Special Issue – Advancements in Mass Spectrometry as a Tool for Clinical Analysis
Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (CCLM) is pleased to announce a call for submissions for a special thematic issue on Advancements in Mass Spectrometry as a Tool for Clinical Analysis, which will be published in in the first half of 2020. The submission deadline is August 15, 2019.
Potential topics of interest include:
• Mass spectrometry in clinical ‘omics: metabolomics, lipidomics, proteomics
• Miniaturization and/or portability of mass spectrometers for rapid/on-line analysis
• Modern ionization/sample delivery methods for clinical analysis
• Measurement of illicit drug use
• Identification of bacterial species using mass spectrometry (e.g. MALDI-MS)
• Alternative mediums for analysis (e.g. exhaled breath gases/condensate, saliva)
• Molecular imaging of tissue slices
• Multiplexed assays for biomarker panels of disease
• Mass spectrometry for prognosis/risk prediction of outcome in disease
• Advances in high resolution mass spectrometry in the clinical laboratory
• Advances in supercritical fluid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis coupled to mass spectrometry
About Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine:
• CCLM is one of the leading journals in the field of clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine with a 2017 impact factor of 3.556
• Affiliated with the European Society of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (EFLM) and 10 national Clinical Societies
• Peer-reviewed and led by a multi-institutional editorial board
• Focused on latest developments in the clinical laboratory sciences and novel teaching and training methods
