Ion mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS), which combines high resolution mass spectrometry and high efficiency ion mobility based measurements and separations, offers food and environmental laboratories unique advantages for screening and profiling complex mixtures. The use of collision cross section (CCS) measurements in parallel with traditional parameters such as exact mass can increase targeted and non-targeted screening specificity. CCS values can be added into a Scientific Library within UNIFI and integrated into a routine screening workflow to allow them to be utilized to screen and confirm the presence of food and environmental contaminants, nutrients, flavor compounds, or any other molecules of interest.
