Overview

Manufacturer: Thermo, Finnigan LCQ Deca XP MAX

Over the past decade with introduction of various ionization techniques, liquid chromatography mass spectrometer (LCMS) has undergone tremendous technological improvement allowing for its applications to many metabolic components such as proteins, peptides, carbohydrates, DNA, and drugs, natural products from natural-products extracts, and pure substances from mixtures of chemical intermediates. It plays a significant role in organic chemical research, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, food, and other industries. In principle is similar to Gas Chromatography. However, it is the method of choice for the analysis of semi to non-volatile compounds, which are of medium to large molecular weights in the liquid phase. LCMS is a powerful tool with very high sensitivity in applications towards the separation and identification of mixed chemicals.
