Proteomics Battle Royale Round 3 - Orbitrap vs TIMSTOF vs ZenoTOF vs Q/W-TOFs?


When this idea was suggested for the next Battle Royale, I'll admit I got a little nervous. Honestly, thinking about it very very very early on a Saturday morning (toddlers are always sick, apparently) makes me want to make a high pitched almost laughing sound. There has to be a 100 different reasons why we wouldn't carefully select people to defend their favorite instrument in different scenarios that we come up with, right? It's not like we tend to our magic vacuum chambers... it probably wouldn't turn out extremely bad, right? 

Meh, if we don't do it no one else will! 

Probably in brainstorming stage at this point, but I think we'll really need to fine tune our rules on who our champions can be. Obviously, people who work for or consult for vendors couldn't do it, so that would rule out a lot of big names. I bet government employees and some big pharma companies would have stipulations for employees because championing a product might be construed as a conflict of interest. 

If we could still find people around those limitations, I'll reach out to a Bee Gees cover artist to see if he'll host it again.
