Agilent Technologies Inc unveiled Ultivo, the newest member of its family of triple quadrupole liquid chromatography mass spectrometers (triple quad LC/MS) at the Analytica Anacon India, which took place in Hyderabad recently.

The Ultivo triple quad is a transformative approach to LC/MS that integrates several hardware and software innovations designed to deliver even more improved business results for customers.

It is optimised to address the food and environmental routine testing segments employing triple quad LC/MS systems for quantitative analyses.

Ultivo delivers a robust performance, superior uptime and easier serviceability in a footprint that is 70 per cent smaller than previous instruments.

Customers can now significantly increase their analytical throughput without having to increase the size of their existing laboratories.

“We are a production lab experiencing some significant growth, so the ability to place more instrumentation in the same footprint in the lab is important,” said Johnny Mitchell, president, ESC Lab Sciences, Nashville, Tennessee.

“Without that ability, we would be faced with some expensive construction costs to increase the size of our facilities,” he added.

In addition to its trendsetting size, Ultivo provides reproducible, reliable assays that result in exceptional performance in complex matrices.

Greater ion transmission efficiency leads to optimised sensitivity, and improved, intelligent diagnostics use intuitive readbacks that can quickly identify issues, ensuring optimum uptime.

Furthermore, Ultivo’s new VacShield vacuum provides vent-less ion injector exchange capabilities that reduce wear and tear and facilitate rapid front-end maintenance.

“Agilent prides itself on actively listening to customers, and addressing their needs through the continuous development of innovative technology solutions,” said Monty Benefiel, vice-president and general manager, mass spectrometry division, Agilent.

“Ultivo provides a revolutionary new fit-for-purpose triple quad LC/MS, that is smaller than could have been imagined, yet delivers the superior performance usually associated with much larger instruments,” he added.

“We are excited by our customers’ reactions so far, and expect that Ultivo will dramatically change the LC/MS landscape now, and for years to come,” Benefiel said.

The food and environmental segments are important markets for Agilent. Ultivo’s seamless integration with the Agilent MassHunter Software suite provides high-performance instrument monitoring, data acquisition, analysis and reporting for currently regulated and emerging environmental contaminants and pollutants in our water supplies.

Also, Ultivo’s fine-tuning ensures rigorous accuracy, with selectivity, sensitivity, and precision monitoring, to deliver specific identification and quantitation of a wide range of contaminants, helping keep our worldwide food supplies safe.
