FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – San Jose, CA – BaySpec, Inc., a leading manufacturer of miniaturized analytical instrumentation, announces the Portability™, a portable mass spectrometer offering highly sensitive detection in a transportable size weighing less than 17 lbs. (7.7 kg.).
Transportable/Portable Mass Spec-based Chemical Analysis
Mass Spectroscopy (MS) has long been accepted as the gold standard for chemical analysis with respect to selectivity, detection limits and broad applicability. To date, MS has been primarily used as a lab-based instrument weighing typically 100~500 lbs and requiring heavy vacuum pumping stations and dedicated power supply.
BaySpec’s innovative approach to field-portable instrumentation utilizes a novel mass analyzer design to develop a highly portable MS for the purpose of for rapid chemical detection (1~5 seconds) of unknown substances with high selectivity and sensitivity (ppb level). The intuitive software interface includes built-in supports for library searching and reporting.
Instead of bringing samples back to the laboratory, detection, identification, and analysis can be completed in the field. No need to wait for answers.
Ambient desorption ionization ms (ADI-MS) compatible
Fast analysis time and data reporting 1~5 seconds
Detection of positive and negative ions
Low ppb level detection
Can operate in the field on battery power and/or 24V, 12V
By combining different sample collection systems, a wide range of chemical compounds can be detected, i.e. explosives, narcotics, CWAs, TICs, pesticides, etc.
The Portability™’s compact size and low power consumption allows for use of mass spectrometry on industrial production lines, as continuous monitors in waste sites, at airport checkpoints, physicians’ offices, and even in the office or family homes.
The Portability™ Mass Spectrometer will be demonstrated at the SciX FACSS Conference, Sept. 28- Oct. 3, 2014. To schedule a demonstration or meeting, please contact BaySpec at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1(408)512-5928.
BaySpec, Inc., founded in 1999 with 100% manufacturing in the USA (San Jose, CA), is a vertically integrated spectral sensing company.
