Adding ultraFAIMS is straightforward, to give you an idea of how simple it is to retrofit, see how ultraFAIMS is integrated onto a Thermo Scientific Orbitrap with an Ion Max Source:

retrofit ultraFAIMS step 1
1. Fit ultraFAIMS cone over the spray cone on the MS inlet
retrofit ultraFAIMS step 2
2. Fit the ultraFAIMS chip cap
retrofit ultraFAIMS step 3
3. Re-mount ionization source on supplied adaptor ring
