On 8 January 2007, a team led by the University of California at Santa Barbara was selected by NASA for delivery of the Mars Organic Molecule Analyzer (MOMA). Intended for the European Space Agency ExoMars mission in 2013, MOMA will analyze organic molecular signatures and the environment in which they exist. SESI’s contribution will be delivery of a specialized AP/MALDI mass spectrometry ion source and miniature tandem Mass Spectrometer. (NASA press release)
On 19 September 2006, SESI was awarded a $4.0M contract by the US Army RDECOM Acquisition Center under the Joint PEO for Chemical and Biological Defense. The award is for Phase II development of Wide-Spectrum Bio-ID, a broadband approach for rapid detection and identification of biological agents through integration of proteomics, atmospheric pressure (AP) matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS), and bio-informatics. Key partners include University of Maryland at College Park, Signature Science, and SAIC-EAI.
MassTech Inc., a provider of AP-MALDI technology for mass spectrometry, and Agilent Technologies today announced that it has signed an agreement to distribute AP/MALDI and AP/MALDI-PDF ion sources. Terms of the agreement have not been released. More information about the G1972 and G1974 AP/MALDI ion sources can be found in the Products section.
MassTech Introduces Atmospheric Pressure MALDI Source (AP/MALDI) for Thermo Finnigan™ LTQ™ and LTQ FT™ Mass Spectrometers
MassTech Inc., a provider of AP-MALDI technology for mass spectrometry, today announced the availability of AP/MALDI-PDF ion sources for Thermo Finnigan’s linear ion trap (Finnigan™ LTQ™) and hybrid LIT (Finnigan™ LTQ FT™) mass spectrometers. The AP/MALDI-PDF ion source can be switched with electrospray in just minutes. The AP/MALDI-PDF is designed for tool-less, rapid attachment to the LTQ without the need to break vacuum. The larger square source housing accommodates ABI sample plates, and integrates pulsed dynamic focusing (PDF) technology which…
