Agilent’s Rapid Resolution LC System now Fully Compatible with MS Line from Applied Biosystems/MDS Sciex
News Nov 14, 2006
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced that its 1200 Series Rapid Resolution Liquid Chromatography (RRLC) system is now fully compatible with the line of mass spectrometers from Applied Biosystems/MDS Sciex.
Applied Biosystems/MDS Sciex has released its Analyst 1.4.2 LC/MS control software, which is designed to enable integrated control of the Agilent 1200 Series RRLC as well as Applied Biosystems/MDS Sciex’s entire line of triple quadrupole and linear ion trap mass spectrometers.
Applied Biosystems/MDS Sciex is reselling the Agilent 1200 Series LC under an original equipment manufacturer agreement with Agilent.
"Lab managers have a variety of specific needs, and we strive to remove the barriers to building the labs they desire," said Tony Owen, Agilent Liquid Phase Separations Division marketing manager.
"When we designed the 1200 Series LC, we made it reverse-compatible so that users of our older LC systems could easily migrate to the new system."
"Now, Applied Biosystems/MDS SCIEX mass spectrometer users can enjoy the same compatibility with a rapid-resolution LC system that is 20 times faster and delivers 60 percent higher resolution than conventional HPLC. The 1200 Series can also be used for conventional HPLC, providing additional flexibility."
What effects does climate change have on the genetic diversity of living organisms? An international team of researchers studied the genome of the alpine marmot, an ice-age remnant that now lives in large numbers in the high altitude Alpine meadow. Results were unexpected: the species was found to be the least genetically diverse of any wild mammal studied to date.
