Your Company Is Unlike Any Other ... So Let's Tell Everybody About You


As the only private-industry mass spectrometry lab located in southern Calif. offering high-resolution, accurate mass QToF and high-sensitivity Triple-Quad mass spectrometry services, Mass Spec Lab solves the most difficult chemical analytical challenges to help clients meet their tight development and regulatory timelines. The multiple mass spectrometry technologies provide customers with precise quantitative and chemical structural analysis to aid in the detection of leachables and extractables for biomedical devices, analysis of precursors, by-products, contaminants, and degradants in pharmaceuticals and biotech, and contaminants (e.g., pesticides), and degradants for extracts, cosmeceuticals, and personal care products.

Mass Spec Lab analysis procedures can identify unknown chemical species that are difficult to detect and characterize using conventional HPLC/UV or GC/MS techniques.  Often, detection limits down to part-per-billion (ppb) levels can be achieved.

“Uninterpretable, poorly-designed, or off-the-mark studies are not in our vocabulary," said Mass Spec Lab's Dr. Marie Dvorak Christ.  "With 60% of U.S. venture capital and more than 2,800 life science companies, the California biosciences community demands world-class technical resources.  In addition, product development is being increasingly outsourced - not only by “virtual” start-ups but also by bricks-and-mortar Forbes 500 companies.  That means that sophisticated analytical instrumentation, highly trained scientists, and a philosophy of services customized to each client’s individual needs are all essential for achieving successful results," Dr. Christ continued.  

"Rarely found outside big pharma, a Xevo G2-S QTof mass spectrometer (Waters) was selected as Mass Spec Lab’s flagship high-resolution MS/MS instrument because it provides both sensitive quantitation with unsurpassed capabilities in chemical identification and structural elucidation," Dr. Christ said.  "The Mass Spec Lab team of Ph.D. analysts and senior advisorshas the critical mass to address the problem core issues, effectively execute the devised analytical strategy, and meet our client's aggressive timelines,” Dr. Christ concluded.
