    Abstract:

    The use of Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) is becoming more prevalent in clinical research laboratories throughout the world. This technology brings an additional level of versatility with the ability for simultaneous quantitative and qualitative analysis.  This session will include an introduction to LC-MS/MS for the clinical lab, encompassing both the technology and advantages.
     
    Learning Objectives:
    1. Describe both the LC and MS/MS componentry that together make up an LC-MS/MS system.
    2. Explain the theory of LC-MS/MS technology focusing on triple quadruple based systems.
    3. Discuss how specificity and sensitivity is afforded by LC-MS/MS.
    4. Summarize the laboratory requirements to implement LC-MS/MS technology.
