IFCC TF-YS Educational WebinarIn this exciting session, designed for beginners and experts in the field of clinical mass spectrometry, attendees will first be introduced to mass spectrometry and how it made its way into clinical laboratories. We will then review the current status of automation for liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and how that is improving its access to more clinical laboratories. Finally, we explore emerging applications for breath analysis of volatile compounds, and its potential role in the detection of COVID-19.
