    Mass spectrometry is approaching its first 100 years of being one of the most universal, versatile, and sensitive methods of analysis. It is the fastest-growing analytical technique of this decade, based on the great variety of detectors and their combination. It is an essential tool in the life sciences, where new high-resolution instrumentation, interfaces, and mass ranges have been reached. J. J. Thomson, almost a century ago, stated that this would be a technique that would resolve analytical problems with far more sensitivity and ease of use; this seems to be now an unarguable statement.
