Seamless Integration of Mass Detection into the UV Chromatographic Workflow


LCGC North America

Historically, UV detection has been favored in many laboratories for its ease of use, robustness, and reliability. However, some of the inherent challenges include analytes that do not have a response in a UV channel, coelutions, and unknowns, any of which can require an orthogonal approach such as mass detection. While mass detection offers a number of benefits when used in tandem with UV detection, incorporating it into an existing UV workflow can be time-consuming and laborious.
