Agilent Technologies has introduced a new member to its family of triple quadrupole liquid chromatography mass spectrometers (triple quad LC/MS). The Ultivo triple quad is optimised for the food and environmental routine testing segments employing triple quad LC/MS systems for quantitative analyses. Ultivo delivers robust performance, superior uptime and easier serviceability, in a footprint that is 70% smaller than previous instruments. Greater ion transmission efficiency leads to optimised sensitivity; and improved, intelligent diagnostics use intuitive readbacks that can quickly identify issues, ensuring optimum uptime. Furthermore, Ultivo’s new VacShield vacuum provides vent-less ion injector exchange capabilities that reduce wear and tear and facilitate rapid front-end maintenance.
Ultivo’s integrates seamlessly with the Agilent MassHunter Software suite, providing instrument monitoring, data acquisition, analysis and reporting for currently regulated and emerging environmental contaminants and pollutants in our water supplies. Also, Ultivo’s fine-tuning ensures accuracy, with selectivity, sensitivity and precision monitoring, to deliver specific identification and quantitation of a wide range of contaminants.
