Compact Devices For Point of Care Detection
When you need to know what is in your sample, whether that be human samples in a healthcare setting, or at a chemical research bench, you don’t want to wait for results to come back from the lab.
Bringing High Performance Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry to Critical Applications
Traditional integrated ion mobility MS instruments are operated under vacuum, therefore tied to a lab bench. Our compact, high performance, integrated ion mobility mass spectrometry device, combines ambient pressure high performance ion mobility technology with a patented intelligent vacuum system. The MC3100 is an integrated ion mobility-MS instrument with high ion mobility resolution and better than unit mass resolution in a small footprint, bringing the power of IMS out of the lab. Operators who need high quality chemical detection can now deploy it where it is needed most, for example at the point of care for clinical applications.
Be Confident: Detect the Previously Undetectable
For many applications, particularly for human samples in clinical diagnostics (for Research Use Only), samples are increasingly complex. Regardless, you need to quantify target molecules from among millions of others. The MC3100 separates and isolates the right compounds.
Traditional liquid or gas chromatography combined with mass spectrometry has limitations for practical application as point of care systems. HPIMS overcomes this. These traditional technologies separate molecules based on the molecular polarity or weight of the molecule. However, IMS can separate molecules from a different angle, the molecular size (collisional cross-section) which provides a powerful tool that is equal to, or better than an HPLC, to separate molecules in a complex mixture and let you detect what was previously undetectable in your samples.
Combining ambient pressure high performance ion mobility technology with patented intelligent vacuum system, MC3100 is an integrated ion mobility MS (IMS-MS) instrument with high ion mobility resolution and better than unit mass mass resolution in a small footprint, bringing the power of IMS-MS out of the lab.
Cost Effective High Performance IMS-MS Chemical Detection for Critical Applications
The benefits of coupling Ion Mobility with Mass Spectrometry are well known. Many new mass specs now integrate ion mobility technology into their instruments. At a price. However, none have also managed to produce a portable device for use outside the lab. With the MC3100, Excellims has succeeded in creating a sensitive detection device that is significantly cheaper than alternative technologies.
