Waters Vion IMS QTof Mass Spectrometer and Oasis PRiME HLB for Solid Phase Extraction
Waters has launched the Vion IMS QTof Mass Spectrometer. The benchtop tandem mass spec instrument features ion mobility to remove spectral interferences and generate collision cross-section values for every ion, giving scientists more information than they can get from traditional LC-MS experiments, the company said. The platform also features the REIMS Research System with iKnife sampling, combining direct-from-sample ionization with high-performance time-of-flight mass spectrometry.
Waters also introduced the Oasis PRiME HLB next-generation solid phase extraction product, designed to provide cleaner samples in less time and with less effort for LC and LC-MS analyses. Laboratories can now process samples up to 40 percent faster and deliver samples that are up to 70 percent cleaner with fewer LC-MS matrix effects than samples prepared using other extraction techniques, the company said.
