    By O. David Sparkman Evaluated and Expanded for Quality Figure 1. The NIST Mass Spectral Search Program with all seven of its Windows displayed. Added Features for Quality Prior to 1998, it had been six years since NIST released its last version of the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library. During that period, NIST has completed a ten-year project to completely evaluate the Library. As this process progressed, NIST was able to generate a number of spectra and acquire several important collections o...
  • SIMION 3D Ion Optics ClassSIMION 3D Ion Optics Class
    Scientific Instrument Services has in the past offered a one or two day course on the use and application of the SIMION 3D Ion Optics Simulation Software. No classes are currently formally scheduled, but personalized training at our NJ location may be an option. Description of the SIMION 3D Course: This two day course will enable the person attending to become totally familiar with the basic use of SIMION 3D ion optics simulations software and demonstrate its application to the solving of ion o...

  • Cap Liner InformationCap Liner Information
    Note: the selection of the liner is by far the most important step which will determine the success or failure of your package. Wheaton recommends the the following criteria for liner selection: Conformity to regulations - EPA and PDA Chemical resistance Sealing ability against moisture/gas gain or loss, leakage, pressure buildup, and corrosive packaging Avoidance of "overpackaging" - selecting the most economical liner for the required applications Material Description Applications Poly-vinyl ...

    LEGACT PRODUCT NOTICE: This is a legacy product, as it is no longer developed by Palisade and support is minimal. We instead recommend the NIST MS Search and NIST AMDIS programs included in the NIST MS Library for most library searching needs. The following page is provided for historical reasons or for anyone you may still need to acquire the BenchTop/PBM product for special circumstances. Contact us about your requirements. Note that NIST or commercial libraries require a special conversion t...
  • Chemical Reaction Interface Mass Spectrometry (CRIMS)Chemical Reaction Interface Mass Spectrometry
    The CRIMS technique allows stable isotopes to be used in a wide variety of tagging and tracing applications. In CRIMS, chromatography effluent is decomposed in a high-temperature microwave plasma and then reacted with a reactant gas. This results in a small number of well characterized polyatomic products whose isotopic ratios are measured by mass spectrometry in order to identify and quantify the presence of isotope tags, independent of chemical structure or environment.
