Mass Spectrometry for Teaching Chemistry

Developed to help chemistry students gain industry-relevant mass spectrometry skills. Advion offers a plug and play, compact, single quadrupole mass spectrometer designed specifically with the academic chemistry laboratory in mind, the expression CMS. This includes a mass spectrometer and read to teach curriculum making it the ideal solution for undergraduate and teaching chemistry programs. The expression CMS takes learning to a new level with hands-on, real-time analysis.


CheMS Opening ScreenAdvion also offers software specific for teaching labs: CheMS. The CheMS user interface simplifies the mass spectrometry experience and makes it more accessible in chemistry and biochemistry laboratories.  The user interface allows users to quickly select the workflow and type of compound they wish to analyze in just a few clicks of the mouse and the software automatically optimizes the ion source and data acquisition parameters to ensure they get the data they need for decision-making. This allows the chemist to obtain optimal data without needing to be an expert in mass spectrometry.

Learn more about the different sample techniques available with the expression CMS, including fast assay methods for liquids, solids, gases, and even air-sensitive compounds.
