Review date: 20 Dec 2013

Application Area: Bioanalysis
4000 QTRAP® LC/MS/MS System

"The most used triple quadrupole in the area of bioanalysis and still a very sensitive system even if you have the new systems on the market: API 5500, API 6500. The API 4000 QTRAP is very useful for metabolic studies especially C14 studies. Getting a second hand system is quite easy. I would advise to just use a front end HPLC or UPLC from shimadzu."

Application Area: Chemical and biological deuteration of organic molecules
4000 QTRAP® LC/MS/MS System

"It is easy to use and is very useful for getting a quick MS to monitor the level of deuteration achieved during the course of a reaction. The accuracy is high enough to enable calculation of percentage deuteration."

4000 QTRAP® LC/MS/MS System

"Good instrument to perform targeted analysis (e.g. by MRM). It can handle many transitions at the same time (our method has over 120 and it works well). However there are several problems with the Analyst software that have not been solved even in the 1.6 version (frequent crash, turbo heaters suddenly stop working and you have to re-save the method...)."

4000 QTRAP® LC/MS/MS System

"I utilize the AB sciex 4000 Qtrap on a daily basis, in an LC-MS set up. This instrument set up for easy set up and ran by beginners. This was my first MS to ever run solo, and it was quick to pick up and utilize with the software. We utilize this set up for water research and it works great. It also requires minimal maintenance."

Description

 

The 4000 QTRAP® LC/MS/MS System is AB SCIEX's premier Hybrid Triple Quadrupole/Linear Ion trap mass spectrometer. Ideal for drug discovery and development, metabolite identification, contaminant testing, and proteomic applications including post-translationally modified proteins discovery, protein identification, and biomarker validation.

Features of the 4000 QTRAP® LC/MS/MS System:

  • Enables high-sensitivity full-scan MS, MS/MS, and MS3 with high-selectivity from true triple quadrupole precursor ion (PI) and neutral loss (NL) scans.
  • Perform multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) for quantitation using high-sensitivity triple quadrupole.
  • Identify, characterize, and quantitate metabolites more quickly and easily.
  • Identify and sequence post-translationally modified (PTM) peptides automatically in a single LC/MS/MS run.
  • Facilitates hypothesis-driven biomarker discovery and validation.
