Mass Spectrometry- What You Should Know about It?

The demand for mass spectrometry is growing rapidly in life science and clinical sector. Some of its most common applications in life science and clinical studies are determination of protein structure, interactions and folding; protein identification from the mass of its peptide fragment; relative or absolute quantification of proteins in a given sample; monitoring of enzyme reactions; chemical modifications; protein digestion; forensic analysis; and disease biomarkers detection. All these applications are very vital in life science and clinical studies and with increasing healthcare awareness, advanced research and development, increasing cases of drug abuse, and high number of metabolic diseases, the demand for mass spectrometer is rapidly growing.

Mass spectrometer is an important analytical tool for the study of proteins. Proteomics is very difficult to analyse and study, due to the complexity of its structures. Mass spectrometry helps to analyse the composition of different biological samples and offers quantitative proteogenomics and proteomics. All these factors tend to drive the growth of the mass spectrometry market.
