How do you couple the incompatible techniques that are mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography? Tom Covey, Principal Scientist at SCIEX, called this problem “the liquid phase-gas phase dilemma.” Cracking this dilemma sparked the breakthrough launch of the API III system, which enabled scientists to answer untapped questions by measuring analytes in an LC flow, and propelled the field of life science research forward.
That led to a discovery of an entirely new physical principle [known as collisional focusing]. To this day, … [most], if not all, atmospheric mass spectrometers on the planet utilize that principle.
