The article offers information on the requirements and techniques for mass spectrometry (MS) sample preparations. Vivek Joshi, senior research scientist at EMD Millipore states that chromatography is considered as the first step in sample preparation. It mentions that atmospheric-pressure chemical ionization (APCI) is an effective MS technique. Andrew Tyler of PerkinElmer adds that APCI offers a direct analysis of organic molecules even without sample preparation.
