MSU Researcher Claims New TOF-MS Method Offers Significant Mass Accuracy and Sensitivity Gains | GenomeWeb

A Montana State University researcher has developed a technique for time-of-flight mass spectroscopy that he claims can provide a substantial improvement in mass accuracy and an up to 10-fold increase in sensitivity.

The technique, which is described in a paper to be published in an upcoming issue of Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry, uses physical signal modulation to improve the performance of TOF mass spec instruments without requiring any hardware changes.
