Combined Chemical/Biological Agent Detection by Mass Spectrometry

This is a mass spectrometer for combined chemical/biological agent detection and identification that comprises (a) a combined electron impact and MALDI ionization source for volatile and non-volatile sample analyses, respectively, (b) a mode in which both EI and MALDI sources are operating simultaneously for the detection of marginally volatile chemical and biological markers, or for increasing fragmentation, (c) an orthogonal extraction geometry that does not limit the mass range, and (d) a design that is miniaturized. The combined chemical/biological agent mass spectrometry detector can be miniaturized for portable use and retains excellent high mass resolution and mass range.
