Mass Spectrometry and Diagnostics: Match Made in Heaven
The measurement of the mass of ionized atomic or molecular species has been around for more than 100 years. For about 50 of them it has come out of the physics lab and into the analytical chemistry realm. More recently, with the establishment of desorption ionization methods mass spectrometry (MS) has taken its first steps into biochemistry research. Some of us think […]
