TSI Aerosol Generation & Particle Classifier System (DMA)

TSI Aerosol Generation & Particle Classifier System (DMA)

An aerosol generated using either a nebulizer or an electrospray ionization source is passed through a differential mobility analyzer (DMA) which seperates ions according to their electrical mobility. Following separation the particles are directed into a growth chamber where they are exposed to elecated vapor pressure resulting in condensation of the particles. The condensed particles are then detected by an optical detector after illumination by a laser.
