Mass Spectrometry in Medicine

Mass spectrometry is an analysis which determine where the required molecules makes a sample ion based on spectrum. Mass Spectrometers can analyze a small amount of samples at once where the diagnostic is carried out. Mass Spectrometry acts as profile of drugs where microdoses are given in sense predicts the adverse effects of the drug while allows scientists to determine the reactions takes place in the human body.

For drug development these techniques are used along with Mass Spectrometry High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Ion Chromatography (IC), Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS), Gas Chromatography (GC) etc., these techniques are more used in drug development due to their speed, sensitivity and selectivity.

Analysis of metabolites and proteins has utilization of MS as this technology rapidly enters the medical field where professionals and students can take advantage of its capabilities. It would go a long way to help the utilization of mass spectrometry in medicine.
