A Beginner’s Guide to Mass Spectrometry
Mass spectrometry (MS) is a valuable tool that can give you vast amounts of MS data to help you identify and quantify components. MS has been used to discover, determine, and quantify sample compounds in the proteomics, metabolomics, imaging, and glycomics applications across the food, pharmaceutical, and environmental industries. Combining MS with appropriate software and computer technology allows the possibility for more extensive applications. But first, we must understand the basics.
