the range of applications of our combined LC-GC technology to the analysis of non-volatile and polar substances, has been achieved by automatic derivatization of compounds in the GC inlet through the KONIK TOTAD® interface. The presented applications include phenolic compounds in cocoa samples and drug impurities in illicit drugs…all by direct injection of sample extracts into the HPLC and analysis of the on-line formed silyl derivatives into the coupled KONIK GC-MS without any prior sample clean-up step.

This system simplifies sample handling; the derivatization step is totally automatized and faster than in off-line methodology, reduces total analysis time, the use of solvents and sample consumption, especially important in several fields, such as forensic analysis. The on-line derivatization HPLC+GC system also reduces significantly the total cost of analysis while maintaining sample integrity, increasing recovery and improving detection limits. Finally, the on-line LC+GC-MS approach guarantees GC column integrity due to less derivatization by-products introduction into the system.
The KONIK Multidimensional HPLC+GC-MS System offers clean cut advantages vs. LC-MS-MS systems, as the KONIK K2Q12 can be used for target analytes determination with higher selectivity than MS-MS, as well as allows lower detection limits than HPLC-MS-MS and/or GC-MS-MS, while being quite universal as facilitates low level determination of any organics (volatiles, semi-volatiles and non-volatiles), in any sample matrix with minimum or no-sample preparation.
This breath taking innovative technology is complemented by a Universal Quantification option, the KONIK Quantitator, that eliminates de use of calibration standards. The overall KONIK, breakthroughs, as complement and replace existing technologies, are finding their way in many fields such as metabolomics, natural and pharmaceutical products, drugs, forensics and toxicology, environmental and industrial hygiene, and petroleum and bio-fuels fingerprinting among other.
