The establishment of EVISA is funded by the EU through
the Fifth Framework Programme (G7RT- CT- 2002- 05112).
Supporters of EVISA includes:
fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry (FAB/MS)
A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of a wide
range of biomolecules, such as glycoalkaloids, glycoproteins,
polysaccharides, and peptides. Positive and negative fast atom
bombardment spectra are recorded on a mass spectrometer fitted with an
atom gun with xenon as the customary beam. The mass spectra obtained
contain molecular weight recognition as well as sequence information.
