Quality: The Third Side of the Analytical Success Triangle

As analytical chemists, we spend considerable time thinking about and working with basic scientific principles combined with the technology and products that allow us to solve our analytical problems. However, it is essential for success of any...

Importance of Limits Option in the NIST Mass Spectral Search Program

The Wiley Registry of Mass Spectral Data has contained a number of “single-peak” spectra such as those shown in Figure 1. Such spectra in an EI database used for the identification of unknowns based on their mass spectra are of no benefit. These...

Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry (FAIMS/DMS) Applications

This technical article is looking at the incorporation of FAIMS/DMS into a conventional LC/MS system to provide an added dimension of ion separation which is orthogonal to both chromatographic and mass spectrometric separation mechanisms. In a...

A Primer on Ion Mobility Spectrometry

Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS), by itself has found a niche in many areas including security screening, environmental monitoring, military applications, and analytical laboratory use. The technique is not mass spectrometry, however it is related...

Choose the Right Interface for LC/MS Success

Many analysts never consider anything beyond the electrospray interface for LC/MS. Electrospray is undeniably a very flexible technique. It works well for macromolecules as well as small molecules, positive and negative ion mode, and is a great...

FREE Master Class on LCMS Unknown Identification Using MSMS Libraries

MS/MS (Tandem) spectra can be used to identify unknowns employing library searches. This is accomplished in much the same approach as that employed for EI GC-MS with the NIST search software. The much improved NIST Search Version 2.4 is included...

FREE Master Class on Effective Use of Mass Spectral Databases

Mass spectral libraries are a powerful tool for the identification of organic compounds in complex mixtures by mass spectrometry. This masterclass will demonstrate the use of the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) software...

Using AI to provide cost-effective elemental ICP-OES analysis

Are you looking to simplify maintenance, improve analytical performance, and reduce sample remeasurement with your ICP-OES analyses? If so, this on-demand webinar is aimed at you...
