The IonSABRE LockSpray Exact Mass Upgrade Kit provides your LCT Premier™ mass spectrometer with the same exact mass data acquisition capabilities as the LCT Premier XE instrument. The dual purpose kit enables instruments already configured with IonSABRE and electrospray probes to acquire both APCI and ESCi exact mass data.
In IonSABRE exact mass mode, the optimized IonSABRE probe provides you with improved APCI sensitivity compared with ESCi operation using the standard ESI probe.
With ESCi exact mass mode operation, your confidence in compound identification can be increased by the simultaneous acquisition of ESI and APCI data in a single run, using the standard ESI probe while also providing comprehensive compound coverage.

The IonSABRE LockSpray Upgrade Kit is only suitable for LCT Premier instruments already equipped with an IonSABRE APCI probe.
The additional APCI/ESCi exact mass functionality components are also included in the IonSABRE APCI probe accessory kit for LCT Premier instruments that are not yet able to acquire IonSABRE APCI data.
A minimum of MassLynx™ 4.1 Software is required for IonSABRE ESCi/APCI LockSpray functionality.
Previous generation LCT™ instruments cannot be upgraded to either APCI exact mass or ESCi operation.
Equipment and Installation
The Upgrade Kit includes a replacement IonSABRE probe heater assembly, a new design of corona pin, an ESCi/APCI LockSpray baffle and software update. The existing LockSpray interface motor controller electronics also require modification to support operation of the new spray baffle.
The kit requires installation and operation proofing by a Waters Field Service Engineer.
