    Prescription for Mass Spec in the Clinic

    When most life scientists think of mass spectrometry, their minds likely wander into the ‘omics arena. After all, proteomics and metabolomics—not to mention glycomics and lipidomics—are largely driven by increasingly powerful and sophisticated mass spectrometers. Sporting high resolution and high mass accuracy, these finely tuned research instruments enable researchers to pin down subtle molecular differences between, say, normal and diseased tissues, and thus identify potential biomarkers. Yet mass spectrometry is not reserved for research laboratories. Clinical labs use the technique as well, to quantify medically informative molecular species. In that sense, mass spec functions as a highly multiplexed alternative to immunoassays, only without the antibodies and associated risk of cross-reactivity, says Jim Langridge, director of health sciences at Waters. But the questions these labs ask also are fundamentally different from basic-research mass spectrometry, and so, therefore, is their hardware.
