Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry


Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry (FAIMS) provides sensitive and fast headspace analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from a variety of sample types.

The FAIMS unit has an ATLAS sample chamber capable of heating and agitating samples for analysis. Sample analysis can be completed in a matter of minutes from a wide range of sample types.
