  Working Principles
Click to ViewLC-MS/MS enables quantitative and qualitative analysis within a single system. Use of a quadrupole mass spectrometer as a linear ion trap significantly enhances ion trap performance by increasing ion capacity, improving injection and trapping efficiencies, and increasing duty cycle.The high sensitivity of this instrument ensures low detection limits. Efficient ionization and superior ion sampling of the interface result in excellent sensitivity. Easy-to-use Turbo V Source allows to quantitate over a wide range of flow rates and to change rapidly between atmospheric-pressure chemical ionization (APCI) and TurboIonSpray Probes. The optional DuoSpray Ion Source accelerates method development and increases both throughput and data quality. An additional option for APCI, the PhotoSpray Source, expands the range of compounds for analysis. The software applications enable automated MS to MS/MS acquisition, allows to extract the maximum amount of information from a single LC-MS run.The superior ionization efficiency, enhanced robustness, and ease-of-use of the innovative Turbo V Source, combined with the LINAC Collision Cell give high performance and high productivity with greater confidence.
