Q: Is it possible to use self-packed columns with the EASY-Spray source?
No, only EASY-Spray columns can be used with the EASY-Spray source. For greater flexibility we recommend the Nanospray Flex source.
Q: Can I get column material other than PepMap C18?
No, currently the EASY-Spray column portfolio consists of four options packed with PepMap C18.
Q: Does the EASY-Spray column have frits in both ends?
Q: How is the high voltage applied?
Via a liquid junction through the metal cap. For protection, the metal cap is completely covered when connected.
Q: What is the temperature range?
30 to 60 degree Celsius.
Q: What is the recommended temperature for the EASY-Spray column?
35 degrees Celsius. Quality verification is performed at this temperature
Q: How is the column connected to the emitter?
Zero dead volume fitting and sleeves.
Q: What is the inner diameter of the emitter?
All EASY-Spray columns are equipped with 7µm uniform inner diameter polished glass emitters.
Q: What is the shape of the emitter tip?
The EASY-Spray emitter tip is tapered on the outside and uniform inside.
Q: What if the emitter is broken or blocked – can I change it myself?
No, the factory assembly is key to achieving a perfect ZDV connection in the liquid union each time, so while the design itself is very robust and further protected by a spring-loaded cap, you have to replace the whole EASY-Spray column if the emitter breaks.
Q: Is it possible to fill EASY-Spray source with nitrogen gas?
Currently EASY-Spray does not support gas, but because the spray formation takes place inside a closed chamber it is less susceptible to environmental factors such as the condition of the air.
Q: What is the recommended distance from an emitter to a heated capillary?
Approximated 3 mm. Refer to the manual for a description on how to align using the EASY-Spray alignment tool.
Q: Is it possible to visualize the spray?
No, we recommend using the software tool in tune on the MS control PC to monitor the spray.
Q: What is the price of the EASY-Spray column?
EASY-Spray columns are priced similarly to the Pepmap Acclaim column portfolio for cost attractive operations. For local list prices consult your sales professional or request a quotation via this website.
Q: What is the price of the EASY-Spray source?
