Appendix C
Commercial Sources of Ambient Ionization Mass Spectrometry Instrumentation

OVERVIEW

While commercially available ambient ionization mass spectrometry instrumentation in the specific configurations recommended by the committee in Chapter 4 may not be currently available off the shelf, the major components have been commercialized and a number of analytical instrument vendors are capable of designing, assembling, and demonstrating instruments meeting potential ACWA specifications. A concise summary of commercial analytical instrument companies producing ambient ionization mass spectrometry instrumentation is presented below. This list should be considered indicative rather than exhaustive and should not be considered an endorsement by either the committee or the National Research Council.
