Mass Spectrometry Hub

While mass spectrometry (mass spec) is a common basic research tool, over the last decade, the technology has become more widely adopted for use in diagnostic testing in the clinical setting. With new generations of technologies coming to market, clinical labs utilize mass spec in routine testing to improve the sensitivity and specificity of diagnostic testing, as e.g. disease screening or therapeutic drug monitoring that can provide labs with accurate results more rapidly than conventional mass spec solutions.


The technology behind:  

Mass spec is an analytical technique that measures the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) of molecules, such as e.g. small molecules and drugs, in a sample. 

  • Mass spec offers better sensitivity and specificity for identifying molecular structure of compounds compared to traditional methods.

  • By adopting mass spec automation, lab leaders can help improve patient management in multiple care areas, including endocrinological diseases and  therapeutic drug monitoring



In the following tabs you will find publications and congress material discussing the latest developments in Mass Spectrometry. In particular, data on therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM), vitamin D and steroids among others are presented. Please note that the discussed results derive from medical educational events, studies and publications with Roche involvement. In the future scientific content on drugs of abuse testing (DAT) and other analytes will be included.
