Mass Spec Ion Sources

Mass Spec design and build bespoke sample introduction devices for variety of customers with different sampling requirements.

Mass Spec's systems are suitable for the direct and fast analysis of samples, without any sample preparation or damage. 

Vapour Testing

Airborne particle and vapour introduction unit

Mass Spec has designed and built a range of filter desorber units for the collection, trapping, and rapid desorption of vapour samples. Filters of various diameters and thicknesses are available for a range of vapour (and airborne particulate) detection applications.

Filters are available in a range of support media (paper, fabric, metal, glass, etc.) and can be coated to enhance trapping efficiency. Filter pellets are available containing a variety of sorbent types (tenax, carbotrap, molecular sieves, etc.). 

Maximum signal to noise is achieved by delivering the trapped analytes into the analytical device (mass spectrometer) as rapidly as possible. In Mass Spec’s patented filter desorber, air or nitrogen is pre-heated and passed rapidly through the filter or pellet to effect efficient desorption. 

Vapour Detection for Explosives and Other Chemicals of Interest

Analysing Cargo Container Vapours Real Time

Inspecting Containers and Cargo for illicit drugs, explosives and other chemical threats is an enormous challenge. Mass Spec Analytical has for several years been developing a vapour trace detection system as part of a comprehensive strategy to prevent these threats. MSA has developed a solution that analyses high volume air samples extracted from air freight and sea freight containers – without the need to open, unpack or disturb the contents.
