Lower Detection Limits
The 320-MS delivers high sensitivity with low noise and less maintenance. The patented API interface, with its dual off-axis needle and capillary provides efficient desolvation with minimum contamination. A high performance skimmer and quadrupole ion guide allow maximum ion transmission for outstanding signal intensity. Varian’s patented 180º curved collision cell provides additional noise reduction for difficult matrices. You get the benefits of a detector that is off-axis to the source without the use of a conversion dynode.
Flexible, Rugged, Sensitive
Varian’s patent pending, computer-controlled gas temperature (SelecTemp™) and flow (SelecFlow™) give you the flexibility to develop methods with greater ruggedness and sensitivity. An integrated syringe pump and six port valve, with time-programmable software control, accelerate method development.
Sensitivity When You Need It
When we say femtogram sensitivity, we mean it. Whether you’re doing simple flow injection with the built-in syringe pump (Figure A), or on-column analysis using the new 212-LC pumps (Figure B), you’ll be impressed with the 320-MS sensitivity.
Time to Dwell
What if you could give your mass spec more time to ‘think’? Well with the new 320-MS, you can. The ability to set dwell times is one of the new features in the Varian MS Workstation.
The ability to customize your MRM transitions allows you better flexibility to use your scan time wisely, giving you better, more reliable results, faster and easier.
Compact Productivity The linear footprint of the 320-MS system is one of the smallest of any triple quad LC/MS – under 72 centimeters (28 inches).
The 320-MS gives you the most options for configuring the instrument to meet your needs:
- Switch from LC to GC interface and back again
- Change ionization modes between ESI and APCI
- GC sources include: EI, PCI and NCI
- Single Quad to Triple Quad upgrade
