Day after day, analytical testing laboratories face considerable challenges due to backlogs of time-critical samples, rising per-sample costs, availability of skilled laboratory technicians, and chromatography maintenance and downtime. The Thermo Scientific™ VeriSpray™ PaperSpray ion source uniquely addresses these concerns. Combine the VeriSpray ion source with next-generation Thermo Scientific™ mass spectrometers to reduce time to results and cost per test with automated, high-throughput, direct mass spectrometry (MS)-based sample analysis. The VeriSpray ion source allows use of “dilute and shoot” methods to minimize solvent consumption and time-consuming sample preparation steps like derivatization, while avoiding needs for expert operators and instrument downtime. For laboratories currently performing LC or GC methods, or for those that want to add the robust sensitivity and selectivity of MS-based tests, the VeriSpray ion source provides an ideal alternative to the complexity of chromatography-based solutions.
