Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry for analysis of steroids in clinical laboratories

Chromatography was developed in Russia in 1906 by an Italian-born botanist named Mikhail Tswett (sometimes spelled Tsvet; 1872–1919), who used it for studying plant pigments such as chlorophyll. During the 20th century, chemists found chromatography was a superb technique for studying and separating all kinds of complex mixtures. It's now widely used in forensic science (for identifying samples taken from crime scenes), in pollution monitoring (for identifying small concentrations of unknown pollutants in air and water samples), and for studying complex mixtures in such things as food, perfume, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical production. One of chromatography's big advantages is that it works with tiny samples and low concentrations (particularly helpful when it comes to such things as forensic science and drug or pollution testing).
