Spectrometry is a widely used technique in analytical chemistry to identify the contents in a test sample with the help of interaction between mass and energy. There are three major types of spectrometry techniques, which are divided based on the method of analyzing the test sample: atomic spectrometry, mass spectrometry and molecular spectrometry.

Mass spectrometry is one of the most widely technique to analyze chemical contents in a sample based on mass-to-charge ratio of the ions. Mass spectrometry includes various technologies which include gas and liquid chromatography combined with mass spectrometry, matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI), time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS), quadrupole mass spectroscopy. In healthcare, mass spectroscopy is used to trace distribution of numerous biomolecules directly from tissue samples. The technique helps in analysis of peptides, proteins, pharmaceutical drugs and metabolites. Mass spectroscopy allows testing for multiple diseases using small amount of sample and also allows screening programs to be customize according to specific population which focuses on diseases most likely to be present in that population. Wide scope of applications has expanded mass spectroscopy market in healthcare sector.

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) combination systems provide quantitative analysis of the components along with mass spectrum. GC-MS systems find applications in pharmaceutical and chemical analysis, food and product safety, clinical and toxicology testing, and forensic and environmental studies. MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer uses a focused laser beam in the ultraviolet or infrared range to analyze solid samples in two stages: desorption of surface particles by laser beam and ionization of matrix (solvent). The technique is useful in clinical diagnostics, environmental and taxonomical...
