Mass spec is use to further confirm your sample analyzed. Mass

spectroscopy breaks down the sample into its components. It does

this by bombarding the molecule with some type of particle (either

alpha or beta... or i may be way off). This will break down the

sample into certain weights. The mass spec will tells you these

molecular wieghts. On your software that you have you will see the

molecular wieghts on a graph. You then can compare it to the

library you have to see if your sample is actually the sample you

say it is.
