Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometer (LCMS) – Agilent Technologies 6470

Agilent 6470 QQQ Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometer.

Agilent 6470 QQQ Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometer

The Agilent 6470 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS system is at the forefront of robustness, reliability and accuracy, which makes it a perfect option for many applications, including peptide quantitation, food safety, environmental, clinical research and forensics. The Agilent 6470 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS delivers superior sensitivity for trace level analysis with performance specifications in signal-to-noise (S/N) and instrument detection limit (IDL). It achieves sensitivity and resolution specifications with autotune.
