Analysis by LC-Orbitrap mass spectrometry in the laboratory
You need analysis by Orbitrap mass spectrometry
What is Orbitrap mass spectrometry?
Firstly, Orbitrap mass spectrometry allows the trapping of ions by an electrostatic field. These ions have a variable axial oscillation frequency depending on their mass to charge ratio, which allows them to be separated.
The Orbitrap consists of a central electrode and a cylindrical outer electrode. The central electrode, coaxial with the inner axis, traps the ions in an orbital motion and a mass spectrum can then be generated from the detector which converts the induced current image of the trapped ions into a frequency spectrum using the Fourier transform.
Therefore, Orbitrap mass spectrometry offers quantitative mass spectrometry coupled to liquid chromatography (LC-MS) with high mass resolution and accuracy (HRAM).
