Agilent Technologies Launches New Research-Grade Triple Quadrupole LC/MS System
Agilent Technologies (News - Alert) Inc. (NYSE: A) today expanded its portfolio of
scientific instruments with a new LC/MS system that provides even
greater sensitivity and accuracy for applications such as peptide
quantitation, food safety, environmental testing, clinical research and
The new Agilent 6495B Triple Quadrupole LC/MS System combines
high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and triple quadrupole mass
spectrometry in an integrated system that delivers outstanding
Built on the success of the 6495A Triple Quadrupole LC/MS System, the
6495B provides improved mass range, scan speed and polarity switching -
all of which enable scientists to better analyze molecules from a wide
array of sample matrices.
The 6495B also incorporates a new gate valve that facilitates even
quicker and easier removal of the inlet capillary without having to vent
the instrument, enabling increased uptime and productivity. This new
gate valve can withstand thousandsof opening and closing cycles without
losing its tight vacuum seal. With fewer moving components, it also
minimizes wear and particulate generation, reducing the need for
Coupled with Agilent MassHunter software, which simplifies sample
management and analysis, the Agilent 6495B Triple Quadrupole LC/MS
System accelerates analysis, delivering even more reliable results and
quickly turning data into insights.
"Laboratories demand instruments that provide quick and reliable answers
to their analytical problems," said Monty Benefiel, Agilent vice
president and general manager of the company's Mass Spectrometry
Division. "From low-level quantification of peptides in life science
research, to the detection of mycotoxins and other contaminants in food,
the Agilent 6495B is an excellent choice."
