A mobility plug-in for mass spectrometers which enables a high speed, pre-filtration stage for liquid and gas samples.
The Mobility Front End has been designed for users of MS in the search of greatest levels of selectivity or in applications where a quantitative measure of analyte cross section is needed.
Advantages and Features
- High resolution (>50)
- Lowest limits of detection available (1ppq for TNT)
- Compelling advantages for the analysis of polymers (specially at moderate and high molecular masses) and bio-molecules (true linear mobility delivered).
- Reduced sampling time due to higher sensitivity.
- Accomplishment of measurements in real time (seconds to minutes depending on the application).
- Complex samples can be thoroughly analyzed (including discovery mode) through a 2D mass-mobility analysis.
- High versatility: the Front End can be disassembled at any time and leave the MS as a stand alone.
- Plug in/out to/from your MS in 5 minutes.
- Robust, highly engineered construction, featuring mirror polishing, micro-slots and full thermal control for the maximum standard of reliability.
- Full support and maintenance from SEADM.
- Ion mobility measured as sprayed at atmospheric pressure without any activation.
- And still at a fraction of the cost of commercial IMS-MS systems!!
Detection limit in pg for selected dioxins and furans obtained with SEADM’s equipment (using APPI ionization method and a AB Sciex 3200 QTrap MS) compared with the High resolution gas chromatography / High resolution mass spectrometry (HRGC/HRMS) method applied by The National Dioxin Air Monitoring Network (NDAMN, U.S.A.) in accordance to EPA Method 1613.
