Product News: AB SCIEX Announces the 4500MD Series for In Vitro Diagnostic UseIndustry leader increases mass spectrometry portfolio for clinical testing laboratories
AB SCIEX, a global leader in analytical technologies, has confirmed its commitment to support the diagnostic market with the unveiling of the Triple Quad™ 4500MD and QTRAP® 4500MD LC/MS/MS systems under its SCIEX Diagnostics brand. The systems were showcased at the AACC 2014 Annual Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo last week.
Expected to be available in the US and select EU countries in September, the 4500MD series joins the company’s growing family of in vitro diagnostic devices, including the 3200MD*, and IVD-MS™ Analyzer* systems launched in 2013, as well as a series of kits* for vitamin D, immunosuppressants and newborn screening testing to be available in August 2014 for use in certain European countries.
The new 4500MD series offers exceptional sensitivity and faster data acquisition over previous systems allowing clinical customers to obtain reliable results so physicians and patients have accurate answers quickly.
The 4500MD series is a flexible LC/MS/MS platform that offers enhanced performance, improved sensitivity and faster data acquisition, to enable customers developing their own applications to validate methods that require lower detection limits or higher throughput, with the peace of mind afforded by a regulatory compliant solution.
“As scientific understanding progressively evolves into improved clinical diagnostic testing, diagnostic customers who develop their own assays are turning to fast, sensitive instruments to perform routine tests with high efficiency and cost savings,” said Chris Radloff, Vice President, Applied Markets and Clinical Research at AB SCIEX. “By bringing the power, flexibility, reliability, and accuracy of our mass spectrometry technology to clinical testing laboratories, AB SCIEX is enabling customers to deliver high quality diagnostic information to clinicians who make decisions affecting patient care.”
SCIEX Diagnostics is focused on delivering high quality technology, service and support to the clinical diagnostics market and is part of AB SCIEX.
