Know Your Ion Sources

There are many ionization options for mass spectrometry

By

A mass spectrometer consists of four main components: a sample inlet, an ion source, a mass analyzer, and a detector. The ion source, considered the heart of the mass spectrometer, functions to create gaseous ion fragments from the sample. While any ionization source can be used in conjunction with any mass analyzer, it is essential to choose the right ionization source for a given experiment.
