Shimadzu introduces new LCMS-9050 Q-TOF 06 January 2023

Shimadzu, a global specialist in analytical instrumentation, has introduced the LCMS-9050 Q-TOF mass spectrometer with the company summing up its characteristics in three key points: Accuracy, acceleration and accommodation of users’ needs.

The LCMS-9050 is a quadrupole Time-of-Flight (Q-TOF) mass spectrometer system, with Shimadzu highlighting it has one of the highest mass accuracy stability levels available. Its proprietary high precision temperature control system inhibits even tiny mass variations caused by external factors so that the system can be used to measure accurate mass values without worrying about mass calibration. The ultra-stable polarity switching technology enables the simultaneous analysis of positive and negative ions, contributing to new applications development and heightened analysis efficiency.

For an overall easy, efficient and enhanced analysis performance, Shimadzu has simplified mass calibration, maintenance and other non-analysis procedures – empowering users to spend less time on instrument management and more time on the ‘real data’. Plus, with high-speed for MS/MS, the LCMS-9050 will accelerate the output of results even more.

“Shimadzu’s line-up of varied optional equipment – ranging from the DPiMS™ probe electrospray ionization unit up to the Nexera™ UC supercritical fluid extraction (SFE)/supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) system – helps users to tap the full potential of the LCMS-9050 Q-TOF and – most importantly – their own,” states the company.
