The APGC source is unique in that it allows scientists to make exact mass LC/MS/MS and GC/MS/MS measurements on a single Xevo TQ-S Mass Spectrometer eliminating the need to dedicate a mass spectrometer for LC/MS/MS work and another to GC/MS/MS work.
About the MTM Research Center
The Orebro University MTM Research Center is one of three European Union Reference Laboratories supporting United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) efforts to build capacity among the network of worldwide independent and government laboratories supporting the provisions of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants which legally binds parties to the Convention to track 22 POPs in the environment and reduce or eliminate their release. Presently 178 of the 191 United Nations member countries have signed the Convention. Analytical methods developed by the MTM Research Center and others are now used by more than 200 laboratories to monitor levels of POPs in marine wildlife, food, water, and human blood, breast milk, and tissue as part of a global monitoring program administered by the UN.
Swedish scientists have been on the forefront of research into POPs ever since a Swedish chemist became the first to identify PCBs in eagles as early as 1964. While at Umea University, Professor
was a member of a research group that became one of the first to discover the presence of brominated flame retardants in whales and, later, in humans. Flame retardants are commonly used in clothing and upholstery.
