IMS, although having a great reputation, has had limited application in the pharmaceutical industry due to historic cost and performance limitations. Recognizing this, Excellims has evolved the technique into High Performance Ion Mobility Spectrometry (HPIMS), which addresses these legacy issues. Instruments based on HPIMS are now commonly being deployed for a range of applications such as GMP cleaning validation and process reaction monitoring.
This webinar introduces two HPIMS-based instruments as a GMP-compliant alternative to legacy methods or a range of applications in pharma. With HPIMS you can make automated liquid injections with the same electrospray ionization source technology as a mass spec system, get results with comparable resolution to HPLC in the speed of UV, all controlled by a 21 CFR part 11 compliant software package.
Before joining Excellims, Dave held several sales and sales management positions including Pion Inc., Gerstel, Pioneer Analytical, ThalesNano Inc., and Distek Inc. Dave has attained 16 years of success: growing territories, building sales teams, developing and launching products and serving as a business owner with executive management responsibility. While sales started out as a job, it has turned into Dave’s career and passion.
Dave has a BS in Chemistry from the College of the Holy Cross.
Outside of work, Dave spends most of his free time with his family, engaging in a range of outdoor activities such as fishing, golfing and skiing.
Ching has been working on all aspects of ion mobility spectrometry and mass spectrometry technology for over 25 years, from initial instrument design/product development to exploring new applications and business development. Before founding Excellims, he served as the Research Leader for GE Security's chem/bio and explosives detection business, he was responsible for many government funded and GE internal programs to support the business growth. He also served as Application Manager, managing a team of scientists and engineers, directly supporting business development and sales activities. Previously, Ching served as mass spectrometry Software Manager at Bruker Daltonics managing software development projects for Bruker’s time of flight mass spectrometer product lines.
He has both Ph.D. and MS degrees in Chemistry from Washington State University, an MS in Computer Science also from Washington State University, and an MS in Chemical Engineering from Yokohama National University.
Ching has authored more than 50 peer reviewed papers and patents/patent applications in ion mobility spectrometry and mass spectrometry field.
