Mass Spectrometry Ionization
Article

Mass spectrometry (MS) plays a vital role in many aspects of our lives, from diagnosing illness and detecting food contaminants to fighting fraud. In order for a sample to be analyzed by MS, it must however, first be ionized. There are a number of ways of achieving sample ionization depending on the sample type, target analyte and desired workflow. In this article, we consider some common ionization techniques and sample types for which they are best suited.
