Tandem Mass Spectrometry

The multiple steps of mass spectrometry selection where occurrence of some fragmentations in the stages of Mass Spectrometry is known as Tandem mass spectrometry. It can be known as MS2. There are different type tandem mass spectrometers such as triple stage quadrupoles, quadrupole/time-of-flight, quadrupole-linear ion trap hybrid instruments, time-of-flight-time-of-flight. It uses in Peptides sequencing, Oligosaccharides sequencing, glycolipids sequencing. It is used for the analysis of biomolecules (proteins and peptides).
