Really great instrument
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Bioanalysis

"The sensitivity of the instrument is incomparable with most of the other competitors and service support is already well noted in the industry. The current version of the analyst software also has a superior quality compliance with respect to CFR Part 11. As the industry is moving to micro formulations and biosimilars the betterment in sensitivity."

Great instrument for quantitative proteomics
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Quantitative proteomics (MRM)

"The system was used for the quantification of putative biomarkers in complex background (e.g. serum or tissue homogenate). Coupled to a microLC and equipped with a special probe for the IonDrive Turbo V Source, which allowed to run the system at 6 ul/min, highly reproducible results for the quantification of up to 100 proteins per run were achieved. The Turbo V Source was clearly favoured by everybody over the nano spray source."

Sciex's 6500 mass spec is our labs favorite instrument.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Food and nutritional analysis

"I developed a method of natural folate as well as synthetic folate analysis employing a Sceix 6500 mass spec. The sensitivity and the stability of the system let me develop a very sensitive method of folate vitamer analysis in food and supplements accurately and precisely to label the products in compliance to the new labeling regulations by FDA as Dietary Folate Equivalents. I would not have been able to develop the method without the sensitivity and the stability afforded by this mass spec."

Technology platform operation was seamlessly smooth
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:PK Analysis of Large Molecules

"We were able to achieve highly satisfactory results with high sensitivity, selectivity and reproducibility. Technology platform operation was seamlessly smooth and was not challenging to train new team members. Considering the quality MS/MS data from our HTS targeted proteomics studies we deployed two additional 6500 QQQ MS, the after sales-service has been very promising and since over a year we have not encountered any instrument breakdown issues, very rugged instrument. I would be glad to deploy this state-of-the-art technology for future upcoming large molecule related projects and highly recommend it based on my experience."

  • Application Area:Metabolite Analysis in one run

"I had used this instrument after a Phase I and II metabolic incubation with S9 at different time point and with a single injection using an acquisition correlated with a dependent fragmentation I was able to determine with six injections all the metabolite profiling both for kinetic parameter and Metabolite Identification. A really robust instrument with powerful software."

  • Application Area:Residue And E-Fate Metabolism Chemistry

"Just purchased one, the instrument is excellent. They have improved the software making it even better than before. It has high sensitivity and good selectivity fully integrated, the reproducibility is also much better. You can dilute more to a lower matrix effect, but I still recommend clean up steps as they are always necessary! The QTRAP comes with some good metabolite ID Light Sight and its linear dynamic range is very good. Overall it is excellent for residue analysis and metabolism studies. In particular there are many advantages to this system if you do TOX, residue, environmental fate, screening, etc. I highly recommend you get one."
