Features of LCMS-2020
UFswitching Technology High-speed polarity switching between positive/negative ion modes Measuring unknown substances requires measuring in both positive and negative ion modes. Since the positive ion/negative ion polarity switching speed of most LCMS systems is slow, ultra-fast analysis required injecting samples twice for separate measurements.
UFswitching technology (patent pending) enables switching between positive and negative ion modes in 15 milliseconds so even the fastest LC peaks can be analyzed in both modes, thus increasing productivity.
UFsensitivity Superior sensitivity, especially for ultra high-speed analysis Innovative ion optics with the newly developed Qarray® ion optical system provide superior sensitivity, repeatability, and linearity, achieving 50% to 300% greater sensitivity than any other single quadrupole analyzer for substances most commonly measured
UFscanning Technology Fast scanning speeds By adopting new technology (patent pending), a scanning speed of 15,000 u/sec is achieved without sacrificing sensitivity or resolution, even during high-speed scans.
Easy Operation/Maintenance The ESI method typically used for LCMS can be replaced with APCI, which is suitable for neutral compounds, or with a dual ionization source (DUIS) for simultaneous operation of both ionization modes, quickly and without tools. Selection of the DUIS ionization mode (ESI or APCI) can be performed via the computer. In addition, the desolvation line, where the ions enter the MS unit, can be replaced without breaking the vacuum.
