Trace level quantitation of multiple compounds


Shimadzu’s new LCMS-8050 triple quadrupole LC-MS/MS meets the growing demand for trace-level quantitation in clinical research and other markets. It incorporates proprietary ultrafast technologies as well as a newly developed ion source and collision cell technology. As the flagship model of Shimadzu’s UFMS (Ultra-Fast Mass Spectrometry) product line, the LCMS-8050 features high sensitivity, high data quality and the world’s fastest data acquisition rates.

Delivering attogram-level (10-18 g) sensitivity and possessing unsurpassed ruggedness, the LCMS-8050 achieves its improved sensitivity through two important technologies:

• Newly designed Heated ESI source improves desolvation and enhances ionization efficiency with the addition of a heated gas used in combination with the nebulizer gas
• UFsweeper®III collision cell enhances CID efficiency by optimizing the collision cell pressure.

The world’s fastest data acquisition rates
The newly engineered high voltage power supply enables a maximum scan rate of 30,000 u/sec and a 5 msec polarity switching time, making the LCMS-8050 combined with Nexera UHPLC the ideal platform for laboratory productivity. It is now possible to include 1,000 events with up to 32 channels per event for a maximum of 32,000 MRMs per analysis.

User-friendly Operation and Easy Maintenance
• Plug-in for the new ion source enables easy changing from ESI to APCI or to dual ionization mode (DUIS)
• The LabSolutions LCMS Version 5.60 software provides seamless integration of HPLC and MS control. An automated MRM optimization routine allows unattended optimization of multiple compounds.
