As vitamins can either not be synthesized in the body at all or not be adequately synthesized, animals unable to intake vitamins from food will suffer impairment. Vitamins can be broadly divided into water-soluble vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins (Vitamins A, D, E, K). This example shows the LC/MS atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) analysis of a low-polarity compound, vitamin D3.
The newly designed interface and ion optical system achieve high sensitivity and high stability. This best-in-class liquid chromatograph mass spectrometer provides full support functions for photodiode array detectors and offers a multi-sequence mode that can analyze data with a single sample injection using various analysis conditions.
