AB Sciex QTRAP 5500-Agilent 1290 LC (LC/MS/MS system)
A bench top hybrid triple Quadrupole-Linear Accelerator-trap mass spectrometer is highly sensitive with a mass range of m/z 5-1250 in triple quadrupole mode and m/z 5-1000 in linear ion trap (LIT) mode. Available ionization sources include ESI and APCI. The scan modes include: full scan MS and selected ion scan for both Q1 and Q3, Product Ion Scan, Precursor Ion Scan, Neutral Loss Scan, Multiple Reaction Monitoring and MS3 scan. This instrument is ideal for metabolites present at a very low level (fmol). An Agilent 1290 UHPLC (on the left) is interfaced to support fast LC/MS/MS analysis of complex matrixes. Analyst software is used to pilot the LC/MS system and analyze data.
