BASi provides clients with increased sample analysis speed and quick turnaround with the LDTD technology. Fast screening is combined with accurate quantification results, to benefit any bioanalytical studies.
LDTD (Laser Diode Thermal Desorption) technology is an innovative technique that introduces all samples into the mass spectrometer by a rapid laser thermal desorption process, where they are ionized by an atmospheric pressure chemical reaction (LDTD-APCI) and fully analyzed 10 to 20 times faster than with current LC-MS/MS systems – without compromising accuracy. LDTD is an ion source for mass spectrometry, working without any LC apparatus.
“BASi’s use of LDTD technology can reduce sample analysis time to a fraction previously required by LC-MS/MS,” stated Tony Chilton, COO, Scientific Services. “With this new technology we will be able to provide our clients with another outstanding tool for sample analysis.”
Recently, BASi presented a poster on LDTD technology at the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry, “Validation of Pioglitazone in Human Serum by Two Sample Introduction Methods: LDTD-APCI/MS/MS and LC-ESI/MS/MS.” The poster is available at http://www.basinc.com/library/presentations.html.
