Ultra high-speed mass spectrometer compatible for the first time with ultra high-speed liquid chromatography
UFLC Quality - Speed is Power.
LCMS-2020 is optimized for the Prominence UFLC/UFLCXR Ultra Fast Liquid Chromatograph. Novel patent-pending technologies offer significantly enhanced scan speed and positive-negative ion polarity switching time, which are essential for UFLC, and simultaneously boost sensitivity. The instrument combines the excellent compound selectivity that is a feature of the mass spectrometer with significantly enhanced total productivity – from method development to analysis. The LCMS-2020 plays a useful role in a range of fields, including the synthesis of compounds in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
To detect both positive and negative ions, analysis is performed while switching between the positive and negative ionization modes. The LCMS-2020 adopts patented high-voltage power supply technology (Patent: US7855355) to achieve an ultra-fast polarity switching time of just 15 msec.
Superior sensitivity, repeatability, and linearity are achieved, thanks to the newly developed Qarray® optics.
In MS scanning, a range of mass to charge ratios are determined in successive 0.1 m/z steps. This is controlled by applying a rapidly changing voltage to the quadrupole (quadrupole rods). By adopting new technology (patent pending), ...
