Novel ionization processes provide gas-phase ions of a wide variety of materials using MS. These simple and sensitive methods operate from solution or a solid matrix. Both manual and automated platforms are described that allow rapid switching between the ionization methods of MAI, SAI, vSAI, and conventional ESI.

A fully automated process for online peak fractionation and reduction of therapeutic antibodies with subsequent QTOF-MS characterization is presented. The technique is based on state-of-the-art 2D-HPLC technology coupled with additional HPLC modules via a dedicated software macro.

A novel “dilute-and-shoot” LC–MS/MS method is described for the analysis of “bath salts” sold as “legal” highs, including mitragynine and nine synthetic cathinones, in urine.
