Scientific today announced the start of the 2013 tour of the
European MASStastic Voyage, featuring a state-of-the-art mobile
laboratory traveling across Europe. This lab-on-wheels will provide
"open house" opportunities for anyone interested in using mass
spectrometry and separation science to solve analytical challenges.
Kicking off next week in Holland, the tour will now include a free
breakfast seminar on board the mobile lab at each stop in over 20
European cities. Follow the entire tour at tour

The 2013 European MASStastic Voyage is relevant for anyone involved in
food safety testing, drug discovery & development, clinical research,
environmental analysis and biomedical research. The free breakfast
seminars will provide information not only about new technologies, but
also about new techniques, useful tips and improved methodologies to
enhance analytical workflows.
On board the MASStastic Voyage mobile lab are the latest innovations in
analytical instrumentation, including the AB SCIEX QTRAP®
4500 System, QTRAP® 6500 System, TripleTOF® 5600+
System and the Eksigent micro LC system. Samples will be run aboard the
mobile lab. Phenomenex will present the newest developments of the
Kinetex® Core-Shell HPLC/UHPLC-Technology, allowing customers
to realize the maximum performance of their LC systems.
This MASStastic Voyage mobile lab is coming off a successful run at the
end of 2012 in Spain and the UK, drawing more than 200 visitors within
three weeks, including pharmaceutical scientists, academics, lab
technicians and lab directors who attended the EBF Barcelona 2012
conference. Looking ahead, the mobile lab will make a special appearance
in April at the Berliner Symposium of mass spectrometry users after its
extensive trek across Europe. To register for the German symposium, go

"The MASStastic Voyage is the most talked-about activity happening in
the mass spectrometry industry in Europe in early 2013, and customer
feedback about this tour has been extremely positive," said Steve
Taylor, a manager in AB SCIEX's European Market Development team.
"As we run real samples while traveling thousands upon thousands of
kilometers across the continent, we fully expect our instrumentation to
be as rugged and reliable at the end of the tour as at the start. We
will power up and vent the instrument every day, pushing it well beyond
its normal operating parameters."
Experts in LC/MS/MS solutions from AB SCIEX, Phenomenex and Peak
Scientific will be on board the mobile laboratory, available to talk to
scientists and lab technicians from industry and academia about a broad
array of topics.
"The mass spectrometry expertise of AB SCIEX along with the separation
science expertise of Phenomenex has proved to be a potent combination
for solving the most urgent and challenging analytical needs of
scientists everywhere," said Michael McGinley, Phenomenex HPLC
Product Manager. "This mobile laboratory allows users to see the
latest advances in technology and integrated solutions right at their
Andy Reid, European Sales Manager at Peak Scientific, said, "Our
key to success is being able to reliably support AB SCIEX mass
spectrometers, as Peak Scientific gas generators provide a continuous
flow of nitrogen ensuring accurate results every time. We are excited to
show our customers how robust our generators are within a working
laboratory environment, and this mobile lab is a fantastic way to do
