Maximize Your Results and Return on Investment

CMS FamilyCompact mass spectrometry provides essential information quickly and improves the chemist’s workflow, sparking global growth of this compact benchtop solution. Modern organic labs have become automated, faster and more critical reactions require co-located versatile analytics — the Advion expression Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS) solves this at an affordable price.

Most laboratories require the ability to analyze a range of samples using more than one technique for more complete identification and characterization of samples. The expression CMS integrates with nearly every chemistry technique from the simplest, fastest direct probe analysis requiring no sample preparation to ultra-high performance compound separation with seamless LC integration. Advion provides an extensive range of innovative sample introduction techniques that fully integrate with the CMS:

  • Plate Express™ TLC Plate Reader
  • Atmospheric Solid Analysis Probe (ASAP®) & inert ASAP
  • Touch Express™ Open Port Sampling Interface (OPSI)
  • Volatile APCI (vAPCI)
  • AVANT Customizable (U)HPLC Series

Touch Express™ OPSI Awarded the 2018 Innovation Award by The Analytical Scientist

The Touch Express Open Port Sampling Interface (OPSI), is designed for simple sampling of solids, liquids and sample preparation tips and fibers. The novel ambient sampling technique was developed by Gary Van Berkel and Vilmos Kertesz, of Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The awards, touted by The Analytical Scientist as “Strokes of Genius,” highlight the OPSI’s unique, prep-free technique that can be used on a wide diversity of samples and applications, including:

  • Compound identification and impurity detection from almost any liquid or surface
  • Easy screening applications for drug research, food safety, environmental, and forensics
  • Large molecule applications, including proteins, peptides, oligonucleotides and polymers

2018 expression CMS Highlights

Distinguishing neurocysticercosis epilepsy from epilepsy of unknown etiology using a minimal serum mass profiling platform

Jay Hanas, Professor of Biochemistry and Microbiology, University of Oklahoma

The goal of this study was to test the extent to which patients with neurocysticercosis epilepsy, epilepsy of unknown etiology, idiopathic headaches and among different types of neurocysticercosis lesions could be distinguished from each other based on serum mass profiling.

AI Robot Mixes Chemicals to Discover New Reactions

Lee Cronin, Regius Chair of Chemistry, University of Glasgow

Developed by Lee Cronin’s group at the University of Glasgow, the AI robot automates experiments to discover new reactions and synthesize compounds that are truly novel.

Mobile Mass Spectrometry: Taking the Laboratory to the Field

Dr. Heather Walker, Mass Spectrometry Facility Manager, University of Sheffield

Dr. Walker and her Plant Production and Protection (P3) Team at Sheffield University took the laboratory directly into the field for sample analysis. The expression CMS and ASAP allowed for direct sample analysis and instant mass spectral information in the field environment.
