We are offering a new remote analysis, in-hood sampling device to several labs who want to test this new approach. If you are interested in this offer, just email us at
We also want to let you know about an on-demand webinar on DART detection of adulterated cosmetics.
Hood-DART Video and Offer to Demo
We were inspired by the recent article,
A Mass Spectrometer in Every Fume Hood, by Ethan McBride and Guido Verbeck of the University of North Texas. However, rather than placing your valuable instrument in close proximity to a volatile mix of solvent, acids, and bases, we have utilized the remote analysis capabilities of DART for direct in-hood analysis. You can desorb in one place and ionize in another.
We used the DART OS desorber, coupled to the DART source with a length of tubing. This allows you to keep all your chemicals inside the hood while rapidly analyzing your reaction mixtures.
View the video.
We have a few of these Hood-DART setups freely available for any current DART customer who would like add the in-hood analysis to their source. If you are interested in testing this new approach, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

DART Webinar on Cosmetics
Here is a
webinar on-demand brought you you by Waters. It discusses the use of DART for screening cosmetic products for authenticity. It describes a study of several cosmetic products that contained prohibited pharmaceutical such as corticosteroids, and others that had prohibited skin lightening agents. This can raise the potential of improper long-term use and adverse side effects to consumers.
IonSense Inc., established in 2005, is the leading provider of Open Air/Ambient Ionization sources, systems and integrated solutions for the $4B Mass Spectrometry marketplace. Headquartered in Saugus, MA the company manufactures, sells and markets the DART® (Direct Analysis in Real Time) ionization source, the first open air ionization product to be patented and sold commercially.
