OptiFlow - Model Turbo V - Ion Source
From Ion Sources
A Revolution in Low Flow Separations to Maintain the Perfect Balance of Robustness and Sensitivity: Based on the trusted Turbo V™ source design and with finger-tight fittings for tool-free setup. New SteadySpray™ probes ensure consistent droplet formation for high quality spray and optimized for multiple flow ranges: Micro: 1 - 10, 10 - 50, 50 - 200 µL/min. Nano: 100 – 1000 nL/min. Switch between nanoflow and microflow in minutes.
Introducing the all new OptiFlow Turbo V Ion Source with SteadySpray™ probes from SCIEX. The robustness and simplicity you’ve come to expect from traditional analytical flow can now be experienced in your high sensitivity microflow and nanoflow analyses.
We have made this possible with standard size finger-tight fittings, and a new single click source interface – allowing you to effortlessly connect your LC, column and mass spec. The OptiFlow source is equipped with intelligent probe recognition technology to preset system source settings and probe position, providing optimal spray and eliminating all manual adjustments.
Innovations that Power Your Performance
Engineered with enhanced gas flow dynamics and Ion Drive™ heaters for increased ion production and robustness, the OptiFlow source helps ensure consistency in results across multiple systems and multiple users. Extensive experiments were performed for nanoflow and microflow to find optimal probe positions, protrusions and typical gas and temperature settings.
Micro: 1 - 10, 10 - 50, 50 - 200 µL/min
Nano: 100 – 1000 nL/min
Stainless steel probes with optimized length based on flow rate range, and newly designed electrodes to ensure consistent droplet formation for high quality spray. Available in low flow micro 1-50 µL/min, high flow micro 50-200 µL/min and nano 100 – 1000 nL/min
Intelligent probe recognition technology presets system source settings to an optimal range for best spray conditions, and eliminate all manual adjustments on the source
