Orbitrap Tribrid mass spectrometers ordering guide
High-Field Asymmetric waveform Ion Mobility Spectrometry (FAIMS) can be used to optimize ion selectivity and reduce chemical backgrounds during mass spectrometry assays. FAIMS successfully prevents interferences from co-eluting compounds and increases signal to noise ratios by 100-fold or higher.
