  • Patent number: 10890562
    Abstract: Under the control of an analysis control unit (5), a mass spectrometer unit (2) performs a product-ion scan measurement for a target component in a target sample within a time range where the component is introduced. It also performs a scan measurement over an m/z range including the m/z of an ion originating from a standard component within the same segment of time. A mass correction information calculator (42) calculates mass correction information from measured and theoretical values of the m/z of the ion originating from the standard component observed on an MS spectrum obtained by the scan measurement. Using the mass correction information, a mass corrector (43) corrects the m/z of each ion peak originating from the target component observed on an MS/MS spectrum obtained by the product-ion scan measurement performed within the same cycle as the scan measurement concerned.
