Data System for HP 597x Mass Spectrometer

 

MStation is designed to increase the functionality of the HP 5970, GCD, 5971, 5972 mass spectrometers . Increased sensitivity, increased throughput (SIM/Scan one injection), precise mass measurement, Chemstation compatible are some of features which make this new DACQ (Data Acquisition) system a valuable upgrade for your instruments.

MStation data system is a Windows 95-98-NT-2000-XP application.

 Its hardware is designed as a plug-in replacement of the Smart-card from HP ( DOS station) or the original IO board ( Pascal station).

 However, this product can do much more.  The system is Year 2000 compliant.  Raw scan data is available in standard.  The mass range is not limited while using Raw scan.  The acquisition will not fail or stop when Windows crashes.  The Calibration is not limited to 3 masses but 16 ( better sensitivity with SIM spectra).  One can conduct multiple experiments to acquire spectra in Scan, Raw scan, SIM  -  with one sample Run ( more information per injection).
