DirectProbe (DIP) add-on for the Bruker APCI II and APPI II Ion Sources

Applications DirectProbe DIP

Fields of applications are

  • General Chemistry → Synthesis control
  • Manual quality control of solids (Pharma, oil, explosives)
  • Customs → Drugs of abuse, explosives
  • Homeland security
  • Environmental
  • Thermal degradation processes (plastic production)
  • Classical routine analysis (e.g. confirmation of sum formula

Direct injection Probe with APCI for ID synthetic compounds

This example shows the unambiguos identification of a synthetic compound using the autoMSn capability of an amaZon SL ion trap system. During the vaporization of solid (refer to TIC insert) data-dependent MS2 and MS3 spectra are taken. Note that after a simple neutral loss in MS2, MS3 provides rich structural information. Samples were kindly provided by SiChem GmbH, Bremen, Germany.


Direct injection Probe with APPI for QC in Production


The example shows the results of a quick manual QC and Comparison of petroleum cuts with an amaZon SL. The three candidates gas oil vacuum gas oil and vacuum residue are clearly distinguishable without any sample preparation and no memory-effect due to single use sample tubes.
