Very High Sensitivity and Speed Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometer Launched
08 Aug 2012

Shimadzu UK has launched a high-end liquid chromatography mass spectrometer – the LCMS-8080 – which delivers best-in-class sensitivity, high quality data and fast cycle times. An extension of its Ultra Fast Mass Spectrometry (UFMS) range, the new model’s high speed capabilities increase productivity in the laboratory by delivering accurate measurements first time.

Ideal for users requiring information rich analyses, the LCMS-8080 can be used across a wide range of applications including food safety testing, drugs of abuse screening as well as in clinical, environmental and ADME laboratories. The instrument delivers high quality and accurate data over long periods of use due to its simple and rapid method development.

The innovative Coaxial Hot Gas Desolvation source is fundamental in delivering the LCMS-8080’s enhanced sensitivity as it focuses the ion plume and improves ionization efficiency. This is further enhanced by Hot Source Induced Desolvation which removes solvent noise, followed by high performance pumping and a multi-orthogonal inlet. The LCMS-8080’s class-leading sensitivity allows accurate quantitation of low level analytes, plus the model provides outstanding ruggedness when measuring target compounds in complex matrices.
