Targeted ion parking for the quantitation of biotherapeutic proteins: concepts and preliminary data.

Targeted ion parking (or TIPing) is the first quantitative application of ion/ion reactions for mass spectrometry. In TIPing, intact biotherapeutic proteins are electrosprayed as intact molecules (no digestion) and, as expected, many multiply protonated species are produced (e.g., (M + 7H)(7+), (M + 8H)(8+), etc.). Several of these multiply charged species… CONTINUE READING
