Reliable, robust equipment! Will no longer be serviceable.
Rating: 2.7

  • Application Area: Veterinary Science

"Our company was originally looking into using an older model of the SCIEX Capillary Electrophoresis MODEL P/ACE MDQ. This particular equipment was over a decade old and still running great! It is reliable and robust. The biggest issue with use of the equipment is the very specific tray setup that requires vials to be ran in a certain way or the system might clash and cause an issue during analysis. The system unfortunately is no longer going to be covered by the manufacturer and they will no longer sell the maintenance parts for the equipment. With that being said, this model is living on borrowed time and will not be of reliable use in the foreseeable future."

Review date: 05 Mar 2018 | P/ACE™ MDQ

A CE-based analytical system configured optimally for the methods development process, where a focus is placed on spectral analysis and the automation of separation strategies. The system includes a P/ACE™ MDQ configured with both a photo diode array and selectable-wavelength UV/Vis (200, 214, 254 and 280 nm filters included) detector, UV source optics, temperature-controlled sample storage module and 32 Karat™ Software configured on an IBM personal computer. Installation Qualification, Operation Qualification 1 (OQ1) and documentation to aid in software validation is also included.
