Facundo Fernandez and his team at Georgia Tech have been working on combining a robotic arm with mass spectrometry (robotic surface analysis – RoSA-MS) (1) – and it could prove a boon to pharma manufacturing.

About the Author

Joanna Cummings

A former library manager and storyteller, I have wanted to write for magazines since I was six years old, when I used to make my own out of foolscap paper and sellotape and distribute them to my family. Since getting my MSc in Publishing, I’ve worked as a freelance writer and content creator for both digital and print, writing on subjects such as fashion, food, tourism, photography – and the history of Roman toilets. Now I can be found working on The Analytical Scientist, finding the ‘human angle’ to cutting-edge science stories.
