JEOL Debuts InfiTOF Multi-Turn Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer for Real-time Gas Analysis

March 7, 2016 (Pittcon 2016, Atlanta, GA) -- At Pittcon 2016 (booth #2857), JEOL will debut the new InfiTOF, a compact high-resolution mass spectrometer designed for real-time gas analysis. The InfiTOF’s unique multi-turn ion optics provide high-resolution mass spectra in a system that is the size of a personal computer tower. Featuring a mass resolving power of up to 30,000, the InfiTOF can easily separate isobaric species such as CO+ and N¬2+ without chromatography. ...

New PhotoIonization (PI) Source and a new Application for JEOL’s Fourth-Generation AccuTOF-GCX High-Resolution GC/Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

March 7, 2016 (Pittcon 2016, Atlanta, GA) – JEOL introduces a new combination electron ionization/photoionization (EI/PI) source for JEOL’s fourth-generation AccuTOF-GCX high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The new EI/PI source complements the dedicated electron ionization (EI), positive/negative chemical ionization (CI), field desorption/field ionization (FD/FI) and combination EI/FI/FD ion sources and direct probes that make the GCX the most versatile GC/TOF and GCxGC/TOF system available. Much like field ionization, photoionization is a soft ionization method that ...

Researchers first to prove ZIKA Virus associated with Microcephaly Used JEOL Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM) for imaging brain sections

Scientists from the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology and the Institute of Pathology in Ljubljana, Slovenia are the first in the world to publish and prove that the ZIKA virus is associated with Microcephaly (New England Journal of Medicine, February 10, 2016). ZIKV was found in fetal brain tissue on reversetranscriptase–polymerase-chain-reaction (RT-PCR) assay, with consistent findings on electron microscopy. The complete genome of ZIKV was recovered from the fetal brain. Imaging of the ultrathin ...
