In this session we will consider in-depth the instrumentation and working principles of the various mass analyser types typically used with GC-MS analysis. This will include Quadrupole, Ion Trap, Time of Flight and Magnetic Sector instruments. We consider the theory of mass analysis, the ways in which instruments can be optimised and we use some typical illustrative example applications.
We look at the various analyser performance characteristics and the way n which they can be used in order to achieve various mass spectral experiment objectives.
