High-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM) mass spectrometers (MS) are a class of MS instrumentation with capability to resolve complex sample matrix and to allow identification of compounds by measuring their accurate masses. Specifically, those coupled to liquid chromatograph (HRAM LC/MS) have been used extensively for structural elucidation of unknown compounds primarily in chemical industry (impurity analysis) and biological researches (proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics), but also increasingly in forensic science, food safety and environmental testing. Given the recent reduction of instrumentational cost, it will not take many more years until HRAM analysis becomes a versatile tool for all industries and researches.
The key performance attribute underlying all application fields is MMA as it affords molecular specificity and reduction of false positive results. Dr. Toyama, MS Application Specialist, Analytical & Measuring Instruments Division at Shimadzu Corporation, will also share in detail how various parameters affect the accuracy of mass measurement, including a demonstration of mass drift caused by temperature change.
Founded in 1875 in Kyoto, Japan, Shimadzu is a $3 billion multinational corporation with four business segments: Analytical & Measuring Instruments, Medical Systems, Aircraft Equipment, and Industrial Machinery. The Analytical & Measurement Instruments Division is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of analytical instrumentation. In addition to Japan, Shimadzu products are manufactured in the U.S., the U.K., China, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Malaysia. International sales, service, and technical support facilities are located worldwide.
