MS Wish List
What development in mass spectrometry would you most like to see and why? We posed this question to a diverse group of MS users – here’s what they had to say.

My priorities would be affordability and accessibility. State-of-the-art MS instruments offer substantial advantages for understanding biological diseases and translating advances towards solving human health crises. Discoveries in this realm are made possible by large-scale proteomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics efforts, which rely heavily on MS instrumentation. Though there are many laboratories that have access to high-end MS instrumentation there are many more that do not because of the cost. I wish there were more centralized facilities that researchers could take advantage of to conduct high-throughput MS analyses at substantially reduced costs. Even better, if we can figure out how to manufacture these instruments in a way that reduces purchase costs, I envision many more laboratories worldwide with high-end MS instruments just steps away from their lab doors.
