Cold-spray ionisation mass spectrometry

Definition: A type of mass spectrometry where the sample is ionised by forcing a solution (usually in an organic solvent) of the sample through a small cold (10--80 C) capillary (at a flow rate of 1--10 L min1) into an electric field to produce a very fine mist of charged droplets.
