Medical Applications of Mass Spectrometry

Karoly Vekey

Chemical Research Center, Budapest, Hungary

In the last two decades the gap between life sciences and natural sciences started to close. A good example is the use of advanced chemical and physical instrumentation both in medical research and in clinical practice. Mass spectrometry is and advanced tool in analytical chemistry. It is used to determine the structure of molecules, to analyze trace level components and, in general, both to identify and to quantify various components of complex mixtures. These capabilities make it an ideal tool to study the molecular composition of biological matrices. A prime field of application is medicinal research, where mass spectrometry can help unravel the mechanism of various diseases at the molecular level, and can be used for clinical purposes as well, like early diagnosis.
