Variable Data-Independent Acquisition (vDIA) Delivers High Selectivity and Sensitivity in Combined Targeted and Untargeted Analyses for Small Molecules
18 March 2015

Forty-four multi-class veterinary drugs of known concentrations were employed to demonstrate how the use of a generic variable data-independent acquisition (vDIA) method with wide MS/MS precursor isolation windows achieves sensitivity and selectivity comparable to data-dependent MS2 acquisition (using narrow isolation windows) in quantitative and qualitative small molecule applications. In addition, a full record of MS and MS/MS data for the measured sample fit for non-targeted and unknown screening purposes is delivered.
