New Products: New ESI Electrodes from AB Sciex

Premium

AB Sciex this week unveiled new electrospray ionization electrodes for use with its Eksigent microflow UHPLC systems.

The new electrodes have a smaller diameter than conventional ESI electrodes, which minimizes peak dispersion, leading to improved separations and sharper, narrower sample peaks, the company said.

The electrodes are designed to work with the Eksigent ExpressHT Ultra system in combination with AB Sciex QTRAP, Triple Quad, and TripleTOF mass spectrometers.
