3+D Scanner

The 3+D scanner is designed to permit movement of a large format object in order to complete determination of chemicals present on the object surface. X-Y movement of the sample stage is completed under computer control using a web enabled program. Movement of up to 20 mm in the Z-direction is completed manually.

Using the 3+D Scanner enables inspection of objects either by using a rapid scan, or by computer control selection of specific regions. In the scan mode mass spectra are acquired into a data file while continuous desorption ionization of the sample occurs. The resolution of the inspection is set by adjusting the Y -distance. In manual mode rapid analysis or spots on the surface is facilitated by directing the stage movement to bring the area of interest into the desorption ionization region for analysis.
