What kind of calibration are you developing?
We are developing a calibration system, which includes several calibrations, such as mass calibration, quantification and lateral calibration.
For mass calibration we use phosphorus clusters, which are easily formed from red phosphorus by laser desorption ionization. Red phosphorus is ideal for calibration because it is monoisotopic, the clusters are singly charged, and a range of up to approximately m/z 3000 can be covered.
What is required for the operation of the diving device?
You need a fume hood with a small space of 15 cm x 30 cm x 20 cm, a waste container and a power connection nearby.
How long does a matrix deposition take with the dipping apparatus?
On average the matrix application takes about 5 minutes (depending on the solvent). This time includes both the application of the matrix and the time needed to clean the MSI-360.
