  More than half of the beams produced at GANIL are metallic elements, underlining the importance of their continuing development. Compared to the conventional techniques (oven, sputtering, MIVOC), the 1+/n+ method has demonstrated superior ionization efficiencies, suggesting the potential for improved metal beam production. Dedicated studies are required to assess the feasibility of this approach. The SPIRAL1 Charge Breeder is now in operation at the GANIL radioactive beam facility SPIRAL1. Operation in high radiation area poses challenges for its future development. A separate test stand supporting charge breeder and metal ion beam R&D is thus desirable. The GTS 14.5 GHz ECRIS has been chosen as a platform for 1+/n+ studies. After the upgrade program of 2017-2018, the GTS provides good performance and versatility, making it well-suited for ion source R&D. A new injection module has been designed for 1+ injection into the GTS plasma to be used in the 1+/n+ studies. It can be easily replaced with the conventional system for normal ion source operation. The design of the new injection system will be presented in detail with ion optical simulations of the 1+ beam injection.
