Short Abstract

Current method validation protocols and quality assurance programs may be insufficient to identify sample-specific interferences that contribute to erroneous results. In this 20 min session, examples will be provided to demonstrate how new approaches to quality assurance monitoring may be used to identify potentially inaccurate results. Learning objectives include: 1)Explain why LCMS/MS methods are not immune to sample-specific influences and review sources of sample-specific errors, 2)Explain concepts around cluster ion monitoring as an indicator of ionization effectiveness, 3)Show how cluster ion monitoring can be used as a QA monitor, 4)Participate in a 5 min brain storming session on ways to improve QA monitoring strategies.
