PHOTONIS USA Announces New High Mass BiPolar MALDI TOF Detector

Innovative New Design Eliminates Complexities

High Mass BiPolar MALDI TOF Detector

15 May, 2012

Sturbridge, MA - PHOTONIS USA, a leading electro-optic mass spectrometer component manufacturer, announces a new High Mass BiPolar Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time of Flight (MALDI-TOF) detector which improves the detection efficiency of very high mass ions with significantly less complexity when compared to other high-mass MALDI-TOF detection solutions. It will be on display at the PHOTONIS booth (#76) at the upcoming American Society of Mass Spectrometry Conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada from May 20-25.

The new PHOTONIS high mass MALDI-TOF detector features a large 250 mm2 collection area which allows for higher sensitivities without the need for higher post-acceleration voltage. The detector is comprised of a high-sensitivity microchannel plate, a high-speed scintillator, and a photomultiplier which can detect both positive and negative ions with 30 kV isolation. This innovative solution also features a gridless optic system that provides high sensitivity detection for masses in excess of 100 kDa. The compact shape and simplified detection system supports many high mass operating modes without the need to manipulate the detector through the ion beam.

PHOTONIS is a multinational high-technology group, with more than 40 years experience in manufacture, sales and innovation, specializing in photo sensor technology. The Group operates Internationally in the Night Vision, Industrial, Scientific and Medical Imaging markets. PHOTONIS USA designs and manufactures a wide range of custom and standard components and assemblies for mass spectroscopy as well as other medical, bio-medical and scientific instruments and holds several patents in these fields.
