- Experimental LC/TOF-MS platforms equipped with a time-to-digital converter (TDC) give the best mass estimate for those mass signals with an intensity similar to that of the lock-mass used for internal calibration. However, they systematically underestimate the mass obtained at higher signal intensity and overestimate it at low signal intensities compared to that of the lock-mass. To compensate for these effects, specific tools are required for correction and automation of accurate mass calculations from LC/MS signals. Here, we present a computational procedure for the derivation of an intensity-dependent mass correction function.
