The LCGC Blog: Flow Injection Analysis with MS Detection
Flow injection analysis (FIA) is a powerful technique for quantitative analysis, especially in conjunction with mass spectrometry (MS) detection, and one that Kevin Schug believes to be underappreciated. In this latest instalment of the LCGC Blog, Schug discusses how FIA can be combined with MS using electrospray ionization and details how this unconventional technique can be used for analyses such as binding constant determination, multipoint calibrations of instrument response, and removing the dependence of measured analyte concentrations on matrix effects.

SEC-MALS Detector
Based on Wyatt Technology’s legacy of multi-angle light scattering (MALS) detectors, the DAWN HELEOS-II is the MALS detector with the greatest sensitivity for absolute molecular weight and size determinations of polymers and biopolymers in solution. The DAWN may be connected in series to any chromatographic system in order to determine absolute molar masses without the use of reference standards or column calibration. Learn more
