8050 – LC-MS/MS

High-Sensitivity & High-Speed Scanning at 30,000 u/sec

Enhancements in chromatography and sub-2 micron columns have resulted in narrower peak widths, thereby increasing resolution. Analysts are demanding shorter chromatographic run times while adding more analyses to a single method. With these two factors at play, it is clear that the LCMS-8050’s ultra-fast mass spectrometer can accurately and reliably detect each compound in a sample.

The LCMS-8050 is capable of simultaneously obtaining both qualitative and quantitative information in a single analysis. Rapid acquisition allows MS/MS scans and MRM measurements to be performed concurrently while maintaining quantitative accuracy. MS/MS scans are usable and reliable because even at 30,000 u/sec, Shimadzu uses a 0.1 u scan step.
