The Agilent 6530 Accurate-Mass Quadrupole Time-of-Flight (Q-TOF) LC/MS system features Agilent Jet Stream Thermal Focusing technology for significantly improved sensitivity, as well as enhanced MassHunter Workstationsoftware for superior data mining and analysis capabilities. These new features, coupled with Agilent’s True High-Definition TOF (True Hi-Def TOF) technology, enable the 6530 Accurate-Mass Q-TOF to deliver exceptional sensitivity,
excellent mass accuracy, fast data acquisition, and streamlined qualitative and quantitative analyses to meet your most challenging research needs.

Sensitive, Accurate-Mass MS and MS/MS Analyses
The Agilent 6530 Accurate-Mass Q-TOF LC/MS system is designed to provide superior data quality and advanced analytical capabilities for profiling, identifying, characterizing, and quantifying low molecular-weight compounds and biomolecules with confidence. Integrating three core Agilent technical innovations - True Hi-Def TOF technology, Agilent Jet Stream Thermal Focusing technology and MassHunter Workstation software - the 6530 Q-TOF platform is ideally suited for accurate-mass analyses of the complex samples encountered in today’s most demanding applications.

Exceptional Mass Accuracy, Sensitivity, and Speed
Agilent True Hi-Def TOF technology, a key feature of Agilent’s 6500 Series Q-TOF LC/MS instruments, delivers outstanding Q-TOF performance characteristics without any performance compromises.

  • Sub 1-ppm mass accuracy improves confidence and reduces false positives
  • > 20,000 mass resolution distinguishes target analytes from interferences
  • Up to 5 orders of in-spectrum dynamic range improves detection of trace-level targets in the presence of high-abundance compounds
  • High femtogram sensitivity enables identification of very low-abundance compounds
  • Fast data acquisition rates of up to 40 spectra/second ensure maximum compatibility with fast LC and high-throughput methods
  • Wide mass range to 20,000 m/z

Enhances LC/MS Sensitivity 5- to 10-fold

Agilent Jet Stream Thermal Focusing technology significantly increases LC/MS sensitivity by improving the spatial focusing of electrospray droplets. The subsequent enhancements in ion density and desolvation result in higher MS signal intensities and improved signal-to-noise ratios. On average, a 5- to 10-fold improvement in MS and MS/MS sensitivity is realized by using Agilent Jet Stream technology at optimal LC flow rates. Easy to use and tune, Agilent Jet Stream technology is available on the 6530 Accurate-Mass Q-TOF LC/MS to provide maximum sensitivity for multiple applications, including the analysis of drug candidates and trace levels of food contaminants, metabolites or biomarkers.


Powerful Data Mining and Analysis Capabilities

Agilent’s MassHunter Workstation software facilitates faster and easier processing of information-rich data generated by the 6530 Accurate-Mass Q-TOF LC/MS. Compound-centric data mining and navigation capabilities enable efficient analyses of complex MS data. A sophisticated molecular feature extraction algorithm automatically retrieves all spectral and chromatographic information for each component in a sample mixture, including those in over-lapping and co-eluting peaks, thereby saving hours of analysis time. MassHunter’s integrated mass profiling tools streamline differential and statistical analyses between sample sets. The software can be used to perform additional processing steps such as molecular formula generation, database or library search, deconvolution, isotope pattern matching or charge-state determination for confident compound identification.


Designed for the Most Demanding Applications

The Agilent 6530 Accurate-Mass Q-TOF LC/MS system delivers exceptional MS and MS/MS analyses for applications that demand the highest accurate-mass measurements, without compromising sensitivity and speed. Integration of Agilent Jet Stream Thermal Focusing technology ensures the highest level of sensitivity for your most challenging samples. Powerful new data mining tools facilitate profiling, characterization, identification and quantification of compounds in complex mixtures. These performance characteristics enable the 6530 Q-TOF system to support demanding applications such as proteomics, metabolomics, impurity testing, product degradation studies, forensics, food safety, and environmental analyses.
