Interpretive Summary: New, faster methods have been developed for analysis of vitamin D and triacylglycerols that eliminate hours of wet chemistry and preparative chromatography, while providing more information than classical methods for analysis. Unprecedented detail is provided by combining liquid chromatography with the power of three or four mass spectrometers used simultaneously, in parallel, for definitive analysis of the vitamins and lipids in dietary supplements.
