The Waters 3100 Mass Detector is a compact, single-quadrupole atmospheric pressure ionization (API) mass detector that provides selectivity, sensitivity, and throughput with faster scan speeds.
Designed specifically for chromatographers performing LC/MS analysis, it offers a simple yet powerful solution for multi-tasking, fast-paced laboratory environments – with robust and reliable performance, and walk-up operation for any expertise level.
With very short columns producing fast separations, the 3100 scanning speed can easily keep up with your most demanding requirements. It is typically used for easy identification of compounds in applications ranging from peak purity and impurity profiling, to syntheses confirmation, to product deformulation, to enhanced method development with molecular weight-based peak tracking. For preparative analyses, the 3100 Mass Detector decreases the number of fractions to be handled in the post-purification phase and provides online mass confirmation.
