De Heer built a new cluster source and a quadrupole mass analyzer with a range from 1-10,000 amu; clusters were ionized using a broadband UV arc lamp - all features that later proved to be essential for the discovery of electronic shell structure.
The precursor ions then react with the sample in the flow tube, which in turn is fed into the secondary quadrupole mass analyzer.
One vendor that is on the verge of entering the portable GC/MS market is Microsaic, which has developed a quadrupole mass analyzer on a chip that can be easily configured as a suitcase-sized GC/MS; it has been shown in such a configuration in the company's ChemPack instrument.
