Matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) is a mass spectrometry technique using a soft ionization process to analyze samples which may otherwise be fragmented. The MALDI technique is often paired with a time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometer due to its ability to provide a “pulsed” sample. The detectors which Photonis provides for these instruments increase sample throughput and provide superior gain for end analysis.
Photonis designs a variety of detectors, as outlined below, which can be used in these applications to perform more accurate testing.
DID YOU KNOW…?
Photonis manufactures more than just electron multipliers for mass spectrometers. We also manufacture drift tubes, capillary inlet tubes, and reflectrons, all made from our patented Resistive Glass technology. These superior glass products are able to effectively guide ions from the source to the detector.
