st4322 Quattro Micro LC-MS from Waters

This Waters Quattro Micro LC-MS/MS system has been stripped and cleaned to our own exacting standards at Jaytee Biosciences' new labs in Kent (UK) , producing fantastic data (see for download below), enabling you to reach lower detection limits and increase sample throughput for all of your quantitative applications: ADME screening, food safety, environmental monitoring, clinical, bioavailability, and more.

Waters Quattro Micro LC-MS/MS Features include:

  • Accurate, reproducible chromatographic peak area measurement
  • Robust ZSpray atmospheric pressure ionization interface.
  • Versatile range of ionization options.
  • Multimode capability in a single run.
  • Automated instrument optimization and quantitative method development tools.
  • Dedicated application managers for your specialised analytical requirements.
  • Small footprint (390mm x 587 x 810mm) that sits easily on your benchtop

Compound identity confirmation can be achieved with MS/MS using this instrument in ion scan mode. With this mode, product ions are generated and detected for a specified precursor ion. The precursor and product ions, along with their ion ratios, can be used to confirm the identity of a compound.

Specific classes of compounds can be detected with MS/MS using the precursor ion or neutral loss mode. By detecting a specific product ion (precursor ion mode) or charged fragments resulting from a neutral loss (neutral loss mode), you can classify a compound of interest. These modes are helpful for monitoring classes of compounds like glycosylated peptides, glucuronide conjugates and aliphatic hydrocarbons.


  • Acquisition rates up to 5000 amu/sec

  • Quattro Micro LC-MS/MS has verticaly mounted liquid inlet probes to minimise tube length and peak dispersion
  • Software-controlled, integrated syringe pump for easy calibration, tuning and sample infusion
  • Software-controlled divert valve/manual injection valve
  • Control and data acquisition with MassLynx 4.0 Software
  • Edwards E2M28 Rotary Pump
  • IBM PC and TFT Screen
