Guaranteed maximum sensitivity at all resolution settings and with all modes of ionization, routinely.
Take advantage of magnetic sector problem solving capabilities without accepting traditional compromises.
- One mass calibration is valid for all modes of operation.
- Forget about calibrating different mass ranges and scan speeds.
- Forget about calibrating each mode of ionization.
- Forget about drifting and unreliable mass assignments. The MAT 900 XP controls both the magnetic field and the electric field with 20 bit precision.
- The field control boards are self-calibrating for routine high resolution accuracy.
- Select automatic peak matching, electric scanning or magnetic scanning as your application demands.
- Accurate mass assignments in fully automated operation are routinely better than 2 ppm.
Once set, the mass resolution is valid over the full mass range with no mass dependent tuning, at all practical scan speeds.
Select the mode of ionization and the mode of sample introduction according to your application. Whether you need a dedicated workhorse running e.g. API for combinatorial chemistry, or a highly versatile research instrument with e.g. FAB or CI, it’s your choice. And if your requirements change, all options and inlet systems are field retrofittable.
Exchangeable ion volumes for EI, CI, FAB and FD/FI allow switching without venting. EI and CI volumes carry their dedicated filaments ensuring long-term usage.
The API interface connects to the standard ion source. Mounting is fast and easy. Switching between ESI, Micro-ESI and APCI does not require venting. The API interface is data system controlled, including autotune.
