Expanded range of ultra-fast, high-sensitivity applications

Shimadzu has introduced the LCMS-8040 which combines newly improved ion optics and collision cell technology with proprietary ultrafast technologies. This significantly expands the application range and ensures high-sensitivity, high-throughput analysis at lower levels of detection.

A five-fold increase in sensitivity (reserpine, S/N ratio) has been achieved in comparison to the LCMS-8030 model by improving ion focusing and minimizing ion losses between multi-pole lenses.

The fastest scan speed of 15,000 u/s and the fastest polarity switching time of 15 msec, already known from the LCMS-8030, expand in combination with the higher sensitivity the potential range of LC/MS/MS applications. The LCMS-8040 achieves multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) transition speeds of up to 555 MRMs per second utilizing UFsweeper II collision cell technology. UFsweeper II features high-speed ion transport technology that maintains sensitivity and suppresses crosstalk, even for high-speed or simultaneous multi-component analyses.

LabSolutions LCMS software offers a variety of data processing features, including a Quantitation Browser which processes multiple analytes, and a Data Browser which allows users to analyze and compare multiple sets of data in the same window.
