Markes International (Llantrisant, UK) has announced the launch of a new web-based application that will allow users to discover how ‘soft’ electron ionisation technology could benefit their GC–MS application.

The new resource, hosted at, will allow anyone to view time-of-flight mass spectra generated using Markes’ Select-eV technology. The library has been launched with the 70 eV and low-eV spectra of over 350 compounds, but will be updated quarterly with curated spectra acquired in Markes’ laboratories, as well as from Select-eV users around the world.

Laura McGregor, TOF MS Product Marketing Manager at Markes International, said “For the first time, analysts will be able to see exactly what Select-eV technology could do for their analysis, at their own convenience. We’ll be encouraging existing Select-eV users to upload their spectra, and will also be happy to consider requests for samples to be analysed in our own laboratory”.

Launched in January 2014, Select-eV is a revolutionary ion-source technology available with BenchTOF time-of-flight mass spectrometers, which enables users to generate soft-EI spectra without the hassle of other low-energy ionisation techniques, and without loss of sensitivity. Select-eV received an ‘Honorable Mention’ at Pittcon 2014, and took fourth place in the latest Analytical Scientist Innovation Awards.
