Counting Molecules by Desorption Ionization and Mass Spectrometry/Mass Spectrometry.
Cooks, R. G.; Busch, K. L.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n11 p926-33 Nov 1982
Discusses two newer methods in mass spectrometry and shows how they can increase signal and signal-to-noise ratios, respectively. The first method, desorption ionization (DI), increases sensitivity while the second method, mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (MS/MS), increases specificity. Together, the two methods offer improved analytical performance. (Author/JN)
