Because this years meeting is being held in a convention center and attendees will be staying at a number of hotels the format of many of the meetings programs have been changed.
Monday and Tuesday 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm ASMS Convention Room A103SIS has reserved a room in the convention center, which will be open Monday and Tuesday during the meeting as follows:
SIS Meeting Room at ASMS Convention: Room A103 General Open Hours: Monday and Tuesday This room will be open to all during the following hours as established by ASMS 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm - Join us for a Yogurt Sundae 5:50 pm to 7:30 pm - Join us to discuss your needsIn addition our meeting room will be open at other times for private conference meetings. If you would like to spend some time with the Staff of SIS, plan to stop by and see us during the general open hours listed above or give us a call to schedule a conference meeting to discuss any of our products or services or to discuss your particular requirements of SIS. We look forward to the ASMS meeting each year. We get a lot of new ideas for new products as well as suggestions as to how we can better serve you. We appreciate the opportunity to meet with you either in our meeting room or at one of the many posters that we will be presenting. We would be happy to discuss our capabilities and offer our expertise regarding custom instrument modifications or designs for new products. Our goal is to serve the needs of the mass spectrometer community.

Application of SIMION 6.0 to Problems in Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry Steven Colby and John Manura Delayed Extraction and Laser Desorption: Time-lag Focusing and Beyond Steven Colby Santford Overton and John ManuraHyperlink to any of the above titles to view an abstract on the above posters. One particular paper of importance to the mass spectrometer user is the poster presentation on Thursday by Sandy on Pump Oils for vacuum pumps. For this paper we ran 2 vacuum pumps with 2 different oils (Inland 19 & Invoil 45) for three months. Oil samples were removed every week and analyzed via purge and trap GC/MS. The two pump oils were then compared to demonstrate the degradation of these oils and to show why pump oils should be changed frequently. Steven Colby will also be presenting several posters to demonstrate the use of the SIMION 3D software in the design of mass spectrometer sources (Monday) and in Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometers (Thursday). Additional applications of Simion can also be discussed with Steve at our hospitality suite.

Simion 3D version 6.0 is a new PC based ion optics simulation program designed for modeling ions mass spectrometers and other ion optic instruments. At SIS we use this program to design new mass spectrometer filaments and to study mass spec source design. Manufacturers of electron multipliers use this software to design their detectors and instrument designers use it to design new instruments and to maximize the sensitivity of the instruments. Use this powerful software to study ion source and detector optics in time-of-flight, quadrupole, ion trap and magnetic sector mass spectrometers in order to discover improvements that can be made to your instruments as well as to develop new instrument designs.
Steve Colby is responsible for the addition of this new product to SIS and can answer your technical questions on SIMION. Steve plans several posters for presentation at ASMS and will be there to answer your questions. You can reach Steve at (908) 788-5550 or via e-Mail.

Our Internet site has been a great success. We thank all of you who have responded with your e-Mail messages of encouragement. We have a lot more planned to include in our pages on the Internet for 1996. We just completed the section on Mass Spec Supplies and Services from our catalog. We also have the sections on Thermal Desorption, Adsorbent Resins and the GC Cryo-Trap on Line. Eventually our entire catalog will be on line. Below are a few of the statistics on the response to our Internet Pages.
