This presentation will focus on the use of Inductively-Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry as an alternative technology for measuring thyroid hormones. Existing methods using LC-MS/MS suffer from matrix interference and require expensive and laborious sample preparation methods in order to reduce the impact on instrumentation. ICP-MS is a robust and specific method that is often underappreciated outside of the area of elemental analysis. This presentation will discuss the pros and cons of using LC-ICP-MS for the analysis of thyroid hormones.
