Performance Specifications
   Mass Range:       A measure of the atomic mass range detected by the spectrometer in Atomic Mass Units. It may also be measured in Daltons. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Resolution (m/dm):       Resolution is the ratio of the mass divided by the change in mass over the area of two peaks. (m/dm) 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Mass Accuracy:         
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Mass Spectrum:       Mass spectrum is obtained when ions (usually in a beam) are separated according to the mass-to-charge (m/z) ratios of the ionic species present. This plot is a graphical representation of m/z values versus measured ion abundance information. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.

Mass Spectrometer
   Mass Analyzer Design:      The part of the spectrometer that analyzes the process by which a mixture of ionic species is separated according to the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z). The analysis may be qualitative and/or quantitative.
   Your choices are...         
   Time of Flight (TOF)       Time of Flight (TOF) instruments utilize the times taken by ions to pass (fly) along an evacuated tube as a means of measuring m/z values and therefore of obtaining a mass spectrum. 
   Quadrupole       Quadrupole mass spectrometers consist of an ion source; ion optics to accelerate and focus the ions through an aperture into the quadrupole filter; the quadrupole filter itself, with control voltage supplies; an exit aperture, an ion detector, detection electronics, and a high-vacuum system. 
   Ion Trap       Ion-trap mass spectrometers use three electrodes to trap ions in a small volume. The advantages of the ion-trap mass spectrometer include compact size and the ability to trap and accumulate ions to increase the signal-to-noise ratio of a measurement. 
   Fourier Transform Cyclotron Resonance (FT-ICR)       Fourier-transform mass spectrometry takes advantage of ion-cyclotron resonance to select and detect ions. 
   Magnetic Sector Analysis       With single focusing analyzers, a circular beam path of 180, 90, or 60 degrees can be used. The various forces influencing the particle separate ions with different mass-to-charge ratios. In double focusing analyzers, an electrostatic analyzer is added to separate particles with difference in kinetic energies. 
   Other Type       Other unlisted, specialty or proprietary Mass Analyzer Design. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Ionization Method:       
   Your choices are...         
   Electrospray Ionization (ESI)       The electrospray ionization (ESI) source consists of a very fine needle and a series of skimmers. A sample solution is sprayed into the source chamber to form droplets. The droplets carry charge when the exit the capillary, and as the solvent evaporates, the droplets disappear leaving highly-charged analyte molecules. ESI is particularly useful for large biological molecules that are difficult to vaporize or ionize. 
   Fast Atom Bombardment (FAB)       In fast atom bombardment (FAB), a high-energy beam of neutral atoms, typically Xe or Ar, strikes a solid or low-vapor-pressure liquid sample causing desorption and ionization. It is used for large biological molecules that are difficult to get into the gas phase. The sample is usually dispersed in a matrix such as glycerol. FAB causes little fragmentation and usually gives a large molecular ion peak, making it useful for molecular weight determination. 
   Electron Impact Ionization (EI)       Electron impact ionization (EI) source uses an electron beam, usually generated from a tungsten filament, to ionize gas-phase atoms or molecules. An electron from the beam knocks an electron off of analyte atoms or molecules to create ions. 
   Matrix-assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization (MALDI)       Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) is a LIMS method of vaporizing and ionizing large biological molecules, such as proteins or DNA fragments. The biological molecules are dispersed in a solid matrix such as nicotinic acid or dihydroxybenzoic acid. A UV laser pulse ablates the matrix that carries some of the large molecules into the gas phase in an ionized form so they can be extracted into a mass spectrometer. 
   Other Method       Other unlisted, specialty or proprietary Ionization Method. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Detector Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Channeltron       A channeltron is a horn-shaped, continuous dynode structure that is coated on the inside with an electron-emissive material. An ion striking the channeltron creates secondary electrons that have an avalanche effect to create more secondary electrons and finally a current pulse. 
   Daly Detector       A Daly detector consists of a metal knob that emits secondary electrons when struck by an ion. The secondary electrons are accelerated onto a scintillator that produces light that is then detected by a photomultiplier tube. 
   Electron Multiplier Tube (EMT)       Electron multiplier tubes (EMT) are similar in design to photomultiplier-tubes. They consist of a series of biased dynodes that eject secondary electrons when they are struck by an ion. They therefore multiply the ion current and can be used in analog or digital mode. 
   Faraday Cup       A Faraday cup is a metal cup that is placed in the path of the ion beam. It is attached to an electrometer, which measures the ion-beam current. Since a Faraday cup can only be used in an analog mode, it is less sensitive than other detectors that are capable of operating in pulse-counting mode. 
   Microchannel Plate       A microchannel plate (MCP) consists of an array of glass capillaries (10-25 µm inner diameters) that are coated on the inside with an electron-emissive material. The capillaries are biased at a high voltage and like the channeltron, an ion that strikes the inside wall one of the capillaries creates an avalanche of secondary electrons. This cascading effect creates a gain of 103 to 104 and produces a current pulse at the output. 
   Other Detector       Other unlisted, specialty or proprietary Detector Type.
