Aerosol Mass Spectrometers

Aerosol Mass SpectrometerThe Aerodyne Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (AMS) is the only currently available instrument capable of providing quantitative size and chemical mass loading information in real-time for non-refractory sub-micron aerosol particles. The AMS couples size-resolved particle sampling and mass spectrometric techniques into a single real-time measurement system. The Aerodyne AMS has been deployed world-wide at fixed sites, and on mobile laboratory, ship and aircraft platforms. Over 100 instruments are in use in industrial, academic and government laboratories.

  • Open source, highly flexible and fully supported data analysis software. Data acquisition software can be adapted for individual customer needs.
  • Annual users' meeting for discussion of instrument use and data analysis techniques, and for fostering connections and collaborations among users.

The Aerodyne Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor (ACSM) measures particle mass loading and chemical composition in real-time for non-refractory sub-micron aerosol particles. Smaller, lower cost and more robust than our AMS instruments, the ACSM is designed for long-term unattended deployment and routine monitoring applications.
