Title: TRANSFER TUBE CALIBRATION
Abstract:
Disclosed herein is a method comprising liberating analyte material from a sample and transferring the liberated analyte material towards an inlet of an ion analyser via a sampling or transfer tube (202). The presence of the analyte material is detected at a first position by a detector (203), and this detection may be used to determine a transit time for the analyte material through at least a part of said sampling or transfer tube (202). The detector (203) may be disposed within the sampling or transfer tube (202).
