LC-MS Method Development and Validation

Page View:

Drug discovery is the process of generating compounds and evaluating all their properties to determine the feasibility of selecting one new chemical entity (NCE) to become a safe and effective drug. Pharmaceutical companies are under ever-increasing pressure from both their business competition and the patient population to increase the rate of drug discovery.

(LC) Liquid Chromatography:

LC-MS Method, first what is LC? Chromatography is a separations method that relies on differences in partitioning behavior between a flowing mobile phase and a stationary phase to separate the components in a mixture.

A column holds the stationary phase and the mobile phase carries the sample through it.

Sample components that partition strongly into the stationary phase spend a greater amount of time in the column and are separated from components that stay predominantly in the mobile phase and pass through the column faster.

(MS) Mass Spectrometry:
Mass spectrometers use the difference in mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) of ionized compounds to separate them from each other.
Compounds have distinctive fragmentation patterns that provide structural information to specifically detect compounds.
