The SICRIT Ionization Source is inherently a gas phase technique that allows for the soft ionization of compounds that range in both stability and polarity, providing a cleaner MS1 spectra than other ionization techniques. Additionally, the LC Module is designed to withstand higher liquid flow rates, compatibility with common ESI buffers and numerous combinations of solvent methods. By coupling these technologies, we have access to a whole new world of LC Chromatography applications
Here, an MS1 spectra of Simazine, a common pesticide, can be observed from both ESI and SICRIT. Where the SICRIT is able to provide a less fragmented, clearer MS1 spectra utilizing the LC Module.
