When looking for the right handheld GC/MS instrument, you should be looking for a device with an autosampler and an atmospheric pressure interface. This will make your life easier when working with samples that are a lot larger than the GC/MS’s small measurement range. You can also upgrade the firmware of your handheld GC/MS to take advantage of the latest advances in the technology.
A new generation 3D printer
One of the most important benefits of a new generation 3D printer is its ability to print objects in a variety of materials. These include polycarbonate, ABS, and PETG. This allows for a wide range of applications, from handprints to blood vessels.
Some of the more notable features of a new generation 3D printer are faster speeds and better post-processing. With regular software updates, users are assured of higher quality prints and quicker turnaround times.
Another advantage of a new generation 3D printer is that it offers an affordable price point. Using titanium ink, the GC3GE300 is capable of creating positive or negative prints, as well as three-dimensional models from scratch.
For forensic investigators, the value of a new generation 3D printer is a question of how to assess its potential to produce evidence. In some cases, a forensic team may examine a printed model to analyze its CAD files and traces of a polymer or metal.
A handheld GC/MS with autosampler and atmospheric pressure interface
Atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) is an alternative to electron impact ionization. This soft ionization process allows for a high grade of fragmentation while avoiding free electrons that can impact the target analyte. However, APCI can also cause coelution, which can lead to misidentifications.
In this project, a prototype mobile laboratory mass spectrometer was developed that incorporates an atmospheric pressure ionization interface and a tandem MS. The small size and low voltage requirements of this prototype are ideal for field applications.
In addition to providing the ability to detect and quantify chemical compounds in a variety of samples, the API interface is also designed to provide rapid identification. It also provides the advantage of being able to directly interface to an electrospray ionization system.
A cellular antennae is required
Antennas are an essential part of virtually every internet set-up. They are built into many phones, and are used in mobile hotspot devices. In addition, they can be purchased as an individual piece of equipment.
There are several types of antennas, and each has a range of uses. Some are omni-directional, which pull in existing cellular signal. Others are directional, which focus the receiving antenna on a particular direction.
The primary performance attribute of all antennas is gain. Gain is the amount of focus that a signal gets, and it is often a good indication of how strong the signal is. You can achieve greater gains by using multiple antennas. Usually, this will increase the performance of the system by a factor of two.
There is one trick to upgrade your 2GIG GC3e panel that you may not have tried. It involves downloading the appropriate files to your USB flash drive and putting it in the USB port of your GC3e.
Next, plug the USB drive into the USB port on the top of your GC3 panel. The panel will then reboot to finish the job. After the reboot, you can unplug the USB drive to check out the new firmware.
One of the best things about upgrading your GC3e is that it’s a simple process. You’ll need a few things on hand. A USB drive is a must, but you can also use a TFTP server. If you have access to a cellular connection, you may be able to get your device upgraded over the air. Alternatively, you can just download the firmware onto your computer.
