iMScope TRIO

Imaging mass spectrometry is a revolutionary new technology.
The instrument is a combination of an optical microscope which allows the observation of highresolution morphological images, with a mass spectrometer which identifies and visualizes the distribution of specific molecules. Superimposing the two images obtained based on these very different principles,has created a significant new research tool, the imaging mass microscope. The accurate and high resolution mass images from the iMScope will drive your research to the next level. At long last, we have entered the age of imaging mass spectrometry.* Sales area: All areas excluding North America

Imaging Mass Spectrometry identifies what you see at the molecular level iMScope TRIO transforms your data from just “Observation” to “Analysis”

Optical microscopes cannot determine which molecules are localized in the region of interest. On the other hand, the positional information of molecules is lost in mass spectrometric analysis, where sample extraction and homogenization is needed for sample pre-treatment.
What if the qualitative analysis and localization of specific molecules and compositional and morphological observation could be obtained from a single analysis through microscope observation? Imaging mass spectrometry with the iMScope TRIO realizes this dream.

 

 

Imaging mass spectrometry directly detects both natural and synthetic molecules in tissue sections and measures mass spectra, while retaining their positional information associated with the tissue section.
Then, two-dimensional distributions of specific molecules are visualized by combining the positional information of each mass spectrum and the signal intensity for specific ions in the mass spectrum (MS imaging). The iMScope TRIO imaging mass microscope is an instrument designed specifically for imaging mass spectrometry. It represents a hybrid type microscope that combines both an optical microscope and a mass spectrometer. The iMScope TRIO now makes it possible to identify various substances directly in tissue samples and expands the potential research opportunities in a wide variety of fields.

AutoMate-Q40 – Automated Workflow Platform

The AutoMate-Q40 is a revolutionary system specifically designed and optimized to automate the QuEChERS sample preparation workflow.
The system is configured ‘out of the box’ to conduct two of the most popular QuEChERS sample preparation methods: AOAC 2007.01(Pesticide Residues in Food by Acetonitrile Extraction and Partitioning with Magnesium Sulfate) and EN 15662.2008 (Foods of Plant Origin—Determination of Pesticide Residues Using GC-MS and/or LC-MS/MS Following Acetonitrile Extraction/Partitioning and Clean-up by Dispersive SPE—QuEChERS method).

The AutoMate-Q40 system automates the following sample prep functions:
Liquid dispensing/pipetting
Vortex mixing
Vial shaking
Opening/closing sample vials
Addition of solid reagents (ex. salts, buffers)
Identifying liquid levels
Decanting
Centrifugation

“Performance Evaluation of an Auotmated QuEChERS Workflow Platform for Analysis of Pesticides in Fresh Produce”

Abstract:
The Teledyne Tekmar AutoMate Q-40 is a robotic system designed to optimize and automate the QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, Safe) sample preparation workflow. The performance of this system was evaluated in comparison to a manual sample preparation workflow using the AOAC 2007.01 unbuffered QuEChERS methodology where all samples were analyzed using liquid chromatography – tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Matrices used in this study were cabbage, valencia orange, raisin and purple corn flour. A Restek LC Multiresidue Standards Kit for Pesticide Analysis, Teledyne Tekmar QuEChERS extractions salts and C18/PSA dSPE cleanup and an ABSciex Qtrap 5500 mass spectrometer were also employed. LC parameters included the use of a Restek Ultra-Aqueous C18 Column (100 mm x 2.1 mm, 3 μm), 10 mM NH4HCO2 buffer (A: water, B: methanol) with 0.1% formic acid, 0.5 mL/min flow rate with 5 μL sample injection and MS/MS parameters were optimized individually. Results were determined for the instrument (limit of detection, limit of quantitation and linearity) and method (method detection limit, recoveries, relative standard error) and will be compared to determine the statistical differences (if any).

Versa Automated Headspace Vial Sampler

VersaIn 1974, Tekmar developed an idea that revolutionized the way laboratories performed Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) testing. Since then, Tekmar has continued to build on the foundation of the initial Purge and Trap technique one innovative layer at a time. The Stratum PTC builds on eight previous generations, making us the industry’s cornerstone of technique and support.

The fundamentals of Purge and Trap are time proven. By bubbling a purge gas through your sample matrix, the VOCs are removed and collected on an analytical trap. After the purging is complete, the trap is heated and the VOCs are released and delivered to a gas chromatograph for separation and detection. The Stratum PTC uses components that are absolutely essential to perform a successful Purge and Trap analysis; those being a mass flow controller (MFC), superior trapping technology, and inert sample pathway.

The heart and soul of our Purge and Trap System is the Teledyne Hastings Mass Flow Controller. The MFC delivers the purge gas with unmatched precision and accuracy. The most advantageous feature of utilizing the MFC is the ability to instantaneously change the gas flows and pressures at any time during the Purge and Trap process.

The Teledyne Tekmar StratTrap offers trapping benefits that have never been seen before by Purge and Trap concentrators. The StratTrap is capable of adsorbing the VOCs of interest while minimizing the collection of unwanted compounds, such as water. The ultra-fast trap heater ensures that the StratTrap is desorbed rapidly and the VOCs are delivered to the GC system quickly.

One important key to minimize carryover is the Stratum PTC’s inert sample pathway. The tubing and fittings have been treated to provide unprecedented low carryover which permits the enduser to calibrate with more confidence.

Note: The Stratum TekLink™ software runs in a Microsoft® Windows XP or greater environment.
