Microsaic’s latest product innovation, the 4500 MiD®, has been featured in a mass spectrometry article in Nature Product Focus.
Designed to bring real-time mass detection to laboratories and processing facilities, Microsaic’s chip-based, miniaturized MS technology allows agile sample detection and identification at the point of use. Providing access to more detailed sample data at the point of need, the compact, easy to use MS systems enable operators to make faster, real-time decisions, optimizing overall
productivity. The newly released 4500 MiD® combines the vacuum system, electronics and computer inside one box. With no floor pump ever needed, it can be installed where no other MS can be easily deployed, all while retaining the performance of a conventional MS system. The addition of the Microsaic MiDas™ compact interface sampling module means the 4500 MiD® can be easily deployed in a large variety of on-line, at-line and off-line applications.
Featuring Microsaic’s three main patented chip-based technologies, the ionchip®, spraychip® and vac-chip™, the 4500 MiD® is reliable and user-friendly, with increased mass range, a completely tool-less front-end for enhanced control and an intuitive and robust user interface. A change in front-end alignment has also strengthened system uptime while reducing the deposition of contaminants downstream. Increasing the mass range to 1400 m/z, opens up a new range of applications, including peptide analysis. This application is ideal for the 4500 MiD®‘s efficient ESI source, and its strong propensity towards multiple charging.
Easy to operate and maintain, the Microsaic 4500 MiD® also offers reduced solvent, nitrogen and power consumption, reducing operating costs and providing a greener solution for mass detection.
