MRM3 Scan type is the best scan type with this instrument.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:BEBA and Food testing

Up to now the most sensitive triple quad mass spectrometer.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Analyze residues of hormnones and metabolites in tissue samples and food

"Sciex's QTRAP 6500+ is the most sensitive triple quad mass spectrometer available. The system is compatible with a wide range of UPLC chomatographs and can be easily interfaced with multichannel equipment. One of the most interesting feature is the LIT (linear ion trap) that allow intelligent fragmentatio and untargeted screening."

Great after sales care.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Pesticides analysis

"While the software can be a bit clunky for high sample output, I think the Sciex MS/MS system is very good. I think the design is intuitive and makes maintenance really easy and the service after purchase in my area is always available. The system is also pretty robust and can handle some pretty nasty samples. We have 5 6500+ systems in our lab and we enjoy using them."
