Impact Analytical Grows with New UPLC-MS: QTOF System
(January 1, 2014)

Impact Analytical has added a new Agilent LC-MS, which couples a 1290 Infinity LC system with a 6530 q-ToF mass spectrometer.  The q-ToF mass spectrometer enables exact mass measurement for enhanced performance in MS and MS/MS with mass accuracy up to 2 ppm. This LC-MS combination delivers simple exact mass measurement of precursor and fragment ions with maximum sensitivity to yield the highest confidence in structure elucidation.  Jet Stream II ESI and multimode ESI/APCI sources are available for sample ionization.  The UHPLC connected to the instrument delivers unmatched chromatographic resolution with the ability to use 1.7 um particle size columns. 

The UHPLC was installed with a variable wavelength detector for simultaneous acquisition of UV and mass spectral data to aid in the identification of unknowns.  The instrument also provides quantitation for analytes of interest. This instrument uses Agilent’s MassHunter Workstation software for more efficient mass spectral data processing.  The system is the ideal choice for the following applications:

  • Pharmaceutical
  • Consumer Products
  • Polymer Additives ID
  • Metabolite ID
  • Food Safety
  • Forensics
  • Toxicology
  • Environmental Screening
