  Working Principles   

         Liquid chromatography / Mass Spectroscopy (LC / MS) is a technique which combines high performance liquid chromatography HPLC, a powerful analytical separation technique with mass spectroscopy ,a powerful analysis & detection technique.
         There are two common atmospheric pressure ionization (API) LC/MS process: Electrospray Ionization (ESI) & Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization (APCI). Both are soft ionization technique.
         Agilent iFunnel technology combines highly efficient electrospray ion generation and focusing of Agilent Jet Stream technology with a hexabore capillary sampling array and dual-stage ion funnel for increased ion sampling and transmission.
         NanoHPLC combined with mass spectrometer can analysed small molecule as well large molecules like proteins
         UHPLC separations can be detected by PDA & Mass spectrometer as different detectors.

         MS/MS function:
             A. Sample Injection
             B. Ionization
             C. Fragmentation (CID)
             D. Ions travel through Quadruple and Time flight tube and reach the detector on the basis of their m/z value.
