Perkin Elmer is to launch the Flexar SQ 300 mass spectrometry platform for pharmaceutical, chemical, environmental and food safety applications at the ASMS Conference on 23-27 May 2010.
The Flexar SQ 300 MS system combines efficient chromatographic separation with mass spectrometry detection capabilities and is designed for analysts seeking a fast, accurate and robust system to quickly identify and quantify compounds.
The mass detection system provides a rugged ion source design and wide molecular weight detection range for high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) applications.
Suitable for use in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, the Flexar SQ 300 MS platform enables efficient and reliable ionisation of compounds in both positive and negative modes for the efficient analysis of a range analytes.
For food and environmental testing applications, a patented multi-stage ion path allows for multi-residue analysis with high limits of detection sensitivity.
Moreover, advanced Collision Induced Dissociation (CID) technology enables fragmentation for further confirmation of molecular structure.
Flexar SQ 300 MS offers ease of switching between the Ultraspray ESI and Field-free APCI ion sources and fast interchangeability of probes.
The probes can be specific to a user, application or sample type, helping to minimise the risk of cross-contamination and instrument downtime.
Its grounded ion source design allows for quick and safe probe installation.
The probe position can be easily optimised for different flows and chemical environments to maintain good ionisation performance.
Designed for multiple applications, Flexar's three-tier performance platform ranges from analytical to UHPLC and features a range of pumps, autosamplers and detectors that can be configured and integrated with the system.
Control of the Flexar SQ 300 MS detection system is driven by Perkin Elmer's Chromera CDS software platform.
Chromera's intuitive interface can be configured for multi-detection capabilities.
The software helps streamline workflow for efficient sample analysis and data acquisition.
