API 4000™ LC/MS/MS System

"I gave 4 stars for ease of use because of some difficulties with overlay and hard processing while undertaking multi-residue pesticide analysis. But of course I would recommend this system to my colleagues. I love AB SCIEX. Their system is very qualified if a little bit expensive. "

Application Area: biomedical
API 4000™ LC/MS/MS System

"This instrument is easy to use and for most time can produce good quality data. Also it is easy to learn. I am a new user for this instrument and it only took me less than two months to learn how to use it. Although sometimes it may cause some problems but it doesn’t take a long time to fix that. Overall, it is an awesome instrument to help us to move on my project and give me very good data to present. I will definitely recommend this to my colleagues. What I want to know more about this instrument is that how to actually clean the MS part."

Application Area: Environmental analysis
API 4000™ LC/MS/MS System

"This instrument is very good for trace analysis of organic compounds. The sensitivity is pretty good and easy to operate. We used it to analyze PPCP (pharmaceuticals and personal care products) level in drinking water system. We also used it for the detection of the emergency contaminants like DBPs in Missouri drinking water system. Pros: high sensitivity, reliable quantification. Cons: configuration with some LC systems is very complex."
