Russian scientists have developed a device to rapidly determine composition of unknown substances
«The new device is capable of conducting a study of one substance 'from four points of view' simultaneously as well as simultaneously working with several substances on a single mass spectrometer. A 'classical' mass spectrometer, on the other hand, only works with various substances one at a time,» the message of the university says.
The device can eventually find wide application not only in scientific laboratories, but also in various industries. The scientists have already used the device they have developed to simultaneously analyse oil and biological molecules.
