The power of mass detection delivered to the lab bench
Microsaic Systems, the high technology company developing, marketing and manufacturing next generation mass spectrometry (MS) instruments, will showcase its latest innovative products offering enhanced productivity and time and cost savings at PITTCON (booth 1051).
The new MiDas™ interface unit allows simple connectivity of Microsaic’s miniaturised mass detector, the 4000 MiD™, for on line and off line analysis. This represents a unique integrated solution for delivering main-stream MS analysis to the lab bench. MiDas allows for the simple deployment of mass detection in a large variety of real-time applications, offering automated sampling, dilution and injection for direct MS analysis at the lab bench or fume hood.
The world’s smallest MS system, the Microsaic 4000 MiD’s low operating cost and small footprint make the instrument deployable in a wide range of applications where MS has not previously been practical. The 4000 MiD fits comfortably into a standard lab fume hood, opening up further opportunities in the field of on-line reaction monitoring. Users are able to increase the use of MS in the laboratory, while benefiting from significant cost savings, owing to fewer necessary structural components such as gas generators and air conditioning. There are also sizeable savings with the use of ‘Plug and Play’ components which enable users to maintain the system themselves, resulting in less downtime and greater flexibility within the laboratory.
Colin Jump, CEO Microsaic Systems commented: “The launch of the MiDas integrated interface module adds to the flexibility of our successful 4000 MiD. We are now able to show users how our growing portfolio of innovative, unique chip-based technology can provide solutions to revolutionise workflow and productivity. We invite all visitors to PITTCON to booth 1051 to see how mainstream MS analysis can be delivered to the lab bench and improve their laboratory operations.”
