Shimadzu has released the LCMS-9030 quadrupole time-of-flight liquid chromatograph mass spectrometer. It is a research-grade mass spectrometer designed for high-resolution, accurate mass detection with fast data acquisition rates. It utilises the same engineering as Shimadzu’s proven, rugged, high-performance triple quadrupole (LC-MS/MS) platform and integrates this with TOF architecture. In the LCMS-9030, core ion beam technologies have a new approach in ion gating using UFaccumulation™ to create a precise pulse of ions in the flight tube optimised for high sensitivity and high resolution using iRefTOF™ reflectron technology. The iRefTOF™ generates an ideal reflectron field, delivering the highest resolution for the flight path with highly stable mass accuracy.
