Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS)

Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry is a user-friendly technology that combines High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with Mass Spectrometry (MS). It assists in therapeutic drug monitoring, detection of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM), estimation of 25-hydroxy Vitamin D, measurement of steroids, hormones, etc.

Facilities at the Newtown Clinic

All the tests are performed by well-trained staff members at the best liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry centre in New Town and Salt Lake to provide you the most precise results.

Pathology lab in kolkata

We have the most modern medical apparatus in terms of:

  • We conduct Newborn Screening (NBS) by the most sensitive and accurate method for NBS, LC-MS / MS, to detect more than 40 inborn metabolic disorders. NBS should be performed for babies upto 30 days of age (ideally within 3rd to 5th  day after birth)
  • LC-MS / MS is used for 25 Hydroxy Vitamin D (25OHD) analysis. This method is considered to be the Gold Standard and twofold more sensitive than conventional immunoassays for Vitamin D analysis. It can accurately quantitate both 25OHD forms i.e. 25OHD2 & 25OHD3 which are essential for diagnosis and monitoring of patients with vitamin D disorders
