Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometer

The liquid chromatography mass spectrometry system is used to separate and detect components that are considered low or non-volatile in liquid mixtures.

The sample is injected into the system where it meets the mobile phase and is pumped through the separation column and into an electrospray ionization interface to prepare the sample for detection by mass spectrometry.

Typical methods include 

EPA method 539 Determination of Hormones in Drinking Water by Solid Phase Extraction and Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry 

EPA method 537 Determination of Selected Perfluorinated Alkyl Acids in Drinking Water by Solid Phase Extraction and Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry 

Surfactants by LCMS- Instrument manufacturer's application
