Agilent Technologies has announced a range of new mass spectrometry products. The new Agilent 6546 quadrupole time-of-flight LC/MS system includes Q-RAI (Quadrupole-Resolved All Ions), a data-independent acquisition mode which reduces the complexity of MS/MS spectra while maximising the accuracy and quality of the data acquired. MassHunter software complementing the Agilent 6546 LC/Q-TOF includes MassHunter Quantitative Analysis 10.0 software with new features that allow quicker and more accurate screening of complex sample sets for both target and suspect compounds in a single workflow. New MassHunter Classifier software which complements the enhanced method development workflow in the Mass Profiler Professional (MPP) software, enabling faster testing for food authenticity with results that are easier to review. MassHunter Lipid Annotator that presents theoretical lipid MS/MS annotations for Q-TOF results with support through the MassHunter Mass Profiler Professional Lipidomics workflow.
Agilent also announced the new Agilent Bravo Metabolomics Sample Prep Platform, which provides consistent and accurate preparation of human plasma samples for metabolomics analysis via LC/MS.
