Mass spectrometry has become one of the most broadly used analytical tools leading to recent advances in biomedical research and development. It is an established method to support organic and pharmaceutical chemistry as well as materials science, environmental research, and forensic chemistry. It is characterized by its high sensitivity and speed. Although the discipline of mass spectrometry was born nearly a hundred years ago, it is just during the past several decades that it has grown into the indispensible tool that it is today. Indeed, over the last few years we have seen significant improvements in instrumentation enabling the study of more and more challenging problems and it is tempting to speculate how far mass spectrometry will take us in the future.
For this reason the Swedish Society for Mass Spectrometry will devote its Annual Symposium at the Nobel Forum at The Karolinska Institutet to “Advances in MS instrumentations”. This symposium will gather international and national leading scientists together with presentations from vendors in an informal format.
The symposium is held in the Wallenberg Hall at Nobel Forum.
