LCGC TV: Gérard Hopfgartner on Advances in Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry

March 1, 2015

Performing liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS) analysis on tissue samples requires sample homogenization, which destroys the sample and loses its spatial resolution. Gérard Hopfgartner from the University of Geneva, University of Lausanne, Switzerland, presents an alternative method coupling liquid extraction surface analysis with modifier-assisted differential ion mobility spectrometry, describes other application areas, and gives his opinion on whether this is the beginning of the end for chromatography.
