Web Information


Quattro micro API is a high performance triple quadrupole mass spectrometer designed for routine LC-MS-MS operation.

The instrument may be coupled to the following liquid introduction systems:

•HPLC system, to provide molecular weight information from an LC run or to
perform target analysis and quantification.

•Syringe pump, for analysis of precious,low-concentration compounds.

Sample ionisation takes place in the source at atmospheric pressure. These ions are
sampled through a series of orifices into the first quadrupole where they are filtered according to their mass to charge ratio (m/z). The mass separated ions then pass into the hexapole collision cell where they either undergo collision induced decomposition (CID) or pass unhindered to the second quadrupole. The fragment ions are then mass analysed by the second quadrupole.

The transmitted ions are finally detected by a conversion dynode, phosphor and
photomultiplier detection system. The output signal is amplified, digitised and presented
to the data system.

The Quattro micro API overcomes these challenges in analytical LC/MS/MS:

-Need for intelligently optimized systems
-Pressure to meet increasing throughput targets
-Necessity to rapidly cross-train analysts
-Demand for better sensitivity and Limits of Quantification
-Requirement to operate in a 21 CFR 11 environment

Networked sample to knowledge converters like the Quattro micro API are a fusion of compact, intelligent mass analyzers and client/server Mass-Informatics operating within the global e-MSTM workspace. The Quattro micro API incorporates the finest high precision tandem quadrupole mass analyzer technology, with a m/z range of 2 - 2000 as standard. Measuring only 1/3 of the width of existing instruments, the Quattro micro API also saves significant linear bench space.
