The DART-QS source is compatible with Thermo Scientific mass spectrometers that normally use the Thermo Scientific™ Ion Max™ source, including:
- Thermo Scientific Exactive-series Orbitrap mass spectrometers
- Thermo Scientific Q Exactive-series hybrid quadrupole-Orbitrap mass spectrometers
- Thermo Scientific TSQ-series triple quadrupole mass spectrometers
- Thermo Scientific hybrid ion trap-Orbitrap mass spectrometers
The compact VAPUR™ interface makes it easy to install and remove the DART-QS source from your Thermo Scientific MS.
Fast and easy to operate
DART mass spectrometry provides near-instantaneous analysis; qualitative and quantitative data can be obtained in as little as 10 seconds per sample. In the DART-QS source, samples are introduced on low-cost, disposable QuickStrip cards that hold a combination of up to 12 samples or quantitation and reference standards. The easy-to-open enclosure allows insertion of QuickStrip cards in seconds. All samples and standards on a card can be analyzed in a single, automated run. QuickStrips are available in packages of 50, permitting 600 measurements per box.
Greater compound coverage
The DART-QS source is compatible with helium and nitrogen gas, expanding the range of detectable compounds. When coupled with sensitive mass spectrometry, particularly high-resolution MS, confident identification and quantitation of food contaminants and drugs of abuse can be achieved.
Enclosed to limit cross-contamination
The DART-QS source is the first commercial DART source with an enclosed ionization region. The closed sampling region minimizes environmental exposure, maintaining sample integrity and minimizing potential cross contamination.
DART ionization gives near-instantaneous results without the use of LC solvents, dramatically reducing the hazardous waste stream common to LC-MS analyses.
