In mass spectrometry, high-accuracy, high-resolution sample analysis correlates closely with high-performance high voltage. High voltage not only plays a critical role in the ion creation and acceleration phase, but all the way through separation, detection, measurement, and analysis. Performance failure at any phase could jeopardize the entire sample run.

This presentation covers mission-critical high voltage for mass spectrometry systems. Attendees will review high voltage fundamentals and learn why careful consideration of the internal high voltage source ensures electrical system integrity. The presentation will also explain how to significantly improve accuracy and resolution by correctly matching a high voltage system with the task at hand.
