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

We will be at Pittcon next week and hope you'll stop by if you are in Orlando.  Be one of the first to see our new 3+D Scanner for the DART®-SVP Source.

We are also offering a limited number of DART sources at a new low price.  More info is below.

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

NEW >> DART 3+D Scanner

We introduced our new 3+D Scanner today.  It is interfaced to the DART-SVP open-air ionization source and enables rapid mass spectrometry analysis of chemicals on surfaces such as:
  • food
  • packaging materials
  • fabrics
  • consumer products
  • electrical components
  • wafers 
Automated surface analysis of can be accomplished without placing the sample under high vacuum as in traditional surface analysis. The Apple®iPod-based controller directs the analysis of the entire surface for uniformity or allows you to choose specific locations thus, enabling rapid characterization of contaminants with no sample preparation. 

Please contact us if you would like additional information.

DART100 w SVP We know that the economy is rough so we are doing something about it!

This past year we introduced the DART®-SVP. Since that time a number of our existing customers have chosen to upgrade and we are left with a number of systems. We have now refurbished these DART 100 sources and are now offering them for sale with our new SVP controller. All systems come with a 12 month warranty. These units are available for a limited time at a significant discount from our original source so please call or email an inquiry for details.

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