Agilent Technologies Inc. introduces new mass spectrometry system


Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the Agilent 6545 Q-TOF mass spectrometry system, designed to provide added sensitivity for routine analyses.

The new midrange system includes advances in hardware and software that make it both more reliable and easier to use for trace-level analysis of small-molecule compounds in applications such as food safety, environmental testing, forensic toxicology and pharmaceuticals.

The 6545 is engineered to be Agilent’s most reliable Q-TOF ever, building on a legacy for LC/MS reliability and adding hardware advances such as ion shaping optics, high-voltage power supplies, and longer-life parts to increase robustness.

The system’s new autotune software leverages particle swarm technology to optimize the instrument for small-molecule analyses with the click of a button. In just about 15 minutes, it optimizes the instrument to get up to five times more sensitivity for small molecule compounds, including low-intensity compounds.
