Data-Independent Acquisition: A Superior Technique in Mass Spectrometry?
Blog

Whilst Mass Spectrometry is undoubted in its status as a central part of the proteomics toolkit, there is still debate about the way that MS data should be acquired and analyzed. Here, we talk to Florian Marty, Director Global Product Support at Biognosys AG, about why he believes that data-independent acquisition is a superior acquisition technique.
