Thermo Fisher Scientific Releases New Whitepaper: Optimizing Mobile Phase Solvent Purity for LC/MS
Published: Jul 23, 2012
Examining LC/MS solvents offered by seven companies, including Thermo Fisher, the white paper presents comparative chromatographic data from four different advanced LC/MS instruments. Data collected includes mass baseline, signal intensity, contamination by PEG and plasticizers, and metal ion content, all of which impact on the ease of MS interpretation. This data suggests that the Optima LC/MS solvent range is best for mobile phase purity.
Optima LC/MS solvents are manufactured and packaged using proprietary techniques to ensure exceptionally low metal ion content and minimal MS background noise. They also offer lot-to-lot consistency and extended column life due to low residue levels, setting the standard of excellence for consistent, reproducible performance in the mobile phase of advanced LC/MS systems.
