Mass spectrometry is recognized among chemists and diagnosticians as the most accurate analytic method in clinical laboratory. Mass spectrometry works by breaking apart compounds into fragments of ions that serve as a unique "fingerprint" of the parent molecule.
Mass spectrometry analysis is versatile and can be used to test almost any compound of medical importance such as vitamins, hormones, metabolic compounds, minerals, proteins, peptides, as well as drugs and poisons.
Mass spectrometry is cost-effective and well suited for multiplex testing, that is, testing panels of multiple analytes at one time.
Mass spectrometry requires very small sample sizes of test material such as blood, urine, plasma, etc.
