Our product Handheld Molecular Contaminants Screener (HMCS) is based on quadrupole mass spectrometry technology.
All atomic and molecular ions are, in principle, accessible by mass spectrometry (MS) through analysis of mass-to-charge ratios of ions, making it a universal method for chemical analysis. In the past decades MS analysis has been limited to a laboratory setting due the physical constraints of weight, size, and electrical power, but also due to the required expertise of the user. However, recently an increasing trend has moved MS away from the laboratory setting to an easy-to-use portable system. HMCS aims to out-perform previous single/multiple function portable mass spectrometer sensors with it's portability, increased sensitivity and user friendliness.
