Application Note: Development of a Method for Evaluation of Mass Spectrometer Performance in Real Time
23 October 2013

This poster describes a research method to evaluate the health or status of a mass spectrometer in real time while performing quantitative analysis. This new mode of operating a triple stage quadrupole (TSQ) uses the internal standard to evaluate Q1 and Q3 mass position, peak width and intensities during routine analysis to alert the user whenever any of these parameters are out of tolerance.
