AccuTOF-DART™ has completely changed the field of mass spectrometry. Now you can immediately determine chemical composition and produce high-resolution, accurate mass spectra by simply placing a sample, in its native form, between the DART ion source and the AccuTOF mass spectrometer inlet. The DART source ionizes almost anything you put in front of it including solutions straight from your synthetic reaction pot, crude extracts, unknown pills or powders, sticky liquids, vapors, TLC plates, and more. Typically no solvents or sample preparation are required.

The AccuTOF DART couples the facile operation of the DART ion source with the high-resolution, accurate mass capability of the AccuTOF time-of-flight mass spectrometer. So not only can you rapidly acquire data for mixtures and complete unknowns without sample carryover, but the resulting spectra yield unambiguous assignments, isotopic ratios and elemental compositions. For even more sampling versatility, the standard configuration also includes an orthogonal electrospray (ESI) source.

The AccuTOF-DART will exponentially improve your MS workflow - it is the only high-performance mass spectrometer system that works as fast as you think.

AccuTOF™ DART® Details

The JEOL AccuTOF-DART SVP provides accurate mass measurements that can be used along with the isotopic information generated in the data to readily determine the elemental composition of unknown analytes. The system also features an Electrospray Ion Source (ESI) for LC-MS, and optional Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization (APCI), nano-ESI, and micro-ESI sources.

DART Ion Source

The new generation of DART ion source, the DART SVP (simplified voltage and pressure), integrates sample automation with flexibility in set up and positioning of the sample for rapid, repeatable performance. A computer-controlled linear rail can be combined with a variety of sample holders - tweezers, a tablet holder, a plate holder, a tube holder, custom holders - for precise and automated analysis of samples, TLC plates, and sample tips.

Users can select distances between the source and the atmospheric pressure interface (API), and the AccuTOF-DART SVP allows for off-axis analyses of surfaces. The DART SVP conserves gas and uses less energy, and enables the use of low-cost nitrogen gas.

iDART Automation

The AccuTOF-DART with iDART automation takes the guess work out of setup and sets voltage, gas, and pressure for the DART source and simplifies operation with a simple graphical user interface. Using the Apple iPod, the operator selects an ion polarity, temperature, and position for the sample. Once the source reaches the target temperature, the experiment automatically runs through to completion, or the researcher can monitor and change experimental conditions as desired. New users can view a video instruction manual on the iPod with sample experiments that can be replicated. The DART SVP is traditionally operated with a PC, and can be remotely controlled and monitored via a wireless or Ethernet connection.
