Technology News - November 2010

SFC System
SFC-Fusion™ A5
  • Converts standard Agilent binary pumping HPLCs into analytical SFC systems
  • Supports 0.5 to 5 ml/min flow at 100 to 400 bar
  • Provides ultra-fast throughput using 1.8 μm particles
  • Built-in condenser allows the use of vapor phase CO2 at room temperature

Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer
Fast Detection Speeds for UHPLC
The LCMS-8030 Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer from Shimadzu Scientific Instruments features UFsweeper® technology, which accelerates ions out of the collision cell by forming a pseudo-potential surface. This results in high-efficiency collision-induced dissociation (CID) and ultra-fast ion transport for higher sensitivity. UFsweeper also enables the system to deliver fast MRM acquisition times.
With a high-speed scanning rate of 15,000 u/sec, the LCMS-8030 can provide full spectrum scans within a series of MRM measurements, providing confirmation of target compounds with information-rich ion spectra.
“All of this means that you can get more data points per peak than ever before from a triple quad,” said Robert Classon, LCMS Business Development Manager, Shimadzu. “Even HPLC peaks that are less than one second wide can be accurately quantitated, so you run samples faster and boost productivity and throughput.”
When paired with the Nexera UHPLC, the LCMS-8030 can provide accurate detection of peaks only one-second wide. In addition, a polarity switching time of 15 msec enables ultra-fast triple quadrupole measurement.
“Researchers who want to use a UHPLC system as a front end to a triple quad… can really boost their productivity,” Classon added. “Users can realistically increase their overall throughput by 50 to 100 percent.”
