Tandem mass spectrometry is the detection method of choice when analytical specificity and speed of analysis is needed. Flow-injection analysis tandem mass spectrometry (FIA-MS/MS) enables the rapid and multiplexed screening of compounds, in a single injection. When FIA takes the place of liquid chromatography separations, what else can you do to ensure data is of the very highest quality, as demanded in a clinical setting? 

By understanding how sample preparation, analytical methods and instrument settings can influence results, it becomes possible to address the causes of between- and within-laboratory variation in FIA-MS/MS methods. 

This webinar, led by FIA-MS/MS expert Dr. Heather Brown, will highlight the benefits and limitations of the technique, followed by a detailed description of factors influencing variability in FIA-MS/MS data.

The audience will take away ideas for designing system suitability testing procedures for their own workflow, to enable sample and instrument-issues to be identified before they impact service.


Key learning objectives:

  • The benefits and limitations of flow injection analysis
  • How instrument and sample factors can contribute to variability between systems
  • How to design a system suitability verification procedure to spot system issues before they affect performance

Who should attend? 
Laboratory technologists, lab scientists, lab physicians, scientists and researchers who employ flow injection mass spectrometry in routine or research applications 

All webinar participants are eligible for P.A.C.E and ACCENT credits for continuing education purposes.
