Shimadzu has redefined “sensitivity” with the LCMS-8060. The newly developed UF-Qarray ion guide incorporates groundbreaking technology that increases LC-MS/MS sensitivity by enhancing ion signal intensity and reducing noise. By improving the ion sampling device, the ion guide, and the vacuum efficiency, the LCMS-8060 delivers a new standard for sensitivity.
The innovative design of the Qarray allows for enhancement of ion signal while simultaneously reducing noise. This yields ultra-low detection limits, allowing for trace quantitation.
In addition to obtaining high-quality data with extraordinary sensitivity, the LCMS-8060 delivers qualitative information concurrently. Product ion scans can be triggered by a pre-set threshold. This enables the simultaneous collection of multiple MRM events with full scan product ion spectra at different collision energies.
Ultra Fast – Scanning & Switching
The LCMS-8060 delivers the fastest quadrupole scan speed of up to 30,000 u/second with a 0.1 Dalton step size without the loss of mass accuracy. With the fastest polarity switching available, switching acquisition mode from positive to negative only takes 5 msec. Data acquisition occurs so rapidly that triggered MS/MS scans and MRM quantitation can be performed in a single acquisition method.
