VISION
For the future of AMS

Ionplus is dedicated to manufacturing instruments of excellent quality and best performance to enable the exciting science of our customers. Our ambitious goal is to expand the field of AMS by making our technology accessible to all users through user friendly instruments and a high degree of automation and standardization.

 

One of the key aspects for us to achieve this goal is to offer complete packages and turnkey solutions to our customers. An AMS lab can only work if all aspects from sample preparation to measurement, data handling and data evaluation are taken care of. In addition to the complete package of hardware and software, Ionplus is offering extensive training sessions and comprehensive factory and site acceptance testing included in the package.

To lower the hurdle for an AMS acquisition even further, we design our systems in the most compact way with great attention given to the lowest possible site requirements and long maintenance intervals, comparable to other traditional mass spectrometers. To round off the Ionplus package, our ACS software allows users to work with all our AMS systems in a state-of-the-art manner.

 

With our brand new low-energy ¹C system LEA, we introduce the next generation AMS system. LEA is the evolution of the well-established concepts of MICADAS. This new system is designed to become the successor of MICADAS and our new back bone for dedicated ¹C AMS systems. In order to even better address the needs of our commercially oriented users, we push this technology further still and are currently testing an even more compact setup with a footprint of just 1.8 x 2 m.
