Factors influencing in-source collision-induced dissociation (ESI/CID) of organic molecules in a Perkin-Elmer/SCIEX ionspray source have been investigated. Breakdown curves of four drugs and organic compounds were acquired by monitoring the intensities of MH+ and specific fragment ions while ramping the orifice voltage. Haloperidol, diazepam,(More)
A mass spectra (MS) library using in-source collision induced dissociation (ESI-CID) as well as a tandem-mass spectra (MS-MS) library with product ion spectra of drugs has recently been developed with a triple-quadrupole ionspray mass spectrometer [1,2]. For the ESI-CID MS library, single-quadrupole mode and for the MS-MS library triple-quadrupole mode have(More)
A fast analytical approach for the simultaneous quantitative screening for illicit drugs in serum and urine without tedious chromatographic separation steps was developed by combining solid-phase extraction (SPE) followed by flow-injection analysis (FIA) with ionspray-ionization and tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS) detection using a PE Sciex API 300(More)
Tuning compounds for positive and negative electrospray ionization (ESI) were tested for the tuning of in-source collision-induced dissociation (ESI/CID) with three types of SCIEX API instruments (API 365, 2000 and 3000) in the single-quadrupole mode. The vacuum interfaces of these instruments differ slightly in geometry, but the principles of ionization(More)
