It's exciting to see mass spectrometry being recognised in the media, such as in the Ash Clinical News. There are many types of mass spectrometers available, each offering its own benefits in terms of accuracy and speed of analysis. Some methods may be more expensive or time-consuming, but they can also provide highly accurate results. Regardless of the type of mass spectrometer being used, the goal is always to produce reliable and efficient analysis of samples.
In this article, they discuss the use of spectrometers, such as liquid chromatography and laser assisted spectrometry, for Diagnosing and Monitoring Plasma Cell Disorders.
