The new MiDas interface unit from Microsaic Systems allows simple connectivity of Microsaic’s miniaturized mass detector, the 4000 MiD, for online and offline analysis. It allows for the simple deployment of mass detection in a large variety of real-time applications, offering automated sampling, dilution and injection for direct MS analysis at the lab bench or fume hood. The 4000 MiD’s low operating cost and small footprint make the instrument deployable in a wide range of applications where MS has not previously been practical. It fits comfortably into a standard lab fume hood, opening up further opportunities in the field of on-line reaction monitoring. Users benefit from significant cost savings, owing to fewer necessary structural components such as gas generators and air conditioning. There are also sizeable savings with the use of ‘Plug and Play’ components which enable users to maintain the system themselves, resulting in less downtime and greater flexibility within the laboratory.
