Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

78 Scopus citations


MS has been successfully applied to nearly every area of biology. A largely unheralded reason for this success is improvements in the design and performance of mass analyzers, particularly time-of-flight mass spectrometers. Robert J. Cotter of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine describes several of these improvements, including reflectrons, orthogonal injection, and hybrid TOF instruments, as well as progress made in instrument miniaturization.
