MS/MS Sensitivity, Electrospray Ionization (ESI) â€“
A loop injection of 2 Î¼L of a 1 pg/Î¼L solution of reserpine, with a flow of 400 Î¼L/min of 50% water and 50% isopropyl alcohol will result in a minimal signal-to-noise ratio of 100 to1 (when looking at the transition of the isolated protonated molecular ion at m/z 609 to the largest two product ions, 397 and 448, when the spectrometer is operated at unit resolution in the MS/MS full-scan mode.)
Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization (APCI) â€“ A loop injection of 2 Î¼L of a solution containing 1 pg/Î¼L of reserpine (2 picograms,3.28 picomoles total sample) with a flow rate of 400 Î¼L/min of 50% water and 50% isopropyl alcohol can produce a minimal signal-to-noise ratio of 100 to1 (when looking at the transition of the isolated protonated molecular ion at m/z 609 to the largest two product ions, 397 and 448, when the spectrometer is operated at unit resolution in the MS/MS full-scan mode.)
