Agilent Introduces Intelligent LC/MS System for Chromatographers at ASMS 2019

Sponsored by Businesswire

Technologies Inc.
(NYSE: A) introduced the newest member of its
LC/MS portfolio today at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry
Conference (
which is being held June 2 through June 6 in Atlanta, Georgia. The
new Agilent
InfinityLab LC/MSD iQ System
incorporates ‘designed-in’ smart
features, software, and hardware developed specifically for chemists and
chromatographers who will benefit from the intuitive design and greater
level of detail generated by a mass selective detector.

The InfinityLab LC/MSD iQ incorporates intelligent instrument health
monitoring, which is incorporated into the system. Embedded sensors
gather and display data allowing a quick assessment of the system’s
readiness, status, and configuration. The instrument incorporates
features such as a system suitability check that uses a test mixture
designed to permit an overall assessment of the whole liquid
chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC/MS) system before the collection of
data. An early maintenance feedback feature allows lab managers to plan
routine maintenance on the lab’s schedule resulting in a focus on
overall productivity.

The InfinityLab LC/MSD iQ system is designed to sit beneath a stack of Agilent’s
InfinityLab HPLC
instruments, saving valuable lab space. It is
designed to be serviced without dismantling the stack, ensuring that
instrument maintenance and parts exchange is fast and simple. To
accommodate changing space and layout requirements, lab managers will be
able to utilize the new Agilent
InfinityLab Flex Bench MS
, to enable mobility, modular mounting of
all system components, and easy access to all system areas. The Flex
Bench MS also improves lab environments with an integrated solution for
waste management, as well as system noise reduction.

Routine operation of the InfinityLab LC/MSD iQ utilizing Agilent’s
OpenLab CDS Software
provides the most efficient and reliable method
for data collection, analysis, and reporting, developed with a focus on
ease-of-use and data integrity all in one system. The InfinityLab LC/MSD
iQ eliminates the complexity of MS data acquisition with new features
such as the auto-acquire mode that makes method setup even easier.

“Chromatography labs can now eliminate complexity, increase
productivity, and gain certainty with Agilent’s new LC/MS which delivers
an additional level of detail, ease-of-use, in a space-saving design,
and with intelligence built-in,” said Monty Benefiel, vice president,
and general manager of Agilent’s Mass Spectrometry Division. “The
InfinityLab LC/MSD iQ System is the simplest and quickest path to
robust, reliable, and routine mass-based detection.”

Accompanying the launch of the LC/MSD iQ is a new release of Agilent’s
MassHunter WalkUp Software
for open-access drug discovery and
chemistry labs, developed side-by-side with medicinal chemists. This new
version has a touch-screen enabled interface and preconfigured analyses
and reports that further streamlines simple sample submission and
requires virtually no training to use.
