A system and method for providing sample into an electrospray device such as a mass spectrometer by providing a sample at a near constant flow through a sample delivery tube with a specified dimensionality through an emitter. These dimensions and feed rates result in higher pressures than would exist in the prior art with some of these pressures being greater than 1000 psi. This system enables increased sample throughput of up to 1200 samples per day.
