This new high-speed platform will significantly improve productivity in high-throughput laboratories performing toxicology, drug discovery, and food safety applications. It incorporates the LDTD (laser diode thermal desorption) ion source technology and is designed to synchronize with the speed of the Shimadzu LCMS-8060 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. The platform ionization mode selector allows users to rapidly switch between liquid chromatography and LDTD technologies without moving or disconnecting any component of the mass spectrometer. With a simple click, the scientist can select the best way to develop, produce, screen and confirm their analysis.
