Thermo Finnigan LCQ Advantage MAX LC/MS

The Thermo Finnigan LCQ Advantage MAX is the workhorse ion trap mass spectrometer for high productivity LC/MS/MS results and is easily upgraded to MSn performance.

The Finnigan LCQ Advantage MAX now features the universal Ion Max source that allows simple tool-less switching of ionization probes. Ion Sweep™ gas reduces chemical noise, while a removable ion capillary tube allows for vent-free source maintenance.

Reliability, combined with ease-of-use, make the Finnigan LCQ Advantage MAX an ideal match for the routine HPLC environment. Library searchable MS/MS spectra facilitate unequivocal identification of analytes present in complex matrices. Seamless integration to the Finnigan Surveyor™ and other LC systems, and powerful data analysis capabilities ensure maximum productivity reducing analytical development time within your laboratory.

System Specifications

MS/MS Sensitivity Electrospray Ionization (ESI) – A 2 μL loop injection of a 5-pg/μL solution of reserpine (10 picograms [16 femtomoles] total sample) at a flow of 350 μL/min of 50% isopropyl alcohol/50% water will produce a minimum signal-to-noise ratio of 10:1 for the transition of the unit isolated protonated molecular ion at m/z 609 to the largest product ion, when the mass spectrometer is operated at unit resolution in the full-scan MS/MS mode, scanning the product ion spectrum from m/z 165-615.

Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization (APCI) – A 2 μL loop injection of a 5-pg/μL solution of reserpine (10 picograms [16 femtomoles] total sample) at a flow of 400 μL/min of 50% isopropyl alcohol/50% water will produce a minimum signal-tonoise ratio of 10:1 for the transition of the unit isolated protonated molecular ion at m/z 609 to the largest product ion, when the mass spectrometer is operated at unit resolution in the full-scan MS/MS mode, scanning the product ion spectrum from m/z 165-615.
