The company mission is to advance analytical technology bringing the sampling to the sample, and have developed a full line of transportable instrumentation for any field task. The portable and transportable mass spectrometry instruments are the latest innovation from BaySpec's 15 years' belief in "bring labs to samples". Using core technology that was developed from laboratory-based instruments, the Portability TM is small enough to be used in the field and still offers ppb-level detection and compatibility with in situ and real-time detection methods. The convenience, affordability, efficiency, and ease of in-field sample analysis will save time and reduce cost. The Portability TM mass spectrometer is newest addition to Bayspec's mass spectrometry product line and one of BaySpec's newest portable instruments. Designed to bring the benefits of mass spectrometry chemical analysis to the field, the Portability TM can service a variety of bulk or trace detection applications. This instrument is small enough to be carried by one person and is controlled by a simple user friendly software. The Portability TM is compatible with in-situ and direct analysis techniques. The front inlet allows direct connection with electrospray, thermal-desorption electrospray and atmospheric- pressure chemical ionization. This atmospheric pressure inlet (API) is compatible with liquid chromatography through electrospray as well as with majority of ambient ionization techniques such as DESI or DART. The side port allows access to the internal electron ionization source; membrane inlet or gas chromatograph can be coupled there. The Portability TM can operate in positive and negative ion mode and can be made in multiple deployment configurations based on actual application needs. Detection of explosives (PETN, RDX at 10ng/mm2) and CWA simulants was demonstrated using Portability TM .
