Mass spectrometry

The use of mass spectrometry as an analytical method has become indispensable in laboratories and the process industry. The wide range of application scenarios and the possibility of combining them with separation methods such as chromatography make it an all-rounder in chemical analysis. The areas covered are manifold, whether in diagnostics, biotechnology, trace analysis or environmental chemistry, mass spectrometers are always used to obtain exact results.
