The article offers the insights of several mass spectrometry (MS) specialists such as Andrew Tyler, Tom Szarzynski, and Erik Hansen on the challenges of using mass spectrometers on MS laboratories. Tyler states that MS instrument management has become decentralized. Szarzynski says that the accidental effects of instrument stability and sensitivity are the issues that affect instrument service. Hansen adds that the cost of ownership should have to be regarded as MS demands care and maintenance.
