HTX M3+ Sprayer with heated nozzle and integrated pump
The HTX M3+ Sprayer is based on a patented spray nozzle design. Originally developed to deposit “hard-to-dissolve” polymers onto sample plates the unique spray technology is well suited for matrix deposition. The unique combination of heat (the nozzle can be temperature controlled up to 140 C), pressure (carrier solvent is delivered at high pressure by an isocratic pump) and drying sheath gas (Dry Air or Nitrogen) result in a precisely controlled solvent/matrix deposition that can be used for many matrix types.
Thanks to its advanced design, the spray nozzle delivers matrix solution from <10 µL/min to 0.250 mL/min without the frequent clogging associated with other technologies. In addition, the spray nozzle offers several ways to control spray characteristics including:
The HTX M5 Sprayer builds on the proven capabilities of its predecessor, the HTX TM-Sprayer, to offer even greater performance. The all-innovative M5 Sprayer with high velocity stage and heated sample holder drawer contribute to a greater user experience and expanded process capabilities.
• New heated tray
• 4x Faster nozzle
• Newly designed chassis
• Variable nozzle height
• Greatest range of applications
Solvent-free matrix deposition via sublimation offers several advantages over typical spraying methods. It can often improve image resolution, as no solvent is ever introduced to the surface sample to induce analyte delocalization.
