Two-dimensional Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (2D FT-ICR MS), developed in the 1980s, links the mass-to-charge ratios of precursors and fragments in complex samples. Compared to tandem mass spectrometry, 2D FT-ICR MS does not require isolated precursors and shows better resolution. Its applications have been limited, however, due to a lack of sophisticated computers.
