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.
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 polarity or molecular 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, the MC3100 is a integrated ion mobility MS (IMS-MS) instrument with high ion mobility resolution and better than unit mass resolution in a small footprint, bringing the power of IMS-MS out of the lab.
