Abird -- little box that removes background ions

Apparently, people in Boston like to blow air across the fronts of their instruments.  Unlike the little device in yesterday's post which blows away all of the ions that are produced during the crappy parts of your run, this little thing, the Abird, blows a slow supply of clean air into your source at all times.

And it looks like it helps!  Y'all probably have known about this for a long time, but its new to me.

  1. ABIRD is approved for use on all Thermo Scientific nanospray-powered instruments. A second year of a Joint Marketing Agreement is now in place to promote the use of this device worldwide. It works on any nanospray source, and can make a real difference in many labs.
