AB SCIEX has announced the introduction of the Triple Quad 3500 System, an enhanced basic mass spectrometry system that meets the evolving demands of food and environmental testing laboratories for research use. The Triple Quad 3500 system was developed based on customer and industry feedback, resulting in a modernized, system that delivers quantitative performance at a price point affordable by labs with limited budget or those new to mass spectrometry.
The system incorporates the AB SCIEX proprietary TurboV Ion Source and Curtain Gas interface to give labs consistent data quality over long runs with minimal downtime. Upgrades over the API 3200 system include faster scan speeds, improved polarity switching, enhanced sensitivity, updated electronics, and new data acquisition algorithms to maximize throughput and ensure that all targeted compounds are reliably detected in every injection.
To help simplify the adoption of mass spec technology for new customers, AB SCIEX is also providing tools and support to overcome the biggest bottlenecks in routine food or environmental testing—data processing and method development. The Triple Quad 3500 package includes MultiQuant software, which simplifies data processing, review, and reporting, and is easy to adopt for new users.
