Tandem Mass Spectrometry (MS/MS)

Mass spectrometers are commonly combined with separation devices such as gas chromatographs (GC) and liquid chromatographs (LC). The GC or LC separates the components in a mixture, and the components are introduced, one by one, into the mass spectrometer. MS/MS is an analogous technique where the first-stage separation device is another mass spectrometer.

Fraction base-KMD plots for a high-MW - S3000 - MSTips - 283

High molecular weight polymers are often MS-silent due to their inherent high dispersity (DM) or detected in the high mass range with low resolving power. An "on-plate" alkaline degradation has thus been developed as a sample pre-treatment on the MALDI target with tenths of ng of polymer to cut long industrial polyester chains into short oligomers amenable to MALDI-HRMS.

High Sensitivity Analysis of Intact Proteins using Linear TOF

The JMS-S3000 SpiralTOF has a unique 17m flight path that offers then highest resolution MALDI-TOF MS system currently available. However, ions with a very short lifetime or that undergo spontaneous dissociation during their flight cannot be detected by the SpiralTOF (or a conventional reflection TOF). To address this situation, the SpiralTOF with Linear TOF option can be used for the high sensitivity analysis of intact proteins.

Evolved Gas Analysis of Iron Powder using a TG/DTA System with a High-resolution Multi-turn Mass Spectrometer

Thermogravimetry/differential thermal analysis (TG/DTA) systems are often used to analyze the thermal behavior of metal materials. These systems measure changes in sample weight as they relate to programmed oven temperatures. It is generally known that during the measurement process, as the weight decreases, gases are evolved.
