Rapid analysis with the Direct Analysis in Real Time technology provides near-instantaneous detection of drugs of abuse and contaminants.

IonSense, Inc. announce the introduction of the DART®-QS Source for rugged direct sample analysis using its Direct Analysis in Real Time –Mass Spectrometry technology, which can detect a range of materials from drugs of abuse to adulterated products in as little as 10 seconds per sample. Both qualitative and quantitative results can be obtained, providing rapid feedback, and alleviating backlogs. The source utilizes QuickStrip™ Sample Cards for automated analysis of 12 samples. They are simple to use, insure that no cross -contamination occurs, and can be loaded automatically or manually, including standards for quantitation.

“For critical samples, our customers need an increased level of security and robustness, which we provide with the use of QuickStrip Sample Cards in the new enclosed DART-QS Source,” said Brian Musselman, IonSense CEO. “Additionally the source can be used with nitrogen or helium, providing additional breadth of coverage, and minimizing background ions.

The source can be mounted on all Thermo ion trap products including the ultrahigh resolution EXACTIVE+ mass spectrometer permitting acquisition of precise accurate mass measurements, often sufficient to identify unknowns.

In addition to the exhibition, DART technology will be highlighted in a number of presentations from leading laboratories.

• A Method for the Analysis of Lotions Using Direct Analysis in Real-Time Mass Spectrometry (DART-MS)

• Chemical Profiling of Forensically Relevant Bacterial Threat Agents With Direct Analysis in Real-Time Mass Spectrometry (DART-MS) and Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) Analysis

• Rapid Determination of Adulterants in Aqueous Mixtures by DART-MS

• High Throughput Analysis of Street-Quality Drug Mixtures by DART-MS Analysis and MassWorks™ Post Acquisition Characterization

• Characterization and Discrimination of Printing Inks Using DART-MS, Py-GC/MS, and ATR-FTIR for Forensic Document Analysis

The product will be exhibited at the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS), Seattle, WA, February 17-22, 2014, Booth 310.
