Mass spectrometry is perhaps the key core methodology for proteomics, and the quadrupole mass analyzer is currently the most widely used mass analyzer in proteomic applications of mass spectrometry. The theory of quadrupole mass analyzers (and of the related quadrupole and multipole devices used to confine and transmit beams of ions into and between mass analyzers) can lend valuable insight into practical considerations for effective use of mass spectrometry.
