Metabolite Identification – The TV Show

This was mentioned awhile ago by Bethany Halford in the Comments Section of the ever rancorous TheChemBlog. The video is produced as a chemists’ CSI TV episode. I realize most of you don’t have a background in metabolite identification[1], but it’s still a rather acute chemistry(analytical chemistry) spoof. Click screen shot of video below.

The video is an advertisement gimmick for Thermo Fischer Scientific, obviously enough Wink. A link to the original video can be viewed from this web page: http://www.biocompare.com/video/thermo/smi/

[1]: Not saying, I have a background in metabolite identification, but I do have more experience with it than you might expect for a nuclear chemist.
