Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced two new liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry systems (LCMS), the Agilent 6495D LC/TQ and the Agilent Revident LC/Q-TOF. To facilitate the high-end performance of the Revident LC/Q-TOF, Agilent has also announced the new Agilent MassHunter Explorer Profiling software and the new Agilent ChemVista library manager software.
The 6495 LC/TQ incorporates numerous intelligence features that address the critical transition between the ‘discovery phase’ of research and the ‘translational phase’ where studying a large volume of samples is crucial for generating meaningful scientific insights. The 6495 LC/TQ instrument was built for research with production-ready robustness, ensuring increased sample measurements due to greater efficiency and reduced instrument downtime. Intelligence features also include sub-millisecond dwell times and Intelligent Reflex designed to provide fast, sensitive, high-quality data, while early maintenance feedback and scheduled tuning aim to keep the LC/TQ in peak working condition.
The Agilent Revident Quadrupole Time-of-Flight LC/MS (LC/QTOF) System offers an entirely new instrument architecture coupled with instrument intelligence for maximized operation time and productivity. Revident is targeted toward food safety and environmental analysis but also has applications in other small molecule markets, from metabolomics to pharmaceuticals. Incorporating the new MassHunter Explorer Software, untargeted analyses are simplified by allowing data exploration, including statistical analysis and identification in a single software. Tasks can be performed faster with fewer errors and less expertise without compromising quality or accuracy. Additionally, the new ChemVista library manager software integrates extensive curated libraries. It enables third-party import and export into a tool that conveniently connects to MassHunter, allowing access to vast external databases for identification workflows.
