Sciex TripleTOF 6600+ LC-MS/MS System

Sciex has launched the TripleTOF 6600+ LC-MS/MS System with ScanningSwath Acquisition alongside high-performance data processing with OneOmics in Sciex Cloud. The latest entry in Sciex's TripleTOF portfolio, the new platform incorporates simplified low-flow source technology to deliver accessible, sensitive and robust quantification; while multiple software-enabled improvements increase robustness and maximize system uptime, Sciex said.

Other features include OptiFlow Turbo V Source for all low-flow applications, with flow rates of 100 nL/min to 200 L/min; up to 100 Hz MS/MS scan speeds; and Analyst TF Software 1.8, which features scheduled ionization and target TIC function to give users temporal control over the number of ions entering the systems.

Sciex also introduced ScanningSwath Acquisition to be hosted on the system. This feature immortalizes samples by creating a digital data record of all detectable analytes, capturing more detail about potential markers than its predecessor, Sciex said.
