Entracers acquired the first patented GE-MIMS module

Let’s call it “Christmas present”: Entracers is now the proud owner of the first patented (or, more precisely, “pat. pending”) GE-MIMS module which allows quantitative gas analysis in water using the miniRUEDI. Such Eawag-patented GE-MIMS modules can be purchased at Gasometrix GmbH.


Article on deconvolution and compensation of MS interferences

A method that extends the miniRUEDI peak-height comparison has been developed in order to resolve interferences resulting from overlapping ion currents of multiple species. Here the details on the publication:
