BRISTOL, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mass Spec Analytical announced today that its new Thermal Extraction Ion
Source for the Sciex™ 3200 Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer and other
V-Series models is now shipping to customers. The Mass Spec TEIS-3200 is
ideal for applications where the method requires a large quantity of
sample measurements in a relatively short period of time or where
automation is required. When coupled with Mass Spec Analytical’s
analysis software, results can be provided in as little as 4 seconds.
The TEIS-3200 uses Mass Spec's patented Thermal Extraction sample
introduction device. Compounds amenable to thermal desorption, such as
many pesticides, drugs and explosives, can be rapidly analysed in this
way without the need for any sample pre-treatment, solvents or glassware.
Dr. Richard Sleeman, Mass Spec Analytical Scientific Director explains:
“The TEIS-3200 is easy to use, reliable, uses few or no consumables and
is very fast. The thermal system liberates samples from a large surface
area, and so is ideal as a rapid screening method. Coupled with the
specificity afforded by a Sciex 3200 triple quadrupole mass
spectrometer, the overall system is able to provide real-time results to
a forensic standard.”
The Thermal Extraction Ion Source significantly speeds up workflow times
by 30% or more for processes where GCMS is normally used for analysis.
Much of the time saved is in the sample queue for analysis, which may be
overnight, but there are other savings: no solvents, no glassware, no
labelling of vials, no loading up the auto-sampler, no GC columns, no
special gases. An added benefit is that the lab would be in a position
to give virtually instantaneous results to their clients or colleagues
once the analysis is complete.
The analytical system has been peer reviewed by academics and government
agencies. Contact Mass Spec Analytical for further references and more
information. The TEIS-3200 is available to order now.
