AccuTOF™ DART® Product Brochure
Rapid, Accurate Open Air Analysis
Direct Analysis with Time-of-Flight MS
AccuTOF-DART® is the perfect union of a time-of-flight mass spectrometer and an open air ion source. The DART ion source fully utilizes the speed and accuracy of the AccuTOF for small molecule analysis, producing clean, reproducible, easy-to-interpret data.
Real Time Analysis
AccuTOF-DART has completely changed the field of mass spectrometry. Now you can immediately determine chemical composition of knowns and unknowns, 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.
Wide Analytical Range
No interface is required between the DART and the MS, therefore the AccuTOF-DART is able to detect a wider range of polar and nonpolar compounds than any other ambient mass spec system.
JEOL introduced the DART ion source in 2005, and the technology quickly gained recognition, winning both the Pittcon Editor’s Gold Award and the R&D 100 Award. Since that time nearly 400 papers have been published by chemists using the AccuTOF-DART. The introduction of DART made it possible for the first time to carry out atmospheric pressure ionization for analysis of samples in open air.
