Collaborate: Ion Trap Technology

By April 24, 2023No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Florida International University’s ion trap technology, which uses notched electrodes to detect, trap, and sort charged ion particles. By reducing trapping forces on the ring electrode closest to the detector, the technology improves ion sensitivity and efficiency, leading to more accurate results with less signal loss and lower power consumption.

This technology is applicable to commercial ion traps, which are a common type of mass spectrometer. The mass spectrometry market is expected to grow from $4.5 billion in 2022 to $7 billion by 2028.

Florida International University’s ion trap technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the Florida International University team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
