Targeted Small Molecule Assays

For some applications a targeted assay may be needed to provide quantitative information on compounds of interest. Development of these assays may be possible in some cases. Submit a consultation request to learn more.

An example depiction of the data analysis workflow for PFAS quantitation. MS1 and MS2 data (without dynamic exclusion) can be collected allowing for calibration in either the MS1 or MS2 dimension. Collection of MS2 data on high res equipment allows for dot product (dotp) qualitative verification.
