High-Performance Liquid Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer
Ultra high-speed mass spectrometer compatible for the first time with ultra high-speed liquid chromatography
UFLC Quality - Speed is Power.
LCMS-2020 is optimized for the Prominence UFLC/UFLCXR Ultra Fast Liquid Chromatograph. Novel patent-pending technologies offer significantly enhanced scan speed and positive-negative ion polarity switching time, which are essential for UFLC, and simultaneously boost sensitivity. The instrument combines the excellent compound selectivity that is a feature of the mass spectrometer with significantly enhanced total productivity – from method development to analysis. The LCMS-2020 plays a useful role in a range of fields, including the synthesis of compounds in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
To detect both positive and negative ions, analysis is performed while switching between the positive and negative ionization modes. The LCMS-2020 adopts patented high-voltage power supply technology (Patent: US7855355) to achieve an ultra-fast polarity switching time of just 15 msec.
In MS scanning, a range of mass to charge ratios are determined in successive 0.1 m/z steps. This is controlled by applying a rapidly changing voltage to the quadrupole (quadrupole rods). By adopting new technology (patent pending), ...

What is a Method Package?
Method Package contains ready-to-use analytical conditions and sample pretreatment procedures optimized for Shimadzu mass spectrometers and specific analytical applications.
Shimadzu has released the LC/MS/MS Methid Package for Glycosaminoglycans
The study of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) or mucopolysaccharides, and enzymes involved in GAG metabolism is an important aspect of clinical research related to lysosomal storage. Quantitation of GAGs in bones, joints, the brain, heart, lungs, and other organs is a useful tool in this field of study. GAGs can be quantitated by measuring the sulfated disaccharides produced by enzymatic degradation of GAGs. The research group led by Hironori Kobayashi of Shimane University Hospital, Clinical Laboratory Division, has been instrumental in the development of methods for the detection of sulfated disaccharides by LC/MS.
Shimadzu has released the LC/MS/MS Method Package for PFAS in Drinking Water.
