Maximized sensitivity, minimized matrix effects
In the newly-developed IonFocus unit, the ion transport electrodes reduce sensitivity loss from matrix effects by expelling neutral matrix particles with greater efficiency. The graphs below show an analysis example of residual pesticides in tea leaves. Using the LCMS-8060NX's world-class polarity reversal speed (5 ms) and data capture speed (1.5 ms), stable data was obtained even for high-speed analysis of multiple components. The IonFocus unit also introduces ions into the detector more efficiently, improving the signal intensity. Of the 100 compounds tested, 96% showed excellent recoveries.
The LCMS-8060NX employs new ion guides, the UF-Qarray II and the UF-Lens II, to increase robustness while maintaining high ion transmission efficiency. Improved robustness means higher laboratory throughput as maintenance interval times increase.
The urine metabolite data shown below provides confidence for the analysis of biological matrices. After the analysis of 1000 urine samples, prepared only by dilution with water, the LCMS-8060NX delivers superior data stability without loss of sensitivity.
New AI-derived parameters optimized for a wide range of compounds
The LCMS-8060NX uses new default parameters optimized for a wide range of compounds based on research with AI (Artificial Intelligence) processes, enabling excellent results without the need for labor-intensive investigation of analysis conditions. As shown below, this boosts the signal intensity for a variety of target compounds to an average of 2.6 times the intensity achieved with previous parameters.
Efficient desolvation for higher efficiency
A new heat-assisted design improves the desolvation efficiency and dramatically enhances the sensitivity for challenging molecules such as steroid hormones.
