We are very proud to announce that GenTech Scientific has been added to the family of IonSense's distributors.   They will now be selling the ASAP™ and ID-CUBE® Sources in the US and also will be providing complete ID-CUBE-equipped Mass Spectrometer systems in other countries.  If you are attending Pittcon, please come visit us in booth number 2557 or 3802 where these technologies will be highlighted.

IonSense is also excited to discuss with you our new DART®-QS Source that we just introduced this month at the AAFS meeting in Seattle.  It is fully enclosed to insure sample integrity and can automatically analyze 12 samples using the QuickStrip™ Sample Cards.  Take a look below for more information.

If you want reserve time at PitCon to discuss these and other interests you have, please feel free to contact me to setup a time.

Introducing Direct Sample Analysis with the New DART®-QS Source
The new DART-QS Source provides a protective environment for Direct Analysis in Real Time (DART) mass spectrometry of a range of materials from drugs of abuse to adulterated products, and also supports the analysis of total unknowns. Both qualitative and quantitative results can be obtained in as little as 10 seconds per sample, providing rapid feedback, and alleviating backlogs.
  • Automated direct sample analysis of up to 12 samples with disposable QuickStrip™ Sample Cards
  • Enclosed source minimizes environmental exposure
  • DART Ionization for low noise and fewer background ions
  • DART with either nitrogen or helium expanding the range of detectable compounds
  • Rapid analysis for Forensics and Food Safety

Using the QuickStrip Sample Cards is simple and insures that no cross -contamination occurs. The twelve sample positions can be loaded automatically or manually, including standards for quantitation. QuickStrips are available in packages of 50 permitting 600 measurements per box.

The DART-QS source is only available for Thermo instruments at this time.

If you or an associate would like us to analyze a few samples with the DART-QS on our Thermo EXACTIVE+, please contact Jeff Zonderman directly for information or a discussion.

About IonSense
IonSense, Inc. provides OpenSpot Mass Spectrometry™ solutions to the fields of food safety, forensics, drug development, and chemical analysis. We manufacture and develop direct analysis in real time (DART®) technology licensed from JEOL USA, Inc. and atmospheric solids analysis probe (ASAP™) licensed from M&M Consulting.

DART and ASAP Sources are available for most commercial LC/MS systems.  Look here to see if your system is DART-ready.  And  check here to see if your system is ASAP-ready.
