The DART® SVP source is configured for operation in line with the API inlet of most LC/MS systems. DART® SVP with SVP-45A option enables desorption at 45° off-axis, while maintaining the focal point of the DART® desorption gas on the targeted sample. Efficient ion collection and transfer to the mass spectrometer is enabled by the VAPUR® interface.
Holding the DART source at a 45° off-axis angle for analysis provides the veratility needed to provide an efficient way to achieve surface analysis of many types of samples. For example, the SVP-45A module configuration is required for our 3+D Surface Scanner module, as well as for analysis with our Tablet Carrier module. This configuration is also often used for our TLC Plate Holder module as well.
