Mass Spectrometry is an analytical technique that ionizes chemical species and separates the ions based on their mass to charge ratio. In order to measure the characteristics of individual molecules, a mass spectrometer converts them to ions so that they can be moved about and manipulated by external electric and magnetic fields. Mass spectrometry has been enhanced with advanced features related the fields in science and medical analysis. Of the various sorts of explanatory methods utilized as a part of drug discovery and advancement, mass spectrometry (MS) has turned out to be a standout amongst the most capable apparatuses for the investigations of an extensive variety of concoction and natural substances. A mass spectrum is a plot of the ion signal as a function of the mass-to-charge ratio. These spectra are used to determine the elemental or isotopic signature of a sample, the masses of particles and of molecules, and to elucidate the chemical structures of molecules, such as peptides and other chemical compounds

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is a form of column chromatography that pumps a sample mixture or analyte in a solvent (known as the mobile phase) at high pressure through a column with Chromatographic packing material (stationary phase). The sample is carried by a moving carrier gas stream of helium or nitrogen. HPLC is used in a variety of industrial and scientific applications, such as Pharmaceutical, environmental, forensics, and chemicals.

            Main components in an HPLC system include the solvent reservoir, or multiple reservoirs, a high-pressure pump, a column, injector system and the detector.

Gas chromatography (GC) uses a gaseous mobile phase such as helium or hydrogen to push molecules through a column that serves as the stationary phase. The most common type of Mass Spectrometer (MS) associated with a Gas chromatography (GC) is the quadrupole Mass Spectrometer. GC is predominantly limited to volatile, heat-stable compounds lacking polar functional groups; however, chemical modification with derivatizing agents allows for functional groups to be masked, producing less polar, GC-compatible compounds. Gas Chromotography is the method most often used for comprehensive drug screening in the clinical laboratory using a combination of GC and Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS).

Tandem mass spectrometry, also known as MS/MS or MS2, involves multiple steps of Mass Spectrometry selection, with some form of fragmentation occurring in between the stages. In a Tandem mass spectrometer, ions are formed in the ion source and separated by mass-to-charge ratio in the first stage of Mass spectrometry. A common tandem Mass Spectrometry (MS/MS) analyzer will have 3 quadrupoles, denoted Q1, q2, and Q3. Q1 and Q3 are true Mass Analyzers using combinations of voltages and frequencies as described. There are various methods for fragmenting molecules for Tandem MS, including collision-induced dissociation (CID), electron capture dissociation (ECD), infrared multiphoton dissociation (IRMPD) and Blackbody Infrared Radiative Dissociation (BIRD)

Mass spectrometry is used commonly in forensic laboratories for the confirmation of drugs and identification of ignitable liquids. Mass spectroscopy, also called mass spectrometry, is a scientific method that analyzes a sample of material to determine its molecular makeup. By ionizing a sample, a scientist can cause it to separate into its individual ions. Mass spectrometry has become a valuable tool in forensic science, where it can provide clues from the barest traces left by a suspect. Mass spectrometry is also useful in analyzing trace evidence.

Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) is a powerful tool for the end-group analysis of synthetic polymers. The ESI process is particularly soft, by which macromolecules can be subjected to mass spectrometric analysis without fragmentation and even loosely bound end-group functionalities may fully be retained in the ionized molecule. This favorable feature is exploited for the detailed study of the initiation process in radical polymerization, where the spectrum of radicals that add to monomer remains as an imprint in the final polymeric material.
