What is Mass Spectrometry?

IMG_2658-copy.jpg

Mass Spectrometry (MS) is an extremely powerful analytical technique that underpins all modern day biomolecular science. It measures molecules to determine their weight, thus facilitating the identification and characterization of key components in biological processes (proteins, peptides, carbohydrates, DNA, drugs). MS is the best approach to the analysis of the signalling events (e.g. protein phosphorylation) that drive these processes within cells.
