Pioneering precision: AMF’s role in IMS research

Advanced Microfluidics (AMF) is providing essential tools that empower researchers in analytical chemistry. Our involvement in this study on ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) highlights our dedication to scientific advancement and precision. By supplying state-of-the-art microfluidic devices and automated liquid handling systems, AMF has enabled the research team to achieve unprecedented precision and control.

Our technology’s role in this research is transformative. The precise delivery and control were made possible through AMF’s LSPone, our Laboratory programmable Syringe Pump (combined with a rotary valve). This precision ensures that every variable in the experiment is meticulously controlled and automated, leading to more reliable and reproducible results. The success of this study not only showcases the versatility and efficiency of AMF’s LSPone but also demonstrates how our technology can overcome challenges faced in analytical techniques like IMS.

Our involvement in this significant research is a testament to our vision: to revolutionize microfluidic practices and contribute to groundbreaking discoveries that enhance our understanding of the world.
