Drug discovery in HD: Oxford spinoff's mass spectrometry approach scores fresh funding
The technology used to detect explosives at airports — mass spectrometry — is being piloted as an engine for drug discovery.
Mass spectrometry is a tool designed to measure with profound accuracy the mass of a single molecule. Typically, mass spectrometers can be used to identify unknown compounds, to quantify known compounds, and to determine the structure and chemical properties of molecules.
