Mass spectrometry

While formidable masses are comparatively easy to measure, molecules and small particles require advanced techniques, such as mass spectrometry. A flow of new applications have been developed in a variety of fields, ranging from pharmacokinetics and microbiology to chemical analytics and medical diagnostics to environmental and even space research, the instruments often being combined with chromatographic techniques and large databases. This special topic updates you on recent developments.
