GC-MS and LC-MS are techniques that combine the physical separation capabilities of chromatography (LC/GC) with mass spectrometry (MS). MS is an analytical technique that measures the mass-to-charge ratios of charged particles. At SMC we have both GC and LC instruments coupled with time-of-flight (TOF), QTOF, QqQ detectors, and Orbitrap. A TOF instrument is a single MS detector. The MS detectors (mass filtering) for both the QTOF and QqQ can be used separately or in combination to perform both MS and MS/MS.

TOF=time-of-flight mass spectrometer
Q=quadrupole mass spectrometer
q=quadrupole mass spectrometer with RF, only used as a “collision cell”
