The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Research Service, Natural Products Unit is requesting information regarding the capability to provide annual service agreements for JEOL instrumentation products.


For identification compounds, the unambiguous identification of chemical substances is crucial. The ESI LC/TOF-MS system offers easy exact-mass measurements and elemental composition determinations. AccuTOF-DART can immediately determine chemical composition of knowns and unknowns, and produce high-resolution, accurate mass spectra by simply placing a sample, in its native form, between the DART ion source and the AccuTOF mass spectrometer inlet.


Required based on the following factors:

1. DART is new technology that has entered the market introduced by JEOL.

2. To our knowledge, this is the only company that will provide a complete service package for this instrument with the DART interface.

3. As part of servicing, JEOL routinely supplies replacement boards in the super computer. Only JEOL can provide the compatible boards that are unique to the instrument.
