What's New with DART?
The latest developments and news on DART Mass Spectrometry

We will be at Pittcon next week, and hope you stop by if you are in Chicago.  Be one of the first to see our new SVP controller and nitrogen capable DART cartridge. 

Mention this email and we will put you in the running for an Apple iPOD touch, which incidentally is part of our exciting new product.

Please have a look and let us know if you have any questions or comments.  Thanks.

Sneak Peak at DART Developments

Next week will be announcing 2 new developments for DART technology.  The first is a real first for the industry - control the DART with and iPod.  Yes, listen to tunes and collect data at the same time.

The second is the ability to use nitrogen in the DART source.  We'll have more on this important development shortly.

Please let us know if you would like any additional information.
