A warm welcome to our new group members Alice and Lucas

This week we want to welcome two new students to Kruvelab: Alice Kollmitz and Lucas Ferrando Plo. Originally from Spain, Lucas recently finished his MSc degree in Germany. His objective was to elucidate the origin of anthraquinone residues in the leaves of English walnut tree (Juglans regia). In our group, he is the first of […]

SETAC Europe 34th Annual Meeting

Last week I had the pleasure to present at SETAC Europe 34th Annual Meeting conference in the beautiful city of Sevilla. There, I shared insights of the possibility of using endocrine activity labeled molecular networking for non-target data evaluation.  It was an amazing experience attending interesting talks, meeting many people who are excited about their work, and […]

Two weeks ago, very spontaneously, we traveled to Halle (Saale) in Germany to attend the Leopoldina Symposium on Molecular Machine Learning, held the from 4th to the 6th of March and hosted by the SPP 2363 of the German Science Society (DFG). The conference took place in the beautiful and historic building of the German […]

Welcome Emma

Welcome Emma to Kruvelab! In the autumn, we were lucky to participate in an interlaboratory trial on non-target screening (NTS) with liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (LC/HRMS) alongside other Swedish labs. We were able to test our ability to identify spiked chemicals in blind water samples as well as quantify the tentatively identified chemicals with […]

26. Norsk Symposium i Kromatografi

From the 21st to the 23rd of January Amina and Anneli attended the 26th Norsk Kromatografisymposiet, where Amina also presented her most recent research on evaluating the limit of detection for non-target LC/HRMS. Norsk Symposium i Kromatografi (Norwegian Chromatography Symobosium) takes place every two years in the Sandefjord, which is about 1.5 h drive from […]

ICNTS 2023 in Erding, Germany

In the middle of October, a large part of our group had a chance to present and discuss our research in ICNTS 2023 in Erding, Germany. ICNTS, International Conference on Non-Target Screening for long, is a biannual conference focused on detecting, identifying, and characterizing unknown chemicals with high-resolution mass spectrometry and other techniques. The rather […]
