Coupled with high resolution mass spectrometry, SLIM technology is poised to revolutionize the way we analyze biological and chemical compounds
While there has been much advancement in analytical techniques, until fairly recently, there have been challenges in effectively separating molecules based on ionic charge. Traditional liquid chromatography methods may be used, but they have downsides including relatively low throughput and less than optimal resolution.
Enter Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulation (SLIM). SLIM technology was developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and is licensed to MOBILion Systems Inc., a biotechnology company that is taking SLIM-based instruments to the commercial market. Coupled with high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS), SLIM technology is poised to revolutionize the way we analyze biological and chemical compounds.
