The ACQUITY® SQD combines the resolution, sensitivity, and speed of UltraPerformance® technology with single quadrupole MS detection. Designed specifically for chromatographers performing UPLC®/MS analysis, it offers a simple yet powerful solution for multi-tasking, fast-paced laboratory environments – with robust and reliable performance, and walk-up operation for any expertise level.
The ACQUITY UPLC® System’s ability to produce narrow peaks and spectral quality from the ACQUITY SQD allows easy identification of compounds in applications, including:
Rapid data acquisition capability:
Automated instrument optimization and quantitative method development tools:
Versatile Range of robust ionization options:
Comprehensive software control and applications:
Intelligent Services Delivery Platform
Connections INSIGHT® intelligent services provides on-demand, remote diagnostics and online help for your LC/MS system.
The ACQUITY® SQD provides more quality information about your samples in less time. The SQ Detector delivers 10,000 Da/sec scan speeds and interscan delays as low as 20 msec to accommodate the narrowest UPLC peaks.
Broad quantitative linearity is demonstrated over a range of 1 pg to 2,000 pg on-column for reserpine.
High quantitative reproducibility is shown for 10 pg reserpine injections on-column (n=20)
IntelliStart™ Technology automates system setup so that non-expert users can acquire data with confidence that the system is operating optimally.
An integrated system of fluidics, electronics, and software continually monitors system performance. Through a series of diagnostic checks, the MS detector can report when it is ready for use. Any failures trigger a red-light system status, which warns that action may be required before analysis can proceed.
