LCMS-2020

Ultra high-speed mass spectrometer compatible for the first time with ultra high-speed liquid chromatography

UFLC Quality – Speed is Power.

LCMS-2020

High-speed HPLC analysis to improve lab analysis productivity began in 1982 with the Shimadzu LC-5A/FLC column. In 2006, the Prominence UFLC/XR column system achieved ultra high-speeds while ensuring repeatability during continuous multi-sample analysis, in addition to maintaining durability and other forms of data stability. Since general HPLC analysis is insufficient with respect to qualitative capabilities, risks related to overlooking impurities that can obscure peaks remain. Mass spectrometers are effective at minimizing these risks. To date, however, a commercial MS capable of reliably providing the kind of sharp peaks obtained with ultra high-speed LC has not been available.

Now, an ultra high-speed MS, compatible for the first time with ultra high-speed LC, has been released

The ultra high-speed LC/MS Prominence UFLC+LCMS-2020 improves the speed and reliability of HPLC analysis, offering dramatic improvements in lab productivity.

3 points yielding ultra high-speed, ultra high-sensitivity MS measurements

By incorporating the following innovative features into the LCMS-2020, the sharp peaks of ultra high-speed LC won’t be missed:

  • UFswitching (high-speed positive/negative ionization mode switching)
  • UFscanning (high-speed scan measurements)
  • UFsensitivity (superior sensitivity and repeatability thanks to newly developed ion optics)

The UFLC/MS, which continues the tradition of high-level data reliability from the well-received ultra high-speed LC Prominence UFLC, has now been released.

Brief explanation of LCMSMS terminology

MRM

MRM stands for Multiple Reaction Monitoring. In MRM, a specific ion (precursor ion) is selected in Q1 (first stage MS) from among various ions ionized by the ionization probe, the ion is destructed (collision-induced dissociation) in the collision cell (Q2, collision chamber), and a specific ion is detected from among the destructed ions (product ions) in Q3 (second stage MS). Multiple channels can be set in one measurement.

Method Packages

In accordance with regulations, the analysis of trace amounts of components containing many contaminants is now required for residual pesticides in foods and veterinary drugs. LC/MS/MS is often used for these analyses. These method packages are pre-registered with the analysis conditions and compound information of target components. Analysis can now be started without performing difficult or time-consuming tasks required in LC/MS/MS analysis, such as evaluating the separation conditions and optimizing the MS parameters for each compound, to allow efficient batch analysis of multiple components.

LCMS-8040

LCMS-8040 Enhanced Sensitivity

 

LCMS-8040 incorporates newly improved ion optics and collision cell technology to provide higher multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) sensitivity.

These improvements also yield higher sensitivity for scan mode measurements, expanding the potential range of LC/MS/MS applications.

Ultra-High Sensitivity

By incorporating newly improved ion optics and collision cell technology, the LCMS-8040 provides higher multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) sensitivity. A five-fold increase in sensitivity (reserpine, S/N ratio) has been achieved by improving ion focusing and minimizing ion losses between multi-pole lenses. These improvements also yield higher sensitivity for scan mode measurements. This higher sensitivity expands the potential range of LC/MS/MS applications.

Ultra-High Speed

The LCMS-8040 was designed to provide significantly higher sensitivity while maintaining the high speed offered by the LCMS-8030. Ultrafast MRM transition speeds, up to 555 MRMs per second, are achieved by Shimadzu’s UFsweeper™ collision cell technology, proprietary high-precision quadrupole machining capabilities, and unique high voltage power supply technology. In addition, the LCMS-8040 features the world’s fastest* polarity switching at 15 msec. With this high-speed performance, the LCMS-8040 can dramatically improve analytical throughput.

*Per survey result as of May 2012

Ultra-High Reliability

MRM optimization in Shimadzu’s LCMS systems is based on a rapid series of automated flow injection analyses, requiring only minutes to perform. Multiple compounds can be optimized in an unattended sequence, freeing the analyst from tedious work. MRM parameters optimized for the LCMS-8030 can be transferred to the LCMS-8040, making it possible to transfer methods between systems. The LCMS-8040 offers the same ease of maintenance benefits as the LCMS-8030, and all consumables, such as desolvation lines (DL) and ESI capillaries, are interchangeable as well.

LCMS-IT-TOF

The LCMS-IT-TOF is a new type of mass spectrometer that combines QIT (ion trap) and TOF (time-of-flight) technologies. When combining QIT and TOF, the greatest technological challenges were the efficient introduction of ions into the QIT and the simultaneous ejection of trapped ions to the TOF. Here, we introduce the newly developed technologies used to solve these problems.

LCMS-IT-TOF

The source design, desolvation capillary and reduced collision ion focusing Q-Array were adapted from Shimadzu‘s successful single-quad HPLC mass spectrometer. The Octapole Lens can introduce eluted ions from the LC to the ion trap by CII (Compressed Ion Injection) method efficiently. The ion trap QIT gives an efficient MSn capability with our new cleaning technology. In addition, BIE (Ballistic Ion Extraction) technology, provides high resolution / accuracy for all MS, MSn… modes. The temperature control of the flight tube gives a mass stability with stabilizing the length of the ion flight and ion acceleration voltage which affects the mass stability. Dual-Stage Reflectron gives a excellent resolution with optimizing energy absorption and time convergence.

MDGC-2010

The MDGC-2010 System uses the new and innovative technique of Multiple-heart-cutting.

In contrast to conventional Deans Switch systems the Multiple Heart Cut system shows no retention time shift, even after several cuts in the first dimension. Of course also the retention times in the second dimension show extraordinary stability, as you are used to from using Shimadzu gas Chromatographs.

A multi-dimensional GC/GCMS system performs separation using two columns that have different characteristics. The system has a mechanism in which the components that are insufficiently separated in the first column are introduced (“heart-cut”) to a second, different column. This enables analysis with a level of separation that cannot be attained in conventional single-column analysis.

  • Optimized High-Performance System
  • Improvement of working efficiency with superior operability
  • A Wide Variety of Optional Systems/ Greater Ease of Maintenance
  • Intuitive Operation Supported by the MDGC control software package MDGCsolution

Main MDGC Applications

  • Analysis of Specific Components in Samples Containing Several Matrices Petroleum products (e.g., gasoline, light oil, and kerosene), aromas (e.g., foods and beverages), and optical isomers
  • Analysis of Fine Chemical Products and Impurities in Raw Materials Minor peaks hidden by major components
  • Analysis of Harmful Components in Environmental Samples

The multi-Deans switching mechanism in the MDGC/GCMS-2010 uses a capillary method with a low dead volume. Since the internal surface has been subjected to deactivation processing, even in the analysis of alcohols with a high polarity, the peak form is the same as that obtained in GC analysis. For this reason, a superior level of peak reproducibility is attained, and analysis with a high level of quantitative accuracy is possible.

Also, even after the multi-Deans switching mechanism performs heart-cutting, the retention times of the peaks eluted from the 1st column hardly change. Consequently, a heart-cutting program can be created easily, regardless of the duration of heart-cutting or the number of times it is performed, by specifying times that encompass parts with insufficient separation and target components in the chromatogram obtained with the 1st column without heart-cutting.
