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.
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.
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.
