Shimadzu’s New LC-MS/MS Offers Exceptional Performance in a Robust, Cost-Effective Design

Shimadzu, one of the world’s fastest growing mass spectrometry companies, announces the release of its LCMS-8045 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. Shimadzu will debut the LCMS-8045 at the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, which takes place June 5-9 in San Antonio, TX.

The new LCMS-8045 offers laboratories performing demanding routine quantitative analyses in such areas as food safety and environmental testing an optimum balance of sensitivity, robustness, and cost-effectiveness. It features a modified ion sampling device and collision cell technology, which results in greater efficiency and high quantitative accuracy and reliability. In addition, the ion source features a cable-less, tubeless housing and the desolvation capillary can be replaced without breaking vacuum. This leads to increased durability, easier maintenance, and a lower total cost of ownership.

As part of the Shimadzu Ultra Fast Mass Spectrometer series, the LCMS-8045 features an array of ultra-fast technologies. These include a scan speed of 30,000u/sec without the loss of mass accuracy and a polarity switching time of 5msec, which ensures highly reproducible data even for the most demanding matrices.

The LCMS-8045 is operated using Shimadzu’s LabSolutions software, an intuitive package that allows for simplified instrument control, diverse data handling, and integration with regulatory compliance requirements. Numerous options, including application-specific method packages and open-access quantitative analysis software, are available to address specific customer requirements.

The LCMS-8045 can be upgraded to the high-sensitivity LCMS-8060 if new challenges or applications requiring higher sensitivity arise. The shipments of LCMS-8045 will start at the end of summer.
