Bruker debuts LC-TQ range.

AT THE 2013 American Society of Mass Spectrometry Meeting (ASMS), Bruker showcased three game-changing LC-triple quadrupole (LC-TQ) mass spectrometers, the high-performance EVOQ Qube, the ultra-high sensitivity EVOQ Elite, and the extended mass range EVOQ Elite, which are setting new standards for analytical performance and quantitative robustness. The EVOQ Qube and the EVOQ Elite were launched last September at Jasis show in Chiba, Japan. The EVOQ Elite provides mass range extension to 2000 m/z enabling the selection of a broader range of compounds.

All EVOQ LC-TQ systems premiering incorporate Bruker's new Advance Ultra-High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) systems. The Advance HPLC, UHPLC, and the UHPLC-OLE products offer ultra-low dead-volume which enables excellent reproducibility at analytical flow-rates, an integrated column-oven, and bench-space savings. Paired with the industry workhorse CTC auto-sampler, the Advance LC portfolio delivers precision and accuracy required for sustained, high-sensitivity LC-MRM quantitative analysis. In addition, the EVOQ platform features several major innovations:

* The industry's first vacuum-insulated probe (VIP) heated electrospray technology preserves and ionises thermally fragile molecules with outstanding sensitivity;

* The active exhaust atmospheric pressure ionization source with a robust orifice vacuum interface significantly enhances quantitative robustness for difficult samples;

* The novel, 'flat-tuning', proprietary Interlaced Quadrupole Dual Funnel (IQ-DF) maximises sensitivity; and

* Novel Pacer software enables 'exception based data-review', a revolutionary feature that significantly reduces the error rate for quantitative analysis.

Bruker's patented lens-free triple-quad mass filter design, which enhances MRM performance, comes standard on all EVOQ systems, making the EVOQ LC-TQ inherently easier to use and maintain.
