DRAFT DEFINITION
MS/MS in space

A tandem mass spectrometry method in which product ion spectra are recorded in m/z analyzers separated in space. Specific m/z separation functions are designed such that in one section of the instrument ions are selected, dissociated in an intermediate region, and the product ions are then transmitted to another analyser for m/z separation and data acquisition.

Considered between 2004 and 2006 but not included in the 2006 PAC submission
