Czech patent no. 307445
The pressure regulation increases pressure in an ion source region. More ions is generated for subsequent measurement and lower limits of quantitation and detection are achieved. The measured signal can be increased by order(s) of magnitude. The proposed design is useful for mass spectrometers or ion mobility spectrometers equipped with atmospheric pressure ion sources.

About the group:
The group focuses on describing and modelling analytical processes during the transition to the nanoscale (the ionization of substances, nanoseparation beds, the influence of nanoparticles on the interaction of radiation and the analyte, electrochemical conversions) and characterizing nanomaterials using the methods of analytical chemistry (e.g. capillary electrophoresis). The group also works on the development of new analytical tools (ion sources, separation systems, sensitive detection systems) and advanced analytical methods (lower detection thresholds, accelerated analyses). Other favoured directions include the development of methods for observing the conversion of toxic and pharmacologically interesting substances, and the description of the interactions of these substances with living organisms. The group is also concerned with basic research on ionization and fragmentation in mass spectrometry, preconcentration, and chromatographic and electrophoretic separation. The knowledge obtained serves as a basis for e.g. analyzing foods or in forensic analysis.
