Building from the company’s best-selling SCIEX Triple Quad™ for over 10 years, users can now get triple quad sensitivity plus QTRAP® functionality in one system.

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, launches the SCIEX Triple Quad™ 5500+ LC-MS/MS System – QTRAP® Ready, coupling triple quadrupole and QTRAP® functionality in a single system to deliver higher data confidence from the same sample. The QTRAP® functionality can be implemented at any time by simply activating a field upgradable license, empowering users to future-proof their labs.

Combining these two instruments into one was the product of clear customer feedback, specifically those in the food, environmental, forensics, pharma and life science research fields, voicing the need for an instrument with increased efficiency and dynamic range. While the triple quadrupole provides best-in-class quantification, the QTRAP® functionality adds depth to data quality with the Linear Ion Trap.

Key features of the SCIEX Triple Quad™ 5500+ LC-MS/MS System – QTRAP®Ready include:

  • Increased Polarity Switching Time: Increased efficiency of positive and negative ion analysis in the same acquisition – with 5 msec in MRM and Scheduled MRM™ – analyzes more analytes in a single run without compromising data quality
  • Linear Dynamic Range of up to 6 orders: Produces highly precise, quantified data to see low-level trace detection through to excessively abundant analytes in any application
  • QTRAP® functionality: 12,000 Da/sec enables speedy qualitative confirmation of crucial analytes in parallel with MRM quantitative data

“The SCIEX Triple Quad™ 5500+ LC-MS/MS System – QTRAP® Ready is a combination of two of our leading technologies, offering the optimal quantification and data acquisition from any given sample to meet a number of regulatory and analytical requirements, now and in the future,” says Dominic Gostick, Vice President and General Manager, LC-MS, SCIEX.
