Mass calibration
Means of determining m/z values of ions from experimentally detected signals using a theoretical or empirical relational equation.
Note: Most commonly this is accomplished using a computer-based data system and a calibration file obtained from a mass spectrum of a compound that produces ions of known m/z values.
