Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry

LCQ fleet Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer with Electrospray Ionizer

Our LCQ fleet ion trap mass spectrometer is equipped with a electrospray ionizer, which can be used to transform ions in solution into ions in gas phase. This technique enables the use of mass spectrometry with sample that would not be suitable for mass analysis, e.g. heat sensitive compounds or with high molecular weight. Furthermore, ESIMS is advantageous in retaining in the gas-phase important information from the solution-phase.
