the 23rd Analytica Conference in Munich, Germany, PerkinElmer, Inc.
announced that it will be showcasing several analytical solutions for
environmental, food, pharmaceutical and forensic applications, including
the new AxION Direct Sample Analysis (DSA) system.
The AxION DSA system represents a technological breakthrough that eliminates sample preparation steps in addition to the need for front-end gas or liquid chromatography separation, as samples can be directly introduced to a mass spectrometer. This allows for faster and greatly simplified analysis, helping lead to faster decisions. With the AxION DSA system, sample prep time is now reduced to twenty-five seconds – down from twenty-five minutes. Designed to introduce samples to PerkinElmer’s AxION Time-of-Flight (TOF) mass spectrometer, the complete integrated system allows for the direct analysis of liquid, solid and gas samples.
The system was designed with productivity and flexibility in mind, providing for sample analysis in seconds and a seamless switch from a DSA to a liquid chromatography system in less than two minutes.
The integrated AxION DSA system is entirely enclosed to prevent atmospheric contamination of samples, ensuring exceptional sensitivity, and fully automated for fast data acquisition.
