Advion's TriVersa NanoMate® System is Now Compatible with Waters' Xevo™ and SYNAPT™ Mass Spectrometers
Product News Sep 09, 2009
Advion BioSystems, Inc. (Advion) and Waters Corporation jointly announced at the 18th International Mass Spectrometry Conference (IMSC) that Advion's TriVersa NanoMate® chip-based nanoelectrospray ionization system is now compatible with the full range of Waters® mass spectrometry (MS) systems including the newest Xevo™ and SYNAPT™ G2 systems.
The TriVersa NanoMate is an automated fraction collection and nanoelectrospray system that connects to the inlet of a mass spectrometer. It combines the benefits of micro or capillary-scale liquid chromatography (LC), with simultaneous fraction collection and subsequent chip-based infusion of the LC fractions in one system to increase the performance and automation of MS, allowing analysts to obtain more information from complex samples than with LC/MS alone.
Advion and Waters have collaborated to interface the TriVersa NanoMate to the latest high performance MS systems from Waters. These include Waters SYNAPT G2 MS, SYNAPT G2 High Definition Mass Spectrometry™ (HDMS™) platform, Xevo TQ MS, and Xevo QTof, a quadrupole time-of-flight (QTof) mass spectrometer.
"We are really excited about the combination of the TriVersa NanoMate with the latest Xevo and SYNAPT G2 instruments," said Jack Henion, Advion's Chief Scientific Officer. "The unique ability of the TriVersa to perform online LC/MS while collecting fractions for later infusion, coupled to the high resolution, exact mass TOF-MS systems from Waters provides a compelling, versatile tool for antibody analysis, proteomics, metabolite identification and profiling, metabolomics, natural products and many other chemical and biochemical analyses."
Advion has also launched DualSpray™ which provides LockSpray™ capability when using the TriVersa NanoMate with the Waters QTof Premier™, QTof Micro™, SYNAPT MS and SYNAPT HDMS instruments.
DualSpray provides a second nanoelectrospray to provide a reference ‘lock' mass in the same way that Waters' own LockSpray system does, under full control of the Waters MassLynx™ software.
Advion will begin shipments of DualSpray technology for the new Waters Xevo and SYNAPT G2 mass spectrometer product lines in December 2009.
