Mass Spectrometry (MS) is an analytical technique that ionizes chemical species and sorts the ions based on their mass to charge ratio. A mass spectrum measures the masses within a sample. T3 Biosciences uses the MS for analyzing molecular and chemical elements of natural products (e.g. antibiotics) produced from the microbes identified from us from the natural environment. It is also used to evaluate the quality and purity of the compounds that we synthesized.
