Mass Spectrometry has multiple use in techniques like Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption-Ionization, Electrospray Ionization, Protein Topology, Labelling Techniques, Mass analyzer designs.


The technique of using mass spectrometry is called laser induced liquid bead ion desorption which in terms referred as (LILBID). This technique allows us to detect membranes proteins by developing a series of microdroplets and then get radiated using a laser of an IR range. These can be identified at lower intensities complexes whereas in higher intensities subunits can be known. This new technique can also be thought as combination of another type of MS often used MALDI and electrospray. In addition, the studies using this ES technique shows that micelles can certainly exist in the gas phase.
