Enhanced performance for the LCMS-8045/8050
The LCMS-8050 Upgrade Kit includes three key components.
(UFsweeper III Collision Cell is additionally included in the LCMS-8045 Upgrade Kit.)
- Improved ion sampling efficiency DL (Desolvation Line)
- Improved ion guide with enhanced focusing capabilities UF-Qarray
- Enhanced vacuum efficiency Rotary pump
- Improved the CID efficiency UFsweeper III Collision Cell
Development of UF-Qarray Ion Guide using Shimadzu’s Simulation Technologies
The second technology, newly developed Optdesign modelling software, was used to analyze the complex behavior of ion trajectories when voltages are applied to the expanded ion cloud (Fig. 2).
Using FLUENT and Optdesign simulation models, several prototypes were developed for testing, which led to the UF-Qarray pole geometry final design. This design ejects neutral gas particles in order to reduce noise while achieving greater ion focusing than the previous Qarray design.
