Liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS)
Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) has seen enormous growth in clinical laboratories during the last 10-15 years. It offers analytical specificity superior to that of immunoassays or conventional high performance/pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) for low molecular weight analytes and has higher throughput than gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
On 1st August 2014 N Health will be ready to open this Vitamin D test with LC-MS/MS
N Health offers a new Vitamin D test using LC-MS/MS method which can report the exact amount of both forms of Vitamin D; Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3. By applying Mass Spectrometer as a detector, the masses of each vitamin form are detected directly; therefore, this method has 100% specificity and is admitted as a Gold standard Method for Vitamin D.
