QUÉBEC CITY, Quebec & SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Phytronix Technologies, world leader in high throughput analysis, presents the fastest process ever developed for mass spectrometry: the Luxon Ion Source. Phytronix has once again answered a growing demand from the pharmaceutical, forensic toxicology, environmental and food safety markets for a novel high-throughput process. The Luxon Ion Source is presented at the 64th Annual American Society of Mass Spectrometry conference (ASMS) in San Antonio, TX this week.
Luxon Ion Source
Based on the LDTD technology (Laser Diode Thermal Desorption), the Luxon Ion Source is now powered by Fiber-Coupled optic to obtain more precision, accuracy and speed. This new technology offers greater performance and robustness in applications with very low sample volumes for quantitative analysis. With the Luxon Ion Source, Phytronix has now crossed a new frontier: sample analysis in less than 1 second per sample with 24/7 runtime capability.
Fastest process in mass spectrometry
By combining rapid liquid handling technology with a new Phytronix Automated LazWell Transfer Process and the Luxon Ion Source, Phytronix is now offering the fastest High Throughput Screening (HTS) workflow in the mass spectrometry market.
"This new chapter in analysis speed will bring about a significant change in the way our customers perform high throughput analysis. Our clients have asked for a process by which sample analysis can be achieved in less than 1 second and we have made it a reality," said Jean Lacoursière, President of Phytronix Technologies. The reality our clients face is the need to run more samples to achieve a faster return on investment and the Luxon Ion Source offers the ultimate solution. For the food safety market, the Luxon Ion Source efficiently and autonomously handles analysis processes with over 60 million samples a year. These HTS markets can now access a New Generation Instrument for high throughput quantitative analysis to achieve results at the speed of light.
