Application Note: Lenses or No Lenses? A Study of Ion Transfer Efficiency at Interfaces in a Lens-free Triple Quadrupole MS
18 April 2012

This application brief explores the industries first lens-free GC-MS - the Bruker SCION TQ. The radio-frequency only interface is shown to be simpler to tune and more robust than a lens-based interface, it also provides significantly higher ion transfer efficiency, with greater overall sensitivity.
