  • Application Area:Small molecule analysis

"I'm normally not a fan of the buggy LC/MS software analyst , but even Analyst makes more sense than the Class-VP / LabSolutions software (which is albeit a step up from Class-VP). Nothing about the software is intuitive, it's impossible to transfer methods between machines without glitching the software, and should your oven temperature fluctuate in the slightest at any point on your run, you should just give up science and become a lawyer. After-sales care seems ok but expensive. However, Shimadzu's much cheaper than the competition, which is why you probably don't see many complaints about say, the meat quality of a hot dog compared to its more expensive, Waters-y steak brethren."

  • Application Area:Identification and Quantification

"This instrument is easy to use and the software is too. The price of this instrument is not too expensive compared to other companies. I can sometimes do the maintenance myself; however, if I do need a serviceman, they make it happen as soon as possible."

  • Application Area:Natural Product Research

"It is a very interesting bench top Single Quadrupole MS system (SQ-MS) with a nice software package (Labsolutions). Easy to maintain by cleaning all parts of MS source. It’s quite sensitive. The software is not so intuitive but very complete. Quite easy to tune but problems by using PEG solution."

  • Application Area:Protein purification and analysis

"Great instrument, easy to analyze the data, effective resolution, fit for purpose."

Review date: 27 Jul 2012 | LCMS-2020
Utilizing patented ultrafast (UF) technology, the LCMS-2020 mass spectrometer offers faster measurements and higher detection sensitivity for quicker and more accurate detection of trace impurities in a variety of applications.

When combined with a Nexera UHPLC or Prominence ultra-fast LC (UFLC/ UFLCXR), you’ll achieve the ultimate in separation performance and productivity.

The ESI method typically used for LCMS can be replaced with APCI, which is suitable for neutral compounds, or with a dual ionization source (DUIS) for simultaneous operation of both ionization modes, quickly and without tools. Selection of the DUIS ionization mode (ESI or APCI) can be performed via the computer. In addition, the desolvation line, where the ions enter the MS unit, can be replaced without breaking vacuum.

LCMS-2020 Features:

  • Ultrafast scanning speed of 15,000 u/sec, without sacrificing sensitivity or resolution
  • Unsurpassed 15 msec polarity switching speed, for the most data without peak deterioration in a single injection
  • Multiple Ionization options – ESI, APCI, and DUIS
  • Dual Ion Source – truly enables simultaneous ESI and APCI analysis
  • Easy system maintenance – enables greater uptime and usability
  • Innovative ion optics—provide greater sensitivity than any other single quadrupole analyzer
  • Backwards compatible – no need to upgrade your HPLC
