UK-based CRO Almac said this week it has established a new £1 million ($1.6 million) mass spectrometry laboratory.
According to Jon Cook, the company's head of analytical chemistry, the facility will house seven mass spectrometers, including four new instruments purchased from Agilent.
The new machines include an Agilent 6530 Q-TOF and an Agilent 6460 Triple Quadrupole, both of which have an Agilent 1290 Infinity LC on the front end, Cook told ProteoMonitor. These instruments will be used for accurate mass and quantitation work, the company said.
The other two new Agilent instruments are an Agilent 6224 TOF with a 1290 LC and an Agilent 5975C GC/MS attached to a 7890 GC.
