Markes International launches free soft-EI spectral library
Friday, 12 June 2015 at 8:53:AM
Markes International (Llantrisant, UK) has announced the launch of
a new web-based application that will allow users to discover how ‘soft’
electron ionisation technology could benefit their GC–MS application.
The new resource, hosted at www.select-ev.com, will
allow anyone to view time-of-flight mass spectra generated using Markes’
Select-eV technology. The library has been launched with the 70 eV and low-eV
spectra of over 350 compounds, but will be updated quarterly with curated spectra acquired
in Markes’ laboratories, as well as from Select-eV users around the world.
Dr Laura McGregor, TOF MS Product Marketing Manager at Markes
International, said “For the first time, analysts will be able to see exactly
what Select-eV technology could do for their analysis, at their own
convenience. We’ll be encouraging existing Select-eV users to upload their
spectra, and will also be happy to consider requests for samples to be analysed
in our own laboratory”.
Launched in January 2014, Select-eV is a revolutionary ion-source
technology available with BenchTOF time-of-flight mass spectrometers, which
enables users to generate soft-EI spectra without the hassle of other
low-energy ionisation techniques, and without loss of sensitivity. Select-eV
received an ‘Honorable Mention’ at Pittcon 2014, and took fourth place in the
latest Analytical Scientist Innovation Awards.
