IonSense Now Offering ASAP Technology


We have expanded our line of open-air mass spectrometry sources to now include
Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe or ASAP.  This relatively simple technique is easy to implement on your APCI mass spec and performs analysis in a manual, single sample format.  You can read the press release for details.

The technology was introduced several years ago and is very useful for quick analysis of chemical samples, much like the direct insertion probe, albeit without going into the vacuum.

If you would like more information on pricing and availability, please send me a note
DART for Food Safety

DART Food AbsractsWe were recently at the AOAC meeting in Florida and presented some new results on the rapid screening of food oils and nutritional foods using DART.  This poster shows DART providing fast info on these foods using the 3+D scanner and new Microwell sample plates.

We also have a new booklet of abstracts on the application of DART to food safety, authentication, residues and adulterants.  You can get a copy by just sending us a note.
