The Direct Analysis in Real Time (DART) ion source was developed on the JEOL AccuTOF mass spectrometer as the first ambient ion source and the AccuTOF-DART™ was introduced in 2005 as the first commercially available ambient ionization mass spectrometer.

In 2015 we introduced the AccuTOF-DART 4G, the third generation of the successful AccuTOF LC series, a simple, robust and versatile atmospheric pressure ionization high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometer (API-HRTOFMS). It can provide solutions for a wide variety of fields with a variety of atmospheric and ambient ionization sources.
Powerful Problem-solving Tool
The AccuTOF-DART 4G is a powerful problem-solving tool for a wide range of applications. It allows you to 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, polymers and adhesives, contamination on small parts, sticky liquids, vapors, TLC plates, and more. Many analyses can be carried out with little or no sample preparation.
TOF Plus DART Advantages
The AccuTOF-DART is the perfect union of this advanced time-of-flight mass spectrometer and the open air ion source that completely changed the field of mass spectrometry. The DART ion source is fully integrated with the AccuTOF without requiring additional pumps, flanges, or interface hardware. This makes it possible to carry out unique ambient ionization experiments that are not practical on other mass spectrometers and produces clean, reproducible, easy-to-interpret data.
The AccuTOF-DART 4G will exponentially improve your MS workflow - it is the only high-performance mass spectrometer system that works as fast as you think!
