  • Application Area: Identification and discovery of organic compounds (pesticides + pharmaceuticals) and their metabolit

"We have had this instrument for the last five years and we are very pleased. It is highly accurate (no need to calibrate everyday) and it always deliver excellent data. The instrument is robust and reliable. Nowadays in the world of environmental analytical chemistry it is highly important to obtain information on exact elemental composition and this instrument gives that information at a high level of accuracy. "

  • Application Area:Metabolomics

"We found Agilent 6550 QTOF LCMs very easy to use and extremely sensitive. All of the instruments operations are made streamlined with the software along with the supporting materials. By employing ion funnel technology in combination with 4GHz processing, Agilent has achieved making this instrument very sensitive and selective for Metabolomics application for both cell extracts and body fluids. It also provides speedy data collection. By providing highly integrated software like Mass hunter, Mass Profinder and MPP, it has made exciting metabolomics experiments a routine job with minimal effort and can be automated. Such analyses were very complicated and required many different software and expertise previously."

6500 Series Accurate-Mass Quadrupole Time-of-Flight (Q-TOF) LC/MS

The Agilent 6500 Accurate-Mass Q-TOF LC/MS systems provide superior data quality and advanced analytical capabilities for profiling, identifying, characterizing, and quantifying low molecular-weight compounds and biomolecules with confidence.

These Q-TOF systems deliver exceptional MS and MS/MS analyses that support demanding applications such as proteomics, metabolomics, impurity testing, product degradation studies, forensics, food safety, and environmental analyses.

The new 6540 Q-TOF delivers outstanding performance characteristics without speed related performance compromises (sensitivity, dynamic range, isotopic fidelity, mass range) associated with orbital trapping instruments.

6500 Series Accurate-Mass Quadrupole Time-of-Flight (Q-TOF) LC/MS Features:

  • Achieve femtogram-level sensitivity – iFunnel increases ion transfer to achieve the lowest detection levels of any high resolution LC/MS instrument.
  • Maintain resolution and mass accuracy – Ion Beam Compression and Shaping (IBCS) technology provides the greatest sensitivity while maintaining 40k mass resolution and sub ppm mass accuracy from m/z 20-10,000.
  • Reach new scan speeds – New electronics and software algorithms enable scanning of up to 50 spectra per second.
  • Improve sensitivity for high-throughput applications – Agilent Jet Stream technology combined with improved ion optics provide 5x greater on-column sensitivity and increase up time to maintain the highest sensitivity for high throughput applications.
  • Increase dynamic range – In-spectrum dynamic range of up to 5 orders of magnitude reveals trace-level targets, even in the presence of much more abundant compounds.
  • Ensure high-quality data – Automated tuning optimizes system performance to ensure high quality data for a broad spectrum of applications.
  • Powerful MassHunter Workstation Software takes advantage of accurate mass MS and MS/MS and high definition isotopic data to facilitate profiling, characterization, identification and quantification of compounds in complex mixtures.
