Multi-Charged Ion Analysis Software
LabSolutions LCMS Optional Multi-Charged Ion Analysis Software
Estimates the Molecular Weights of Macromolecules
When analyzing compounds with multiple ionization positions using the ESI method, multi-charged ions are generated. For example, even if a compound has a molecular weight of 10,000, if there are ions with a valence of 20, they are detected with an m/z ratio of 501, whereas ions with a valence of 10 will have an m/z ratio of 1,001. As a result, compounds with molecular weights exceeding the measurement range of a mass spectrometer can be measured. This software calculates the molecular weight of a target compound based on data obtained from a multivalent ion MS spectrum.
Display the MS spectrum and select the menu to perform the multivalent ion analysis.
Automatic Processing of Multiple Peaks
MS spectra can be analyzed in succession, increasing analytical efficiency. In addition, spectral data from the Spectrum Process Table is linked to the multi-charged analysis results, providing for a smooth sequence of procedures from analysis to report creation.
Results can be printed in a LabSolutions report containing the sample data. In addition, the spectral data can be selected, enabling reports to be output on just the target compounds.
Flexible Analysis Parameters
The spectral smoothing, peak detection method, and type of adduct ions can all be changed according to the analysis.

Handbook of Analysis Procedures for EPA method 533, EPA method 537.1 are now available.
The validity of the analysis performed by each laboratory needs to be confirmed by Quality Control (QC). This article section shows the general analytical procedure for fulfilling QC requirements. Note that the procedure could be modified depending on the situation in the lab and analysts.
Shimadzu has released the CLAM-2040, Fully Automated Sample Preparation Module for LCMS
The CLAM-2040 accompanies you on most of the analytical workflow and improves your overall throughput by drastically reducing the sample preparation time. Simply place the blood tubes in position and the CLAM-2040 performs the next steps automatically, from sample extraction, up to the LCMS analysis and data processing.
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of persistent and harmful chemicals that can be commonly found in the environment globally. These anthropogenic chemicals can come from various sources such as manufacturing, industrial applications, food contact materials and consumer products, and eventually end up and accumulate in the water, soil and living organisms.
Interpretation of LC Chromatograms Facilitated by Mass Detection and the Mass-it™ Function
The LCMS-2050 mass spectrometer includes Mass-it functionality that can overlay compound mass (m/z) information, obtained with the mass spectrometer, onto UV chromatograms to support supplementing qualitative analysis results obtained using a UV detector.
Technical Background for the LCMS-2050, a Compact Mass Detector for LC
The LCMS-2050 single quadrupole mass spectrometer is highly compact in size, yet provides both high-speed and high-sensitivity analysis. Shimadzu’s technology has been condensed into an instrument miniaturized to the utmost.
Shimadzu has updated LC/MS/MS Method Package for Cell Culture Profiling Ver. 3 for LabSolutions LCMS
Version 3 of this method package adds metabolites characteristic of CHO cells, which are frequently used in the manufacture of monoclonal antibodies. Together with existing analytes, this Method Package enables the analysis of 144 compounds in under 20 minutes per sample.
