Flexibility & Results

The highest sensitivity and control is achieved with PicoView® nanospray sources. The platform accommodates flow rates from <10 nL/min to 4 µL/min either online or offline.

Droplet Formation
Spray voltage too low

Jet Spray
Spray voltage too low

Multiple Sprays
Spray voltage too high

Perfect Plume
Spray voltage is optimal

High-Sensitivity Nanospray Sources

The PicoView® nanospray source increases sensitivity while providing the ultimate in flexibility and control over your experiment. Designed specifically to maximize the PicoFrit® technology, PicoView enables subfemtomole proteomics and biomolecule analysis at flow rates from <10 mL/min. to 4 µL/min.

Extra Info

A. Junction or Tip Contact. Whether you need to establish a high-voltage junction contact with the platinum wire MicroTee electrode or tip contact through the conductive coating on a PicoTip® and a zero dead-volume union, the PicoView® easily accommodates both styles.

B. High-Resolution Video Imaging. 50x-200x System magnification provides optimal viewing of PicoTips® for easy tuning and troubleshooting. Camera is easily positioned and focused with knob-driven controls.

C. Magnetic Stage for Tool-Free Setup. Change emitters or modify your experiment out of the box quickly and easily — no screws or clamps and no tools required. The magnetic interlock stage snaps back into place easily and with minimal reoptimization.

D. Integrated Valve Mount. The PicoView® source provides an integrated valve mount to help keep system swept volume as low as possible. Component arms organize plumbing for quick and efficient setup and modification.
