The 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style indicates that slashes are most commonly used to indicate alternatives in the "and/or" formulation, for example "Hercules/Heracles."(CMOS 6.104) The CMOS also indicates that the slash is occasionally use to indicate "and" as in "Jekyll/Hyde." The "per" and "divided" by meanings are also noted.

Chapter 10 of the ACS Style Guide[http://pubs.acs.org/isbn/9780841239999] discusses editorial style including the use of hyphens and abbreviations.
 
 
 
Specific rules for combined methods are not given, but there are several examples in a list of abbreviations use space, no space, hyphen, en-dash, or slash. Surprisingly, neither GC-MS nor LC-
 
 
 
and CP MAS are also indicated. Other examples are fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry (FABMS), Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR, FT/IR, FT-IR, and FT IR), glow discharge mass spectrometry (GDMS), high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS), isotope dilution mass spectrometry (IDMS), isotopic ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS), laser desorption mass spectrometry (LDMS), matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass
 
spectrometry (MALDI--of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS TOF MS), triple-quadrupole mass spectrometry (TQMS).
 
 
 
==American Institute of Physics Style Manual==
 
The AIP style manual uses the hyphen exclusively for combined terms.[http://www.aip.org/pubservs/style/4thed/toc.html]
 
 
 
==Mass Spectrometry Desk Reference==
 
David Sparkman in his [[Mass Spectrometry Desk Reference]] recommends the use of the slash to indicate the combination of techniques and the hyphen to indicate the combination of instruments. Thus
 
 
 
:Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS)
 
:Gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GC-MS)
