Ion mobility-mass spectrometry : methods and protocols [electronic resource]


This book focuses on ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS) and informatics approaches to improve traditional analysis of molecules by providing fundamentals and protocols for exploiting the potential of state-of-the-art IM-MS technology for the most common analytical applications. The chapters have been organized into four parts, each dealing with a particular set of IM-MS applications: 1) metabolomics and lipidomics; 2) proteomics and glycomics; 3) imaging and ambient ionization IM-MS; and 4) bioinformatic solutions for analyzing IM-MS data and deriving CCS values. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Ion Mobility-Mass Spectrometry: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal resource for scientists delving into the technique's unprecedented analytical advantages, enabling novel qualitative and quantitative applications for the analysis of complex biological samples.
