Awesome performance with great value
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: Quantitation of drugs in blood plasma

"This instrument was a good value when compared to other vendors when we purchased it. The LabSolutions software is better (or at least easier to use) than some others on the market. The instrument is six years old and is very reliable. Service is also good."

Great results - user interface needs some work!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Extracted amino acids from complex matrices

"The product is extremely effective. The interface is where most people struggle, as it requires a baseline knowledge of tricks and tips from an experienced user to get the best experience. There can be a slight learning curve here. The other issue for chromatographers is the extra column band broadening as the modules for these instruments can require extensive tubing. In general, we have had a lot of success using the instrument with expert help for method development. I would definitely recommend."

It doesn't work more than 2 months without a problem!
Rating: 2.3

  • Application Area:Food chemistry

"In the short time that the equipment worked correctly it was possible to see that it is practical to use, has good sensitivity and is easy to use in general. The problem with this equipment is that it does not work for more than two months without appearing any problem and stop. In two and a half years it doesn't work more than 40 percent of the time. After the warranty period the problems are still accumulating without a guarantee that having enough budget will solve them. This also depends on the representation of the country and, if it is Portugal, I advise you to not buy. The lab's worst acquisition ever."

A Good Reliable Instrument
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:small molecule quantification

"A very sensitive, easy to maintain workhorse triple-quad for low-level quantification of small molecules. Like most software for complex instruments, it takes a while to get used to but it is very powerful and logical. The local technical support team have been great, very responsive and knowledgeable. We have had only one year of experience with this instrument, but it has met our expectations in all but one area. It does not have a heated ESI source, so we have had to modify some methods that were transferred from an instrument that does have a heated source. In the future, I would not purchase an instrument without a heated ESI, which is not available on this model."

System is "working horse" for labs. Reliable ms-system.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:bioequivalence of pharmacy drugs

"This LCMS is reliable and reproducibility for bioequivalence analysis. LC-system one of the best system. But the software is not easy to use. Cheap for a mass-spectrometer."

Excellent value for money, very reliable
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Environmental Analysis

"We have been working with Shimadzu LC-IT-TOF mass spectrometry system since 2007. We have acquired a LCMS/MS model 8040 system last year. The mass spectrometer is connected to a Nexera series 30 UHPLC. The performance and reliability is quite impressive. With this instrument we have done several research works at master and PhD. level analysis of emerging contaminants of concern and also routine benzene exposure biomarkers (uSPMA and uTTMA). "

Review date: 24 Sep 2014 | LCMS-8040 Triple Quadrupole Liquid Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer

Consumer demand for higher quality products has led to the implementation of stricter government regulations and oversight in order to ensure safety and product conformity. The food safety community is just one sector requiring lower minimum residue levels with greater testing frequency for a broader number of compounds. The triple quad LCMS-8040 has stepped up to the challenges of high-throughput sensitive routine analysis. As shown, the LCMS-8040 can analyze a 226-pesticide mixture in less than two minutes, making it an ideal instrument for meeting a laboratorys demanding requirements.

Key Features:

  • Ultra-High Sensitivity

By incorporating newly improved ion optics and collision cell technology, the LCMS-8040 provides higher multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) sensitivity. A five-fold increase in sensitivity (reserpine, S/N ratio), as compared with that of LCMS-8030 has been achieved by improving ion focusing and minimizing ion losses between multi-pole lenses. These improvements also yield higher sensitivity for scan mode measurements. This higher sensitivity expands the potential range of LC/MS/MS applications.

  • Ultra-High Speed

The LCMS-8040 was designed to provide significantly higher sensitivity while maintaining the high speed offered by the LCMS-8030. Ultrafast MRM transition speeds, up to 555 MRMs per second, are achieved by Shimadzus UFsweeper collision cell technology, proprietary high-precision quadrupole machining capabilities, and unique high voltage power supply technology. In addition, the LCMS-8040 features the fast polarity switching at 15 msec. With this high-speed performance, the LCMS-8040 can dramatically improve analytical throughput.

  • Ultra-High Reliability

MRM optimization in Shimadzus LCMS systems is based on a rapid series of automated flow injection analyses, requiring only minutes to perform. Multiple compounds can be optimized in an unattended sequence, freeing the analyst from tedious work. MRM parameters optimized for the LCMS-8030 can be transferred to the LCMS-8040, making it possible to transfer methods between systems. The LCMS-8040 offers the same ease of maintenance benefits as the LCMS-8030, and all consumables, such as desolvation lines (DL) and ESI capillaries, are interchangeable as well.
