In this session we will consider the next section of the mass spectrometer, after the production of gas phase ions and their declustering in the interface, the mass analyzers.
All of the most common mass analyzer types, from quadrupoles through to time of flight instruments to Orbitraps will be included and will be discussed in detail.
The different types of experimental data acquisitions (Scan, SIM, SRM and neutral loss) will also be explained, with reference to differences between triple quadrupoles, single quadrupole and ion trap based instruments.
Amy began using chromatography at the start of her academic career with nanoflow-liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, and a variety of other proteomics techniques, for her research into the dynamic proteome. The laboratory also focused on gas chromatographic separations of volatile biological samples.
After using chromatography for 10 years, Amy has now moved into a more training-based role with Crawford Scientific, where she hopes to share the knowledge she gained during her time in the laboratory.
Tony Taylor B.Sc. CChem FRSC Cert. Ed.
Tony has been doing, researching, teaching and training in analytical chemistry for the past 28 years. He comes from a pharmaceutical and polymer analysis background and continues to work with both liquid and gas phase techniques at Crawford Scientific (UK).
His main interests are the use of LC-MS and GC-MS for structural characterisation and the quantitation of trace components in complex matrices. He is professionally qualified trainer and is Technical Director of the CHROMacademy.
