Wanna know what someone was eating 500 years ago? Do proteomics on their pottery?!?


I gotta type fast, but this is sooo cool!

Come on, did you ever think about how you'd learn about the eating habits of people in history with your mass spectrometer? 

They didn't waste a bunch of ancient relics, they worked on embedding albumin into pottery and got the solvent extraction conditions all the way they wanted them.


Insight into the past! LCMS was done with an Orbi Elite (which are still totally badass instruments if you know how to run one, I don't care what anyone says [only being defensive because someone who will not be named made fun of my Q Exactive]).
