Combining direct-from-sample ionization with high performance time-of-flight mass spectrometry and powerful, intuitive analytics, the Rapid Evaporative Ionization Mass Spectrometry™ (REIMS™) Research System with iKnife™ Sampling System eliminates the need for sample preparation and chromatographic separation, providing food, microbiology and tissue researchers with near-instantaneous data acquisition.

Using Waters REIMS Research System with iKnife Sampling, researchers can quickly and easily differentiate samples from one another and confidently identify the differentiating features, allowing greater insight into the chemical and biological systems under investigation. In REIMS, direct, rapid heating of the samples leads to the formation of vapor that is rich in sample-specific chemical information. The vapor is taken directly into the mass spectrometer (Xevo® G2-XS QTof or SYNAPT® G2-Si HDMS) where the molecules are analyzed by time-of-flight mass spectrometry.

“The new system will deliver REIMS technology into the hands of many more scientists working in important areas such as research into food fraud...
