We believe that this patent pending sample containment and processing system, combined with the unique power of PCT, gives the researcher extraordinary ability to gain new knowledge using today's analytical identification techniques, such as mass spectrometry. Based on the results from our Beta Site tests, we believe that our PCT MicroTube Adapter Kit can benefit a large segment of the proteomics and genomics research community."
Similarly, in a "differential" mass spectrometry experiment, chromatographic separations are first carried out to identify peaks that differ in abundance between samples (see figure 9) and then efforts are taken to determine the identities of the peptides in those peaks.
So, the two mass spectrometry methods can both be used in a multi-stage mass spectrometry, but in contrast, GC-ITMS can get an improved peak for Citric acid detection.

Although MS-based methods are getting progressively more powerful, reliable, and easily available, the main drawbacks are still related to sample complexity and preparation, mass accuracy, often requiring the use of high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) to guarantee the univocal identification of the targeted compounds, and the need of high-throughput and screening analyses when a great number of samples have to be analyzed.
With origins in basic research, mass spectrometry emerged as a clinical research tool when it was first applied to fingerprint molecules for drug screening in the fight against drugs of abuse.
