Representative Mass Spectra from Candida Species.

Representative mass spectra, after background subtraction, mass drift correction, and removal of lock mass compound peak (≈554 m/z), of C. parapsilosis, C. albicans, and C. glabrata are shown. Major mass spectral features are labelled, such as the fatty acid and lipid mass regions, and also the isomer, dimer, and trimer peaks of the lock mass compound used for mass drift correction. For all three Candida species shown, peaks within the lipid region (600 to 1000 m/z) show the highest signal intensity.
