In 2019 the number of analyses was the highest in the last five years and represents the highest number of analyses per sample ever. This is mainly due to the nature of the studies performed, like the determination of isotope ratio in labeled compounds or studies on the influence of the injection solvent in labile analytes.

During 2019, the use of the coldspray ionization device also increased compared to 2018. Up to 39 different samples were analyzed using this ionization method, resulting in excellent results for the study of reaction mechanisms and characterization of a wide variety of organometallics complexes based on Co, Cu, Fe, Au, Ag.


2019 MS analysis: ionization methods required
