Tandem mass spectrometry in time
Tandem mass spectrometry procedure in which product ion spectra are recorded in a single m/z analyzer (such as a Paul ion trap, linear ion trap, or Fourier transform-ion cyclotron resonance-mass spectrometer) in discrete steps over time. Ions in a specific m/z range are selected, dissociated, and the product ions analyzed sequentially in time.
Note: Mass spectrometers that can perform tandem mass spectrometry in time can also perform MSn.
