Mass spectrometryMass spectrometry ("mass spec" or MS) is a powerful analytical tool for proteomics research and drug discovery. MS has become the method of choice for protein analysis. The accuracy, sensitivity and flexibility of MS instruments have enabled new applications in biological research. MS can identify and quantify known and unknown compounds by revealing their structural and chemical properties. Proper sample preparation, protein quantitation techniques, and instrument calibration are critical components for successful MS-based proteomics analysis.
