You Can’t Keep a Good Idea Down
Posted on December 17th, 2019
What have Post-it notes, Silly Putty, Velcro, microwave ovens and The Analytical Scientist and Anatune’s latest Application Note on thermal desorption (TD)-SIFT-MS all have in common? Apart from being immensely useful (even Silly Putty) … serendipity, that’s what!
A couple of months after demonstrating Syft Technologies’ new TD-SIFT-MS at the IABR 2019 Breath Summit, I decided it was time to write a short App Note on what I did there – which was largely eating mints and breathing into TD tubes. And on the same day I put the App Note together, this month’s The Analytical Scientist magazine dropped onto my desk, containing the 2019 Innovation Awards list. Flicking through it, I happened to come across – at No. 7 in the list – Syft Technologies’ High Throughput TD-SIFT-MS! Who says we don’t plan this stuff!
Just goes to show, you can’t keep a good idea down…
