The QSight LC/MS/MS dual-source technology, ESI or APCI, provides the capability to analyze a broad range of both polar and nonpolar molecules. For pesticides applications, GC-MSMS, and LC-MSMS amenable compounds can be analyzed on the QSight LC/MS/MS alone, reducing analysis time.
Maintenance of lab equipment is another task that takes time and can slow a lab down. QSight LC/MS/MS features StayClean™ technology, a hot-surface-induced desolvation (HSID™) system which is estimated to provide 15% higher uptime than conventional LC/MS/MS systems.
The QSight HSID interface is coupled to a Laminar flow ion guide™, both of which prevent accumulation of contamination along the ion path, eliminating sample preparation (dilute-and-shoot technique) for trace level pesticide analysis in complex samples – which leads to higher lab productivity.
