Optimize analyte dynamic range in gas chromatography

A non-specific gas analyzer with a wide dynamic range of concentration is used to assess the gas sample for total load of volatile organic constituents, and then control either a dilution with neutral gas or the quantity of sample aspirated in order to consistently deliver an appropriate total load of volatile analyte to a high-sensitivity analyzer. Such high-sensitivity analyzers may be gas chromatography combined with mass spectrometry or related mass spectrometry configurations, such as selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry, gas chromatography combined with ion mobility spectrometry, or related ion mobility configurations such as differential mobility spectrometry..

Preparation of thin tissue sections for imaging mass spectrometry

The invention relates to the preparation of thin tissue sections for mass spectrometric (maldi) imaging, and proposes a method wherein a microcrystalline layer of the matrix material is produced on the surface of the thin tissue sections, and soluble analyte molecules are transported orthogonally through the thin tissue section to the matrix layer, without substantial lateral diffusion, by means of a solvent flow with alternating or constant direction, and are then deposited in the matrix layer and, if possible, embedded in the matrix crystals. A solvent flow which alternates in direction can be produced by successive, alternating phases of swelling and drying, brought about by periodic changes to the thin tissue section temperature and/or the partial pressures of the solvents.

Method of ms mass spectrometry

A method of mass spectrometry is disclosed comprising alternating between a first mode in which parent ions are analysed and a second mode in which parent ions are fragmented and their fragment ions are mass analysed. In the first mode the parent ions are charge reduced before being analysed, so as to simplify the parent ion spectral data obtained.

Method and apparatus to provide parallel acquisition of mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry data

A system and method for acquisition of mass spectrometry data is configured to provide a stream of charged particles (e.g., from an analytical volume). A primary mass spectrometer (e.g., time-of-flight mass spectrometer) may be used to separate charged particles of the stream of charged particles based on their mass-to-charge ratio and detect the charged particles in a mass-to-charge spectrum.

Methods for quantifying polypeptides using mass spectrometry

A method for identifying a polypeptide a specimen can include (i) treating a specimen suspected of comprising an insulin with a base; (ii) extracting a first fraction of the treated specimen by solid phase extraction using a mixed mode or polymeric reversed-phase media and a first solvent comprising an acid; (iii) separating a component of the first fraction by liquid chromatography using a chromatographic surface including a hydrophobic surface group and one or more ionizable modifiers, and a second solvent comprising an acid; and (iv) analyzing the component of the first fraction by mass spectroscopy, thereby identifying the polypeptide, if present, using a signal corresponding to a sequence fragment ion from the polypeptide. The signal can correspond to an intact multiply charged precursor fragment selected in a first quadrupole and its corresponding sequence fragment ion selected in a final quadrupole..
